Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew.

For Joseph Giannini and Tommy Spinosa, the standard cement-and-chain-link boarding facilities they encountered simply would not do for their pooch. They decided to create their own facility where pets could live like kings among dangling chandeliers, plush sofas, and a staff who know them each by name.
The product of their imaginations is a cage-free boarding zone where every dog and cat forgoes the confines of stressful, cramped crates, and a chaperone is always on hand to ensure pets are safe and not blowing their life savings by shopping for chewable shoes on the Internet. A pickup and drop-off taxi runs pups to and from the boarding facility. And each dog is live on a webcams, where owners can check in to ease their minds. Aside from doggie boarding and daycare, Urban Out Sitters’ services also include at-home kitty sitting for self-possessed felines who don't want to pack up their things and leave home simply because their humans did. An onsite retail completes the pet-care puzzle, selling grooming products, food, and collars and leashes.

Inspired by a search for quality dog care for their own dog, the owners of Furtastik—finding no options that satisfied their wants—decided to create a 3.000-square-foot, climate-controlled space themselves. Now, they operate a hands-on, cheerful, and intimate facility for dogs and dog services. Licensed and accredited groomers sculpt away excess piles of fur after they clean, wash, and buff dogs into bright new existence, and organic food products line the front room for canine perusal. Meanwhile, daycare and boarding enrollments are limited to 20 and 10 dogs at a time, respectively, allowing for individual attention and care during the cage-free services.
