Dogs rarely get lonesome at Dogtown Cincinnati. That's because they'll be spending too much time playing with the other dogs and the staff. Whether inside or outside, pups have ample space to run, jump, and play statue, and even overnight, it's like a big slumber party, where everyone bunks down together and they're under the watchful eye of the faithful human crew. Owners can also schedule grooming appointments or training sessions, while cats stay for the day or overnight in their own private area.

At The Pet Spot, a team of over 30 animal-loving dog and cat specialists train and groom the furry guests of their day care and kennel. Felines will vacation in luxury cat condos while their human roommates are out of town, while dogs enjoy plenty of belly rubs, baths, and exercise during daycare and boarding. Each kennel room is climate-controlled and replete with elevated beds, glass windows, and flatscreen televisions showing dog-related programming and local news translated into barks.

The professional animal chaperones go to great lengths to ensure the safety of each pet—they carry out extensive temperament tests to prevent fights, and webcams for owners to check in on their furry friends remotely.

Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa founder Ray Schneider understands why his clients would want to pamper their pups with massage and reiki sessions or warm-water swims. As he told Dan Monk of the Business Courier, "It’s a relationship that’s very hard to explain. When you have a dog, you can understand it.” The Blue Ash resident and entrepreneur created the sprawling, 25,000-square-foot pet hotel—and its second location in Boston—because he realizes the lengths to which people will go to care for their furry friends.

Swathed in upscale atmosphere, the spa is outfitted with all the comforts of home and more; after touring the facilities, Jeff Elkus of David's Voice said, "I wish the last resort I visited had half the amenities of Red Dog." Dogs can stay in private, themed boarding suites with flat-screen TVs and owner-monitored webcams. They exercise and socialize in climate- and airflow-controlled play areas, romp in a three-acre dog park, and don buoyancy vests to soothe achy joints in the heated aquatic center. The hotel also offers multilevel lodging for cats, as well as canine grooming and training services.

Schneider hired and trained a staff for around-the-clock supervision and care. Dogs who are aging, have health issues, or secretly write reviews for Frommer's get special attention in a room with a fireplace and stretch lounges.

Ohio Alleycat Resource & Spay/Neuter Clinic (OAR) works to enrich the lives of cats and communities in Greater Cincinnati through low-cost spay or neuter surgeries as well as a no-kill adoption center dedicated to finding loving, permanent homes for cats and kittens. Along with its standard spay or neuter services, OAR helps to protect feral cats and keep the cat population in check through its trap-neuter-return program, in which cats are humanely trapped and spayed or neutered before being returned to their outdoor lives.

If a dog isn't tired, it isn't happy. That's why WagsPark fenced in their three acres of land. Now, during play sessions, canines jump, run, and roll to a state of blissful exhaustion without worrying about wandering off. After trotting through manicured lawns and agility courses, dogs jump into a cool, spring-fed lake with tidy gravel banks. A dancing fountain also sprinkles coats with refreshing droplets. While dogs play, owners can sidle up to the bar area where a big-screen TV displays the antics of well-trained humans.

During daycare hours, dogs roam freely between the temperature-controlled building and the outdoor play areas. Certified staffers always stay nearby to make sure they stay happy and safe. When it's time to go home, owners can give their furry friends the spa treatment or wash them up in a self-service dog bath. WagsPark also features a training academy where pups learn to obey commands and play well with others.

Animal Care Centers

In Animal Care Centers’ climate-controlled boarding facilities, dogs lounge in the lap of luxury—their VIP dog suites are outfitted with TVs and overlook a koi pond complete with a waterfall. However, perhaps the most important amenity is a team of veterinarians, on call around the clock. And the vets are some of the best in town; the practice has been named "Best Vet in Cincinnati" for four consecutive years by City Beat Magazine. For the past 30 years, the vets have administered vaccinations, screened for heartworm and leukemia, and performed pet dentistry, rather than just teaching pets to chew with wind-up chattering teeth.
