On Pet Ville Pet Hotel's acre of playground, dogs lope and bound through two synthetic-turf yards and an air-conditioned activity center with slides and tunnels. A pool shaped like a dog bone sprays canines with jets of water during hot days, proving more useful than a dog bone shaped like a swimming pool. Pet-care technicians certified by the American Boarding Kennels Association make fast friends with the animals during private and group play sessions. Trained in pet nutrition and hygiene, the technicians carefully monitor daily eliminations and general health. At the pet hotel's grooming center, canine and feline aestheticians administer jacuzzi baths, shedding remedies, and pedicures.
