The Animal Park, a full-service grooming, boarding, and daycare facility, bestows quadruped companions with a cage-free retreat. In each of the supervised indoor and outdoor small-dog (30 lbs. and under, starting at $20/night) and large-dog (more than 30 lbs., starting at $25/night) facilities, tail-waggers share olfactory secrets or pose for CM Coolidge paintings. Litter-box denizens may enjoy a stay in the Kattery Room (starting at $12/night), with its toys, mazes, climbing wall, and window perches.
At Dogs R Us, pups lap up first-class care from award-winning trainers and a knowledgeable, keen-eyed staff. Four-pawed guests come and go as they please between a climate-controlled indoor play area and a spacious outdoor yard, where they can bound through swimming pools or take a breather under the canopy.
The facility's full-service grooming shop keeps bow-wows looking fresh, and an onsite pet store stocks its shelves with all the necessary supplies for keeping pets happy and healthy. Tail-wagging worthy luxuries continue into the evening with overnight stays, which take place in bedrooms large enough for pooches to fit all their belongings, such as toys, beds, and life-size cardboard cutouts of their owners.
Joan and Dennis Dalebout have owned Abraxas Pet Resort since 1982, and along with their staff, they pamper pets with meticulous grooming services and daycare or overnight care. Nestled inside a barn-like structure known as the Big Dog House, the resort boasts a groomery that employs quality pet products unavailable in most pet stores. Outdoors, patches of grass and sand as well as an exercise area help pooches to play off excess energy, whereas small playhouses and pools provide ideal spots to lounge or work on a tan.
With spring spreading like a bag of spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up a Stanley six-piece screwdriver set for $6.99, a VPT rip hammer for $8.49, and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy four-piece premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge. Get keys made for $1.99 a pop, or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine ($30 a day to rent).
Little Dogs Resort is designed to cater to mostly toy breed dogs. While some dogs can be under 30lbs., their temperament and needs are sometimes more athletic than our general doggie population is comfortable with. If your dog falls into this group, please call to schedule an interview so we can keep everyone safe. :)
