Like a Caribbean resort, Yuppy Puppy Pet Spa soothes away the stress and worries that build up in canine minds while their owners are off relaxing at work. Pups of all breeds and sizes—as well as cats—jump into the arms of loving staff members for grooming and pampering sessions. Services range from the ordinary, such as nail clipping and ear trimming, to the opulent, such as blueberry and vanilla facial masks or soothing mud baths for the whole body. But personality trumps beauty at play camp, where dogs’ dispositions decide which of three indoor camps they’ll call home for the day. Pooches can also pack their toothbrushes and curlers for overnight stays in private luxury suites—some equipped with flat-screen TVs—or the social lounge, where pups play all day and curl up in front of a movie at night.

Yips and Yaps just might be a better place than home, especially when dogs' owners are away. Here, pets can get groomed, play with friends, or even stay overnight while their owners travel. Though staff provides bowls, beds, and blankets for boarding charges, pet owners are welcome to pack their pups' own belongings from home. During daycare sessions in the center's outdoor and indoor play yards, pets acquire crucial socialization skills they can't get at home, no matter how often they try to play tug of war with the houseplants.

Hotel guests lick scoops of salmon or bacon-cheddar frozen yogurt before watching Disney movies in private suites. Every dog's anthropomorphic dream comes true at Petropolis Pet Center, where a dog and cat hotel indulges pets' whims with gourmet treats, snuggly blankets, feline jungle gyms, and other animal accouterments. After checking in at the front desk—a hangout for mascot Charlie the tortoise—trained staffers lead pets to lodgings or to dog day camp, where pups divided into three compatible size groups romp in the grass or atop playground equipment. An onsite grooming salon trims coats, fluffs fur with soothing low-heat and low-noise dryers, and brushes teeth to remove lingering crumbs from Petropolis Barkery's epicurean baked goods. Dogs can refine their manners at training school, learning how to sit, stay, and leave a calling card at every hydrant, before moving on to competition training. Petropolis's Pet Career School transforms amateur dog lovers into pro groomers or certified trainers and helps careers to get off the ground with job-placement assistance.

Sprawling over 1 1/2 acres of fenced-in land, South Paw Acres takes care of canine companions with climate-controlled, cage-free indoor play areas, comfy beds, a plethora of toys, and an on-call veterinarian. A dedicated dog-sitter monitors all playgroups, which are grouped according to tail-waggers’ size, temperaments, and Forbes 100 listings. South Paw Acres boards no more than 10 dogs at a time, ensuring that every pup receives a high level of interaction and affection. After romping around the pooch playground, outfitted with a refreshing pond and tree-shaded lounge areas, furry friends can listen to soothing music and watch animal-centric television shows while awaiting the return of their owners. All canines must be more than 4 months old and have updated vaccination records, be spayed or neutered, and have the ability to tie their own shoes.

Set in Purina's spacious Visitor Center and surrounding premises, the five-day event lets fall-fanatic families usher in seasonal scares and crunchy leaves with autumnal activities such as tractor-drawn hayrides, storytelling, meet-and-greets with friendly witches, and magic shows by performers from the International Brotherhood of Magicians. In keeping with Purina's roots as a purveyor of kinship between people and pets, youngsters can feast their primary head orbs on live farmyard animals, duck herding demonstrations, cow-milking displays, and costumed canines competing in a series of flying disc, agility, and diving contests. Bring the entire family or the gaggle of mischievous, otherworldly imps living in your basement for refreshing fall fun.
