Chateau Marmutt grants dogs and their owners respite from their daily duties with a canine haven designed to give dogs an outlet for socialization and relaxation. During Monday–Saturday dog daycare, pintsize pooches attend to daily schedules and conference calls in a cozy office setting, and big dogs frolic in a colorful playland of slides and kiddie pools. Canine-education classes instill obedient behavior and break bad habits in five weekly installments, and a fully stocked puppy boutique rewards tail waggers for good conduct. Canine chompers gleam after thorough teeth brushing, and aromatherapy grooming combs furry friends with scents such as citrus, oatmeal, and brand-new tennis ball.
There's no shortage of dog-friendly space at Kennel Club LAX whose sprawling facilities include a 12,000 square foot pet hotel with an additional 12,000 square feet of outdoor play space. Pooches enjoying a daytime or overnight stay in the 24,000-square foot pet hotel romp around during individual or group play time, which might include gamboling across the grass, napping in private lodgings, and diving into a swimming pool under the watchful eyes of on-site attendants. For overnight visitors, The Kennel Club LAX offers a range of accommodation, from standard rooms to more luxuriant themed cottages with flat screen TVs.
The passionate staff at K9s Only doggie-boarding house keeps dogs of all temperaments safe, social, and pampered during their families' getaways. Rovers snooze soundly in a soft pile of blankets atop cozy beds within the private 8'x6' rooms, which grant pups room to roam and hoard at least 1,000 chew toys. Dogs keen on socializing venture out into the center’s indoor and outdoor dog parks, romping around with other friendly, fully vaccinated pups. Introverted Lassies can caper about on private walks or sniff out adventure in the private dog park before making their way back into their climate-controlled abodes to quietly read the latest issue of Dog Fancy. The enthusiastic staff keeps each dog on their normal feeding schedule, heaping bowls with Wellness dog chow or owner-provided cuisine twice a day, and will dispense any necessary medications.
Outfitted with spas and treadmills, Pooch Hotels are nearly the same as human accommodations, with one key difference: your dog might get a tummy-rub with their turndown service. These venues were all designed by dog-lovers whose main priority was canine comfort, regardless of the length of each guest's stay.
Dogs on daycare visits, for example, are sorted by size and temperament before entering one of multiple play areas. Monitored by human "Pack Leaders," they socialize amidst toys, treats, and wading pools at select locations, or run outside if the weather and facilities permit. Those who have booked a room for the night can relax in a private suite, outfitted with a glass door rather than bars. These range from standard to presidential and even palace suites?rooms outfitted with luxury bedding and flat-screen televisions tuned to dog-friendly programming. Customers might also schedule a spa appointment for their pooch, choosing from services such as baths, "pawdicures," and even facials.
The hotels pursue peace of mind for owners as actively as they pamper their dogs. Certain locations have installed web cameras in the play areas and suites, enabling people to check in on their pets and guilt them about the time they napped instead of writing a postcard. Staff remain on-hand at all times to welcome newcomers and care for already-snoozing pups.
Offering everything from basic schooling to in-home private lessons, “I Said Sit!” is a one-stop shop for puppy behavior, and a place where dog owners can feel safe taking their four-legged loved ones for training. Tucked away on Robertson Boulevard near the 10 freeway, “I Said Sit!” offers both four week comprehensive behavioral instruction programs (including lessons for the owner) and more limited six-lesson small group classes. They even offer training for puppies, where they learn to socialize and are housebroken. All the in-facility programs take place at the 1,600 -square foot “I Said Sit!” training room space, with rubber floors (for paw comfort). Award winning founder Jonathan Klein is considered one of the best trainers in the city.
