The Pooch Pad is a 6,000-square-foot pet resort with a staff that accommodates visiting pups in spacious cageless suites designed to emulate life at home. With space enough for two tail-waggers, each executive suite is equipped with comfortable bedding, decorative artwork, and a Bluetooth earpiece for international barking conferences. Playtime each day at the indoor park with rubber flooring gives dogs the opportunity to stretch their paws among their peers, while soothing music pours out of speakers throughout the facility to elicit sweet, slobbery dreams. Going to great lengths to preserve pet safety, The Pooch Pad's fire-detection units and monitored security systems ensure that no pooch bakes a MilkBone casserole for more than four hours. Larger midrise suites are available for upgrade, as well as nine location-themed Presidential suites that are replete with flat-screen televisions and webcam options for pet owners to check on their pups.

Bruno’s Bath House elevates the dog-boarding experience by housing pups inside plush suites that will remind them of home.

This attentive treatment carries over into Bruno’s Spaw, where dogs receive baths with plush add-ons such as aromatherapy, massage, and Pawdicures. Edible and wearable doggie accessories are also available at Bruno’s Bistro and Boutique.

Beauty & the Bistro Café & Catering's uniformed staff add friendly elbow grease to their catered social and corporate events. Expectant mothers round up posses of up to 30 guests for a two-hour takeover of the bistro's party room, where a sign-in and gift table greet guests and assign code names written in baby talk. Load up on human fuel from a buffet spread, filling antique china, glasses, and silverware with comestibles including seasonal fruits, parmesan pasta salad, and sliced croissant sandwiches stuffed with generous portions of chicken salad. As light dinner music plays over excited conversations and debates on the origin of the rattle, the staff quiets wailing sweet teeth with slices of guest-provided cake.
