The Boarding Bungalow lavishes affection on its furry tenants, allotting plenty of playtime and a minimum of six walks per day for boarding pups. Team members trained in pet first aid oversee the premises, allowing dogs to play in large and small groups, intervening if a canine is causing trouble or trying to organize a poker game. Dogs spend the night in private suites, whereas cats relax in cabanas featuring multiple ledges and smaller animals such as birds, hamsters, and rabbits are supervised in their cages. In addition to boarding and doggy daycare, the staff offers pet-spa services such as haircuts, baths, facial scrubs, and nail trimming.
Guests turn in for the night to recline in plush beds as they listen to soft music and enjoy meals delivered by attentive staff members. Rather than venturing out in the morning to shop and sightsee, however, these lodgers would rather spend some quality time with a chew toy. When away from home, pet guests at Pappy's Pet Lodge lie in the lap of luxury with amenities typically found in four-star human resorts. Orthopedic, chew-proof Kuranda pet beds cosset pups while they rest from the day's three walks and bounty of play time with similar-sized dogs. Experienced trainers also lead classes that help banish bad behaviors, from chewing on the couch and barking excessively to borrowing the car without asking.
Founded in 1980, Man's Best Friend welcomes pets and their caretakers for training, grooming, and boarding services. A variety of training programs are designed to fit different pet personalities and specific goals such as obedience training and home protection. Boarding offerings include overnight stays and daycare, with separate facilities for dogs and cats complete with climate control and ample space.
