The founders of Starr Barks launched their self-service dog-washing operation because they were tired of the mess and discomfort caused by scrubbing their pups at home. Rather than viewing bath time as a chore, owners can bond with their four-legged friends while Starr Barks staffers provide them with shampoo, conditioner, towels, and dog treats. To prevent sore backs and knees, bathtubs stand at waist height and accommodate canines of all sizes. Large dogs ascend to watery bliss by way of a ladder, which saves owners the hassle of lifting them or training them to jump at the smell of soap. A safety line prevents dogs from leaping out of the tub and injuring themselves or other pets. Tidy aprons keep humans dry, and a professional dryer ensures that pets leave fluffy and water-free. Throughout the entire cleaning process, the Starr Barks coffee bar stands at the ready so dog owners can reinforce their own good behavior with coffee and snacks.

Founded on the belief that dogs, like people, deserve a bit of pampering, Dee's Sanctuary Grooming and Spa aims to spoil canines with doting affection and care. A standard visit begins with a relaxing hydro-massage bathing ritual, relaxing muscles stressed from long walks and playdates with dematerializing Cheshire cats. Following all grooming rituals—which can include basics such as nail trims and combing or more involved skin and coat treatments—dogs are escorted to their own serene zen den outfitted with soft bedding, toys, water, and a comforting view of the entire spa interior.

Freshly back from vacation, a customer walks expectantly into the room. A golden retriever bounds clumsily up, its tongue flapping a rosy greeting and mouth stretched far back into a smile. When the dog’s owner takes up the leash, thanks the staff for caring for her energetic pup, and turns to leave, she feels a tug on the leash. Her dog has planted his feet firmly, trying to back into a sitting position—clearly, he wants them both to stay put.
According to proprietor Lisa Schettino, this is an everyday occurrence at Camp Canine. After a difficult experience finding pet care for her own dog, Lisa set out to create an environment that would not only keep critters safe, but make them want to stay. Now, each Camp Canine location has a resort-style atmosphere sprawled over 9,000–15,000 square feet.
Stressed four-legged friends wiggle with glee during massages, shedding stress from squeaky toys giving them the silent treatment. Against a bass rumble of purring, punctuated by canine yips, green-tea and chamomile facials drive dirt from wrinkled faces and soften wiry fur. As they wait for their next spa appointment, dogs can roam freely in a fenced-in play lot. After tearing through a maze of tunnels and obstacles, they splash into the pool and emerge to toss their cool, wet fur, bejeweling the air with spray. An air-conditioned indoor play area shelters pets from extreme heat and teenagers listening to vacuums at high volume..
Owners too can rest at ease during their pets’ vacation, knowing their animals lounge in private rooms with plush bedding and staff watching 24 hours a day. They check up on their furry friends via scheduled Skype sessions and various webcams set up throughout the Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale facilities. Those locations also pick up and drop off pets that haven’t yet learned how to operate a manual transmission.
