Ears tucked back, tail in a straight line, and paws moving so fast that he looks like he's flying. Rushing to greet one of the kennel employees with his tongue hanging out, the dog flops onto the grass, showing off his belly. Happily exhausted pups are a familiar sight at Labby Lane Kennel, where play is a No. 1 priority. Its largest outdoor play park spans a full acre, providing a grassy expanse wide enough for pups?whether they're pugs or greyhounds?to get up to full speed without stealing the family car. The boarding and daycare facility stretches across the 5-acre property that proprietors Jeff and Crystal call home, and it features four additional play yards to help burn off your pet's extra energy. Overnight, dogs bunk in climate-controlled suites that have both indoor and outdoor space and are large enough to share with furry friends or family members. Pet owners can also board feline guests in their own exclusive area.
Marcia and Jim Wentzell have been serving the Cobb County animal community for more than 15 years, working with rescue groups, homeless dogs, and family pets. Jim graduated as a certified obedience trainer in 1998, and then went on to serve as the president of the Georgia Network of Professional Petsitters until 2002. In 2005, he and Marcia opened A Passion For Pets Daycare and Grooming, where they offer grooming, training, daycare, and cage-free sleepovers for dogs.
During daycare, dogs romp, run, and work out four-part howling harmonies on a full acre of open-play space. Four-legged guests that are spending the night also roam freely thanks to cage-free sleepovers with overnight human companionship. At the full-service salon, staffers primp dogs with full bath and spa treatments that include services such as gum massages and even blueberry facials. The onsite Doggy-Liscious Bake Shop provides yummy pet treats such as cupcakes or banana biscotti, and the store also sells natural and holistic pet foods. A Passion for Pets also specializes in agility training and in-home petsitting.
Set on 5 lush acres of land, AA Pet Kennel & Resort, Inc. has cared for critters since 1958, employing a staff of loving pet aficionados to oversee pets for boarding. During boarding, staffers let pets romp around outside in a fenced-in area. For an additional charge, they also take them for nature walks through the grounds’ expansive trails. Overnight boarding treats pets to premium food and plenty of love as soft music plays in the building.
For more than two decades , the dedicated staff at Pet Med Plus have combined advanced technology and old-fashioned warm-heartedness to care for dogs and cats. The clinic’s on-site lab allows for faster blood test results, and digital radiography helps locate areas of concern or stores of hidden biscuits. Pet Med Plus also provides alternative therapies specially designed for furry companions, including laser therapy intended to reduce pain and inflammation and stress-relieving Reiki. Boarding services grant pets a comfortable home away from home, complete with a large yard, and a retail area stocks treats and toys.
Although Hog Mountain Animal Hospital specializes in urgent treatment for furry friends, its mission doesn't stop there. Regular checkups help ensure dogs and cats remain healthy, and dental screenings keep their teeth primed to munch on their food and any report cards that happen to be right next to their food. Grooming and boarding services round out the hospital's offerings, keeping pets tick-free through the summer months and happy while their families are away.
