Deep-cleansing facials. Relaxing massages. Feather hair extensions. These are just three of the treatments that await Luxury Pet Spa & Boutique's canine and feline visitors. The spa staff believes that pets deserve the same luxury afforded to their human counterparts, and this is reflected in everything from its hypoallergenic products, to its holistic pet food, to its decor: chocolate-colored walls, cushy armchairs, and the stained wood table Lassie used to write her memoirs. Chandeliers spill light across the treatment rooms, where groomers shampoo fur, trim nails, and cleanse ears. However, these are just the preliminary steps to an animal makeover. The groomers also style fur with the finesse of hairdressers and use airbrushes to paint fur with colorful accents.
Daniel Reitman, the eponymous owner of Dan’s Dog Walking and Pet Sitting, lends a helping paw to pet owners with services that cater to all manner of beast and bird. Daniel and his fellow pet experts take pride in their long list of repeat customers—a testament to their hard work as well as their ability to establish relationships with the animals in their care. Vet-recommended and fully bonded and insured walkers and overnight sitters take time to learn about pets’ dietary restrictions and exercise habits before they even meet, allowing them to immediately build a friendship defined by wagging tails and purrs. The eco-friendly company demonstrates its commitment to animals and the environment by using leashes made from recycled materials, cleaning up with biodegradable sanitary bags, and discouraging dogs from chewing on fossil fuels.
From the outside, Queens Animal Hospital might look like it was recently converted from a family home. In fact, it's been an animal hospital since 1955, and the humble design scheme was deliberate: what pet wouldn't want to climb the steps of a friendly-looking house filled with friendly people? Inside, they'll find a staff headed by Dr. Beshoy Rafla, who specializes in dogs and cats but also welcomes birds, reptiles, and other small exotic pets. He and his veterinary techs perform a wide array of services: in addition to standard checkups, there are facilities for surgery, dental care, grooming, and, for dogs, even boarding in quarters that include indoor and outdoor runs. Pets also don't need to leave the grounds for x-rays, ultrasounds, or EKGs, and their humans can even opt for microchipping to keep them safe if they ever get lost in a funhouse's hall of mirrors.
Twelve years ago, Heidi Ganahl decided to pursue her dream and opened the first Camp Bow Wow in Denver. Camp Bow Wow has now burgeoned into a national franchise with more than 200 locations in 40 states, and her success has earned attention from the likes of CNN Money, CNBC, and various other news outlets.
One of the secrets to Heidi’s success? Her love of dogs. Born from a desire to provide a safe, healthy place where owners could drop their pets instead of cooping them up at home, each Camp Bow Wow location functions more like an all inclusive kids’ summer camp than a depressing kennel. Pooches are free to frolic with each other in indoor play areas and spend their afternoons making fun of the postman’s latest haircut, all while their owners watch them on Camper Cam video streams. For overnight visitors, temperature-controlled cabins host beds with fleece blankets, and the camp counselors give each canine camper a campfire treat before putting them to bed. Dogs and owners feel at ease knowing that certified camp counselors, trained in dog behavior and pet first aid, are close at hand.
Along with the visiting dogs, this Camp Bow Wow location also functions as a foster home for Project Halo, a local no-kill shelter.

Doggie day care or boarding spares you the guilt of keeping your pawed protégé in a cage while you're working overtime, flying away on business trips and vacations, or staring at your dog while he's in a cage. During the day, NY Dog Spa dogs gambol freely with their fellow hounds in group play. Each boarded dog gets a private run or cage (depending on size) for sleeping and eating, and boarding rates include one individual walk every day (a dog weighing less than 20 pounds costs $54 a night for five nights or more). Facilities are healthy, happy environments where only fully vaccinated and spayed/neutered dogs are accepted. Playgroups for dog day care are formed based on size, age, and temperament (no aggressive dogs are allowed for boarding or day care). Day-care rates also depend on size (a dog that weighs 21 to 49 pounds costs $37 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m).
