The Animal Hospital of Polaris knows how important the human-animal bond is and works to keep those bonds strong. During daycare and boarding services, staffers provide pets with TLC. Owners can even check in on their pups throughout the day as the daycare and boarding facilities are equipped with webcams.
The animal hospital's veterinarians provide urgent, preventative, and surgical care including x-rays and wound repair for small pets. An on-site spa and grooming parlor ensures animals look as healthy on the outside as they are on the inside, and training services teach animals proper behavior, including sitting, staying, and keeping their pinkies out when sipping a cup of tea.
Animal Care Unlimited's grooming guru, Lynda, scrubs, snips, and styles canine hides with diligence and delicacy. Four-legged patrons are greeted with a gentle shampoo bath to neutralize the unsavory smells of late-night poker games, followed by a blow-dry and tress trim—including sanitary clip and paw-pad snip. The beast beautician then disinfects dog derrieres, purges and plucks cruddy ear canals, prunes pointy paws, and highlights cheekbones with an understated rouge. Fees vary depending on size and breed, but scrub downs start at $40 for wallet-sized woofers, with the average grooming around $48. Any remaining Groupon dollars can go toward a future pooch pamper. Pups must be prepped with rabies, distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations before their primp.
While pooches are part of the family, unfortunately they can't always go along on the family vacation. My Dog's Spot makes up for what they may miss out on by giving them comfortable quarters to sleep, play, and eat in. They also get to socialize with other four-legged friends, catching up on the latest gossip around the proverbial hydrant. For pups that require only a short stay, half- and full-day doggie daycare are available as well.
Posche Paws Pet Resort & Spa caters to canine comfort and safety by staffing one employee for every 20 resident dogs, as well as an onsite veterinarian. Pets stay in private 4'x9' enclosures, which are regularly cleaned and sanitized and come equipped with a bed and food. Several suites also feature live webcams so that families can scrutinize their dogs’ hands during poker games. Music or television pipes through the building to provide familiar noises that ease stress, and during the day, pets can run outside or play with toys in the 3,500-square-foot facility. Spa treatments also add a touch of luxury for furry companions and include flea baths, coat clippings, and blueberry facials.
Dogs reign supreme at Bark Ave, where a team of dog-obsessed caretakers play with them and groom their coats. Doggy daycare affords plenty of romping time followed by overnight boarding. In addition to boarding dogs, staff groom furry guests of all sizes and hair density, showering them with extra pampering by brushing their teeth, painting their nails, and de-shedding their lustrous coats. Hypoallergenic and medicated shampoos are also available for sensitive skin or dogs allergic to themselves.
