You can hear the dogs before you can see them: the sound of playful barks and panting as tails thump on the ground. The happy pups at In The Dog House spend up to 10 hours a day romping with like-sized dogs throughout the 7,200-square-foot play area at their disposal. The space is divided into four indoor and two outdoor areas, with larger dogs and smaller dogs playing in separate areas to prevent the little dogs trying to hitch piggyback rides atop the larger ones. Canines spending the night can lie down in their own individual, climate-controlled kennel.

To owners Rosanne and Tom Hayes, For Pet's Sake is more of a motto than a business name. Rosanne, a registered nurse, gives pets the same love, care, and scratches behind the ear every family member deserves. With her husband Tom, she eliminates the stress and anxiety pets experience at kennels, opting instead to take care of dogs and cats in their own homes. When owners are away, the pet sitters play with furry family members, take them for walks, and administer any required medications.
Back at their brick-and-mortar shop, For Pet's Sake's groomers—each of whom has at least 20 years experience—ready pets for daily gambols or formal dinner parties, using hypoallergenic shampoos and conditioners to silken coats and never caging animals.
Of dogs, Mark Twain once said, “The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.” Cats, he claimed, were “the cleanest, cunningest, and most intelligent things I know.” Most pet owners think like Twain—believing their pets to exist somewhere between royalty and deity. Nicola and Chris Salt, owners of The Grooming Room Pet Spa LLC, aim to treat each furry client accordingly, and will work with all breeds, from purebreds to dogs they suspect are actually small men in dog suits.
The Salts approach each treatment like it’s their first, meticulously gathering background information on each new pet before they proceed. Then, within their clean, cheerful salon, they spruce up cats and dogs with comprehensive baths, hot-oil treatments, and facials. Client comfort is their top priority, so they tailor treatments to give extra table time to seniors and to calm nervous animals. The proprietors also aim for environmental friendliness, with a hand-selected collection of all-natural products from top brands such as Eagle Pack, Angels' Eyes, and Dead Sea Mineral Mud treatment.
Owner Jim Carpenter opened the first Wild Birds Unlimited shop in Indianapolis in 1981 in order to turn his love of nature and bird watching into a full-time career. Today, Wild Birds Unlimited has spread to more than 275 stores across the United States and Canada, with each location helmed by avid ornithological enthusiasts. Wild Birds Unlimited visitors find a huge inventory of quality bird and bird-watching supplies, from feeders to birdbaths to binoculars. Guides make short work of identifying feathered tree dwellers, and the store's special seeds help attract elusive birds, such as the Boston Larry.
