The staff of canine lovers behind Piper's Playhouse elevates the typical kennel experience, fostering an atmosphere that encourages dogs to socialize, play, and feel as comfortable as they would if they were still at home. Four-legged lodgers are divided into two groups—one for larger and more energetic dogs, and the other for smaller, senior, and bookworm dogs. Each group gets its own spacious room fortified with toys and cushy beds, and the staff rotates groups outside for bathroom breaks and fresh-air romps. In addition to group playtime, each dog gets a bit of one-on-one time with Piper's companion humans. Further services include grooming and overnight boarding, giving dogs a place to stay any night of the year. All canines are welcome, provided they are nonaggressive, spayed or neutered, and have all required vaccinations, which are listed on Piper's Playhouse's FAQ page.
The National Animal Control Association–certified staff at Planet Doggiewood utilize specialty pet-care products and state-of-the-art equipment such as waist-high tubs with gentle restraints, vet-grade disinfectants, and temperature-controlled water for grooming and bathing services. Those who wish to give their nonhuman best friend a quick bath outside the delicate confines of their Faberge-egg-stocked home can opt for the self-service pet wash (a $12 value), which leaves the cleanup to Planet Doggiewood's merry band of dog and cat whisperers. Precise handheld sprayers as well as aprons and sleeve protectors help owners stay dry, and tearless shampoos and conditioners moisten pet pelts without discomfort or awkwardly emotional moments. DIY villus revamping can be executed with professional grooming equipment such as a grooming table, pet-specific brushes and combs, and a high-velocity dryer.

As part of the University of Alabama, it makes sense that UAB Campus Recreation's nutritionist doesn't just dole out commands—she takes time to teach her clients, just like a good professor or wizard's mentor. In fact, Alex Cone balks at being thought of as the "food police" since nothing could be further from the truth. She works right alongside clients to create healthy, practical nutrition plans that aim to expand, rather than restrict, their current diet. She and the center's massage therapists also hold classes about nutrition and fitness.
