Dawg Tired & Cat Naps Too owner, Gray Moore, draws on a lifetime of experience working with domestic, farm, and even wild animals to expertly care for pet owners' beloved canine and feline companions. The two-building facility entertains daytime guests with televisions, music, and furniture reminiscent of their favorite couches from home, whereas a 6,000-square-foot outdoor area abounds with games of fetch or vocal repertoire classes. Luxury suites furnish overnight pups with beds, blankets, and themed décor as can be found in rooms such as the Princess suite, Nautical suite, and the Beach suite. For pets that prefer to stay at home, the trusty staff offers pet-sitting and dog-walking visits and can also zoom Fidos to daycare or vet appointments with a pet taxi. Grooming services are also available for dogs in need of a mane makeover or sprucing up for upcoming power lunches.
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.
Hedged by thick evergreens and home to sprawling grass fields, Shambley Veterinary Clinic cares for creatures great and small. The compassionate staff treats four-legged friends, such as horses and canines, with the same love and care they would show their own animals during services that include checkups and dental work. And with a full surgical facility onsite, the clinic can answer emergency calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The facility is equipped with modern technology, such as digital x-rays and pregnancy ultrasonography, as well as an ambulatory unit to safely bring in gentle beasts for their treatments. Geriatric care for cane-wielding canines, as well as holistic care, such as preventative medicine and dietary counseling, also fall within the clinic's wide field of veterinary expertise.
Premium bedding. Fine china. Beautiful paintings, which only occasionally come to life. Knotty Dogs Boarding has many of the things you'd expect to find at a resort, except for human tourists. Here, dogs of all sizes play inside and outdoors during daycare visits or overnight stays. Two dog lovers run the operation: Amanda Adams, a licensed veterinary technician, and Stanton Adams, an experienced entrepreneur.
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.
Sunny yellow hangers are the calling cards of DoodyCalls' technicians. If you see one on your doorknob, you know they've recently stopped by to scoop up the unpleasant packages your dog has deposited on the lawn. You also know they've done a thorough job, since the techs disinfect their pooper-scooper tools between each home to prevent parasites or diseases from spreading. Beyond their typical residential waste removal, the employees will also change kitty-litter boxes—litter is included—or extract pet waste from entire neighborhoods. Even if their work didn't speak for itself, high-profile publications have, including Forbes, Good Housekeeping, and the Wall Street Journal.
