Freshly back from vacation, a customer walks expectantly into the room. A golden retriever bounds clumsily up, its tongue flapping a rosy greeting and mouth stretched far back into a smile. When the dog?s owner takes up the leash, thanks the staff for caring for her energetic pup, and turns to leave, she feels a tug on the leash. Her dog has planted his feet firmly, trying to back into a sitting position?clearly, he wants them both to stay put.
According to proprietor Lisa Schettino, this is an everyday occurrence at Camp Canine. After a difficult experience finding pet care for her own dog, Lisa set out to create an environment that would not only keep critters safe, but make them want to stay. Now, each Camp Canine location has a resort-style atmosphere sprawled over 9,000?15,000 square feet.
Stressed four-legged friends wiggle with glee during massages, shedding stress from squeaky toys giving them the silent treatment. Against a bass rumble of purring, punctuated by canine yips, green-tea and chamomile facials drive dirt from wrinkled faces and soften wiry fur. As they wait for their next spa appointment, dogs can roam freely in a fenced-in play lot. After tearing through a maze of tunnels and obstacles, they splash into the pool and emerge to toss their cool, wet fur, bejeweling the air with spray. An air-conditioned indoor play area shelters pets from extreme heat and teenagers listening to vacuums at high volume.
Owners too can rest at ease during their pets? vacation, knowing their animals lounge in private rooms with plush bedding and staff on-site 24 hours a day. They check up on their furry friends via scheduled Skype sessions and various webcams set up throughout the facilities. The Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale locations also pick up and drop off pets that haven?t yet learned how to operate a manual transmission.
Nowadays, people are so busy that they don't have time to plan healthy meals. The Green Box gives its customers an alternative to cruising to the drive-through.

Customers only commit on a week-by-week basis, and the staff will even work with them to design meals based on their fitness goals or the dietary restrictions that come with eating paleo, vegan, or food that rhymes with "Jake."
