If a dog isn't tired, it isn't happy. That's why WagsPark fenced in their three acres of land. Now, during play sessions, canines jump, run, and roll to a state of blissful exhaustion without worrying about wandering off. After trotting through manicured lawns and agility courses, dogs jump into a cool, spring-fed lake with tidy gravel banks. A dancing fountain also sprinkles coats with refreshing droplets. While dogs play, owners can sidle up to the bar area where a big-screen TV displays the antics of well-trained humans.

During daycare hours, dogs roam freely between the temperature-controlled building and the outdoor play areas. Certified staffers always stay nearby to make sure they stay happy and safe. When it's time to go home, owners can give their furry friends the spa treatment or wash them up in a self-service dog bath. WagsPark also features a training academy where pups learn to obey commands and play well with others.

Animal Care Centers

In Animal Care Centers’ climate-controlled boarding facilities, dogs lounge in the lap of luxury—their VIP dog suites are outfitted with TVs and overlook a koi pond complete with a waterfall. However, perhaps the most important amenity is a team of veterinarians, on call around the clock. And the vets are some of the best in town; the practice has been named "Best Vet in Cincinnati" for four consecutive years by City Beat Magazine. For the past 30 years, the vets have administered vaccinations, screened for heartworm and leukemia, and performed pet dentistry, rather than just teaching pets to chew with wind-up chattering teeth.

Dogs rarely get lonesome at Dogtown Cincinnati. That's because they'll be spending too much time playing with the other dogs and the staff. Whether inside or outside, pups have ample space to run, jump, and play statue, and even overnight, it's like a big slumber party, where everyone bunks down together and they're under the watchful eye of the faithful human crew. Owners can also schedule grooming appointments or training sessions, while cats stay for the day or overnight in their own private area.

Dogs can run their fastest during Buddy Boarding's jogging sessions, untethered by a lagging human or a tightening leash. That's because the company's specialists ride roller skates or longboards alongside sprinting canines to match their speed and endurance. They work with dogs of all energy levels, tailoring the sessions to include vigorous exercise or playtime.
