The groomers at Grateful Dog Grooming like to say that they treat every fur-covered client like a member of the family—which isn’t surprising given they have team members such as Sally, a spunky Boston terrier, making regular appearances and greeting visitors with wide grins. Within the shop’s warm orange walls, groomers give dogs and cats an all-over styling with services such as bathing, teeth brushing, nail filing, and hot-oil treatments. Staffers can even give pets a bit of style by adding a decorative scarf or a gold-rimmed monocle before owners return to retrieve their four-legged pals.
Silke Schröder's canine haven hosts dog-training classes, grooming sessions, doggie daycare, and overnight guests in spacious luxury suites. Among Silke's many dog-whispering accomplishments, the German-born-and-raised dog trainer placed second at the 2001 German Northern States Dog Sporting Championship, qualified for the 2005 USDAA Agility World Championships, and has racked up years of professional experience training pups of all ages and breeds in basic obedience and agility using an upbeat and positive approach. Her diverse roster of classes ranges from basic puppy obedience to Canine Good Citizen courses, in which dogs learn to behave in public, around other dogs, and before Queen Elizabeth's corgi ambassadors.
Shaded by thick, moss-strewn trees, Pet Camp's outdoor play area provides plenty of room for carefree romps and organized activities with the pack for daycare visitors, and boarders can recover from games of Red Rover inside the 2,700-square-foot, climate-controlled kennel. Four-footed guests can stage a sweet-smelling reunion with their owners after a Hydrosuge bath, brush, or trim at the grooming center
At Sun Kiva Kennel, visiting pets bound across 11 acres of sunny grounds and open-play spaces. The Kuttler family owns and operates the kennel, ensuring visiting cats, dogs, and birds are properly cared. A veteran of pampering pets, Louise Kuttler manages the office and ensures harmonious relations between visiting pups and her own brood of five dogs, including Philly, the kennel's designated greeter, and Kasey, a Rottweiler and retired show dog. Along with 75 boarding spaces, the heated and air-conditioned kennel boasts six extra-large play areas, where new acquaintances greet each other with polite sniffs and old friends seek to settle poker debts.
The scene is a familiar one: hotel guests lounge beside the outdoor pool as staff members filter around, offering refreshments or collecting clients for a spa treatment. However, at Pet Paradise, the pool is bone shaped and all the guests are dogs. This luxurious scene is one cat and dog owners can find at this boarding and daycare facility that has been owner Fred Goldsmith's pride and joy for a decade. The animal lover was inspired to start his own pet hotel when he simply couldn’t find a place he was comfortable leaving his bichon frise when he went on vacation.
Fred made Pet Paradise to his exact specifications, and the pet hotel's amenities reflect the loving care he lavishes on his own beloved pup. Dogs and cats can luxuriate in spa-quality grooming treatments or burn off some energy during group playtime. In the evening, pets can settle into plush bedding and feel safe knowing that the dedicated live-in staff resides just a bark away. Nocturnal kitties spend the night exploring their own private six-level cat condos while gentle spa music fills the air to keep them entertained. In case of any emergencies, Pet Paradise keeps veterinarians on-call, and in the event of a snack emergency, each staff member is a certified bacon cook.
