Fetch Dog Resort's team of professional trainers and dog groomers accommodates all classes of canines within the 2,500-square-foot resort and grooming spa. Pawed patrons can get refreshed with natural Happy Tails spa products in a deluxe bubble bath and be treated for dry skin, cracked noses, and peanut-butter addictions. Alternatively, dogs can frolic amid up to 30 of their peers in an expansive playroom as certified trainers look on. A separate area for small dogs keeps them protected, and a tasty midday snack keeps boarders from growing hungry. During overnight boarding, dogs lay to rest in spacious suites, crates, or cageless boarding facilities. The staff indulges dogs with frequent bathroom walks and attention.
At House Vets for House Pets, Dr. Kamaria Catalan and her team of veterinary assistants keep tails wagging happily with comprehensive preventive treatments and medical procedures. With the same care used during surgeries and acupuncture sessions, Dr. Catalan and her team coddle their guests in climate-controlled boarding facilities. Furry visitors frequently visit House Vets for House Pets for daycare or extended visits, romping freely around indoor and outdoor play spaces under the watchful eye of staff members who don’t believe in “cage time.” The staff members also groom critters in their in-house salon and make house calls so that animals can be treated in a familiar and comfortable environment without having to miss the live sitcoms performed by neighboring squirrels.
Puptown’s canine coddlers offer boarding and washing services for floppy-eared family members seven days a week. At the East 96th Street location's dog wash, pet owners can de-grime dirty coats and bring back a signature “new dog” scent. Canines enter large, stainless-steel tubs via a dog-friendly ramp or grasshopper-like leap, with owners using convenient spray nozzles to wash away remnants of crashed pizza parties. Puptown supplies dog-washing necessities including shampoo and conditioner, towels, and a jowl-flopping dryer. For an additional $5, guests can upgrade to the deluxe wash and use the facility's de-shedding solutions, ear wash, and toothbrushes and paste.
Pet Supplies Plus’s experts cater to the culinary, recreational, and cleaning needs of their discerning canine clientele. Choose from more than 20 natural dog-food brands, from Holistic Select to Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul. The do-it-yourself dog-wash stations make dog washing easy with spray nozzles and driers, giving home bathtubs a break from canines’ angry feedback letters. A community resource for pet health, the store also partners with local nonprofits to improve the lives of local fur- and feather-covered residents.
Shannon Walters opened Dog'on Salon to give dogs a safe and fun home away from home. To make that possible, she assembled a staff trained in the ways of canines to run her indoor-outdoor facility. This experienced group evaluates pups based on energy levels, age, and size before dividing them up into appropriate play groups. When they aren't tending to pets, the team cares for shelter dogs looking for a place to hang their hats, even on the rare occasion they're not wearing one. In addition to daycare and pet boarding, Shannon's team also grooms dogs, finishing each session with a bow or a bandana.
