Outfitted with spas and treadmills, Pooch Hotels are nearly the same as human accommodations, with one key difference: your dog might get a tummy-rub with their turndown service. These venues were all designed by dog-lovers whose main priority was canine comfort, regardless of the length of each guest's stay.
Dogs on daycare visits, for example, are sorted by size and temperament before entering one of multiple play areas. Monitored by human "Pack Leaders," they socialize amidst toys, treats, and wading pools at select locations, or run outside if the weather and facilities permit. Those who have booked a room for the night can relax in a private suite, outfitted with a glass door rather than bars. These range from standard to presidential and even palace suites—rooms outfitted with luxury bedding and flat-screen televisions tuned to dog-friendly programming. Customers might also schedule a spa appointment for their pooch, choosing from services such as baths, "pawdicures," and even facials.
The hotels pursue peace of mind for owners as actively as they pamper their dogs. Certain locations have installed web cameras in the play areas and suites, enabling people to check in on their pets and guilt them about the time they napped instead of writing a postcard. Staff remain on-hand at all times to welcome newcomers and care for already-snoozing pups.

Founded in 2007 by certified master dog trainer Jaime Van Wye, Zoom Room fosters relationships between dogs and their owners through obedience and agility classes. Obstacles such as hurdles, hoops, and ramps populate the interactive indoor facility, helping energetic pups burn off steam, gain focus, and get in shape for roles summer stock productions of Homeward Bound. In addition to basic obedience courses, specialty classes for shy or overly rambunctious dogs build confidence through positive reinforcement and a controlled class environment. Dogs seeking less structured outings often romp through half-hour blocks of private gym time, working through the agility course at their own pace.
The passionate staff at K9s Only doggie-boarding house keeps dogs of all temperaments safe, social, and pampered during their families' getaways. Rovers snooze soundly in a soft pile of blankets atop cozy beds within the private 8'x6' rooms, which grant pups room to roam and hoard at least 1,000 chew toys. Dogs keen on socializing venture out into the center’s indoor and outdoor dog parks, romping around with other friendly, fully vaccinated pups. Introverted Lassies can caper about on private walks or sniff out adventure in the private dog park before making their way back into their climate-controlled abodes to quietly read the latest issue of Dog Fancy. The enthusiastic staff keeps each dog on their normal feeding schedule, heaping bowls with Wellness dog chow or owner-provided cuisine twice a day, and will dispense any necessary medications.
