Wagging Tails' experienced canine caretakers shower pooches with personalized attention and supervised playtime in a 4,500-square-foot paw paradise. The first visit begins with a tour and introduction to familiarize furry friends with the sights, sounds, and lingering Lassie smells of their new surroundings. Afterward, animals with up-to-date vaccinations and docile dispositions can play for up to 12 hours a day under the watch of attentive puppy sitters and observant webcams. Hounds can make friends, play, and socialize in this safe, loving environment, and take periodic naps if requested by their parent or guardian. During each visit, chaperones cosset each collared guest with custom quality time, which can include belly rubs, ear scratches, and moral support during never-ending games of Capture the Tail.
With 3,000 square feet of indoor, paw-friendly play space, your poochosaurus will be able to run in circles and bark at the invisible aliens free of guilt or any sense of propriety (daycare starts at $25 a day). Dogs are segregated by size, so two-pound pups won't be able to pick on the bigger dogs. When night falls, fidos enjoy blissful dreams of fat, slow rabbits while snuggling into plush blankets and the camaraderie of the pack (boarding costs $40 per night). Dogs never spend the night or day in a caged or enclosed space, sleeping in the same open area in which they play. Let the experts give your pup a bath ($20–$45 depending on size and hair length), and cross the Rubicon into pet obsession by springing for paw polish ($7). Though the hotel is manned 24/7 by chronic belly rubbers, you can always check in on your four-legged life partner via webcam.
