Tucked away on the owner's 25-acre farm just outside Louisville, Utopia Animal Care welcomes dogs of all breeds and sizes to a loving home away from home. During daycare stays or slumber parties, pups can be found romping about the 2-acre, fully fenced outdoor play yard or snuggled inside the cage-free facility, where each canine suite is outfitted with organic snacks, fresh water, and cable TV. To restore that new-dog smell, Utopia's licensed groomer manages manes of all textures and lengths with breed-specific cuts and brush outs and helps pups to unwind from long hours dreaming of chasing squirrels with canine massage.
Happy Hounds' firm no-leash policy lets dogs bound around play spaces unfettered, taking full advantage of the fully insured company's 3,000-square-foot facility. Dogs get exercise outdoors and indoors, climbing over and through agility obstacles as attentive staff members look on. Much like elementary-school students or new employees, dogs are separated into playgroups according to temperament, play style, and knowledge of multiplication tables. These like-minded dogs also bunk down together in slumber-party-style sleeping areas, where they snooze on fleece bedding, drift off to classical music, or stay up late playing truth or dare, their safety ensured by around-the-clock staff.
The experienced, kind staff at The Pet School and Hotel comfort animal guests with private rooms, deft grooming, and training built around positive reinforcement. Each dog that vacations at the Pet Hotel lounges in 36 square feet of climate-controlled space and heads outside five to six times daily to play and practice poses for upcoming calendars. Cats frolic together in a spacious rec room filled with toys, hiding holes, and black holes to absorb their insatiable curiosity while birds nest at the private residence of the owner, who has more than 20 years of experience caring for exotic avians. Dedicated to canines and felines, the Pet Salon's groomers condition coats and skin with oatmeal, protein, and flea baths and specialize in the FURminator technique that clears out matted undercoats to reduce shedding.
For more than 30 years, Walnut Way Farm has taught saddle-seat horseback-riding lessons for riders of all experience levels, with an emphasis on human and horse safety. For horse pilots' first equine engagements, an experienced instructor will cover safety basics, steering, control, rider posture, and rearing up in front of sunsets. Saddle-seat riding, a subsection of English style, shows off the horse’s confident high trot and creates a solid riding foundation to which riders may add other styles. Since horses play cribbage on Sundays, lessons run Monday–Saturday.
