The pet-loving technicians at Invisible Fence of New Orleans specialize in keeping man's best and furriest friends corralled, and happily so. Whether surrounding homes with a subterraneous containment system or setting up an indoor PetFree area, the techs design pet zones that match each owner's interests, then conduct training sessions to help dogs, cats, and dogs disguised as cats overcome their wanderlust. Invisible Fence's territory encroaches on the domains of bark control and behavioral training as well, and its efforts to improve the lifestyle of animals leads it straight into the world of pet doors, toys, heated wellness beds, and self-cleaning litter boxes.
New Orleans Dog Nanny offers attentive, personalized service to meet your dog's needs and belly-rub wants. Days are structured around playtime in indoor and outdoor rumpus areas lined with paw-friendly flooring and littered with tons of toys. In addition to around-the-clock supervision, the Dog Nanny has a free webcam feed so you can watch your critter any time of day. The Dog Nanny recently extended its daycare hours (6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.), and you can drop your dog off for up to 11 hours of daycare at a time. If you board your dog, he'll snuggle up in a roomful of Kuranda beds and other dogs while a staff member stays on-site as an honorary member of the pack. Your dog will feast each night and day according to your instructions with the food you supply.
