In a facility with 14,000 square feet of romping room, Dog Days' trained staff monitors fun, friendly play among pooches. In addition to grooming and training pups, the staff also oversees daycare quarters comprised of climate-controlled indoor areas and an outdoor playground ringed with secured fencing. Canines undergo testing for temperament and vocabulary before being divvied up into separate groups according to size. Once at play, they share Kong toys, tennis balls, and colorful playground equipment.
After recreation eats up waking hours, boarded pooches snuggle into comfy suites named for European and tropical getaway locales. Each room has a cozy bed that's cleaned regularly. Staffers also wipe down toys, play equipment, and bowls every night with cleaning solution to ensure a safe, healthy environment for their four-legged guests.

This highly sophisticated pet hotel is the vision of president and lifelong dog lover John Sturgess. Having spent more than 20 years as a leading hotel-industry executive, Sturgess knows a thing or two about giving guests the red-carpet treatment. As reported on KARE 11 News, Sturgess "grew the Country Inn & Suites brand by more than 300%," and now offers canines the same service and quality "you would expect at a four- and five-star hotel for humans." His combined passion for people and their four-legged friends earned him the Twin West Chamber Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2012, and also inspired him to work with Make-A-Wish Minnesota to provide a lifetime of complimentary boarding services for the new golden retriever of a boy with epilepsy, according to Minnetonka Patch.
In 1874, English immigrants John and Eliza Ames saddled their percheron draft horses and ventured westward from the Atlantic shore. They settled a plot on the Minnesota countryside and their horses grew strong there, roaming 500 acres of grassy fields. Today, the Ames family continues to care for the breed at Cedar Ridge Arabians, Inc., leading many of their full- and half-arabian horses to class A competitions and earning the Breeder of the Year designation from the Arabian Professional & Amateur Horseman's Association in 2011. In addition to raising horses, the trainers guide riding students with lessons that include tacking, untacking, cooling down, and selecting suitable bedtime stories for each horse.
