No matter how old their dogs get, Carlo and Lyn Medina say they'll always be their puppies. When they were seeking a place to board their two pups, they couldn't find the intimate and attentive care they wanted; thus, they opened Forever Puppy Day Camp and Boarding. Here, they keep the human-to-canine ratio small so that dogs get extra attention as they tumble and run on the indoor playground's soft floor. Overnight guests bunk down in private areas with elevated Kuranda beds. And for their owners' peace of mind, video-chat sessions can be scheduled, so owners can read their pups bedtime stories or end-of-the-day stock-market data.
