At Happy Tails Pet Care's kennel-free dog boarding facilities, a caring, professional staff trained in pet first aid and CPR nurtures pooches with exercise, socialization, and large helpings of love. During the day, canine boarders can socialize with other dogs by chasing squirrels, fetching balls, and comparing notes on the area's premium fire hydrants in daycare and during 60- to 90-minute play groups held at local parks. Worn out by a day of energetic exercise, boarders will plop down into soft, fluffy beds, and drift off to dream about bacon-flavored newspapers and the final defeat of their feline arch nemeses.

Like their human counterparts, dogs need time to exercise and socialize. Animal lover Char DeLillio opened Dog Gone Adventures to help pet owners give their pups those enriching experiences. She and her staff take groups of dogs on field trips to dog-friendly parks and beaches, where they play fetch with the staff and cavort with one another, which keeps them from trying to wrestle the houseplants when they get home. Char and her team also take pets on long, individual walks and pet-sit at Dog Gone Adventures, pet sitter's home, or pets' home.

Though dogs might be colorblind, it's likely they will find comfort in the bright and colorful private suites at The Golden Paw. The boarding kennels are each coated in fresh, natural colors that remind canine visitors of healthy lawns, and also feature amenities such as flat-screen TVs, plush bedding, and web cameras so owners can make sure their dogs are happily eating, playing, and flossing their teeth. In addition to providing pets with a little rest and relaxation, the team provides full-service grooming and obedience training, and recently added daycare to its list of services.

Dirty Paws Pet Wash sets up shop on Santo Road, just off the 52 freeway in Tierrasanta. They provide a convenient and efficient self-wash service, equipped with raised tubs, shampooing products and high-powered dryers. These dryers are more powerful than ones typically seen at pet washing studios, which is helpful for dogs with thick fur. Their stucco exterior is inviting, and the facility is clean and easy to use, making it an enjoyable time for both dogs and their owners. The staff is friendly and helpful, sharing cleaning techniques and answering any questions visitors may have about their pooch. For those uninterested in doing the dirty work themselves, full service professional grooming is also available and includes a thorough bath, haircut, nail trim and teeth cleaning.
