When The Comfy K9’s staff of animal behaviorists planned the layout for their luxury dog-boarding lodge, they tried to put themselves in the shoes of their four-legged friends. They thought it might be nice to frolic around a 3,000-square-foot indoor park during six-hour daycare sessions, so they built one and lined it with artificial grass. They also thought it might be nice to play with like-minded pups, so they made sure that it would be easy to separate their guests by size, temperament, and age. This level of careful planning is most evident in the overnight boarding lodge, where dogs bunk down on elevated beds in suit rooms. Each room is separated from the others by a wall of opaque glass blocks, which allow in plenty of light yet spare dogs judgmental looks when they change into pajamas with cats printed on them.
Speaking of cats, they also enjoy comfortable quarters—albeit in a separate area of the building. Owners can schedule appointments for grooming and therapeutic massage during their pets’ visits, or stay on for training sessions conducted by experienced instructors.

Nervous pets are eased into exams at the attentive hands of the Indian Tree Animal Hospital staff.

The four veterinarians that helm VetweRx share more than the office's high-tech equipment: they genuinely love the animals. The ultramodern equipment does come in handy, though, as the veterinarians deliver treatments to domestic and exotic pets. Together, they provide vaccinations, dental cleanings, x-rays, CT scans, spaying and neutering, and surgeries to quell joint pain and bone problems.
At Knee Deep in Dawgs, canine companions get an antidote to the boredom and loneliness that sets in when owners are away. During the day, staffers let dogs roam through large indoor spaces filled with toys and at night, they curl up in cozy dog beds. To keep them looking their best, the facility's groomers bestow new, clean 'dos upon request.
Dogs can also learn proper etiquette—as well as a few new tricks—with help from the staff trainer. A professional with more than 30 years on the job, the former deputy sheriff and K-9 trainer for the Denver Police Department started his career by training military dogs. Not to leave any service unoffered, the well-rounded Knee Deep group also includes a photographer who creates memorable portraits of canines that can be framed or taken on a walk around the block.
