Animal Care Unlimited's grooming guru, Lynda, scrubs, snips, and styles canine hides with diligence and delicacy. Four-legged patrons are greeted with a gentle shampoo bath to neutralize the unsavory smells of late-night poker games, followed by a blow-dry and tress trim—including sanitary clip and paw-pad snip. The beast beautician then disinfects dog derrieres, purges and plucks cruddy ear canals, prunes pointy paws, and highlights cheekbones with an understated rouge. Fees vary depending on size and breed, but scrub downs start at $40 for wallet-sized woofers, with the average grooming around $48. Any remaining Groupon dollars can go toward a future pooch pamper. Pups must be prepped with rabies, distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations before their primp.

Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa founder Ray Schneider understands why his clients would want to pamper their pups with massage and reiki sessions or warm-water swims. As he told Dan Monk of the Business Courier, "It’s a relationship that’s very hard to explain. When you have a dog, you can understand it.” The Blue Ash resident and entrepreneur created the sprawling, 25,000-square-foot pet hotel—and its second location in Boston—because he realizes the lengths to which people will go to care for their furry friends.

Swathed in upscale atmosphere, the spa is outfitted with all the comforts of home and more; after touring the facilities, Jeff Elkus of David's Voice said, "I wish the last resort I visited had half the amenities of Red Dog." Dogs can stay in private, themed boarding suites with flat-screen TVs and owner-monitored webcams. They exercise and socialize in climate- and airflow-controlled play areas, romp in a three-acre dog park, and don buoyancy vests to soothe achy joints in the heated aquatic center. The hotel also offers multilevel lodging for cats, as well as canine grooming and training services.

Schneider hired and trained a staff for around-the-clock supervision and care. Dogs who are aging, have health issues, or secretly write reviews for Frommer's get special attention in a room with a fireplace and stretch lounges.

Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.

Owned and operated by three brothers, Horton's Hoagies doles out toasty subs and classic sandwiches for lunch and dinner every day of the week. Prime-rib creations earn first billing on the menu, filling the real estate between fresh bread with rare, well-done, or spicy cuts of meat. Customers highly recommend the prime-rib cheesesteak. Soups, such as broccoli cheese, and chili round out specialty sandwiches alongside salads, chips, and cookies. Horton's also assembles catering trays, which pack enough handheld food to feed large parties or fuel the food-fight portion of jury deliberations.

In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
