The canine caretakers at Lucky Dog Daycare & Resort of South Tampa act as dog-sitting concierges during a pup's private or social boarding. During private stays, shy, aggressive, or hypoallergenic pets pair with a kennel counselor for individual playtime, four to six walks a day, and free use of the outdoor romping grounds. Pets can carouse with packs of friendly canines during a social stay, frolicking with like-sized pals in the grassy play area, relaxing in the expansive Astroturf sunning spots, or swan-diving into the heat-beating water park complete with pools and mist sprayers. The air-conditioned interior offers a weather-friendly alternative to the outdoors, with a team of dog enthusiasts constantly supervising the pet playtime. Owners can virtually check-in with best friends over the live feed that streams across the Internet from 16 cameras on constant alert. Lucky Dog’s boarding aficionados hire sheep barbershop quartets to softly bleat lullabies, ensuring all pups snooze comfortably, either in a single room for the private stay or in a softly snoring dog pile.

Andres Tobar performed his first haircut at the age of 13. The Los Angeles native spent long summer days and weekends at the salon where his mother, Dulmary Sabater, worked. After training at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, he earned a specialty in color, displayed his dos in shows around the world, became a Platform Artist at the Los Angeles International ICE Show, and sculpted the hair of supermodel Niki Taylor. At L.A. Gallery Hair & Make-Up Studio, Andres joins a team of Los Angeles–trained stylists and makeup artists. To ensure each client has access to the latest fashions and beauty techniques, the styling pros update their know-how from sources such as Bumble and bumble University, Vidal Sassoon Academy, L’Oréal Professionnel, and Motives Cosmetics. The stylists even help to push the industry forward by producing their own photo shoots, fashion shows, and training courses. Amid a rotating display of art crafted by local artisans, clients surrender their hair and faces to stylists. Beautifiers update hues with ombre color shading and INOA ammonia-free color or leave dos with a striking new look after a custom cut. The resident makeup artist, Claudia Tobar, also puts her practiced hands to work, helping clients to highlight their natural beauty until they're as tempting as Cleopatra driving an ice-cream truck.
