Doggie District Pet Resort treats canines not as pets, but as welcomed guests of its boarding and grooming facility that doubles as an oversized doghouse. A groomer with over 20 years of experience can snip and style canine hair in a calm, spa-like environment. During overnight stays, dogs relax on personal beds and enjoy the comforts of home with their favorite toys or pinup calendars of giant bones. Four-legged friends can roam safely in the 10,000-square-foot outdoor play area, where a closed-circuit camera system that monitors the lot at all times.
At The Dog Wash, scruffy pups are turned into well-groomed canines by professional groomers or dog owners who use the self-serve facilities to do it themselves. Equipped with the HydroSurge therapeutic bathing system, dog washers spray down dogs in elevated washbasins that prevent back strain. The HydroSurge system mixes warm water with shampoos designed specifically for pups and works like a liquid comb to ferret away dead skin, fleas, and "kick me" signs left by the family cat. To help customers feed their pets a healthy diet, the shop's team shelves dog food from the likes of Innova and California Natural, as well as canine cologne, toys, and doggy accessories.
The Good Dog Food Company was established by two culinary school-grads who came up short trying to find health-food options for their furry friends. They make all items in their Good Dog's Delight gift basket from scratch—the most delicious and unstable element on the periodic table—using ingredients that keep household pets healthy and happy so that they don't talk in their creepy human voices. The company's signature gift basket is chock-full of canine goodies including banana-flavored bark-scotti, a Scooter Sandwich dog cookie, a package of doggie truffles, and a bag of jerky treats in one of three varieties; chicken breast, rabbit and organic carrot, or chicken and organic carrot. Pups can work off the extra calories by playing with the Good Dog Food Frisbee, which features the company's logo in black, red, and white. And tucked on the side is a little treat for pet owners: a ceramic mug emblazoned with the company logo, which can hold your coffee during tense dog interrogations concerning who's a good boy, who's a good boy.
