Dogs trot out of Spot's Spot and Spa stylishly well-groomed, well-rested, or well-fed, depending on their activities in the canine wellness haven. Trained groomers infuse coats with natural shampoos and conditioners before treating dogs to a facial scrub, a nail trim, and a breed-standard or custom cut, each precisely hand-scissored. Overnight stays keep canines in good company with cage-free accommodations, 24-hour supervision, and personal attention from playtime to medicine delivery. In the retail sections, owners peruse a vast array of dog food and treats, including freshly butchered meat (available only at Spot’s 2nd Spot) along with high-quality cat food from Science Diet and Acana. A full stock of doggy wellness aids ranges from vitamins and salves to padded e-collars that prevent dogs from noticing when their chums poke fun at their fashion choices.

With indoor and outdoor activity spaces, dog-loving attendants on staff 24 hours a day, and lots of friends to play with, dogs may not want to leave Woof World once they arrive. Whether they're there for daycare or all-night boarding, canines can run through agility courses, clamber up climbing structures, and wrestle with toys in an indoor play area equipped with rubberized flooring to protect paws. Outside, they wallow in bone-shaped swimming pools and drink straight from the hose in the warm sun. The pampering doesn't stop at bedtime—dogs have their pick of a variety of mattresses and dog beds piled with blankets and pillows, and there isn't a cage to be found. Staff members stay throughout the night, keeping watch to take care of any overnight potty emergencies and prevent toothpaste pranks from fellow boarders. All dogs must meet the facility's prerequisites to stay, including passing a behavior test, up-to-date vaccinations, and other requirements.

Nestled in the heart of a scenic 45-acre expanse, Out of Reach Farm hosts one indoor and one outdoor ring, both equipped with challenging jumping courses. A covered arena juts out from the indoor ring, hosting private and small group lessons. While one of three instructors relays equestrian basics or advanced techniques to pupils aged 5 and older, parents and other spectators keep cozier than mitten-clad sheep in a heated viewing area. As the seasons evolve from chilly to sun-drenched, so do the farm's offerings, which include half-day summer camps suited to riders aged 5–15. For a more intimate peek into farm life, patrons can schedule two-hour birthday parties, with an hour devoted to pony rides for guests.
