Pet Boarding in Downtown Portland

An avid lover of animals, Theresa Shire burst onto the pet-care scene as an adoption center and animal care supervisor for the Arizona Humane Society. Since then, Theresa's passion for raising playful, happy pets and pairing them with compatible owners has flourished at Dogstar—a one-stop shop for pets that has grown to include its own pet rescue and adoption center. After a complimentary assessment of temperament, Theresa and her staff welcome cats and dogs into daycare where positive-reinforcement techniques maintain harmony and an interest in the field of psychology among packs as they exercise and mingle. After daycare, the patient employees ease animals into overnight stays in pristine boarding digs. Pets boarded for five days or more strut into the salon for free grooming, which can include baths, manicures, or quality time with the Furminator. Onsite vet Laura Chang performs checkups and vaccinations while owners browse the boutique’s collection of dog supplies, toys, and foods from Natural Balance. From April to September, clients can spend extra time perusing nearby shops on First Thursdays—fun evenings full of wine, music, and work from local artists, much like a clambake in the Louvre.

After their owners drop them off, dogs rush into the indoor playroom at The Dog House Doggie Daycare & Boarding, where they greet new friends before challenging old pack mates to games of chase. They romp for hours around the 2,000-square-foot play space, which is outfitted with a ramp and separate sections for large, small, less-active, and slinky dogs. A ventilation system specifically designed for pets keeps the air clean and comfortable. It's clear that dog owners designed this canine utopia, which also includes boarding service 365 nights a year, as well as a grooming zone with self-service or professional washes, tooth brushes, and nail trims. Many on staff are certified in Red Cross first aid and CPR for dogs.

Workers from Hot Diggity! step out of houses with pups tugging politely at the leash and lolling their tongues in the sunshine. The crew members, who are all licensed, bonded, and insured, give owners a break from taking the dog outside and dealing with all the strange children the dog rescues from farm wells. After consultations allow them to get to know the home and the pet’s routine, staffers can even stop in several times a day or stay overnight to care for their animal charges. They also care for care for critters including cats, gerbils, birds, and reptiles.

Kate Dessommes has traveled the world in search of techniques to further her knowledge of yoga. She began with a five-year apprenticeship under Luciana Proaño in Portland before packing her bags for New Zealand to study with instructor and author Donna Farhi and John Friend, founder of Anusara yoga.

At Portland Yoga Studio, Kate and her team of instructors fold those globe-gathered techniques into classes that incorporate Ayurveda, asanas, meditation, and relaxation techniques. They also offer special classes for students who otherwise might not be able to participate, such as those with MS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, or problems balancing. Classes for children and families round out the curriculum, giving parents and their kids a new way to bond that’s more active than watching television and safer than traveling to the future by falling into a coma together.

Club K-9 welcomes well-socialized and evaluated dogs into a clean and spacious environment.
