Pet Boarding in Prairie Village

A lifelong dog lover and doting owner of two labradoodles, Dan Thompson knew he didn’t want cages at his doggy daycare; he wanted his charges to play together before heading home happy and calm. So, instead of filling Dog Pawz playNstay with bars and locks, Thompson designed outdoor and indoor play areas where pooches exchange opinions on mailman fashions as they chow on natural food. Canines can spend the night, and owners of either boarding or visiting pets can visit the Dog Pawz playNstay website to log in and watch their pups on a live camera feed. The pet haven also grooms coats and trims toenails, outfits furry companions with leashes and toys, and can ferry them to and from home within a 3-mile radius, sparing pooches the need to figure out how much they should tip cab drivers.

For more than 40 years, the experienced caretakers at Cherokee Animal Clinic have kept furry friends safe and spry with veterinary services, dental care, boarding, and grooming in a well-equipped wellness center. The team of three vets can choose from five exam rooms in which to vaccinate and microchip pooches, or take to the surgical suite approved by the American Animal Hospital Association to mend skeletal and cardiac flaws detected on x-rays. The pet lovers lavish extra doting on senior citizens of the animal kingdom, crafting plans to rework unhealthy diets with nutrition counseling. The facility sequesters cats and dogs in separate, temperature-controlled boarding quarters where they enjoy frequent attention from kennel staffers and vets. During grooming sessions, on-staff stylists primp coats, adhering to breed trends, owner preferences, and the animal's fantasy of being a squirrel.

The veterinarians and support staff at Falcon Valley Animal Hospital tend to a revolving cast of cats and dogs that comes through the doors. They love animals—all of them are pet owners except for Soot the cat, who is not responsible enough to own other cats.

Inside the hospital, patients will find an onsite pharmacy, boarding facilities, training classes, and, naturally, veterinary services. Veteran puppy trainer Dennis Bastian teaches rebellious pups to adhere to their best friends’ commands. Comprehensive exams for new puppies and kittens get pets up-to-date on vaccinations and include heartworm, flea, and tick prevention as well as free food samples. Pet microchipping—a procedure in which a microchip the size of a grain of rice is placed under a pet’s skin—is also available to help locate pets in the event that they get lost or want to cheat in a game of hide-and-seek.

Good Pup founder and owner Patty Homer, who touts 20 years' experience in dog training, gets tails wagging with personalized, private lessons for all breeds of canines. Pooches learn to master commands such as sit, down, come, heel, yodel, and stay, and owners learn techniques that ensure results can be re-created outside the vacuum of Good Pup's training facility. Each of the obedience-training sessions can be scheduled at the owner's convenience, providing dogs ample time between sessions to play tug of war, go for w-a-l-k-s, and upload home videos of their owners chasing squirrels in their sleep.

Every year more than 6,500 animals enter Wayside Waifs, incapable of surviving on their own. They're injured or sick, mothers with babies, or orphans too young to feed themselves. But the shelter takes them all in. It even outsources—entrusting the youngest and most vulnerable to foster families who care for them and dote on them until they're old enough and socially ready to seek adoption.

At that point, the animals move back to the shelter. There they enjoy all the privileges of an adopted pet: dogs go on lengthy walks around a 50-acre campus, hear soothing spa music indoors, and play in a 5,000-square-foot fenced-in agility park; while cats lounge on towers in the sun room, sleep on plush beds in cage-free kennels, and play iPad games with a volunteer. As a result of this loving treatment, the animals are happy and healthy once it's time to move in with new families.

With a degree in fashion and a desire to carry on the name of her recently-deceased shih tzu, Tashi Tai, Christine Gregory started creating a line of fluffy dog collars and selling them under the name of her beloved pet. Over the years, with the help of her mother and a new shih tzu named Myko, Christine expanded her wholesale business into a full-fledged pet boutique and spa. It's here that she not only stocks the shelves with gourmet treats and designer apparel, but also pampers pups with spa treatments such as massage therapy, facials, and a full menu of grooming services. Dogs can even take part in half- or full-day day-play sessions, where they safely socialize and pontificate in groups separated by size and temperament. While her Queen of Paws Boutique & Spa may cater to high-class pets, Christine's heart goes out to canines of all walks of life. She takes care to donate apparel, food, and funds to shelters and rescues that help find homes for abandoned dogs.
