Tiny nails skitter across dark hardwood floors as pets enter Jet Pet Resort. The high ceilings glitter with chandeliers in this pet resort, where every detail is designed to subvert human owners’ Subverting expectations of its industrial converted warehouse setting. The staff here hosts its four-legged charges in luxe suites of varying sizes, reminiscent of traditional hotels, save for the dog-sized, sheepskin-covered beds. Some of the rooms are large enough for a private television and in-room webcam to allow pet parents to keep an eye on their pup while vacationing.
The doggy suites feature large picture windows that overlook the indoor play yard, made to resemble a small-town park, complete with man-made trees and a grass-colored floor. Both day care and overnight guests can cavort in this indoor playground. Pups can also venture outdoors,, where they can weave around shrubbery and clamber up platforms. Staff is on-hand day and night to toss balls into the air or determine whether dogs actually do dream about running all night long.
Every aspect of a dog’s stay is carefully curated to ensure comfort while pups are away from home. The kitchen staff crafts custom meals for pups. The resort’s spa treatments let pups chase away the day’s stress with a massage or soothing bath. The staff can also accommodate feline companions, housing them in their own separate wing.
It's a fairly common image from the Middle Ages and from fairy tales: an armoured knight on horseback, riding triumphantly into battle wielding a sword. Today, of course, such a sight would have shocked witnesses almost immediately—unless they're at Academie Duello. A centre for European swordplay and Western martial arts, Academie Duello has revived centuries-old scenes similar to the one above. It teaches students ancient battle techniques, but does not re-enact epic duels or the well-documented silly-string wars that ensued when swords broke.
The 5,000-square-foot facility extracts skills and weapon information from authentic combat manuals and primary-source texts. Its instructors turn that knowledge into an in-depth curriculum, which today provides both adult and children's programs. Most of those programs also help students stay fit, as they replace weights and treadmills with longswords, shields, and rapiers. To immerse themselves further into knighthood, students can check out Academie Duello's museum, which preserves an ever-growing collection of weapons of war, armour, and fight books.
