Colorful items line the shelves Checkerhills Farm's two stores as pet owners peruse a wide selection of premium and organic dog and cat foods from brands including Eagle Pack, as well as durable toys and enticing treats. A dedicated wild bird section supplies such avian necessities as black oil seeds and feeders, and a horse area is awash in Mister Ed DVDs. On weekends, the store hosts pet adoptions to place needy animals in the homes of loving owners.
Checkerhills Farm’s related business, Pet Lodges, offers private boarding suites and indoor and outdoor play zones for dogs and cats of all sizes. Their daycare center prioritizes the exercise and socialization vital for animal health, while also ensuring that pets get the proper food, medicine, and time for meditative reflection before midday naps.:
Man's best friend isn't just a pet to the staff at this pup parlor, but a member of their client's family. As such, each canine is treated like a four-legged king and rewarded with luxuries ranging from spa appointments to birthday parties. At the pet "spaw", canines can bid adieu to excess fur with a grooming session or release stress from chasing their ever-elusive tails with a white-tea-and-vanilla bath. Though denied a driver's license by state law, furry pals can still get from point A to B with taxi services, which employ a van outfitted with special harnesses to shuttle dogs to their daycare or grooming sessions. The Good Dog Spot also boasts a small boutique stocked with pet food, collars, and treats from local New England manufacturers and trusted national brands.
Pet Lodges hosts cats and dogs for boarding and daycare across five New York and Vermont locations, including the Albany airport. During dog daycare, pooches frolic in an enclosed pebble-lined yard, where affable staffers referee games of chase and fetch. Kitty camps treat cats to three private levels of cozy climbing and napping furniture, and dog suites include raised, cushioned beds and three to four trips to the exercise yard each day. Daycare, kitty camps, and canine luxury suites' built-in webcams allow families to check in on their pets as they socialize, sleep, and perfect their latest tail-braiding-tutorial videos. Pet Lodges' sister store, Checkerhills Farm, stocks organic and holistic dog and cat foods, as well as dog-wash stations and coffee and treats for humans in Glenville.

Terra Americana’s boutique storefront stocks cake and soup mixes and local gift items that are a hit with both local and mail-order customers, all wrapped in the best packaging available utilizing local and natural resources. Each recipe has been developed and tested in New England to enhance the belief that local and natural foods are the key to a healthy being. The shop's cocoa mixes come in containers shaped like bears, and its dip kits yield creations that impress guests. They also craft custom party favors for special events and promotional items for businesses.
The staffers at The Landlocked Dog don't put sugar into dogs’ birthday cakes. To cater to doggy palates, they only use all-natural ingredients such as bananas, honey, carrots, and peanut butter, though they can still spell out the name of the birthday pooch in icing. They also handcraft treats for their store's brand, Sophie's Seabiscuits, shaping delectable morsels into hearts and ladybugs. They concoct seasonal bites for the treat-of-the-month club, which gives pups two half-pound bags of incentive to do their owner’s laundry.
Their dedication to wholesome pet care extends beyond gustatory rewards, however. The boutique stocks fashionable collars, leashes, and grooming products tailored toward specific ailments, including odor and itchiness. Their selection of calming music—composed specifically to put dogs at ease—fosters peaceful car rides, in which pups aren't compulsively changing the radio station. At doggy daycare, small packs can frolic about the cozy and comforting setting while their owners check in via webcam.
