On Pet Ville Pet Hotel's acre of playground, dogs lope and bound through two synthetic-turf yards and an air-conditioned activity center with slides and tunnels. A pool shaped like a dog bone sprays canines with jets of water during hot days, proving more useful than a dog bone shaped like a swimming pool. Pet-care technicians certified by the American Boarding Kennels Association make fast friends with the animals during private and group play sessions. Trained in pet nutrition and hygiene, the technicians carefully monitor daily eliminations and general health. At the pet hotel's grooming center, canine and feline aestheticians administer jacuzzi baths, shedding remedies, and pedicures.
The Laundered Mutt & Training Center turns rambunctious pooches into well-behaved canines through training sessions that range from basic puppy obedience to advanced service and therapy dog training. Whether she's teaching puppy socialization, practicing new tricks with older dogs, or leading AKC Canine Good Citizen testing, trainer Cat Z. infuses sessions with positive behavior methods honed over a decade-plus career. Pups can study up on their new skills during private or group lessons, or engaging in more intensive training during the center's three-week board and train program.
In addition to expert training sessions, pooches can also upgrade their looks in the center's grooming area. There, dog owners lovingly suds up their pups at back-friendly, waist-high washing stations, or turn them over to groomers for a full service wash that includes nail clipping, blueberry facial wash, and a spritz of cologne. In addition to basic fur maintenance, groomers are also trained to deliver custom, breed-specific cuts.

Most spas don’t admit patrons who bark, growl, and prefer eating dinner on the floor. But at The Zuri Pet Spa, they only allow this breed of customer. Owner and seasoned groomer Jenn Harris delights in setting her sometimes-anxious canine clients at ease through grooming and spa services performed in private suites filled with soft music. From stylish, breed-specific haircuts to cleansing blueberry facials and pooch massages, she and an experienced bather soothe and beautify dogs worn out after weeks of rough-and-tumble play. They even decorate pups’ necks with a line of collars encrusted with Swarovski crystals, which make pets easier to identify or hide inside a chandelier shop.

In the beauty parlor, both short- and long-haired breeds receive baths, nail trimming, and teeth cleaning, while long-haired pooches might also enjoy a haircut to keep fur from growing over their eyes or overshadowing their mustaches.
