Different from the average pet-boarding facility, Paradise 4 Paws has a bone-shaped pool surrounded by more than 20,000 square feet of indoor play area, plush accommodations, and comfy boarding suites. Staff members roam the facility 24/7, playing with animals during the day, tucking them in at night, and performing à la carte services such as grooming, obedience training, health checkups, and canine massage therapy. Paradise 4 Paws has its own training academy, and its pet-care professionals have received pet-first-aid certification from the American Red Cross.
The pet-minded staff cares about pet owners, as well, granting access to the play area’s real-time webcams and offering airport parking and transportation.
AnimalSense began in 1999 with a set mission to help dog owners live peacefully with their dogs, by using training methods backed by the steady hand of science. Classes only ever teach dog-friendly methods of positive reinforcement, a pleasant, pain-free experience for dog and owner alike. Class sizes are limited to allow for one-on-one instruction. The variety of classes available makes enrollment in the program sensible for beginners and previously trained dogs alike. Classes include options for dogs of mostly all temperaments, from a session for shy dogs, to Intro to Agility for fledgling performance hounds. This Groupon is not valid for special aggression classes such as Doggone Issues.
Modern Way Cleaners and Addison Cleaners’ compassionate staff participates in regular green-cleaning by recycling hangers, wielding fabric tote bags, and cleansing apparel with a hybrid of high-efficiency wet-cleaning and biodegradable solvents that eschew caustic chemicals and respect fragile textiles. Cleaners bust the stains from a range of wardrobe members, freeing pants ($4.50) from the scourge of spilled soup and preparing wool coats ($13.95) for the rest of winter’s rage. Each service endures Modern Way’s four-point inspection, where an astute employee quadruple-scrutinizes pieces for absent buttons, undesirable blemishes, and half-finished embroidery of favored constitutional amendments.
