Ears tucked back, tail in a straight line, and paws moving so fast that he looks like he's flying. Rushing to greet one of the kennel employees with his tongue hanging out, the dog flops onto the grass, showing off his belly. Happily exhausted pups are a familiar sight at Labby Lane Kennel, where play is a No. 1 priority. Its largest outdoor play park spans a full acre, providing a grassy expanse wide enough for pups?whether they're pugs or greyhounds?to get up to full speed without stealing the family car. The boarding and daycare facility stretches across the 5-acre property that proprietors Jeff and Crystal call home, and it features four additional play yards to help burn off your pet's extra energy. Overnight, dogs bunk in climate-controlled suites that have both indoor and outdoor space and are large enough to share with furry friends or family members. Pet owners can also board feline guests in their own exclusive area.
