Pets are more than just animals, they’re members of the family. Along with that belief comes a certain attitude that the pet lovers at Shaggy Chic love to indulge. Kelly Petersen, the founder of Shaggy Chic, takes great pride in pampering her pets, though it has sometimes brought her judgment and scrutiny. But take a look around her salon, and it doesn’t appear that judgmental eyes have affected Kelly one bit. She and her staff lovingly primp pups and other pets with a signature line of paraben-free shampoos, conditioners, detanglers, and fur fresheners, all of which are made in the United States from natural ingredients. In the salon, they groom pets with services that include baths, fur blowouts, nail trims, and ear cleaning. They can also spruce up furry friends with additional services such as teeth brushing, blueberry facials, and pawdicures that include paw-pad massages and nail polish.

Dr. John Ensign's love of animals began at age eight with his best friend Fred, a dog that he bought with his brother for $10. Though a lot has changed since the days of Fred, John's passion for pets hasn't. After veterinary school, the John spent 10 years as Nevada’s representative in the U.S. Senate where he was considered one of the Humane Society’s biggest allies. More recently, he's opened Boca Park Animal Hospital, a 9,000-square-foot medical, grooming, and boarding facility that offers furry patients a loving staff of nurses and the latest technology in veterinary care. The building was renovated from the ground up to include noise-reduction insulation, luxury pet boarding suites, and a 1,600 square foot exercise area with a realistic mailman punching bag. Specialty laser therapy is also available to address wound healing, ear infections, liver disease, infections, and even behavior problems.

The smile on a once-forlorn animal's face when it's united with new owners can't be matched, as the staff of The Animal Foundation knows well. What was once a tiny spay and neuter clinic when it opened in 1978 has grown into an 8-acre campus that shelters and cares for animals without a home. After a careful vetting process, families seeking four-legged companionship can find it here, relieving Dad from his duties of crawling around the house all day. The clinic still offers low-cost spay and neutering services, as well as vaccinations to prevent rabies and other diseases.

A live webcam keeps an eye on the canine antics at Hot Diggity Dog Daycare, allowing owners to remotely check up on pets via a video stream broadcast to their computer or iPhone. They won't be the only ones watching, though; trained caregivers tend to dogs 24 hours a day, taking each dog out for one-on-one playtime as well as multiple bathroom breaks throughout the night. The 5,000-square-foot facility dedicates three separate play areas to large, medium, and small dogs where they can socialize with other pouches, perhaps even meeting one with similar political views. For a pampering pause, the caregivers groom dogs with shampoo, toothbrushes, and nail clippers, and allow owners to use the supplies to groom their own pets. While away, owners can rest easy knowing that a behavioral evaluation and vaccine requirement ensures friendly and healthy company.

The mural in the play space at A Puppy Paradise imagines what an idyllic dog haven might look like. Sunflowers are in bloom, frisbees are in flight, and puppies play in the fountain without getting yelled at by the park inspector. Though the daycare's indoor areas are less grassy, they are rife with toys, soft beds, and the chance for canine guests to socialize. In three play spaces, pet-loving staff pair dogs with equally-sized playmates before doling out treats and making sure everyone gets along. In the evenings, overnight boarders snuggle up with cozy blankets, while owners sleep soundly in the knowledge that someone is keeping an eye on their pups.
