Preppy Pet is like a five-star spa and resort for pets of all stripes. Dogs, cats, and birds luxuriate under a slew of services, including grooming for pups complete with manicures, conditioning treatments to keep coats sleek, and spa-style baths. When they're not relaxing at the hands of the pet aestheticians, dogs take to romping in the climate-controlled indoor playgrounds—dubbed the Yacht Club, Country Club, and Racquet Club—with similar-sized compadres. For longer stays, pets can hunker down in private suites with their own TVs and snacks, all the while breathing in fresh oxygen pumped in by the air purification systems.
Humans aren't left out of the bargain. For grooming services, Preppy Pets lets guests drop of dogs at the start of the work day and retrieve them after, giving owners a chance to knock out some errands or visit their second pet family. They can even check up on their dogs remotely with the Puppy Pet Cam.
Water ripples in a bright blue kiddie pool flanked by green patio chairs. The warm day is ripe for sun-filled frolicking, and the four-legged clientele at Arizona Pet Resort are only too eager to take part. They splash in the pool, lounge in chairs, and practice the age-old trick of “Was that the doorbell?” Afterward, pups settle in for a nap and frosty treat before being reunited with their owners. But doggy day camp is only one part of the full-service resort, which includes a veterinary hospital and boarding kennel.
Two on-staff veterinarians, Dr. Andrew Coonce and Dr. Ray Gniadek,, keep pets healthy with regular exams, vaccinations, and dental services. Additionally, the resort houses 50 canine suites and oversized cat condos, complete with shelving and a blanket, to keep pets safe and content.
