When dog lovers travel, DogVacay keeps their pups out of impersonal kennels and connects them with responsible canine hosts in their city. Instead of awaiting their owner's return in a kennel cage, dogs get the run of the house along with daily walks, challenging games of Scrabble, and playtime with well-socialized animals. Owners can browse thousands of profiles from professional pet-sitters, retired veterinarians, and fellow dog lovers based on location, home size, and family pets. Each host undergoes a five-step vetting process that includes an online application, reference checks, a phone interview, online training, and community reviews. Dog sitters also offer day care, walking, and training, and some claim professional credentials such as training expertise or pet CPR. To ensure peace of mind, DogVacay provides insurance and emergency vet services as well as photo updates of the dog’s stay.

Bruno’s Bath House elevates the dog-boarding experience by housing pups inside plush suites that will remind them of home. Two times a day, room service peeks in, checking to make sure beds are comfy and bowls are brimming with filtered water. Dog-loving caregivers oversee dogs so that each pet receives ample attention as they gambol across the indoor and outdoor play areas or nap on communal couches. This attentive treatment carries over into Bruno’s Spaw, where dogs receive baths with plush add-ons such as aromatherapy, massage, and Pawdicures. Edible and wearable doggie accessories are also available at Bruno’s Bistro and Boutique.

If you can't already tell by the name, Pup-A-Palooza is dedicated to one thing: the well-being of your pup. At the self-service wash station, owners can wash and fluff dog coats, a much easier alternative than training pooches to run through the neighbor's sprinkler on command. Owners, meanwhile, can browse the aisles of pet accoutrements, which range from gourmet treats to custom-made beds and gleaming dog bowls adorned with fleurs de lis or spikes.

A parade of customers saunters out of Kit + Kaboodle's Austin and Lockhart locations donning edgy mohawks, neon hair color, and sassy tattoos. This is not a group of teenagers from an ’80s flick, though. It's a pack of leashed corgis and everything about their look, including the hair dye and temporary tattoos, is nontoxic and tear-free. The technicians at Kit + Kaboodle love adorning pooches in such details. They groom dogs with organic and natural products and augment treatments with quirky trim such as handmade pup feathers. Their pet-sitting services include drop-ins and daily dog walks to exercise canines, administer medication, or refill food bowls while owners are at work or visiting their secret dogs.

Online retailer PetFlow.com saves pet owners a trip to the store by delivering dog and cat food and supplies from more than 100 brands, including Hill's Science Diet, Blue Buffalo, and Tidy Cats. Shoppers can narrow searches by convenient categories such as age, lifestyle (organic or grain-free), and health focus (including dental care or sensitive stomach), lavishing four-legged companions with the custom nutrition needed to keep Lassie's coat glossy or help a cat ace its college-entrance exam. For hassle-free shopping, animal aficionados can set up automatically recurring orders and customize an automated delivery schedule that sends email notifications one week prior to shipment, sure to keep Cheshire cats grinning and dogs donning bibs instead of barking at the sound of the doorbell.

Four-legged fans of sideline performers can show support in select cheerleading uniforms or get in shape for the following season with assorted rope, plush, and disk toys. For an extra special gift, personalization options make other spirit-showing pooches look like amateurs and keep sports announcers from calling every dog Rover.:
