The dog lovers at Hounds on the Hudson believe that a pet owner's peace of mind is equally important as the pet's happiness. To put minds at ease, the daycare and boarding facility's webcams enable clients to check up on their canine counterparts online. What they'll see is dogs galloping around the 1,500-square-foot outdoor run, or pups playing poker in the four indoor play spaces. The highly trained staffers keep dogs under 24-hour supervision and reward good behaviors to maintain a comfortable, positive environment. For overnight boarding, furry guests snooze on raised Kuranda beds inside climate-controlled suites. Dogs in need of obedience training can also practice good manners with trainers that have been featured on Animal Planet's Underdog to Wonderdog.
The team at Paw Prints New York is composed of animal lovers who take fastidious care of four-legged friends while their owners are away. Supplying everything from dog walks to at-home play sessions, the Paw Prints’ crew builds trusting relationships with pets to ensure they’re safe and sated. The animal attendants can even digitize their services, providing virtual walks so owners can check in on pets via Skype or Facebook.
Like air and food, dogs have always been a part of K9 to 5 owner Meghan Leavy’s life. She was brought up with dogs, currently owns a golden retriever and a dachshund, volunteers with animal organizations, and takes care of other people’s beloved pets on a daily basis. Every pooch that Leavy and her staff care for is treated like one of the family, whether it needs a walk, a feeding, or just some special attention. Cats get their share of the love too: the team provides cat-sitting services that include feeding, dispensing medicine, and litter scooping. They can also bring in mail for owners who are on vacation.
Swifto dispatches, insured, bonded, experienced, and college-educated dog-walkers to take beloved dogs on walks. Each dog walker texts the owner when they pick up and drop off pets for their one-on-one private dog-walking experience. An online GPS-tracker lets owners know their pets’ whereabouts. Owners will also receive a picture of their pet enjoying the walk.
Though grooming prices depend on size, breed, and condition of the fur, the expert staff at Walter's will ensure satisfaction, meticulously giving your pup a breed-specific cut, puppy cut, show cut, or exotic cut to your liking. They'll give dogs a gentle nail trim ($10), bath ($50–$90), or full grooming package ($70–$120), including shampoo, fluff dry, style, ear cleaning, nail trim, and more. If you're busy painting the walls or showing your home to prospective buyers, drop the dog off at daycare for $45 or utilize overnight boarding services ($55 dogs, $40 cats). Walter's will even help you show some love for your furry friend with a pet-friendly birthday party ($95). If you use today's Groupon for any service under $65, you'll be given a credit of the remaining balance to use toward the next visit.
