ChaCha's Doggie Day Care keeps dogs frolicking most of the day before letting them pass out in private suites equipped with bedding, chew toys, and relaxing music. Encouraging canine exercise, the cage-free facility features climate-controlled indoor and outdoor play areas equipped with pools, hoses, snuggle blankets, balls, and hand-shaped seats large enough to make mastiffs imagine life as a chihuahua. Thanks to a 24-hour webcam system, owners can watch as their pooches play, eat, and sleep. ChaCha's Doggie Day Care adamantly adheres to rules and regulations in place to protect the safety and health of both workers and furry guests.
Since 1974, Leone Equestrians has saddled students upon gentle steeds amid the six arenas, pastures, and professional all-weather footing of its show stable. Drawing from years of international horse-show experience, professional instructors guide students of all experience levels through hunter and jumper techniques, providing students with an alternative travel method to mule-pulled shopping carts. Students learn to groom, saddle, and care for their horses, and may linger in the stable outside of class times to witness staff members exercising the noble beasts. Students should prepare for lessons with helmets, long pants, and heeled boots, and abstain from wearing loose jewelry or cumbersome chain-mail veils.
We promote happy, healthy dogs by providing comfortable overnight boarding accommodations, a fun dog day care program, and effective dog training solutions.
When you are traveling or need to board your dog for any reason, you shouldn't have to worry about how your dog is getting along without you.
Founded in 2006, the Vincent family's 3-acre ranch makes pups feel right at home when their families can't be there to care for them. "There are no cages here," Andrea Vincent explains on her website. "There are no kennels." Unlike even the best boarding facilities, where dogs are isolated in private suites, the Vincents' maximum of four furry guests roam their house at will. An enclosed outdoor play area stretches 1.5 acres, providing plenty of room for canines to play fetch, investigate odors, or negotiate a peace agreement between themselves and their own tail.
Rick DuBois left a career in the cutthroat corporate world in favor of his current and more humane profession as the owner and resident "pack leader" at You Luckie Dog! The lifelong pooch aficionado brings more than 20 years of dog expertise—including a stint as a chow-chow breeder and trainer—to his canine daycare, boarding, and grooming spa. "Pretty much whatever a traditional kennel does, we do the opposite," says Rick, who personally groups his tenants into amiable playgroups according to size, temperament, and fastest time swimming the 300-meter dog paddle. The canine resort rejuvenates man’s best stressed friend with physical exercise and socialization, with stays ranging from day-long excursions to overnight boarding. The popular daycare service allows early morning drop-off and pickup as late as 8 p.m., and Rick makes a point of never smacking his customers with dollar-per-minute fees for late pickups. "I know what it's like to have meetings run long while people drone on. I want people to know I'm not trying to nickel-and-dime them."
Inside Planet Canine’s 1,400-square-foot converted warehouse and outside in its spacious, fenced-in yard, the happy sounds of frolicking dogs can be heard as animal-loving staffers supervise up to nine hours of daily outdoor playtime. Led by canine enthusiast Kate Marden, the staff watches over pups as they cavort on play structures and splash in shallow pools during the hot summer months. After playtime, dogs rush indoors to be fed Merrick wheat- and corn-free food before bedding down on blankets and bath rugs. Each canine lounges in his or her own area on overnight stays, for naptime, and during writing sessions for poetry composed entirely of panting and barking noises.
