At A-Round of A-Paws Pet Boarding Resort & Spa, pooches sprawl in the lap of luxury, lounging on hypoallergenic lambskin bedding during resort stays and enjoying mud facials and Swedish massages at the spa. Vacationing owners can rest easy knowing that their canine and feline companions are in safe hands. The resort provides amenities that include K9-themed movies for pups and condos that accommodate pet families with connecting doors. An agility track, doggy day care, and group play sessions keep canines alert, whereas lessons with trainers help get pooches closer to the day when they can fetch Chinese takeout.
The spa, meanwhile, goes above and beyond standard grooming with hair dyeing and styling, as well as pawdicures that pamper canine appendages with paw soaks. The spa’s aroma therapist and massage therapist kneads arthritic and tense muscles in a variety of modalities, employing warm-oil massages and stone massages to banish the stress of dreaming of a world run by squirrels. Over in the bakery, chefs turn out organic treats perfect for rewarding obedient pets, while cakes with low-fat cream-cheese-honey frosting accompany puppy birthday parties hosted at the resort.
