The behavior specialists at Dog World Resort pamper and engage vacationing canines at a spacious facility with 10,000 square feet of fenced outdoor space that offers daycare, boarding, and grooming services. During counselor-supervised doggy daycare, pups are divided by their size, playfulness, and reading level before they can frolic through two indoor playrooms strewn with toys, slosh through kiddie pools, or clamber atop playground equipment outdoors. Elderly pets wind down in a separate sanctuary devoted to relaxation and idle snacking. Overnight stays at the Doggy Hotel include daytime hours spent at daycare and evenings filled with movies or playtime before mutts fall asleep inside large crates or spacious Taj Mahal suites, which sport Parisian wall decals and cheetah-print couches long enough to fit a reclining Napoleon. Owners can request extras such as a nature walk or homemade treats, and can retrieve four-legged friends at any hour with prior notice. At the spa, canines of all sizes are coddled with standard bathing, brushing, and nailcare services. Aromatherapy packages scent fur with vanilla or lavender aromas before staffers scrub teeth and top heads with bows to make them look more like luxury sedans purchased on the sly.
