At Jonah's Ark Doggie Playcare & Training, play is the key term. In this 2,000-square-foot indoor playground, dogs romp freely, toss toys into the air, and clamber on and off agility obstacles. Plenty of lounge space offers tired pups quiet time as well. According to co-owner Saro Boghozian, wrestling and chasing other dogs not only teaches pups how to behave better, but also aids in their mental development. For further canine education, owners can enroll dogs in the center's training courses. During classes, the staff appeals to each dog's natural intelligence; owners are taught to train their dog with praise, rather than coax them with treats or discipline them with a rolled-up newspaper.
