At A Dog's Life, Lassie-loving owners Chris Bias and Barb Smith cosset boarders and bathers in an 11,500-square-foot hound haven. Inside the self-serve showers, DIY dog-bathers can cleanse canines using customized ear cleaner and shampoo, covering dogs with shampooey foam until they resemble dog-shaped clouds. Afterward, manes can be styled utilizing a mélange of accessories including towels, brushes, combs, and nonheating blow-dryers. Then pups and their parents can depart, leaving a mop-wielding staff member to tidy up residual dirt, grime, and cat cooties.
Hounds who arrive for a full-day or five-day visit can catch their tails on the facility's rubberized floor or chase car mirages inside the outdoor play zone under the constant watch of trained human supervisors. During stays, dogs can munch on healthy snacks or even watch movies specifically made for tail-wagging film critics.
