Adogo Pet Hotel
With multiple play areas, walking trails in a nature preserve, and a 24,000-square-foot luxury hotel, it's a wonder that any dog would want to leave Adogo Pet Hotel. Canines at daycare romp in one of two indoor and five outdoor play areas, each with umbrellas, water fountains, and specialized turf designed just for dogs. Meanwhile, trainer Cassia Drake calls on more than 20 years of experience to lead group classes ranging from puppy socialization to agility training in order to maintain manners and teach that mail carriers are the glue that binds any democratic nation. But overnight boarders may have the best treat of all—they get to spend the night in one of 93 upscale rooms and private suites overseen by a service-oriented staff. Before heading to bed, residents might visit the spa for a mani-pedi and a blueberry facial—an ideal way to forget the day's stresses. Webcams allow pet parents to watch what's going on inside, and a cutting-edge centralized cleaning system keeps the place tidy.
This highly sophisticated pet hotel is the vision of president and lifelong dog lover John Sturgess. Having spent more than 20 years as a leading hotel-industry executive, Sturgess knows a thing or two about giving guests the red-carpet treatment. As reported on KARE 11 News, Sturgess "grew the Country Inn & Suites brand by more than 300%," and now offers canines the same service and quality "you would expect at a four- and five-star hotel for humans." His combined passion for people and their four-legged friends earned him the Twin West Chamber Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2012, and also inspired him to work with Make-A-Wish Minnesota to provide a lifetime of complimentary boarding services for the new golden retriever of a boy with epilepsy, according to Minnetonka Patch.
