Owning a pet can be expensive due to the costs of food, trips to the vet, and bills for phone calls above the range of human hearing. Save a bone with today’s Groupon to Baxter’s K-9 Complex in St. Peters. Daycare drop-off runs from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and care lasts through 6:30 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get three days of doggie day camp (a $60 value).
- For $45, you get three days of overnight dog boarding (a $90 value).
At Baxter’s K-9 Complex, pups explore and gallivant around a 4,000-square-foot indoor dog park loaded with obstacles courses and playfellows. Hounds visiting for doggie day camp sink teeth into chew toys, rummage through tunnels, and attempt to topple Olympic long-jump records from atop ramps. High-energy and moderate play areas divvy dogs into comfortable levels of playfulness, and rest areas facilitate naps, snacks, and polite debates over a warm brandy.
Boarding pups don pajamas at nighttime for comfortable slumber, resting up to traverse the playscape during the day. Trained staff members break up scuffles if doggie disputes arise, and rubber-covered floors heighten protection against slipping. Before dogs can be admitted, owners must provide proof of rabies, DHPP, and bordetella vaccinations and pets must pass a free temperament test to prove they can play well with others and color in the lines.
