When a man gets in trouble, he’s said to be "in the doghouse"; when a dog gets in trouble, he’s said to be "in the doghouse" since only humans can speak and they naturally define all terms in relation to themselves. Give your canine comrades what they’d ask for if they could with today’s Groupon to Chateau Poochie in Pompano Beach. Choose between the following options:
• For $15, you get a full day of doggie daycare with a temperament evaluation (a $60 value).
• For $19, you get a one-night stay for your dog in a Parlor Grand Suite (a $69 value).
Featured on Animal Planet's Most Outrageous Pet Digs, Chateau Poochie's friendly staff treats, trains, and tucks in coddled canines in a luxurious 10,000-square-foot dog hotel. Pamper your pooch with the hotel's daycare, which includes invigorating strolls and, for an additional charge, freshly prepared cuisine specially tailored to dogs that have dietary restrictions or difficulty working microwaves. After a brief temperament assessment to identify behavioral habits, four-legged friends can frolic with their peers, boogie down at the doggie disco, or burn calories at the fitness center.
With an overnight stay, pups are swaddled in the plush bedding of a Parlor Grand Suite, furnished with a flat-screen television, full-length glass doors, and calming classical music performed by Vivaldi's chow chow. Some suites include a streaming webcam, which allows for check-ins with your furry family member as he or she indulges in amenities that can include teeth brushing and cuddle time. With an accommodating concierge, a professionally trained staff, and meticulous housekeeping, Chateau Poochie consistently maintains service standards high enough for humans to envy.
Animal Planet’s Most Outrageous Pet Digs dubbed Chateau Poochie the “world’s most decadent hotel for dogs” for the lavish care with which the staff treats its canine guests. Tiny nails click on the white marble floors of the lobby, where overnight guests check in at a mirrored front desk beneath a crystal chandelier before a staff member escorts them to one of the suites. Each suite is appointed with raised beds and fleece bedding, access to filtered water, and classical music, while most bear flat-screen televisions so guests can keep an eye on their investments in squeaky toy futures. At mealtime, pet owners choose from a freshly prepared menu of roasted meat accompanied by steamed vegetables and brown rice.
During the day, both overnight and daycare charges enjoy playtime at the Social Lounge, where pups are separated by size so they can romp safely on impact-resistant floors as they dive through hoops, clamber up steps, or challenge their tails to a winner-take-all battle royale. They can also enjoy the fresh air in the outdoor garden or schedule individual playtime with someone from the staff.
Chateau Poochie also houses a luxe salon and spa where grooming sessions can be supplemented by facials and pedicures. Therapeutic massages help whisk away tension, and training sessions teach pups better manners. Cats can get in on the overnight luxury in their own three-tiered abodes, and pet parents keep an eye on their furry friends via 24-hour streaming Web cam.
