What You'll Get
Dog sitters, unlike egg sitters, never coop up their charges, avoid backyard squawking fits, and are usually mammals. Get some feather-free puppy love with today’s Groupon: for $57, you get a five-day doggy daycare pass (a $115 value) plus 15 percent off your cat or dog's first overnight stay at Cottonwood Pet Resort in Waterloo. Each pass is good for 12 hours on weekdays, or five hours on Saturdays.
Cottonwood Pet Resort is a family-owned-and-operated animalian wonderland that sits on 11 frolic-worthy green acres. Quadrupeds meeting daycare prerequisites are unleashed on the Doggie Den, a tail-wagging dream splayed in macrocosm across 2,400 square feet of indoor arena and 1,500 square feet of exterior synthetic Bermuda turf. Loving staff experienced in the arts of ear scratching and palm-paw high-fives make new arrivals feel at home and supervise agility mat exercises, ensuring all adorable animals use proper form to deliver roundhouse kicks and achieve full-nelson submissions. The resort’s webcams feed a constant video stream to owners who want to check out their better halves reveling in tail-chasing activities and olfactory odysseys.
Overnight lodging varies in size from 9 to 64 square feet for dogs ($21–$38), and cats have the choice of a suite ($12) or playroom admission ($16). Bowwows get perks like sheepskin bedding and Iams food from hands skilled in finding the sweet spot that elicits involuntary hind-leg movement. Cat quarters are situated well away from the dog accommodations, and feature perches and disdain-melting mood music with their TLC.
