If left alone for too long, dogs begin to build up a resentment that manifests itself in chewing, barking, and refusing to help you defend your Iditarod championship title. Keep your team together with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get five half-day “Sit” sessions, which include up to five hours of dog daycare per session, at Double Dog Day Care (a $75 value).
Double Dog Day Care’s staff of kennel workers supervise puppy play dates in the spacious indoor paw paradise. The “Sit” package provides four-leggers with up to five hours of exercise and mutt mingling, supervised by certified dog trainers and enthusiasts, while owners attend to careers or picking up their pups' dry cleaning. The cage- and kennel-free facility includes a separate area for small dogs, and an exercise area padded with a 3/8-inch rubber floor to protect doggy joints and help provide the extra spring for round-off back handsprings in doggy gymnastics. Double Dog Day Care welcomes canine charges Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., and on Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
