Bored animals can easily get anxious, resulting in rebellious behavior such as furniture gnawing and forming a punk-rock cover band. Quash canine caterwauling with today's Groupon: for $20, you get 24 hours of dog boarding, which includes a sleepover, daycare, and play groups, at Happy Tails Pet Care (a $45 value).
At Happy Tails Pet Care's kennel-free dog boarding facilities, a caring, professional staff trained in pet first aid and CPR nurtures pooches with exercise, socialization, and large helpings of love. During the day, canine boarders can socialize with other dogs by chasing squirrels, fetching balls, and comparing notes on the area's premium fire hydrants in daycare and during 60- to 90-minute play groups held at local parks. Worn out by a day of energetic exercise, boarders will plop down into soft, fluffy beds, and drift off to dream about bacon-flavored newspapers and the final defeat of their feline arch nemeses.
