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 $35, you get $70 worth of boarding or daycare services at Little Dogs Resort & Salon in Salt Lake City.
Highly trained animal lovers at Little Dogs Resort & Salon pamper purse-sized puppies with engaging activities in a five-star boarding and daycare facility. Family pets in need of me-time away from the tiresome tumult of dirty dog parks and the dictator-like demands of house rules can book an overnight stay ($25–$35/night) at the cage-free doggie hotel. Canine callers enjoy luxurious accommodations in 4'x8' indoor playpens outfitted with soft settees, blankets, rugs, and tiny umbrellas in their water bowls. The pristine 4,000-square-foot facility entertains all pooch personalities with indoor games for the paw-protective, and outdoorsey animals can take a stroll around the half-acre fenced yard.
Pups in search of a daytime reprieve can take out their barrettes and let down their ears at doggy daycare Monday through Saturday ($2/hour). Little Dogs' staffers lead charges in playtime to howl along with Handel during music therapy and engage in cutthroat dice-throwing matches in which the contestant with the least un-opposable thumbs generally wins.
Little Dogs Resort & Salon takes on most dogs weighing 30 pounds or less, though some breeds are not well-matched for this environment. All visiting pets must be up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered if more than 6 months old.
