Voted Best Pet Boarding by readers of San Antonio Express-News in 2010 and 2011 and awarded first place on San Antonio Current’s Best Pet Groomer list in 2011, Lucy’s Doggy Daycare and Spa pampers pooches with fully stocked washing stations, luxury boarding, and interactive daycare. Owners man self-service wash stations, each equipped with commercial grooming equipment, shampoos, and dryers. The waist-high stations save bipeds from straining their backs, and the Downtown location’s electronic baths even rise up and down without pulley systems. Alternatively, two nights of luxury boarding safeguards canines in their owners’ absence as mutts lounge in beds and play in doggy daycare.
Interactive daycare sends pooches outdoors to a half-acre dog park at the Thousand Oaks location or the 10,000-square-foot outdoor play area at the Downtown location, with small and large dogs separated into different groups at both locations. Mutts spend 2–7 hours each day frolicking and discussing optimal burial approaches for chewed slippers in the fresh air as their owners watch via online webcams. During inclement weather, indoor play areas let pooches stage their reenactments of Hamlet with more controllable lighting.
