In addition to a good education, the healthy American child requires regular playtime, an equal mix of wet and dry food, and the opportunity to bark vociferously at nothing. Treat your pooch like the kid next door with today's Groupon to New Orleans Dog Nanny: for $35, you get three full days of dog daycare (a $75 value) or two nights of fido boarding (an $80 value) at the New Orleans Dog Nanny's cage-free, round-the-clock-supervised dog hotel. You must provide an emergency contact that is available to pick up your dog in the event of an emergency, such as a hurricane evacuation.
New Orleans Dog Nanny offers attentive, personalized service to meet your dog's needs and belly-rub wants. Days are structured around playtime in indoor and outdoor rumpus areas lined with paw-friendly flooring and littered with tons of toys. In addition to around-the-clock supervision, the Dog Nanny has a free webcam feed so you can watch your critter any time of day. The Dog Nanny recently extended its daycare hours (6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.), and you can drop your dog off for up to 11 hours of daycare at a time. If you board your dog, he'll snuggle up in a roomful of Kuranda beds and other dogs while a staff member stays on-site as an honorary member of the pack. Your dog will feast each night and day according to your instructions with the food you supply.
To ensure your pup doesn't come home with any new pests, illnesses, or hurt feelings, all dogs that pass through the hallowed gates of the Dog Nanny's fun-den must provide up-to-date vaccination info and evidence of flea- and heartworm-prevention regimens, in addition to passing a temperament evaluation (read the full requirements here).
New customers/dogs only. Not valid July 2–4, 2010; December 24–26, 2010; or December 30, 2010–January 1, 2011. Subject to availability. Dogs must be at least six months old and spayed or neutered. Your dog must have his own collar and leash.
Though New Orleans Dog Nanny, also known as Au Pair Des Chiens, does not yet have many reviews, three Google Mappers give it an average 4.5-star rating:
- Whenever I bring my dog here, she gallops into the room, thrilled with the prospect of another stay at Au Pair Des Chiens. We love the fact that there are no cages. – Nicole
- Not only did we have peace of mind knowing that Zeus would be watched by the sweethearted employees, but the fact that he didn't have to be in a kennel at all was amazing. He was free to play with the other dogs and even got to cuddle with the night staff. – matt
