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 $78, you get two nights of boarding for two pets (an $84 value), two baths, and two pedicures (a $90 value) at Plantation Pet Resort in Oviedo (up to a $174 total value). Though cats can board with this Groupon, they will not receive a bath or a pedicure.
Plantation Pet Resort's animal whisperers help pets feel at home by giving them ample exercise and attention on 11 acres of grassy play space. Dogs bound into the day at 7:30 a.m., roaming one of two shaded outdoor play yards—one for big dogs and one for small—each with plentiful space for energetic games of frisbee, fetch, and Pin the Tail on the Schnauzer. Canines barrel across turf and engage in friendly tussles for two hours while staff members give pets’ heated and air-conditioned suites a thorough clean. Then happily weary dogs trot back to their spacious accommodations for breakfast and a nap, returning outside four to five more times during the day for a half hour or more. During hot summer months, wading pools offer respite for panting pooches, and year-round, TVs, DVDs, and radios keep pets from missing the comforts of home and the plot twists of their favorite soap operas. Separate, calmer accommodations are available for feline friends.
In addition to room and board, dogs receive a Hydrosurge spa bath with medicated shampoo that gently exfoliates skin, increases blood circulation, and aids in follicular flushing to help improve chronic skin problems and reduce shedding. Pedicurists also soothe paws with a nail trimming, discouraging vertical couch-scaling feats by eliminating toenail crampons.
Pets must be properly vaccinated to stay at the resort. This Groupon may not be used May 26–31, July 1–6, or September 1–6.
