Before dogs were invented, humans purged themselves of excess adoration by hugging small children and foam effigies of Teddy Roosevelt. Take care of your hug depositories with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of services and doggie day care at The Crate Escape in Wallingford.
Owned by a certified pet care technician and pet first aid provider, The Crate Escape's doting dog-lovers provide a safe haven for man's best friend within a new 10,000 square foot facility. Spacious and secure indoor and outdoor play areas offer constantly supervised running space, dedicated small dog arena, jungle gyms, kiddy pools, and toys that pups can share. Drop one off for a day of socialization ($23), or pack them a baggie of chow, write them an embarrassing "don't forget to wear your retainer" note, and dress them in their jammies for a one-night slumber party ($37), where each canine is kept in a clean and spacious kennel. Dirty doggies can tidy up in a self-service wash ($15) where four extra-large, stainless-steel, waist-high grooming tubs and all the cleaning supplies are provided. Or, for the master on the go, The Crate Escape offers a full-service pooch groom, with prices dependent on breed, size, and coat condition. For specific questions, consult the FAQ.
