$29 for Two Doggy-Daycare Sessions ($60 Value)
Daycare sessions include morning and afternoon play sessions divided by a noontime nap in individual rooms. Dogs socialize during romps through indoor play apparatuses and the outdoor canine country club, which includes splash pools and mud-free artificial turf. Drop-offs are welcomed as early as 6 a.m. and pickups until 7 p.m. A short video on the company's homepage has additional information on daycare and the half-acre facility.
You Luckie Dog!
Rick DuBois left a career in the cutthroat corporate world in favor of his current and more humane profession as the owner and resident "pack leader" at You Luckie Dog! The lifelong pooch aficionado brings more than 20 years of dog expertise—including a stint as a chow-chow breeder and trainer—to his canine daycare, boarding, and grooming spa. "Pretty much whatever a traditional kennel does, we do the opposite," says Rick, who personally groups his tenants into amiable playgroups according to size, temperament, and fastest time swimming the 300-meter dog paddle. The canine resort rejuvenates man’s best stressed friend with physical exercise and socialization, with stays ranging from day-long excursions to overnight boarding. The popular daycare service allows early morning drop-off and pickup as late as 8 p.m., and Rick makes a point of never smacking his customers with dollar-per-minute fees for late pickups. "I know what it's like to have meetings run long while people drone on. I want people to know I'm not trying to nickel-and-dime them."
