In reality the place you take your pet is more for YOU than it is for them. What I mean by this is that your dog would probably be fine going to some dark, scary, place where they keep him or her in a kennel all day, but the thought of that happening is what drives us to find great places like Downtown Dog Lounge where the dogs are in an open air, playful, environment.
The Downtown Dog Lounge also has a variety of other services - such a an in-house vet, a doggy grooming salon, a training center (for both you and the pup) and even merchandise you can purchase - making it almost a one-stop shop.
I have taken advantage of the boarding and the daycare services offered - both of which are relatively inexpensive for the care and treatment your pet will receive. In order to board or have your pet at the daycare you need to have a physical exam and the staff has to "approve" your pet - in order to keep everyone safe. The fee is waived if your purchase a puppy package - which offers a better over all value anyway. So if your in the market - check out the Downtown Dog Lounge - you (and your pet) will be glad you did!
