Dog massages are also one of the luxuries offered at D Pet Hotels, which is considered one of the world’s most luxurious dog resort, spa, and boutiques. They’ve got locations in Encino and Hollywood, and offer extensive accommodations to make puppies feel, uh, spoiled, including spa services like “pet-icures,” high-end doggie beds, and -- of course -- flat screen TVs, so your pooch, like you, never has to miss Life in Pieces again.
Vigilant dog dad Barry Sonders has been bringing his beloved lab/pit mix, Sammie, to this hound haven for three years now for both boarding and weekly puppy playdates.
The hands-on owner explained, “It’s not that ‘magical’ stuff happens there, it’s that they actually care about your dog and more importantly know your dog!”
“Last time I was in New York for a week, I dropped off [my dog] Sammie there for boarding and they said, ‘Well, we know Sammie doesn’t get along with so and so, and they are in for Tuesday and Thursday, so we’ll trade them off, but also, Sammie gets along with Big Lou and he’s here, so it’ll be great,” Barry explained.
