Dog Days

You're a loving dog owner, aren't you? Placing your hound in a cell all day makes you feel like Stalin. Or worse, a ranking official in the Ted Cruz campaign. Dog Days provides a more compassionate alternative. It offers 14,000 square feet of free-range indoor romping, with additional space outdoors, plus another location near the state Capitol. Better yet, playtime is divided based on size and temperament. There are sections for the big boys to frolic, another for the little guys, and yet another with beds for chill beasts who want to just cool out and watch from the sidelines. Dog Days also provides grooming and training, plus daytime and overnight stays. Because when it comes to leaving your dog with a stranger, you don't want to feel like you've dumped Fido in some canine version of a Soviet gulag.
