Beating the heat in Scottsdale during the dog days of summer by escaping the Valley of the Sun for vacations in cooler climes is a must-do for residents. However, what to do with your canine and furry friends while you are away? Here are some pet hotels to consider when deciding where to board your four-legged family members:
First, featuring cage less boarding services is Always Unleashed, where dog “campers” stay in a home with free access to both indoors and outdoors. This facility offers both daily and weekly boarding options.
Another option to consider is Scottsdale Doggie Suites, located on East Indian Bend Road just west of the 101 freeway. This facility offers various suites of different sizes containing different amenities for your dogs, including televisions and beds. They offer structured playtimes for long-term boarding, and also offer daily and hourly doggie daycare services.
The Raintree Pet Resort is located on Raintree Drive just east of 82nd Drive, and offers boarding services for both dogs and cats. This resort plus medical center also offers daily dog care as well as long-term boarding for pets. The resort features an indoor pool, a splash pad as well as misted grassy play areas.
Finally, a bit farther afield, but with very positive reviews is the Scottsdale Pet Hotel, located near Scottsdale and McDowell Road in Tempe. Known for its dog and cat suites of varying sizes, this pet resort also offers doggie daytime care and grooming services. Another option to consider is crowd-sourcing suggestions via the app www.nextdoor.com and ask your neighbors where they like to board their furry family members. Other suggestions may even include pet sitters who are already familiar with the neighborhood.
