Doggie day care: Pets get pampered at Biscuits & Bath Doggy Village.


Best Canine Pampering
Biscuits & Bath Doggy Village
227 East 44th Street

At Biscuits & Bath, your dog will receive the full spa treatment, from the natural shampoos and conditioners in his bath to the dog-friendly lap pool. After his grooming, he can hang in the loftlike day-care center complete with AstroTurf knolls and fire hydrants (day care, $30-$35 per day; grooming, $50-$120).

The Ritz-Canine
148 East 40th Street

Does your pooch not like to run with the pack? Book a room at the Ritz-Canine, a lushly appointed boarding facility in a renovated carriage house, where the staff-to-dog ratio is kept very low (capacity tops out at 50 dogs). Overnight rates range from $55 per night (a shared, standard suite) to $250 (the presidential suite, complete with TV and VCR). Pups are treated to nightly turndown service (a bone-shaped treat on their bed), Posturepedic bedding, and a "Rumpus Room" complete with treadmill.
