If you don’t travel with your own pet nanny, doggie day care is the way to go. Boarding, day care, Web cams and indoor/outdoor facilities are standard at many of the intown drop-offs, some of which offer services ranging from grooming to all out spa treatments.

Midtown’s Atlanta Dog Spa gives massages, hot oil treatments, full-services grooming, dry skin treatments and other spa services in addition to typical play areas (if you call doggy pools, futons and TVs playing dog-friendly movies “typical”).
