Does your pet need a vacation, too? Some of the area’s best retreats for your furry friends are in Rockville. At The Ruff House Doggy Day Camp & Slumber Party, four-legged guests sleep and play in an open environment, unless the owner requests a kennel. Dogs are separated by temperament in open playpens, but owners can opt for a private 3-by-5-foot overnight suite for an even greater escape. Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resort offers more than just a place to board your pets. Its veterinary team sees pets for routine checkups and emergency care, too. A referral program rewards recommendations by providing free services for your pet—and a “Happy Hour” charges owners by the hour, not the day, for pets whose stays are extended. Olde Towne Pet Resort truly puts pets on a pedestal. While pets are enjoying blueberry facials, nail treatments, mud baths or spa soaks, owners can join in the fun by watching via webcam.
