Pet Hotels in Tucson

by Mary Freeman

Tucson, being the second-largest city in Arizona, is home to hundreds of accommodations catering to all types of people. Some of them, on the other hand, don't cater to people at all, but to our furry friends. Pet hotels in Tucson are typically quite large, with many amenities and services.

Sabin Canyon Pet Resort

Sabin Canyon Pet Resort offers boarding and grooming services for dogs, cats and exotic animals, from guinea pigs to snakes to large and small and fish. A small-dog area is reserved exclusively for small, timid dogs that do better not mingling. Deluxe, private suites feature raised cot beds for dogs. Rooms for cats have hiding spots and high perches to make the feline more comfortable. Dogs can exercise indoors and outdoors, and outdoor bedding is put out when the weather permits.

At-Home Kennels Pet Resort

Since 1992, the At-Home Kennels Pet Resort has been boarding and grooming cats, dogs, as well as less conventional pets, such as rabbits, ferrets, iguanas, hamsters and birds. Each dog kennel include dog doors, so animals can come and go as they please. Two dogs from the same family can room in the same kennel if their owners prefer. Hidey houses, play structures and scratching posts equip each of the cat kennels. The kennel supplies food, beds and bowls, but owners can bring their own supplies.

Kennel Comfort Pet Motel

Located near the Tucson Airport, the Kennel Comfort Pet Motel provides boarding and run services for cats and dogs alike. Different sized runs allow for more exercise for different sized dogs. Litter boxes equip the outdoor cat runs for a cleaner environment; carpets, baskets and hidey houses stock the indoor cattery. The kennel will pick up and drop off pets from their homes, as well as from the airport. The staff groom dogs staying at the kennel upon request and as necessary.

Dawg House Dog Daycare

The Dawg House Dog Daycare provides day care services, as well as overnight boarding. During the day, dogs are kept in a wide open space, with toys, agility equipment and scattered beds and couches. Dogs sleep in roomy crates, large enough for a Great Dane. The staff is trained and certified in pet first aid and CPR, and is experienced in dog trimming, bathing and grooming. Owners are able to watch their dogs play on the kennel's live video feed on their web site.
