Nothing quite breaks a working parent's heart like watching the fur baby whimper at the window as you pull away. Short of hiring a live-in nanny, the best you can do is head to Metro Dogs downtown, which promises to raise your pet with you. Owner Amy Rosenthal is a pet CPR-certified alum of the Humane Society with a legacy of successful businesses. Metro Dogs classes are divided into spacious playrooms by size, breed, and demeanor, so your oversized introvert won't get hounded by her more raucous peers. Staff watches over play every minute to break up fights and encourage the more shy kids to join in. Troublemakers get time out in quiet rooms with treats and soothing trainers. With extra services like group etiquette exercises, baths, and manicures, it's worth the $150 a week just to start the work day watching your dog jounce off with the others.
