The Animal House
The staff seems more knowledgeable than the average big-box pet store employee, but the tanks are as overstocked as anywhere else or worse. The store is incredibly unpleasant to walk through, with aisles only big enough for one very thin person to walk down. Crossing paths with an employee or another shopper generally involves a lot of backward-shuffling until someone is out of the way. They do have a lot of hard-to-find items and rare fish, but I'm not sure putting dollars toward their business is a good idea. Also, I can't find their hours listed online anywhere, which is annoying, but may be helpful in keeping me from spending those dollars unwisely.
Tips & Advices
Pet owners usually sign a waiver stating that any injury or illness a dog suffers while at daycare is the responsibility of the owner. However, most facilities carry liability insurance and pet business insurance in the event of a serious incident. To prevent illness, facilities are strict about requiring proof of vaccination and general health from a veterinarian prior to accepting a dog. However, in an off-leash setting, scuffles or fights might occur. Reputable facilities will often hire vet assistants who can treat minor injuries and under-the-weather dogs.  For anything more serious, a good daycare should make it a priority to get the dog to a vet, and get in immediate contact with the owner.
