Our little island is blessed with many world class resorts and luxurious spas where we humans can play a little and pamper ourselves a lot. But what about our four legged friends? Where do Marco's canine residents and visitors go for some R&R and a little sprucing up? Why Critter Café of course!Critter Café is Marco Island's fi ve star doggie resort, spa and specialty store, where they offer luxury boarding, doggie daycare and complete doggie spa services in a relaxed loving environment, along with a well stocked store offering tempting organic bakery treats, specialty foods, toys and gifts. Boarding with all the Comforts of HomeCritter Café owners, Lisa and Kevin Howard, and their capable staff aim to love and care for each doggie visitor as if they were their own, doing everything in their power to make their stay as happy and comfortable as possible. If the guests like to socialize with other dogs there are two playrooms available (one for large dogs, and one for small) where they can participate in group play, while those who prefer a quieter time can remain in their private guest room, which is bright and spacious and comes complete with a comfy fl eece bed. Each resident will also receive several long walks each day (the fi rst one being at 10pm at night) and lots of one-on-one playtime with the staff - they'll even get a bedtime belly rub! Doggie DaycareAnd, if you can't be with your dog all the time, half and full day daycare at Critter Café provides a great opportunity for him or her to socialize with other dogs and get some exercise and stimulation in your absence. It also offers families who bring their dog on vacation with them a safe and guilt-free way to accommodate their pet while they go to the beach for the day, play golf, go fi shing or take part in any of the other great activities available on Marco that may not be dog friendly.A Grooming Experience your Pet will LoveAnd if you want your dog to look, feel and smell their best, then Critter Café is the place to bring them. Grooming includes a refreshing bubble bath, hand dry, brush and fl uff, ear cleaning, nail trim and fi nish-ing scissor cut. Cat and bunny grooming is also available.... I wonder if they could be persuaded to cater for kids and husbands too!Healthy Foods, Tasty Treats & Doggie Accessories GaloreCritter Café's store specializes in healthy, all-natural nutrition, homemade bakery treats (which really do look good enough for humans to eat), frozen raw food (which I have to admit doesn't look quite so appetizing!), yummy chews, natural supplements and all of the best holistic and organic dog and cat food. And if you want your pet to be the best dressed dog in town they have a great variety of collars, leashes and clothing as well as beds, food bowls, toys and gifts. What more could any dog ask?Critter Café is located at 810 Bald Eagle Drive. Call 239.389.8488 for more information and reservations.
