DALLAS — Chandeliers, nail polish, massage therapy, flat screen TV’s.

It's a relaxing spa atmosphere, but it's not for people. It's for pets.
 
Welcome to Paradise 4 Paws, a pet resort open every day of the year.
 
“We are also open 24 hours a day, so you don't have to work around our schedule... we'll work around yours,” said Saq Ndeem, top dog at Paradise 4 Paws.
 
That's convenient for owners on the go. The resort is located next to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
 
“Most people will come here and check their luggage, and leave their car here, and we shuttle them to and from the terminal,” said Johanna Newcomb, Chief ‘Barketing’ Officer. “But if you said, 'I'm running late, I can't make it,' I will meet you at the terminal.”
 
This team does not say no, but that "yes" comes with a price tag. Curbside check-in is an extra $20. Overnight parking for pet owners is $10, competitive with airport parking rates.
 
“We had a client of ours who was in the hospital, giving birth, and the dog was at home, so she contacted us,” Newcomb said.  Ultimately the team found a way into  her home, and brought the dog to the facility.

Pet suites start at $49 and climb to $100 a night for the presidential suite. It is loaded with mirrors and even cameras so owners can monitor every step.
 
“We also have 'slumber party' lounges, so if you don't want your dog to be alone at night, we can find a perfect slumber buddy for them,” Ndeem said.
 
But regardless of where they sleep, each animal gets cuddled in a nightly tuck-in service.
