ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - Albuquerque canines have a new place to play all thanks to a new dog daycare and spa.
New Mexico's first Dogtopia is officially open for business.
Dogtopia is filled with multiple playrooms for dogs of similar size and temperament.
There is also a spa with groomers on-hand. Owners can also use it to wash their pets themselves.
Local husband-and-wife team Kim Bachechi and Oscar Gutierrez say they struggled to find convenient care for their dog. That is when they decided to open up the center.
"We needed a place while we were at work both to keep our dog occupied so he wasn't bored, to keep him entertained and also so he has friends and wasn't lonely. Also so he would wear himself out," said Bachechi.
Dogtopia also uses webcam technology in each room to allow pet parents to check in on their pups from their cell phones.
Dogtopia is located at 3301 Coors Blvd NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States, 87120.
