Nestled on sprawling, tree-lined terrain, Black Creek Hill Farms cultivates horse-human friendships with lessons for students of all experience levels and guided trail rides through local landscapes. The full-service stable is owned and operated by experienced horsewoman Brenda Jernigan, whose love of and dedication to horses has been evident since she was born with one in her hand.
Her experienced guides, both equestrians since childhood, spearhead expeditions into the pond-spotted wilderness, starting with basic equine etiquette for those who have never ridden a horse. They also conduct lessons at the homestead, tailoring each session to individual skill and comfort level and teaching fundamentals such as grooming and affixing saddles onto steeds or little brothers. Therapeutic rides can accommodate special needs, varying in length based on riders' attention spans, and summer camps enthrall kids with crafts, companions, and the nurturing presence of horses.
The canine-compatible staff of Pet Starz trains, entertains, and watches over pooches in the indoor and outdoor activity areas of its colorful, cage-free facility.
Professional grooming services keep companions stylish, and obedience and puppy-training classes help pets master the art of sitting, staying, and memorizing the location of potentially dangerous wells. Staffers help their quadruped charges become more comfortable with other dogs and breeds, and a thrice-daily cleaning of all activity areas and kennels ensures pups stay healthy, clean, and safe.
All Pets Considered offers the best in pet foods, pet supplies, and gifts for pet lovers. We have a full service Salon & Spa for dogs and cats. We've been serving the Triad since 1992.
Camp Bow Wow’s canine counselors—all rigorously trained in pup health care and behavior—lavish pooches with attention and stimulation while their owners are away at work or on trips. Before being left for daycare or boarding, a dog and owner will first attend a three-hour meet and greet at any time during Camp Bow Wow's normal business hours, during which new recruits can be monitored for their play behavior, sociability, and celebrity likeness. Then, under staffers’ watchful gazes, pups can frolic all day in three spacious indoor-outdoor play areas in which they are grouped by temperament and size to prevent unfair matches of Trivial Pursuit. Dogs staying overnight receive a treat before bedding down in their own spacious cabin, equipped with a fleece blanket and comfortable bed. Feel free to peep at four-legged companions at leisure with live camper cams, which broadcast feeds of Camp Bow Wow's play rooms spliced with breaking news of royal pet weddings.
A team of talented veterinarians lead the way at Animal Hospital at Brier Creek, where they take care of furry friends using state-of-the-art technology in a warm and loving environment. Owners can tune in to a 24-hour website with cameras trained on their pets to keep an eye on their recovery, and dogs and cats receive free bandanas or catnip with their visits. See the hospital's FAQ page for additional information.
If the vet tech checking out the family dog is wearing a tiara, visitors to Lake Pine Animal Hospital shouldn't bat an eye. This tiara is proudly worn by the employee of the month, and is just part of the fun the staff has from day to day. Though the veterinary crew likes to laugh, they take each pet’s health very seriously.
They care for dogs, cats, reptiles, and small mammals with wellness services including comprehensive checkups and vaccinations, and more involved procedures such as surgery and radiology. They also bathe and groom furry friends, and board them while their owners are away or in hibernation.
Paws At Play supports pet owners with a variety of services from doggie daycare and cat boarding to pet grooming. During doggie daycare, pets get access to an indoor play gym, multiple outdoor play yards, and a dog pool. Overnight boarders can take advantage of these amenities before hunkering down in one of 38 private suites, which feature a window, adjustable feeding bowls, and raised bedding. The facility also boasts 18 private cat suites where felines can bask in natural sunlight and sway to the sounds of classical music. Separate ventilation systems prevent the smell of canine boarders from stressing out visiting cats.
Owner Dr. Paula Bullock doesn't want the cost of veterinary care to be the reason people must give up their pets. That's why she opened Affordable Animal Care, a full-service veterinary hospital. There, she and her team work with clients to develop affordable-treatment plans. Treatments include spaying and neutering, as well as medical, dental, and surgical procedures. Vaccinations are also available, with walk-ins welcomed for pets 1 year and older.
At Healthy Paws Animal Hospital, licensed veterinarians and their well-trained medical staff care for pets of all stripes, including dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles, and birds. Both of the animal hospital's locations are equipped with digital x-ray technology, onsite laboratories, and surgical facilities to handle anything from emergency care to routine medical and dental procedures and checkups.
Soap bubbles float through the air as dogs try to outdo each other by catching them between their teeth. Meanwhile, their comrades bound up playground slides and race across artificial turf. At Dog Holiday Resort, the staff aims to keep its daycare and boarding charges active throughout the day with these types of energy-busting activities. The dogs spend most of the day socializing in one of the play yards with like-minded pups. They chase balls thrown by an automatic machine and cool off in dog-sized pools as attentive staff members keep a close watch. Dogs who are less active due to age or temperament can cuddle with staff members on sofas in the lounge. Meanwhile, cats get similar treatment in their own sanctuary, preening under one-on-one attention from staff. As pets enjoy themselves, owners can check in on their canine or feline charges via webcam.
Additionally, the center offers training classes, during which dog owners learn to influence their pooches with basic commands such as "sit," "stay," and "give me back my shoe." Both training sessions and grooming appointments can be arranged during daycare or boarding, so that dogs look and act their best when they are reunited with their owners.
Dogs naturally travel in packs, eat in packs, and play in packs, which is why the dog nannies at Happy Tails Dog Care socialize each tail-wagging guest with the other dogs in their cage-free boarding facility. Every four hours at the daycare center, the pet specialists walk the dogs using proper leash methods to prevent them from tugging. They also provide daily grooming services by clipping nails, brushing coats and teeth, and cleaning ears. In addition to cleaning pets, dog nannies are on hand every hour of the day.
Brier Creek Pet Hotel proprietor Lisa Sarvas is a veterinarian who also breeds and shows dogs. The pet hotel—which offers both daycare and boarding—is an extension of her love for animals.
Daycare charges enjoy several indoor or outdoor play periods, either in groups or one-on-one with staff members. Overnight guests bunk down in private suites with access to a covered outdoor run; upgrades include elevated beds, televisions, and exclusive exercise space. There's also a groomer on staff to make sure dogs look their best for any upcoming dates with fire hydrants.
