With 20 years of experience working with horses, Anna Baker makes her equine expertise available to the public through an array of riding services. Students as young as 5 can receive a proper introduction to horses through a firm hoof shake followed by private lessons in the English and Western riding styles. Baker also trains horses, offering their owners packages that include room and board for their equine friends as well as trailer parking.
At Happy Tails Pet Care's kennel-free dog boarding facilities, a caring, professional staff trained in pet first aid and CPR nurtures pooches with exercise, socialization, and large helpings of love. During the day, canine boarders can socialize with other dogs by chasing squirrels, fetching balls, and comparing notes on the area's premium fire hydrants in daycare and during 60- to 90-minute play groups held at local parks. Worn out by a day of energetic exercise, boarders will plop down into soft, fluffy beds, and drift off to dream about bacon-flavored newspapers and the final defeat of their feline arch nemeses.
Though dogs might be colorblind, it's likely they will find comfort in the bright and colorful private suites at The Golden Paw. The boarding kennels are each coated in fresh, natural colors that remind canine visitors of healthy lawns, and also feature amenities such as flat-screen TVs, plush bedding, and web cameras so owners can make sure their dogs are happily eating, playing, and flossing their teeth. In addition to providing pets with a little rest and relaxation, the team provides full-service grooming and obedience training, and recently added daycare to its list of services.
After spending 10 years living in the United States, Isadora Davis realized that she had looked to her dogs for comfort during the transition from Brazil to America and wanted to honor the creatures that made her smile. The Pet Lounge was born. To pamper pooches, Isadora offers cage-free overnight boarding in suites outfitted with TVs and raised beds. During the day, guests can drop off their pups for daycare or positive-enforcement behavior training. The Pet Lounge’s self-serve washing stations allow owners to use Pet Head shampoo, conditioner, and high-velocity dryers for cleaning their dogs after they’ve rolled around in the mud or participated in a beach-volleyball tournament.

Grooming sessions at K9 Dog Park offers several services, including a pre-clip to prepare pooches for a wash; a scrub-free bath that blends water, shampoo, and conditioner chosen for each dog's skin and coat, and oxygen in a gentle massaging jet; a dry; and a finish trim that accentuates pattern lines. Customers can purchase base grooming packages or can add à la carte services. For an additional fee, adorning dogs can be finished with a bow, bandana, or dinner jacket.
In addition to grooming, K9 Dog Park's staff supervises a climate-controlled indoor playground—including exercise and agility areas—where dogs romp and socialize. Trainers also lead group and private classes in obedience, agility, and potty training for both puppies and adult dogs, as well as a first-aid and CPR course so owners know what to do in case of an emergency.
