Tongue wagging, a playful pooch scampers around Wonder Dog Ranch's rubber-floored play area while others lounge on couches and gnaw on toy bones. Nearby, a staff member looks on, making sure the pups don't engage in any bad behavior, such as fighting or off-track betting.
The supervision is more of a precaution than anything because Wonder Dog Ranch requires dogs to pass a complimentary temperament test before they're allowed to frolic with the others during daycare or stay overnight in the cage-free boarding facilities. For those who pass the test with flying colors or grease the right palms with their slobber, playground equipment, faux grass, and a pint-sized bed await.
The staff ensures that its wards stay safe with more than just a temperament test—they also use eco-friendly cleaners and have a local vet come out periodically to inspect the premises. A portion of the fee collected for each dog's stay is donated to a local pet-friendly charitable organization, such as the Foothill Unity Center Pet Food bank.
San Dimas Pet Grooming transforms dirty, tangled locks into fluffy fur for dogs of all sizes with gentle bathing techniques. In addition to its grooming services, San Dimas can also provide pet sitting and boarding and conduct nonanesthetic dental services.
Tearing into a perfectly charred, sauce-covered rack of ribs satisfies the stomach, and the knowledge that you made them yourself feeds the soul. Students can do just that in classes held by the nonprofit organization California BBQ Association, which shares all of its proceeds with children’s charities throughout the state. The course catalogue includes beginner and advanced classes led by pit masters such as Ric Gilbert, an inductee to the association’s hall of fame, and Harry Soo, a contestant from the first season of TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters. Fees cover the equipment and food needed to prepare dishes, freeing students from having to stop at a barbecue-sauce river and fill up some water bottles on their way to class.
Zoom Room Claremont tutors pups alongside their owners using positive reinforcement and plenty of socialization during small group classes. Single Puppy Preschool help wean 8- to 16-week-old canine kids from housebreaking, nipping, and using misplaced modifiers, and Puppy Agility classes help slightly older pups learn to dart quickly over basic obstacles. Alternatively, the six-week Obedience 1 course compels canine attention through games and challenges, and Scent Discrimination coaches high-energy noses in sniffing out hidden objects. As bashful bichons in the Shy Dog seminar gradually conquer their social anxiety in a controlled environment, canines in Tricks 1 increase their list of talents by learning to roll over, play dead, sit up, and pull a Milk-Bone from behind their owner's ear.

When a pet gets sick, it can’t tell its owner what’s wrong, or turn on its favorite TV show, or even take the day off from work. Fortunately, Dr. Stan and his staff speak canine and feline, and operate a top-of-the-line animal hospital equipped with everything an ailing cat or dog could need. Fully digital x-rays provide crystal-clear images with significantly reduced radiation, a wide-open waiting area prevents furry ones from feeling nervous and cramped, and a special cats-only room with an inviting kitty tree keeps felines purring in contentment. Adoptive parents can bring in their four-leggers for appointments ranging from regular checkups to treatments targeting acute or chronic health issues, which are performed by staff who are experienced in everything from vaccinations to dental cleanings to surgical procedures with or without anesthetics.
