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.

Founded in 2007 by certified master dog trainer Jaime Van Wye, Zoom Room fosters relationships between dogs and their owners through obedience and agility classes. Obstacles such as hurdles, hoops, and ramps populate the interactive indoor facility, helping energetic pups burn off steam, gain focus, and get in shape for roles summer stock productions of Homeward Bound. In addition to basic obedience courses, specialty classes for shy or overly rambunctious dogs build confidence through positive reinforcement and a controlled class environment. Dogs seeking less structured outings often romp through half-hour blocks of private gym time, working through the agility course at their own pace.
