A certified military dog handler, we use strict military/police training style with verbal praise rather than shock collars or treats to train clients' dogs. He works a true trainer-canine bond into each effort, calling on decades of training experience with every dog he meets. Dogs soon learn how to live peaceably with their human companions as we reinforces on- and off-leash obedience and teaches them common commands such as "heel," "stay," and "sit."
In a custom-built mobile dog washing unit, The Pooch Mobile’s team of groomers travels to dirty dogs all around Henderson to give them a thorough cleansing in veterinarian-approved hydrobaths.

Heather Brooks plays with dogs for a living. The results of these puppy-fests can be seen in her portfolio of candid portraits that capture each pooch's unique personality. After honing her photographic craft on human families, Heather decided to launch Pupparazzi, carting her equipment to canines' natural habitats to snap up-close and personal puppy pics in black and white and full color. Heather knows all the tricks of the trade, like eschewing flash for natural light and shooting under a tree for the kind of soft light that brings out a pup's true eye color. Her telephoto lenses and fast shutter settings are able to capture the quick flick of a puppy's tail or the moment before a dog realizes that the Frisbee he's about to catch is actually a miniature UFO. Heather snaps her shutter for cats and other animals, too, and when the flashbulb frenzy comes to a close, pet owners can decorate their homes and bodies with fine-art prints and custom jewelry featuring their furry friend's face.
Poop Magician's uniformed technicians have scooped canine waste for more than 15 years. Each week, crews scoop grass clean of all waste before hauling their cargo away, taking pains to secure gates and preserve the dignity of lawn-flamingo arrangements. Dogs may be present in yards at the time of cleaning, though customers are welcome to be out attending biweekly wood-whittling classes as per usual.
The expert instructors at Talisman Farm introduce students to european classical riding techniques such as dressage and show jumping following a curriculum designed by Will Faerber, a decorated show rider who studied extensively in Portugal with dressage master Nuno Oliveira. Faerber's training philosophy focuses on training horse and rider to act as one, showing absolute poise and balance whether they're hurdling a 5-foot fence or trotting through a booby-trapped house. Private lessons in the 5-acre equestrian center focus on the fundamentals of dressage riding and show jumping, beginning with appreciating each horse’s biomechanics so that students can ride them properly. The professional instructors are willing to work one-on-one with students of all skill levels to help them improve their riding skills. The outfit takes the same approach to jumping and vaulting lessons, which are held in the arena and geared toward preparing students for participation in horse shows.
