The Canine Cure, LLC owner and trainer Mary Jean Alsina has spent years educating students. Her career began in a traditional classroom as a public-school teacher, honing her ability to relate to students and write the alphabet in perfect order. Eventually, she left the bells of public school behind to focus her teaching talents on furrier students, showing both pets and owners how to curb unwanted habits. Mary Jean prefers to keep both pup and parent comfortable during her sessions by hosting lessons in owners’ homes, where they feel relaxed.

VIPuppy Spa treats canines to human-grade comfort and amenities. During daycare, staffers separate dogs into groups based on age, size, and disposition for outdoor playtime, then supervise the play area to ensure none of the pups gets cheated out of his or her poker winnings. After a full day of play, dogs go home with their owners or drift off to sleep in a climate-controlled room as soothing music plays. The facility stays open 24 hours a day every day of the year, so owners can find a happy home for their dogs even during holidays or mass feline revolutions.

VIPuppy also beautifies furry friends with grooming services ranging from a hydro-massaging bath and coat conditioning to nail trimming and tooth brushing. Some of the services even deliver the pampering you might expect at a day spa—aromatherapy shampoos, facial scrubs, and applications of OPI’s special dogs-only nail product, Pawlish. Cats tired of barking for attention can also benefit from VIPuppy's grooming services; a cat groomer with 30 years of experience trims coats and clips nails for felines as well.

Matt Caranante’s journey to becoming a dog trainer started, oddly enough, with bed bugs. While working as a handler for a bed-bug-sniffing beagle, he realized how powerful the relationship between dog and owner could be. He went on to rescue another dog, this time an abused beagle from a high-kill shelter, and the reward he felt from rehabilitating his pet made his next step clear: He enrolled in Animal Behavior College’s dog-training certificate program and founded Let's Play!

As a positive-reinforcement dog trainer, Matt brings out canines’ best behavior by mixing work with fun activities that help channel their energy. He offers private, in-home sessions to disengage pups from remote controls, as well as group classes to work on basic obedience and manners. Matt also works on behavioral modification to solve common issues such as separation anxiety, dog aggression, and excessive barking.
