Banfield Pet Hospital, open seven days a week, one of the largest general veterinary practices in the country with more than 750 U.S. hospitals, cares for cuddly companions. Just like humans, pets need to be checked and examined so that the veterinarian has the opportunity to help prevent and identify any potential health issues. Pet-owners can relax as the experienced and friendly Harpinder Singh, D.V.M., leaves no floppy ear unturned during a thorough animal examination, culminating in the feline-favorite upside-down drop test.
Though online reviews for 3A Pet Sitting are still growing, four Yelpers award it a perfect five stars:
Sacred Cross Horse Services founder Ashley Mason has transformed her extensive background in horseback riding and show jumping into a unique training program. At stables tucked away in redwood forests, students attend English-style riding lessons that focus on basic fundamentals such as grooming, tacking, and learning how to bond with horses. The lessons cater to students' individual needs and skill levels while simultaneously prioritizing their education and enjoyment. Sacred Cross also leads horse camps for children, as well as lessons designed to impart a sense of responsibility, teach empathy, and stop them from trying to lead the dog into a canter. Students are required to wear long pants and heeled shoes while riding.

The equestrian trainers at Foxtail Farms conduct horseback-riding lessons for riders seeking leisure time atop a steed and for those considering competition. Amid a rural landscape of patchwork crop fields and untamed plains, horses lope, gallop, leap, and waffle on which shoes to wear that day as instructors lead intimate training sessions. Skilled in teaching the ins and out of hunter, jumper, and equitation riding, instructors help to foster horsemanship skills while preparing riders for many situations, including the show ring. Believing that success can only be found when both rider and horse have created a special bond, the trainers also work to create an atmosphere in which that bond can be nurtured and tempered.
Kathy Longwell, the pet purveyor behind All God's Creatures, draws on her experience in boarding facilities and kennels to care for dogs, cats, birds, and lizards on their home turf. The licensed, bonded, and insured caretaker has also earned certifications in animal CPR, first aid, and professional pet sitting through Pet Sitters International. When she isn't looking after pets and houses in their owners' absence, she takes dogs out for a stroll, runs errands, and looks after her own animal menagerie, which includes a german shepherd, cats, and a parrot that squawks ideas for movie premises in the dead of night.
At Fox K9 Training, Brian Fox, a certified trainer of search-and-rescue dogs, coaxes canines out of undesirable behaviors and imparts important obedience skills in classes for puppies and adult dogs. Some of Brian’s specialties include reducing aggression toward other dogs or people, excessive barking, and general anxiety.
Grooming technicians at The Barking Lot trim, shampoo, and brush pets including dogs of all sizes, cats, and bunnies. In addition to grooming both large and small furry animals, the technicians also clip bird wings and file their beaks. The Barking Lot also offers pet sitting and pet placement services to find animals new homes.
Rick DuBois left a career in the cutthroat corporate world in favor of his current and more humane profession as the owner and resident "pack leader" at You Luckie Dog! The lifelong pooch aficionado brings more than 20 years of dog expertise—including a stint as a chow-chow breeder and trainer—to his canine daycare, boarding, and grooming spa. "Pretty much whatever a traditional kennel does, we do the opposite," says Rick, who personally groups his tenants into amiable playgroups according to size, temperament, and fastest time swimming the 300-meter dog paddle. The canine resort rejuvenates man’s best stressed friend with physical exercise and socialization, with stays ranging from day-long excursions to overnight boarding. The popular daycare service allows early morning drop-off and pickup as late as 8 p.m., and Rick makes a point of never smacking his customers with dollar-per-minute fees for late pickups. "I know what it's like to have meetings run long while people drone on. I want people to know I'm not trying to nickel-and-dime them."
Adam and Marisa Beck love their pets almost as much as each other. First meeting as teachers, the couple decided early on that they'd follow their dreams and open a pet facility that educates pooches as they play and mingle under the watchful gaze of an experienced staff. In addition to grooming services, Barkley Square also boards cats and dogs overnight, protecting the health of each pup in their care by requiring tests for DH2PP, giardia, and bordetella. Every overnight stay comes with a full day of play, where dogs can learn the basics of social interaction, such as not pushing other dogs off the monkey bars.
Brittany of Dog Fit Unlimited professes a lifelong love of animals, which is what prompted her to begin her own dog-walking business. During each 30-minute walk), she and her canine charge explore neighborhood parks and hiking trails and take in the sights while the pooch meets other dogs and sniffs the grass for lost jewelry. She fortifies each pup with slurps of water and treats and takes photos so owners can check out their pooches' big smiles.
When it comes to dogs, Elite Canine Daycare & Spa's owner Lisa has seen it all. Over the years she has shown dogs, trained dogs, and studied canine nutrition. At Elite Canine Daycare & Spa, she and her staff of stylists and trainers implement their diverse knowledge of dogs, pampering canines with grooming services and presiding over cage-free daycare facilities. Groomers tend to furry clientele in a calming environment outfitted with flameless candles and canine furniture designed to withstand frantic tail wagging. Pups relax with foamy bubble baths and vanilla blueberry facials or show off new breed-specific haircuts. Canine birthday parties give dogs a reason to cut loose seven times each year, devouring doggie birthday cakes and looking forward to doggie retirement.
Zoom Room’s dog training facilities have one cardinal rule: owners must be present during class. This is because humans need just as much training as their canine companions when building confidence and communication, and it’s important that owners learn the best positive-reinforcement techniques from the knowledgeable staff. Group classes cover topics ranging from general obedience and agility training to more specific needs such as overcoming shyness. Other classes include Urban Herding, where dogs herd exercise balls into soccer goals indoors, Scent Work, where dogs learn to sniff out missing car keys or the TV remote, and Pup-lates, which is geared toward overweight or senior dogs, or those recovering from an injury.
In fact, improving canine social skills is one of Zoom Room’s missions, as evidenced by the regularly hosted fundraiser events and Doggy Disco parties, which give dogs a chance to meet other dogs and expand away from their inner circle of fire hydrants. This combination of training and fun, in addition to the facility’s selection of solution-oriented training gear, natural dog treats, and functional dog accessories, has garnered an array of local and national press.
It's fair to say that the desire to work with animals is in Jennifer-Lee Wilson's blood. She started young, watching her father tend to animals and their owners in the family's pet store. Then in 1998, she opened A Lucky Dog. Here, she leads obedience training classes that inspire owners to encourage their pets to sit, come, and stay with rewards such as treats and toys. As a certified dog trainer and animal behaviorist, she's found that positive reinforcement is the best way to teach a dog proper behavior— whether he's in a park full of rambunctious puppies or at a Texas hold 'em tournament and has just gone all in.
Jennifer and her dog-loving staff also provide doggie day care and handle pet sitting duties. Unlike typical boarding facilities, they actually come out to pet owners' homes to feed and walk their four-legged charges. They go this extra mile, both figuratively and literally, so that the animals can stay in familiar, stress-free surroundings.
Since 1978, Nighthorse Farm has invited guests to its paradise of pastureland at Brookside Equestrian Park, where they can learn horseback-riding skills amid 20 acres filled with six outdoor arenas, multiple barns, and open fields. As a lifelong rider and US representative to the 1982 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships, Debbie Stone has been the head trainer at Nighthorse since 1998 and oversees a staff of horse whisperers who teach lessons in the riding disciplines of hunter, jumper, and equitation. Whether they are beginners or have their sights set on showing at the local, state, and regional level, students are encouraged to develop teamwork with the horse that comes in handy when avoiding the highway police during high-speed chases.
