Owner Lindsay Rapp surrounds herself with a staff of canine-whisperers who employ both human and animal psychology to help owners and pets live long, happy lives together. Agility training equips dogs for high-intensity play or auditions for basketball movies, and other courses tailored to families with children keep the peace by preparing dogs for a new baby or preparing families for a new dog.

Danny Salas believes that you can tell that dogs are happy, healthy, and well-behaved when they're tired. Conversely, if they bark excessively, chew up shoes, and dig holes, it's probably because they haven't received enough attention and exercise. That's why this marathon runner started Dogtastic Walking & Running Services—to give bored, out-of-shape dogs a solid 30-minute workout.

After volunteering with a rescue shelter, Salas rehabilitated a neglected pitbull named Philadelphia creating a regimen of regular running and walking. Salas works alongside David Orozco, a trainer and groomer with 10 years of experience, including a stint at an exotic zoo. His American Staffordshire terrier has several UKC-show wins, appeared on television commercials, and is currently dating an heir to the Lassie fortune. When this duo isn't sprinting alongside tail-waggers, they clean up sullied yards. They also groom dogs.

Monika's aptitude for obedience training arose organically from her childhood love of dogs. She's been training pups since she was one herself, so her grasp of canine psychology has flourished naturally throughout her life. At Smart K9, she doesn't just teach dogs how to "sit," "stay," and "unlock the door"; she fosters healthier, closer relationships between owners and dogs by teaching the former how to lead and the latter how to follow. Her dog-training sessions range from one-hour private lessons and two-week training programs to classes specifically designed for puppies.

The staff at The Holistic BodyLab works to maintain long-term health with natural, non-pharmaceutical treatments. Led by in-house medical director, Dr. Joseph Maides, and natural medicine doctor, Kevin Gill, they blend spa treatments, such as facials, with holistic treatments, such as massage, in order to revivify bodies both inside and out. This mix of modern medicine and age-old spa treatments aims to both soothe and heal, just like all those old lullabies about mockingbirds curing babies' tension headaches.
