Since 1995, VIP PetCare has been operating community veterinary clinics to make preventive care accessible and affordable for all pet owners. The clinics rotate through 250 markets and provide heartworm tests, flea treatments, dewormers, and other vital care on a regular basis to keep pets healthy. Furry friends stay easily identifiable after microchipping services, and vaccination packages protect from maladies that range from rabies to kennel cough. Each clinic is overseen by a state-licensed vet to ensure the safety of each animal. VIP PetCare also partners with pet retail stores and animal shelters in each of their markets, and has donated more than $400,000 in supplies and materials to animal shelters and rescue groups over the last three and a half years.
For more than 30 years, the caring professionals at Pampered Paws Pet Salon have been sprucing up cats and dogs with baths, haircuts, and general grooming services. Staff members customize each cut according to the animal's breed, hair type, and lifestyle—whether that means de-kinking a toy poodle's curls, restoring luster to an irish setter's coat, or sculpting a hairstyle to complement a saint bernard's Sherlock Holmes's costume.
Obedience training for puppies and older dogs alike. We help dog owners to understand the psychology behind training and provide them with the tools needed to transform their overly-enthusiastic slightly mis-guided canine into a calm well behaved member of the pack.
Guided by the watchful eyes of master falconer Kate Marden, West Coast Falconry introduces avian enthusiasts to eagle owls, falcons, and hawks through an apprentice course, educational demonstrations, and aerial displays of predatory birds hunting. Various excursions give small groups of participants up-close interaction with the birds, enabling them to explore natural avian habitats and observe the predatory birds in flight, hunting, and while picking up their dry cleaning. Gloved game chasers can also try casting and calling owls, hawks, and falcons to and from their fists.
With a 10,000 square foot roof deck, private suites, and indoor pools, Wag Hotels would be a swanky destination for any human. But as much as they might want to—and as much press as they might have read about the hotels—bipeds aren't welcome to spend the night at either of the hotel's locations. Instead, cats and dogs rule the roost at these luxury pet resorts.
Both locations are open 24/7 and offer more than 5,000 square feet of playrooms where pups romp around. Spacious boarding rooms with flat screen TVs await canines spending the night while two-level kitty condos—designed by feline specialists at UC Davis—keep cats entertained with built-in exotic fish tanks. And for top dogs, Wags offers Golden Gate and Presidio suites, both outfitted with raised Cal King beds and in-room aromatherapy dispensed by employees or a tower of devious cats wearing a trench coat to look like an employee. Animals can even indulge in the hotel's spa, which offers such grooming services as oatmeal shampoos and puppy pedicures.
To ensure each four-legged guest's visit is comfortable, Wag's team employs the Wag Care 360 approach. This approach includes sanitizing the facility regularly and allowing owners to check in on their pets via the hotel's web cams. Wag also provides dog training courses and pet CPR classes.
ChaCha's Doggie Day Care keeps dogs frolicking most of the day before letting them pass out in private suites equipped with bedding, chew toys, and relaxing music. Encouraging canine exercise, the cage-free facility features climate-controlled indoor and outdoor play areas equipped with pools, hoses, snuggle blankets, balls, and hand-shaped seats large enough to make mastiffs imagine life as a chihuahua. Thanks to a 24-hour webcam system, owners can watch as their pooches play, eat, and sleep. ChaCha's Doggie Day Care adamantly adheres to rules and regulations in place to protect the safety and health of both workers and furry guests.
