The Animal Hospital of Polaris knows how important the human-animal bond is and works to keep those bonds strong. During daycare and boarding services, staffers provide pets with TLC. Owners can even check in on their pups throughout the day as the daycare and boarding facilities are equipped with webcams.
The animal hospital's veterinarians provide urgent, preventative, and surgical care including x-rays and wound repair for small pets. An on-site spa and grooming parlor ensures animals look as healthy on the outside as they are on the inside, and training services teach animals proper behavior, including sitting, staying, and keeping their pinkies out when sipping a cup of tea.
It might be hard to believe considering its vast array of products, but Sears, Roebuck and Co. began with one accessory: watches. In 1886, Richard W. Sears bought a box of unwanted watches from a jeweler, thinking he could turn a profit by selling them. He was correct and committed to the watch business by hiring Alvah C. Roebuck, an experienced watchmaker.
As time went on, though, their business expanded its umbrella far beyond what people wore on their wrists. Sears became known as the place to shop for almost any appliance, from sewing machines to those magical boxes that create water from nothing and clean your clothes.
Today, the stores stock clothing, accessories, electronics, kitchen equipment, tools for outdoor living, and home decor. This variety is sustained by Sears's proprietary brands—Kenmore, Craftsman, and DieHard, to name a few—and other national names that populate the shelves.
Animal Care Unlimited's grooming guru, Lynda, scrubs, snips, and styles canine hides with diligence and delicacy. Four-legged patrons are greeted with a gentle shampoo bath to neutralize the unsavory smells of late-night poker games, followed by a blow-dry and tress trim—including sanitary clip and paw-pad snip. The beast beautician then disinfects dog derrieres, purges and plucks cruddy ear canals, prunes pointy paws, and highlights cheekbones with an understated rouge. Fees vary depending on size and breed, but scrub downs start at $40 for wallet-sized woofers, with the average grooming around $48. Any remaining Groupon dollars can go toward a future pooch pamper. Pups must be prepped with rabies, distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations before their primp.
Acme Canine's team of pup-loving trainers, who has trained over 1,000 dogs, brings a combined 30+ years of experience to their sessions, gently and humanely improving human-pooch relationships with individualized training plans. During the in-home canine assessment, instructors observe dogs in their own environment, taking note of the distractions, triggers, and television theme songs most likely to prompt misbehavior. Dog-whisperers combine canine psychology, learning theory, and behavior modification to guide dog development, and customize individualized training plans to each family's needs.
While pooches are part of the family, unfortunately they can't always go along on the family vacation. My Dog's Spot makes up for what they may miss out on by giving them comfortable quarters to sleep, play, and eat in. They also get to socialize with other four-legged friends, catching up on the latest gossip around the proverbial hydrant. For pups that require only a short stay, half- and full-day doggie daycare are available as well.
