Tongue wagging, a playful pooch scampers around Wonder Dog Ranch's rubber-floored play area while others lounge on couches and gnaw on toy bones. Nearby, a staff member looks on, making sure the pups don't engage in any bad behavior, such as fighting or off-track betting.
The supervision is more of a precaution than anything because Wonder Dog Ranch requires dogs to pass a complimentary temperament test before they're allowed to frolic with the others during daycare or stay overnight in the cage-free boarding facilities. For those who pass the test with flying colors or grease the right palms with their slobber, playground equipment, faux grass, and a pint-sized bed await.
The staff ensures that its wards stay safe with more than just a temperament test—they also use eco-friendly cleaners and have a local vet come out periodically to inspect the premises. A portion of the fee collected for each dog's stay is donated to a local pet-friendly charitable organization, such as the Foothill Unity Center Pet Food bank.
The many branches of Pets R Us Veterinary Hospitals are each filled with seasoned groups of vets and vet technicians. At Chapman Veterinary Hospital, for example, Dr. Samuel Azab puts to use more than ten years of experience and a special interest in surgery, internal medicine, and avian treatment. At any of the locations, pets can be treated for a variety of health concerns ranging from flea infestations to endocrine diseases. The hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art medical devices, and some of them can conduct digital radiography, vaccinations, ultrasounds, and orthopedic surgery. Some facilities also provide boarding and grooming for non-medical concerns.
Tearing into a perfectly charred, sauce-covered rack of ribs satisfies the stomach, and the knowledge that you made them yourself feeds the soul. Students can do just that in classes held by the nonprofit organization California BBQ Association, which shares all of its proceeds with children’s charities throughout the state. The course catalogue includes beginner and advanced classes led by pit masters such as Ric Gilbert, an inductee to the association’s hall of fame, and Harry Soo, a contestant from the first season of TLC’s BBQ Pitmasters. Fees cover the equipment and food needed to prepare dishes, freeing students from having to stop at a barbecue-sauce river and fill up some water bottles on their way to class.
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.
