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.
With up to 1,100 square feet of outdoor space, private suites, and splash 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.
All locations are open 24/7 and offer more than 10,000 square feet of indoor playrooms where pups romp around. Spacious boarding rooms with flat screen TVs await canines spending the night while two-level kitty condos keep cats entertained with built-in exotic fish tanks. And for top dogs, Wags offers Ultra suites outfitted with raised Queen beds and in-room aromatherapy dispensed by employees. Animals can even indulge in the hotel's spa, which offers such grooming services as oatmeal shampoos and pet tattoos.
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.
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.
Elsie Lodde grew up on a farm surrounded by her own menagerie. She bottle-fed her first homeless kittens and bunnies at a young age and began bringing home and caring for strays in her free time as an adult. She started working for a national rescue group but grew unhappy with the group's restrictions and decided to rescue dogs on her own. Elsie founded Recycled Pets Norcal to give homeless animals a chance they might not otherwise get in shelters. The entire staff consists of volunteers, who foster many animals in their own homes before finding adoptive families for them in Northern California, vowing to follow up with each adoption to ensure the animals don't return to shelters. The organization also spays or neuters homeless animals and assists dogs' adoptive families with training, food, and transportation to veterinary appointments.
Lucky Puppy owner Brittany Colucci's goal is to connect with every human and loveable pooch that saunters in the door. She can cater to dogs of all sizes with grooming services that range from a swift shampoo and brush through to comprehensive canine mane styling. It's also worth nothing that Lucky Puppy's services are performed in an open environment, without the unnecessary restriction of cages, muzzles, and oversize hamster wheels.
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.
