Tish believes in taking her work home with her. When she?s not running Walk 'n' Roll Pet Sitting, she stays busy volunteering at pet foster centers, coordinating the LA Chapter of the National Canine Cancer Foundation, and tending to her own three rescue dogs: a labrador named Maddie, an English bulldog named Stella, and a pug named DaVinci. Her love and knowledge of pets also applies to Walk 'n' Roll Pet Sitting?s staff. She handpicks everyone on her team, each a pet owner who passed a thorough background check and completed extensive training. With their daycare, cage-free boarding, and in-home pet-sitting services, the staff treats each pooch as part of their family by recognizing individual personality traits and calling them on Thanksgiving to argue. They also exercise canines during private dog walks and offer additional services such as baths, vet visits, and administering medications.

Founded in 2007 by certified master dog trainer Jaime Van Wye, Zoom Room fosters relationships between dogs and their owners through obedience and agility classes. Obstacles such as hurdles, hoops, and ramps populate the interactive indoor facility, helping energetic pups burn off steam, gain focus, and get in shape for roles summer stock productions of Homeward Bound. In addition to basic obedience courses, specialty classes for shy or overly rambunctious dogs build confidence through positive reinforcement and a controlled class environment. Dogs seeking less structured outings often romp through half-hour blocks of private gym time, working through the agility course at their own pace.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.

Fully bonded, licensed, and insured, Rover Kennels can arrange for walks, runs, or hikes to tire out pups, rendering them less likely to issue unsolicited cooking advice.
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.
Just as human doctors do with their patients, Dr. Shane and her associates explore all avenues of medical treatment for nurturing their animal patients' health. Her skills in small animal treatments practiced at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine equip her to brandish modern techniques and systems for spaying, soft tissue surgery, and dentistry. Additionally, through the Chi Institute in Gainesville, Florida, she learned the art of veterinary acupuncture and Chinese veterinary medicine, endowing her with herbal and alternative techniques for wellness and pet therapies. To ensure her furry patients receive the best care possible, she merges the two disciplines into a comprehensive treatment plan that keeps pets happy, healthy, and ready to take yoga classes with their owners.
