Furry Friends Inc helps keep pets healthy and clean with nutritious pet foods, stimulating toys and accessories, and onsite washing facilities. Nutrition experts consult with pet owners to determine the optimal diet for their pets, and they can recommend a variety of nutrient-rich blends made with free-range lamb and vitamin E and devoid of chemical preservatives. In addition to carrying popular holistic pet-food brands, Furry Friends also sells its own brand of healthy pet food, made in the US without any byproducts or common allergens such as wheat, corn, and soy. Owners may also wash dogs or water their Chia Puppy at the self-wash facility or pamper pets with a blueberry facial or fur butter conditioner.
Bows adorn diminutive yorkshire terriers as they await their owners, and the curious dark eyes of golden retrievers wander with happy curiosity across The Pet Pawlor. There, groomers trim, shape, and fluff fur of all types. Equipped with toothbrushes, oatmeal baths, and nail files, they can leave pups as clean and sweet-smelling as the family in the last scene of a detergent commercial. A combined two decades of experience helps the crew maintain a stress-free environment for the animals.
With the exception of the Englewood location, all City Bark locations provide self-wash tubs for expedient DIY doggie dunking (about $10 for 30 minutes without shampoo, $11.50 with shampoo; rates vary slightly by location). These specially designed tubs ensure safe and easy dog baths, pleasant for person and pup alike. City Bark provides numerous accoutrements to make the slather sessions go swimmingly, including waterproof aprons, a variety of doggie shampoos, towels, and dryers for preventing post-bath shake-spray. After donning the apron, place your pal in a waist-high tub, specially designed for safe and simple bath time that beats crouching on the tiles of a home lavatory while your dog writhes and splashes, ruining freshly acquired lavender soap angels and terrifying the neighbors with plaintive howling.

When it came to her daughter Kayla’s equestrian education, Patty Savage Wooters entrusted the task to the most qualified candidate: herself. Kayla eventually became a two-time World Champion at the Kentucky State Fair and today, both Patty and Kayla channel their expertise into Longview Stables and Riding Academy. Private and group lessons accommodate first timers and horse-show veterans alike in the indoor and outdoor arenas, where instructors expound on fundamentals and bond riders and steeds via improved communication instead of trust falls.
At summer camp, counselors shepherd kids of all ages through daily rides and the basics of horse care, as well as horse-themed crafts. Birthday parties afford opportunities for kids to mount a mini pony named Pottachelli, while the birthday kid bounces atop a fully-grown horse. Nearby, boarded horses enjoy the shelter of stalls or canter like recently animated garden statues around emerald corrals and pastures.
