With 26 years of teaching experience, Angela Fowler at Mountain Dell Equestrian is skilled at providing riding instruction and coaching to budding bronco busters. Before hitting the trails, allow Fowler to select an appropriate steed to complement your experience and wardrobe selection, or bring along your own filly to ride. Saddle up your equine pal for an hour of trotting, cantering, and telepathic bantering in either the scenic outdoor or lighted indoor arena. Lessons include instruction on tacking and untacking the horse in appropriate festoonery, including a saddle, bit, bridle, and Velcro-bound top hat.

The trainers at Thank Dog! Bootcamp tap into dogs' energy and devotion to motivate humans to get into shape. Bootcamps cater to two-legged and four-legged participants at the same time. Instructors divide each 60-minute workout into 10-minute segments alternating between cardio, obedience training, and doggie downtime while humans perform strength-training drills. In addition to being a good form of exercise, the classes instill basic obedience-training techniques that can be used at home.
Dr. Jim Gill and the team of veterinary doctors and staff at Wilkinson Animal Hospital understand the bond between pets and their owners, working six days a week to prolong the life and health of these furry family members.

They extend their care past cats and dogs to more exotic creatures, including birds, rabbits, reptiles, small mammals, and sentient pet rocks. Cozy crates and an expansive yard coddle pets during boarding, daycare, and grooming services, and an in-house pharmacy doles out any necessary meds.
