Legend Hall Arabians owner Jason Chiles and his wife, Michelle, balance each other out both at home and on the range. A trainer and showing champion of arabian and half-arabian horses for 16 years, Jason thrives on his experience, whereas Michelle—a novice rider—keeps the farm’s atmosphere easygoing, fun, and inviting to riders of all levels. At the Chiles’ scenic 50-acre farm, arabian horses canter around the grounds as students learn western, hunt, saddle-seat, and driving disciplines from Jason in 60-minute lessons held near the 29-stall training barn, where dressage horses get ready for shows by chewing on bales of dental floss.
PetSolutions is an online pet store built on strong principles of value & customer service we have believed in since beginning in the pet industry back in 1950. Our family owned business is large enough to provide incredibly fast shipping & great prices, yet small enough to give a personal touch to your shopping experience.
Owned and operated by three brothers, Horton's Hoagies doles out toasty subs and classic sandwiches for lunch and dinner every day of the week. Prime-rib creations earn first billing on the menu, filling the real estate between fresh bread with rare, well-done, or spicy cuts of meat. Customers highly recommend the prime-rib cheesesteak. Soups, such as broccoli cheese, and chili round out specialty sandwiches alongside salads, chips, and cookies. Horton's also assembles catering trays, which pack enough handheld food to feed large parties or fuel the food-fight portion of jury deliberations.
Pet Nation Lodge helps furry friends trade the rush of daily life for the leisure of luxury lodges, chef-selected meals, and social play areas. Following a two-hour consultation for every new client, rambunctious hounds climb and slide on an indoor faux-grass field, and felines use a separate, soundproof room to catch naps or test out impersonations of their owners. Overnight guests snuggle on raised beds and quilts as webcam surveillance oversees canine naps. After staffers burn doggie calories on five daily walks, chef selections refuel man's best friend with cuts of beef, chicken, liver, and salmon. Skilled groomers also free filthy hounds with a HydroSurge bath, dislodging dirt picked up on backyard romps and Forever stamps collected while chasing the mailman.
A fountain bubbles in the center of the overnight area, the first sign that Pet City Resort & Spa is no ordinary dog-boarding facility. The resort is made up like a small town, complete with streetlights, a park-like play area, and a trio of old men sitting in lawn chairs and swapping stories about the good ol' days. An outdoor yard provides more room to run around on sunny days. Overnight guests bunk down alone or with their furry siblings—even cats and dogs can share the same space. Dog owners look in on the webcams so they can feel like part of the action or make sure their pups don't get too uppity after the groomers improve their looks.
Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa founder Ray Schneider believes in pampering pets and providing them with the care they deserve. As he told Dan Monk of the Business Courier, "It’s a relationship that’s very hard to explain. When you have a dog, you can understand it.” The Blue Ash resident and entrepreneur created the sprawling, 25,000-square-foot pet hotel—and opened its second and third facilities located in Mason and Boston—because he realizes the lengths to which people will go to care for their furry friends.
Since opening in Cincinnati in 2008, Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa and it's two other facilities in Mason and Boston, have been on a mission to provide five-star service to its four-legged friends. Swathed in upscale atmosphere, the spa is outfitted with all the comforts of home and more; after touring the facilities, Jeff Elkus of David's Voice said, "I wish the last resort I visited had half the amenities of Red Dog." Dogs can stay in private, themed boarding suites with flat-screen TVs and owner-monitored webcams. They exercise and socialize in climate- and airflow-controlled play areas, romp in a three-acre dog park, and don buoyancy vests to soothe achy joints in the heated aquatic center. The hotel also has an air filtration system that cleans air six times per hour. They offer multilevel lodging for cats, as well as canine grooming and training services. Schneider hired and trained a staff for 24-hour supervision and care.
