AnimalSense began in 1999 with a set mission to help dog owners live peacefully with their dogs, by using training methods backed by the steady hand of science. Classes only ever teach dog-friendly methods of positive reinforcement, a pleasant, pain-free experience for dog and owner alike. Class sizes are limited to allow for one-on-one instruction. The variety of classes available makes enrollment in the program sensible for beginners and previously trained dogs alike. Classes include options for dogs of mostly all temperaments, from a session for shy dogs, to Intro to Agility for fledgling performance hounds. This Groupon is not valid for special aggression classes such as Doggone Issues.
Pet Stuff's staff stacks aisles with everything needed to pamper and nourish furry friends. Many offerings are organic, and because the store's motto is "your pets are personal to us," staff members will read pet diaries from cover to cover before recommending purchases.
Merry Maids' hyperefficient duos of dusters clean more than 300,000 residences each month in North America. Unleashed on the interior wilderness of an unkempt abode, the Merry Maids' voracious vacuums hunt down and devour dust dodos, paper-scrap porcupines, and other clutter-causing prey. Then, armed with nuclear-powered sponges and scum-seeking lasers, the militant maids scour countertops and tile grout with the single-minded meticulousness of a pilot scraping Dubble Bubble off his plane's instrument panel. No floor, whether wood, linoleum, marble, granite, or lentil, is too much for these smiling scourers, who have seen and conquered it all before.
Judith Ripka Jewelry intertwines the rich glaze of gemstones with signature beading and rope twists of exclusively alloyed gold and sterling silver. Fingers searching for natural elegance can snuggle up into the ambrosia stack ring, a sterling-silver affair that decorates the pink crystal of an oval stone with double hearts of white sapphire, symbolizing that the heart is not only unbreakable, but has a backup if needed ($175). The linked silver heart charm bracelet with signature lobster claw coddles a canary crystal heart charm ($195), and the small eclipse earrings entice the ears and frame the face with the dark, rich tones of tastefully shaped black onyx stones ($200).
Lucky Brand bedecks bodies in an array of tattered and torn jeans, including hand-distressed premium denim, tops, and accessories. Each pair of jeans (starting at $79.50) is washed, treated, and distressed, resulting in strategically frayed hems, patched knees, and pockets full of gravel. Lavish lady legs with the Sweet N Straight, which have frayed denim and a straight style (starting at $79.50), or the low-rise Charlie flare, which widen at the leg opening for a '70s vibe and have enough room to conceal an ankle swollen from a partial break (starting at $99). The 221 Original Straight styles let menfolk garb their gams in a classic cowboy style (starting at $99), and the 121 Heritage Slim fits closely embrace extremities for a more tailored look (starting at $129).
