The staff at Doggone-It Daycare wants customers' dogs to run wild—in a cage-free, climate-controlled environment, that is. Two indoor playgrounds host socialization sessions where pets play with one another, chew on toys, leap over obstacles, or concoct sure-fire plans to finally catch their own tail. Staff members walk each dog at least four times a day during daycare stays, and tuck them into comfortable beds during overnight visits.

Certified dog trainer and owner of Dogs Making Better Choices Alise Trees believes that dogs want to serve their masters, but “the key is establishing a respectful and trusting relationship between dog owners and their pets.” As part of canine training, she offers a Basic Manners course for dogs, during which owners teach their dogs commands that range from sit, down, and stay to skills that include loose leash walking. She also conducts private lessons to address individual issues.
Sisters Mary Shappee and Gert Shuckhart have been taming horses for most of their lives, beginning as children in 4-H club. While Gert manages Majic Stables' office and rare bookmark collection, Mary's passion for riding keeps her in the saddle, where she teaches private and group lessons that rein in riders as young as 5 years old. A 70'x198' indoor arena allows for nighttime and fair-weather rides, and the 100'x200' outdoor area is dotted with jumps and dressage letters for tricky choreography.
