Phyllis P. Allen and Victoria Martin have mad shampooing and blow-drying skills. But they aren’t working their magic on human heads. Instead, the owners of Pet Paw's have set out to prove that dog washing doesn’t have to be a pain, welcoming pet owners into a spacious grooming studio stocked with everything they need to get Fido clean quickly, calmly, and without cash bribes.

Each deluxe doggie bathing station features a raised tub that dogs can easily scramble into via a special staircase, and gentle restraints keep each pooch in a stable position during the duration of the scrub-down. Customers can don aprons to protect outfits from sudsy splashes, created from three varieties of natural earthbath shampoo blended with ingredients such as aloe and tea tree oil to leave coats fragrant and shiny. After the last rinse, towels and special air-blowers dry off fur, as special perfumes replace that wet-dog smell with something more snout friendly. Treats reward each well-behaved customer and the staff will clean up all the mess left behind, freeing each chic pup to focus on more important tasks such as showing off at the dog park or attending modeling go-sees.

The pet specialists at Pet Paw's can also help busy or apprehensive pet owners by giving dogs professional grooming services upon request.

Clark Clouse's father, Tommie, worked with horses for more than 40 years while tending his own barn, so it was only natural that Clark too would excel at riding long after his father's retirement. Clark, with more than 20 years of experience training horses, has won more than 35 World Championship titles and was named 'young trainer of the year' in 2007. At Clouse Stables, he and Sheila Clouse board and train American saddlebreds, and they also offer lessons for riders of all experience levels. The riding instructor at the stables, Maryta Montgomery, has been successfully competing in the show ring since 1992. Montgomery received training from some of the best riding instructors in the Saddlebred industry, including instruction from Renee Biggins and Missy Hughes.The stables are situated on ten acres with an indoor arena an outside track.

All day long at Poochies Plus, four-legged friends, separated by size, frolic freely in cage-less indoor and outdoor play areas. Dogs new to the scene meet with a staff member for 20 minutes to discern play style as well as favorite foods. Then, they're shuffled into play lots where they can splash in kiddie pools, gnaw on chew toys, or chase balls tossed by animal-loving staff members. In addition, overnight guests enjoy bedding in their own sleep space so they don't disturb others when rehearsing dramatic soliloquies from Lassie.

Drawing on more than two decades of pet protection, Invisible Fence of Greater Louisville keeps beloved beasties safely inside yards and other outdoor spaces using modern technology and individualized training. Homeowners will receive in-home consultations to help determine the scope of their pet-protection needs, including installation specifics. Invisible Fence Brand systems boast surge protection and can be installed around property to section off forbidden areas, including pools and gardens, and cut through a variety of terrains such as wooded and underwater areas.

Once the pet-centric force fields are installed, Invisible Fence of Greater Louisville will provide individual, play-based training via its certified methods to teach curious pooches how to frolic about yards while avoiding the fences. The hands-on training sessions teach dogs to respond to the warning signals issued by their fancy new computer collars, which emit foreboding tones when curious pooches scamper too close to the fences. After the in-home consultations, professional installation, and pet training, carefree canines can take charge of their outdoor surroundings and remain safe without diminishing yards’ aesthetic beauty.
