It should be no big surprise that the veterinarians and staff at St. George Hunt Memorial Veterinary Hospital are animal lovers. What might surprise pet owners is that not only can they be sure their beloved four-legged friends are getting good medical care, but they can also seek nutritional and behavioral counseling for wayward dogs or cats . The hospital also offers grooming services that keep coats and skin shiny and healthy.
Barb's Bathe Your Pet provides a fully equipped cleaning facility to keep pups shining like show dogs. A troop of steel tubs stands ready to hold messy mutts, making entry easy with ramped access. Waterproof aprons protect faithful owners from getting splashed during the dog's after-bath boogie, perfected by Benji during his comeback stint as Fred Astaire's horse. Barb's Bathe Your Pet supplies all bathing accouterments, and its conscientious crew takes care of after-bath cleanup. Although merchandise is not included with this deal, Barb's also stocks a range of canine-friendly products such as toys, beds, and licensed sports apparel that keep man's best friend from becoming man's best passive-aggressive roommate.
Shaun Froshour's decade of canine search and rescue experience made him the go-to guy when dogs needed training. Friends and clients swarmed him with requests to work on their canines' behavior problems or watch their dogs overnight. Eventually, Shaun realized he could parlay his expertise and passion for pooches into a business and decided to open the Canine Retreat and Behavior Improvement Center. Known today as Paws-itively Healthy, the center has trained and hosted hundreds of hounds of all breeds.
Froshour and his managing partner, Jill Stouffer, chaperone tail-waggers as they laze, play, and plan book-club meetings at the canine retreat. Grooming services gussy up pups with de-shedding treatments, nail trimmings, and toothbrushings, or the experienced duo can pet-sit or walk dogs as owners travel. Froshour and Stouffer call upon years of experience during obedience training to teach dogs verbal commands and hand signals including sit, stay, and vogue.
Encompassing 50 acres of shady trees, streams, and fields, the Holiday House Pet Resort provides a welcoming, pastoral retreat for vacationing cats and dogs. Owners Dr. Laura Weis and Dr. Randy Weis, both veterinarians, live on site and spearhead the resort’s mission to keep pets healthy and happy through high levels of interaction and physical activity. Dogs staying at Holiday House enjoy taking part in nature walks, playtime, massages, and grooming, whereas cats on vacation enjoy private condos outfitted with areas for climbing, sleeping, and pondering string theory.
Dogs trot out of Spot's Spot and Spa stylishly well-groomed, well-rested, or well-fed, depending on their activities in the canine wellness haven. Trained groomers infuse coats with natural shampoos and conditioners before treating dogs to a facial scrub, a nail trim, and a breed-standard or custom cut, each precisely hand-scissored. Overnight stays keep canines in good company with cage-free accommodations, 24-hour supervision, and personal attention from playtime to medicine delivery. In the retail sections, owners peruse a vast array of dog food and treats, including freshly butchered meat (available only at Spot’s 2nd Spot) along with high-quality cat food from Science Diet and Acana. A full stock of doggy wellness aids ranges from vitamins and salves to padded e-collars that prevent dogs from noticing when their chums poke fun at their fashion choices.
