Dogs' grooming needs are as individualized as people's and vary greatly based on breed, size, and fur length. The certified groomers at Jessica's Dog Grooming take each dog's needs into account, custom tailoring bathing and grooming packages. The staff trims nails and cleans teeth, removes mats from long fur, performs deshedding treatments for short-haired canines, and restores sheen to dogs' coats with shampoo and conditioner. A bow or bandanna put the finishing touches on a pooch's day at the salon.
STEP Preschool's teachers don't just shape kids cognitively—they also develop them physically. That's because the state-licensed preschool employs multitalented staffers who lead clinics in soccer, T-ball, gymnastics, and other sports to help refine the motor skills and kinesthetic learning of children aged 2–5. Physical education boasts as integral a role in the curriculum as reading and writing, math, technology, and other academic areas that prepare kids for kindergarten and a tenure-track professorship.

During each 30-minute service, Aamco of East Northport's certified technicians drain old, exhausted fluids, replace them with up to 5 quarts of new oil, and install a filter to keep engines contaminant- and guilt-free. After lubricating grease fittings, the staff embarks on a 36-point ProtectCheck inspection, a bumper-to-bumper examination that assesses the health of the vehicle's most vital components and organ systems. Each oil change ends with a car wash, which scrubs away surface dirt and grime to reveal a shiny automotive exterior.
