Pacific Park Animal Hospital caters to pets' every need with a roster of health-care, boarding, and grooming services. Under the guidance of Drs. Lisa D. Mandelin and Bridget Holden, the animal-loving staff performs dozens of veterinary services in a facility equipped with a pharmacy, a surgery suite, and an x-ray machine. In addition to physical exams and vaccinations, dogs and cats can enjoy grooming and bathing services or spend the night in clean accommodations.
The experienced instructors at Leslie Thomson Training forge respectful bonds between humans and horses while cultivating basic riding and Western show skills in both parties. Across rollicking fields of grass, teachers demonstrate how to navigate trail patterns and control the steed's stride and speed. Students also learn proper stallion care, as well as how to use tongue clicks to signal sightings of the ice-cream truck.
At Orange County Animal Medical Center, Dr. Randall Bondurant and Dr. Erin Boileve treat four-legged pals to the type of veterinary care they would give their own pets. After running his own clinic in Atlanta for 23 years, Dr. Bondurant and his wife moved west and opened their own veterinary center. Dr. Boileve, a Chicago native and proud owner of three dogs, moved to California in 2011. At the center, the doctors and their staff provide a range of medical services, from routine shots and checkups to much-needed surgeries, for ailing dogs, cats, and pet rocks that got skipped too hard.
Everyone who works at A Small World Doggie Daycare shares one important trait: a great love for dogs. That said, they all work hard to ensure that every pup who comes to the doggy daycare receives the best all-around care, from structured activities to playtime with other dogs. Along with daytime care for dogs, A Small World also provides overnight boarding and formal training for all sizes of dogs.
Most spas don’t admit patrons who bark, growl, and prefer eating dinner on the floor. But at The Zuri Pet Spa, they only allow this breed of customer. Owner and seasoned groomer Jenn Harris delights in setting her sometimes-anxious canine clients at ease through grooming and spa services performed in private suites filled with soft music. From stylish, breed-specific haircuts to cleansing blueberry facials and pooch massages, she and an experienced bather soothe and beautify dogs worn out after weeks of rough-and-tumble play. They even decorate pups’ necks with a line of collars encrusted with Swarovski crystals, which make pets easier to identify or hide inside a chandelier shop.
