Using positive, reward-based training methods, Good CitiZen Dog Training’s canine behavioral specialists help train both pets and owners while nurturing healthy dog-man relationships. In addition to private training sessions that address specific behavioral issues, the Good CitiZen trainers host group classes to train dogs alongside their peers. Sessions include basic puppy training and Growly class, which tackles aggressive behavior and teaches owners to identify canine body language. Dog trainers also monitor doggy daycare to safely socialize dogs while owners are away and ensure each pup receives enough play, exercise, rest, and food, plus up-to-date editions of squeaky newspapers.
Riding is a wonderful sport to build poise, confidence, posture and a great attitude about the rest of the world. Our specialty is equitation training for the rider. We have trained many champion junior and amateur riders, some of whom have gone on to be professionals themselves.
Dressing your puppy in a raincoat or tying its bootlaces to keep out December puddles won’t matter a lick if that critter’s tum isn’t filled with grade-A chow. Today’s side deal will treat your furry child’s appetite in ways that sneaking leftover filet mignon into its kibble never could. West Seattle Dawg will prepare a seven-course feast for your pooch, including home-baked treats from its bakery, and ship it to you for $10. Whatever dietary needs a canine can have, WSD will cater to them with a culinary flourish far more flourishy than hiding doggie pills in cheddar cheese.
In an interview with The New York Times, Rover.com’s CEO Aaron Easterly describes his business as a means of connecting "dog owners who need care for their animals to dog lovers willing to provide it for some extra cash.” Thus, his business serves as a friendly alternative to “lock[ing] their dog in cage for a week” at a kennel. Providing dogs with a real home or apartment to call home while their owners are away, Rover.com calls upon dog fanatics to showcase their walking, feeding, and ear-scratching skills by boarding or staying at the homes of local pooches.
With a network of more than 200,000 members across the country, Rover.com allows owners to peruse the online profiles of potential hosts and seek out a local caretaker based on reviews, personal preferences, and availability. Once connected with the pet-sitter, owners can schedule an optional meet-and-greet between hound and human to ensure a compatibility of personalities and rising signs. While on vacation, dog parents keep in contact with their four-legged friends and their sitters via Rover.com’s messaging service and photo updates. The company’s dedication to canine well-being extends to their Sit a Dog, Save a Life program, which grants the site’s sitters a chance to donate the entirety or a portion of their profits to a pet-related charity such as The Animal Rescue Site or the Coalition to Unchain Dogs.
Dr. Erica Anderson could have ended up anywhere. As a child, she followed her father, a botanist, across the world to places such as Thailand, Malaysia, Kenya, Japan. During these globetrotting days, Dr. Anderson discovered a passion for wildlife. She even spent time in South Africa studying animals and how they live. In the end, however, she decided a career as a wildlife veterinarian wasn't for her. Instead, she found that helping domesticated pets and their humans was a more fulfilling duty. So, she began working nightshifts as an emergency vet.
Fueled by an eclectic array of experiences and an undying compassion for animals, Dr. Anderson eventually opened her own practice, Jet City Animal Clinic. Here, Dr. Anderson checks up on cats and dogs during annual exams, and, if necessary, performs surgical procedures. She also works alongside a whole team of talented individuals, including technicians, body workers, and behaviorists.
Together, this team creates a warm and friendly space for owners and their pets. A calming, amicable vibe surfaces in the earth toned walls and the paintings of pets speckled throughout the office. Much of the decor comes from reclaimed materials, highlighting the staff's commitment to eco-friendly business practices. They also keep electronic records so they don't have to use as much paper or shave each dog's medical record into its own fur.
