Good Pup founder and owner Patty Homer, who touts 20 years' experience in dog training, gets tails wagging with personalized, private lessons for all breeds of canines. Pooches learn to master commands such as sit, down, come, heel, yodel, and stay, and owners learn techniques that ensure results can be re-created outside the vacuum of Good Pup's training facility. Each of the obedience-training sessions can be scheduled at the owner's convenience, providing dogs ample time between sessions to play tug of war, go for w-a-l-k-s, and upload home videos of their owners chasing squirrels in their sleep.

Despite the advent of the dog door and the decline of mercenary dogcatchers, pups can't be left to their own devices when it comes time for a walk. The staffers of MuttMamaKC LLC step in when owners are unavailable, sparing homes from unhappy accidents and pets from missed feedings. Not only does the team handle regularly scheduled services, but they can be called upon to fill in during such emergencies as attending a late meeting, running into car trouble, or forgetting where you live.

Tammie Howe insists that it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks. In fact, at Behave Dog Training, she's designed a class specifically for older dogs that need to break bad habits, such as jumping on people, pulling on the leash, or begging to stay up late to watch Dog Whisperer. With more than 10 years of working with families and their canine companions, she often works with owners who are at their wit's end with problem behavior and relishes how pleased they are when they learn how to effect changes in their pups.
The veterinarians and support staff at Falcon Valley Animal Hospital tend to a revolving cast of cats and dogs that comes through the doors. They love animals—all of them are pet owners except for Soot the cat, who is not responsible enough to own other cats.
Inside the hospital, patients will find an onsite pharmacy, boarding facilities, training classes, and, naturally, veterinary services. Veteran puppy trainer Dennis Bastian teaches rebellious pups to adhere to their best friends’ commands. Comprehensive exams for new puppies and kittens get pets up-to-date on vaccinations and include heartworm, flea, and tick prevention as well as free food samples. Pet microchipping—a procedure in which a microchip the size of a grain of rice is placed under a pet’s skin—is also available to help locate pets in the event that they get lost or want to cheat in a game of hide-and-seek.
