Happy Valley Veterinary Hospital’s licensed staff provides medical care for pets at its full-service facility. The hospital can address pet ailments of all stripes, with services such as internal medicine, surgery, acupuncture, and laser therapy. It also offers services to help clients keep pets happy and healthy at home, including grooming and behavior counseling to address pets’ unwanted behaviors such as separation anxiety and putting the milk back in the fridge empty.
Zoom Room?s dog training facilities have one cardinal rule: owners must be present during class. This is because humans need just as much training as their canine companions when building confidence and communication, and it?s important that owners learn the best positive-reinforcement techniques from the knowledgeable staff. Group classes cover topics ranging from general obedience and agility training to more specific needs such as overcoming shyness. Other classes include Urban Herding, where dogs herd exercise balls into soccer goals indoors, Scent Work, where dogs learn to sniff out missing car keys or the TV remote, and Pup-lates, which is geared toward overweight or senior dogs, or those recovering from an injury.
In fact, improving canine social skills is one of Zoom Room?s missions, as evidenced by the regularly hosted fundraiser events and Doggy Disco parties, which give dogs a chance to meet other dogs and expand away from their inner circle of fire hydrants. This combination of training and fun, in addition to the facility?s selection of solution-oriented training gear, natural dog treats, and functional dog accessories, has garnered an array of local and national press.

Club K-9 welcomes well-socialized and evaluated dogs into a clean and spacious environment. Dogs can enjoy an overnight stay in social boarding, or large and small canines can cavort in separate areas during daycare under the supervision of a trained professional. After a full day of play, tired-out pups return to their owners. The center also offers group and private training, as well as bathing with all-natural shampoos and conditioners.
