At Lead-N-Succeed, Master Certified dog trainer Maria Ruvio improves communication lines between pooches and owners with hands-on behavioral modification and positive reinforcement. Working with all breeds, sizes, and ages, Maria molds pups into positive members of society, teaching them how to properly walk on a leash, how to deal with separation anxiety, and how to hail cabs without growling at others. Maria also offers coaching in verbal commands, and provides dog-walking services in half- and full-hour intervals.
The bright-blue awning hanging outside Queens Animal Health & Emergency makes it hard to miss; it's blend of Eastern and Western medical treatments make the clinic hard to forget. Its veterinarians are well versed in general-wellness care for their clients' four-legged friends and use acupuncture to manage a variety of chronic issues, such as arthritis, asthma, and the anxiety that stems from trying to bark in Morse code. With its boarding services, staff members care for pets while their owners are on vacation, and grooming sessions keep animals looking their best.
Dog On It Doggie Daycare & Boarding Not content to let dogs idly sit around and trade strategies for garnering extra treats, the pet-sitters at Dog On It Doggie Daycare & Boarding engage furry companions with a range of activities, including socialization. Pooches stretch their legs during three daily walks. During breaks from playtime, they relax on bunk beds, sofas, and window seats while watching a virtual fish tank and pet shows on a flat-screen television. Grooming sessions keep pets looking sleek during their stays, and the in-house chefs prepare freshly cooked meals, prefaced by a delectable amuse-bouche to get dogs’ juices flowing. For overnight accommodations, the staff provides roomy chambers appointed with plush bedding instead of keeping pups cooped up in crates.
Deep-cleansing facials. Relaxing massages. Feather hair extensions. These are just three of the treatments that await Luxury Pet Spa & Boutique's canine and feline visitors. The spa staff believes that pets deserve the same luxury afforded to their human counterparts, and this is reflected in everything from its hypoallergenic products, to its holistic pet food, to its decor: chocolate-colored walls, cushy armchairs, and the stained wood table Lassie used to write her memoirs. Chandeliers spill light across the treatment rooms, where groomers shampoo fur, trim nails, and cleanse ears. However, these are just the preliminary steps to an animal makeover. The groomers also style fur with the finesse of hairdressers and use airbrushes to paint fur with colorful accents.
