Thorough ear cleanings ($10) and teeth brushings ($10) keep pups in shipshape hygienic fashion and prepare pooches for cuddling or job interviews.
Under the umbrella of Pet Medical Centers, nine Miami-Dade and Broward-area veterinary hospitals provide sophisticated healthcare for furry, feathered, and scaly family members. The hospitals’ specialty services include nonanesthetic dental care, ultrasounds, radiology, and endoscopies. All locations boast surgical operating rooms equipped with windows and cameras to give owners peace of mind, and many of the clinics are equipped with lasers for blade-free incisions. Besides emergency care, the doctors and technicians—some of whom have appeared as specialists on Univision and Animal Planet—perform general wellness examinations and informative nutritional consultations.
Although medical care provides what pets need, boarding services treat pets to what they want. Most locations double as cat and dog hotels, but only one deserves the title of pet resort—at Coral Springs Pet Resort and Medical Center, animals enjoy a climate-controlled dog park with a pool, baths with massaging jets, and expansive canine suites with window views.

The certified dog trainers at Canine Dimensions have dog obedience down to a science. They don't use clickers or painful collars; instead, they use familiar objects and teach dogs inside their owners' homes in obedience rehabilitations for any dog older than 7 weeks old. By working on the dog's home turf, they keep them comfortable while teaching them not to pull on the leash, growl at guests, or use slang words their owners don’t understand. For families uninterested in at-home training, Canine Dimensions offers 10-day board and train programs and overnight boarding inside the trainer’s home, where they exercise, play, and learn within a home environment.
