Dr. Simon and his staff provide a full range of health care services for pets, including wellness visits, nutritional counseling, vaccinations, surgeries, dental care, flea and tick control, and other routine care.
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.

Boarding services provide a venue to compose concertos for squeaky toys and coddle pets during their owners' vacations.
