When Eric Simpson first adopted his dog Gunner, he probably couldn't have foreseen how the pup would change his life. After watching daycare improve Gunner's canine social skills, Eric knew he had to open his own daycare facility. Today he and his staff care for pups in three BarkZone locations. Rather than spend all day cooped up in a kennel or watching soap operas on TV, dogs enrolled in daycare play all day in the indoor facility with staff members and other pups. The staff also welcomes overnight guests, and owners can opt to have their dogs walked or groomed during their stay.
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.
At Hound in Hand, lifelong animal lovers and licensed pet-care professionals Aminta Cheadle and Brianna Abdalla care for pets while owners are away. Their services include quick daily walks and taxi service, ferrying pets to grooming appointments or to the vet. During longer absences, they care for animals with daytime or overnight pet-sitting services, walking dogs, cleaning litter boxes, and performing minor household upkeep.
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.
