At St. Mary's Animal Clinic, veterinarians Drs. Joshua Fender and Tom Allen join their dedicated support staff in ensuring the health of furry family members. Dr. Allen's specialty in veterinary medicine pairs with Dr. Fender's focus on small-animal surgery, enabling a comprehensive list of treatments for dogs and cats. The duo examines eyes and teeth, vaccinates against disease, spays and neuters, and tracks health issues through blood work at in-house facilities and University of Arizona veterinary-diagnostics laboratories. Grooming services are also available to keep coats healthy and let pets try out new hairdos they read about in Vogue.
Well after the sun has set over the Tortolita Mountains, the world-class trainers at Crazy Heart Ranch grab the reigns under the lights of a spacious outdoor arena. When they're not riding, the horse-loving crew lends their equine knowledge to students during monthly clinics, group lessons, private lessons, and kids' camps at the Northwest Tucson ranch, where they focus on creating meaningful relationships between riders and horses. All resident instructors and horses are experienced in reining, Western and English riding styles, ranch horse versatility, and team roping. Guests can saddle up and ride on the ranch's private trails, or complement lessons with a picnic under the region's native Mesquite trees, the same trees that money doesn't grow on.
At Anthony's K-9 Academy, head trainer Anthony Holcomb calls what he does "people training for dogs." This is because dogs read their owners' body language and energy for cues on how to react. An experienced trainer, Anthony has a range of training methods in his tool belt, which he adapts depending on the dog and its owner. He holds both group and private training sessions, and will even board dogs who are especially challenged or need to be convinced there is no monster living under their beds.
Dog trainers Danny and Silvia Wilson founded Bark Busters Home Dog Training in Australia in 1989, hoping to help reduce the number of dogs abandoned or euthanized because of their behavioral problems. More than two decades later, their business has grown to incorporate more than 400 franchises worldwide and has helped more than 750,000 dogs live harmoniously with their human counterparts. Rather than bribing pups with treats or applying punitive methods such as shock collars, Bark Busters’ therapists follow a training system based on canine communication and pack behavior. Dogs instinctively respond to these body-language and voice-control techniques, which therapists customize to suit each dog’s personality and each family’s needs and lifestyle. Over the course of the training, therapists curb behavioral problems such as aggression, barking, jumping, gambling, and digging while teaching canine owners the leadership skills they need to make their pets feel confident and secure.
Bark Busters’ confidence in their services allows them to offer a lifetime-support guarantee. If the dog's behavior does not improve, therapists will work with the client for one year or for the lifespan of the dog—depending on the service purchased—at no additional charge.
