What’s brown and invariably ends up on the bottom of your shoe? The answer to that riddle is The Pooper Scoopers’ main expertise: dog poop. Their trained technicians arrive at homes or commercial businesses to clear waste from yards, leaving areas less hazardous to walk through or play in. They tackle about 30,000 yards each year, and even venture inside homes to clean cats’ litter boxes.
Hi, I'm Joi, The Naperville Pet Nanny. I've been keeping just one or two guest dogs cage free over night in my Naperville home for over 30 years now. We have acres of walking trails near downtown Naperville. I was college trained in dog care and certified in dog grooming. Don't send your dog to jail while your away.
Founded in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1996 by pet owners who were sick of bothering neighbors to care for their furry charges when they were busy or away, Out-U-Go! keeps beloved animals happy when their owners are unavailable. Certified members of Pet Sitter International, Out-U-Go’s fully licensed and bonded pet professionals undergo a rigorous screening process, putting in time at the company's Dog Walk University to learn how to deal with willful pets, calmly handle emergencies, and internalize animals’ fear of vacuums. New customers start off with a free meet and greet, with sitters coming to the house to meet dogs, cats, and smaller critters, and discuss special needs and routines. Services range from daily walks to full-time housesitting and pet taxi rides to groomers, vets, and kennels.
Just like at the finest dining establishments, the dog meals at Wiggle Waggles are made fresh to order. Owners beg for scraps as their pups push their noses into healthy servings of muttloaf and turkey quiche, made with organic ingredients and without added salt or sugar. For dessert, dogs sate themselves with one of the bakery's hand-crafted treats, which are also organic and preservative free, and come in flavors such as reduced-fat cheese, turkey bacon, and peanut butter. They enjoy their treats perched at one of the lime-green cubes that bring pooches up to table level, or take them home to enjoy in front of the television. The eatery also caters puppy birthday parties complete with a custom organic cake, and provides pet-care services such as dog walking and sitting.
AnimalSense began in 1999 with a set mission to help dog owners live peacefully with their dogs, by using training methods backed by the steady hand of science. Classes only ever teach dog-friendly methods of positive reinforcement, a pleasant, pain-free experience for dog and owner alike. Class sizes are limited to allow for one-on-one instruction. The variety of classes available makes enrollment in the program sensible for beginners and previously trained dogs alike. Classes include options for dogs of mostly all temperaments, from a session for shy dogs, to Intro to Agility for fledgling performance hounds. This Groupon is not valid for special aggression classes such as Doggone Issues.
More than a decade ago, K9 Fit Club founder Tricia Montgomery admitted it to herself: She and her dog were both overweight. They set out to lose weight together, and after dropping more than 130 pounds, Montgomery created K9 Fit Club to share her success with others. The curriculum is focused on joint dog-and-owner workouts—the core classes include games of fetch, obstacle courses, and cardio exercises, and others cover tai chi and dancing. The success of Montgomery's program has captured the attention of The Biggest Loser producer David Broome, who will bring Montgomery's program to reality TV in 2014.
