Free of crates and cages, boarded canines at Boss The Pet Connection can stroll about their climate-controlled rooms as experienced staff members freshen their water bowls, replenish bowls with healthy food, and jot down room service orders. Under the tutelage of owner Enrique Fernandez, who began his animal-training career at age 14, a skilled team of animal lovers grooms cats and dogs with haircuts and dental care, teaches basic obedience, and tends to injured pooches with hydrotherapy treatments. They can also snap pet portraits in a studio stocked with cloud backdrops, flower garlands, and architectural columns.
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.
When owners drop their pets off for boarding or grooming at Pets Playground, they do so comforted by the knowledge that they're leaving their furry friends with people who love animals as much as they do. As a grooming school, Pets Playground is staffed by both experienced groomers and enthusiastic animal lovers looking to start a career in the grooming industry. Its grooming services cover most breeds of cats and dogs, even canines 70 pounds and heavier, and its boarding services treat each pet to a cageless experience with ample time in an indoor play area to socialize and enjoy a leisurely round of hopscotch.
