The experienced instructors at Haverhill Farms forge respectful bonds between humans and horses while cultivating basic riding skills. Situated on 35 acres of windswept meadows and serene forests, Haverhill Farms welcomes riders of all skill levels for year-round use of its facilities. Two large outdoor and two indoor rings set the stage for professional instruction, which ranges from beginning horsemanship lessons to advanced jumping and dressage. The indoor rings feature heated observation rooms, giving onlookers a great vantage point from which to observe teachers demonstrating how to control the steed's stride and speed. Students also learn proper horse care, as well as how to use tongue clicks to signal sightings of undercover donkeys in search of work.
Wiggle Butts is a pet service that includes daily walks, feeding, giving medications, drop ins, exercise, mail retrieval, and plant watering. We do not exclude any breed or temperament. We can care for cats, dogs, fish, some reptiles, small mammals, and birds. Two locations make us convenient for most Oakland and Wayne Co.
Just because you don't see any cages at Barks N Recreation doesn't mean pooches run amuck at doggie day camp. On the contrary, the staff keeps a watchful eye on pets but allows them to run free among friends. Squabbles are rare, since only good-tempered dogs are allowed, and pups are divided by size and demeanor. The day camp even offers a pet taxi that will pick up pooches within a 10-mile radius for daycare or grooming.
It's not quite enough for animal-lover Lindsay Archer to spend time with pets all day long at her day job as a veterinary technician. So she opens her home to pets whose owners need a few days away. Beyond taking in dogs and cats, she also watches other domestic animals, such as guinea pigs.
Molly's Pet Grooming's staff keeps dogs, cats, rabbits, and birds looking their best. The groomers use all-natural products during their services, which include everything from flea baths to toenail painting. They also reward furry friends with the occasional all-natural treat.
Though dogs and humans have very different grooming needs, many dog salons still use tools such as bath tubs and barber shears to clean up pups. The team at Noble Dog Shoppe and Spa, however, cater to the needs of their canine clients by using easy walk-in baths, fur-specific shampoos, and cage-free suites for dogs awaiting their treatments. The trained staff specializes in breed-specific cuts, but can also customize a dog’s look, creating close-cropped looks that shed less or mohawks that add a punk-rock aesthetic to family greeting-card photos. Whether staff are merely clipping nails or completing a full grooming with haircut, bath, and hydro-massage, dogs are pampered with personalized attention. Outside the grooming area, the staff has curated a selection of dog clothes, all-natural treats, and stuffing-free toys that keep pets occupied after grooming sessions.
