Co-founded by a certified master dog trainer, Ufuria provides a plethora of holistic-minded petcare services to keep owners' and canines' minds at peace. Furry friends can frolic in over 9,000 square feet of facility peppered with modern equipment and staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A fur-cleansing bath rids shaggy coats of dander and produces an envy-inducing sheen, and an introductory evaluation determines whether your polished pet is suitable for a group play environment. Your dog's five days of fun each start off with an energy-releasing walk. Then a two-hour nap session gives four-legged children ample time to recharge their batteries for an afternoon of daycare activities and group play. For the safety of all dogs, canines over eight months old must be spayed or neutered to participate in doggie daycare. Private play, walks/runs, five 30-minute training sessions, and alternative activities are available for pups who are not neutered or spayed or who did not pass the group play evaluation.
Founded in 2007 by certified master dog trainer Jaime Van Wye, Zoom Room fosters relationships between dogs and their owners through obedience and agility classes. Obstacles such as hurdles, hoops, and ramps populate the interactive indoor facility, helping energetic pups burn off steam, gain focus, and get in shape for roles summer stock productions of Homeward Bound. In addition to basic obedience courses, specialty classes for shy or overly rambunctious dogs build confidence through positive reinforcement and a controlled class environment. Dogs seeking less structured outings often romp through half-hour blocks of private gym time, working through the agility course at their own pace.
Zoom Room?s dog training facilities have one cardinal rule: owners must be present during class. This is because humans need just as much training as their canine companions when building confidence and communication, and it?s important that owners learn the best positive-reinforcement techniques from the knowledgeable staff. Group classes cover topics ranging from general obedience and agility training to more specific needs such as overcoming shyness. Other classes include Urban Herding, where dogs herd exercise balls into soccer goals indoors, Scent Work, where dogs learn to sniff out missing car keys or the TV remote, and Pup-lates, which is geared toward overweight or senior dogs, or those recovering from an injury.
In fact, improving canine social skills is one of Zoom Room?s missions, as evidenced by the regularly hosted fundraiser events and Doggy Disco parties, which give dogs a chance to meet other dogs and expand away from their inner circle of fire hydrants. This combination of training and fun, in addition to the facility?s selection of solution-oriented training gear, natural dog treats, and functional dog accessories, has garnered an array of local and national press.

The many branches of Pets R Us Veterinary Hospitals are each filled with seasoned groups of vets and vet technicians. At Chapman Veterinary Hospital, for example, Dr. Samuel Azab puts to use more than ten years of experience and a special interest in surgery, internal medicine, and avian treatment. At any of the locations, pets can be treated for a variety of health concerns ranging from flea infestations to endocrine diseases. The hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art medical devices, and some of them can conduct digital radiography, vaccinations, ultrasounds, and orthopedic surgery. Some facilities also provide boarding and grooming for non-medical concerns.
Atlas Pet Hospital wants to keep all of the pets in the neighborhood as healthy as possible. That?s why this full-service hospital focuses on preventative care such as routine checkups and vaccinations. By coming in for routine care before they get sick, pets can live longer, more fulfilling lives. However, when pets don't feel their best, the hospital staff are expertly trained to handle a variety of conditions ranging from broken bones to cavities. Onsite x-rays and surgical procedures allow families to keep their pets in a comfortable environment while they undergo treatment, while overnight boarding gives them a chance to get away from the humans and converse in their native languages.
