The Laundered Mutt & Training Center turns rambunctious pooches into well-behaved canines through training sessions that range from basic puppy obedience to advanced service and therapy dog training. Whether she's teaching puppy socialization, practicing new tricks with older dogs, or leading AKC Canine Good Citizen testing, trainer Cat Z. infuses sessions with positive behavior methods honed over a decade-plus career. Pups can study up on their new skills during private or group lessons, or engaging in more intensive training during the center's three-week board and train program.
In addition to expert training sessions, pooches can also upgrade their looks in the center's grooming area. There, dog owners lovingly suds up their pups at back-friendly, waist-high washing stations, or turn them over to groomers for a full service wash that includes nail clipping, blueberry facial wash, and a spritz of cologne. In addition to basic fur maintenance, groomers are also trained to deliver custom, breed-specific cuts.

El Camino Ranch has cared for a growing family of Arabian horses since 1983, when it was founded with a mission to help people connect with the intelligent creatures. The ranch itself traces its origins back even further—to the early 1950s, when Bill and LaVesta Locklin started a farm and began to grow oranges and tomatoes against the scenic backdrop of the San Bernardino Mountain range.
Today, LaVesta’s son, Scott, and her granddaughter, Vandi, continue to look after the facilities, showering their horses with affection and treating them to a healthy daily schedule of riding with guests, participating in shows, and munching on fresh treats from the orange grove. During lessons, the trainers guide students through riding techniques and teach them the basics of equine grooming, tacking, and health care. They also organize a special series of “Pony Pal” lessons for children as young as 3, saving the horses the indignity of galloping around with training wheels glued to their haunches.
