Since 1981, Lorraine-Michaels Dance Centre's cast of passionate instructors has been helping students of all ages and abilities confidently express themselves through the art of dance. They lead these students through sashays, shimmies, and kicks with an exhaustive roster of dance and fitness classes that ranges from ballroom dancing to Hip Hop to kickboxing. During dance classes, they teach students to perform fundamental moves with confidence and musicality, covering a variety styles—including the Argentine tango, waltz, swing, and salsa—tending to bites from the dancing bug or disgruntled dance partners. They motivate students into performance shape in dance-inspired fitness classes such as Zumba, a regimen of easy-to-follow dance moves set to high-energy Latin tunes. In kickboxing sweat sessions, they inspire students to kick and punch their way toward their fitness goals, effectively toning muscles and scaring away the ghosts of gladiators past, while pole dancing classes build strength and teach students how to spin and climb.
As landscapers and dog owners, Ernest McCoy and Josh Cahill were well acquainted with the hardships of yard hygiene. They founded Poop Troops USA to free other pet enthusiasts from the unenticing task of waste removal. Their professional staff services both residential and commercial locales—such as apartment complexes, doggy-daycare centers, and dog-ruled planets—where they thoroughly comb the lawn for canine leavings. Their attention to detail ensures that they leave no grassy patch unexamined, whether or not the customer or pets are present. Before exiting the premises, they lock up and leave a note alerting clients of their visit.
Guests turn in for the night to recline in plush beds as they listen to soft music and enjoy meals delivered by attentive staff members. Rather than venturing out in the morning to shop and sightsee, however, these lodgers would rather spend some quality time with a chew toy. When away from home, pet guests at Pappy's Pet Lodge lie in the lap of luxury with amenities typically found in four-star human resorts. Orthopedic, chew-proof Kuranda pet beds cosset pups while they rest from the day's three walks and bounty of play time with similar-sized dogs. Experienced trainers also lead classes that help banish bad behaviors, from chewing on the couch and barking excessively to borrowing the car without asking.
The Boarding Bungalow lavishes affection on its furry tenants, allotting plenty of playtime and a minimum of six walks per day for boarding pups. Team members trained in pet first aid oversee the premises, allowing dogs to play in large and small groups, intervening if a canine is causing trouble or trying to organize a poker game. Dogs spend the night in private suites, whereas cats relax in cabanas featuring multiple ledges and smaller animals such as birds, hamsters, and rabbits are supervised in their cages. In addition to boarding and doggy daycare, the staff offers pet-spa services such as haircuts, baths, facial scrubs, and nail trimming.
A place to enhance the dog/human bond and show you, the owner/parent how to open the lines of communication with your dog.
We offer training that is fun for the human as well as the dog, in a venue that is both people and dog friendly. Your dog will love to train because training is actually play!
