The Mosquito Authority keeps skeeters at bay through services such as barrier sprays, misting systems, and special event sprays. During these treatments, exterminators apply an EPA-approved solution to exterior foliage including trees, shrubs, and magic beanstalks, which not only eradicates all current mosquitoes but also prevents new ones from stopping by for up to 21 days. While clearly harmful to mosquitoes, the solution is so focused that it won't cause harm to pets or children.
River Mountain Farm’s experienced equestrians saddle up to train students on a 100-acre facility that boasts five barns, eight large fields, three outdoor arenas, and a heated indoor arena with secure Polytrack footing. Obedient schoolmaster horses trot into daily lessons and fill the air with reassuring whinnies as students use provided equipment to prep and tack their chosen steeds. Once riders are secure in their saddles, instructors adjust lessons according to their skill level and foster clearer lines of communication with a brief tutorial in horse whispering.
At For Paws Unleashed, pets escape. The daycare center, pet hotel, and fur spa is nestled in 10 acres of hills beneath open skies. Daycare attendants romp with their four-legged wards in fenced stretches of grass during outdoor play sessions. An onsite swimming pool beckons dogs to cool off in its clear waters, and yellow tunnels let them experience every animal's dream of living inside the sun. For nights away from home, each dog sinks into a personal Simmons Beauty Rest mattress, soothed by his or her own flat-screen TV.
For Paws Unleashed pampers dogs with services fit for humans. Canine stylists brush teeth and even color claws with nail polish. They run a taxi service to shuttle dogs to important barking sessions, and host birthday parties for them and their best friends, be they human or canine.
At Punchestown Stable, skilled instructors equip equestrians of all ability levels with show-quality horses, saddles, and new skills. Sarah Reilly, the owner of the stable, calls upon prestigious riding and training experience as she bestows riders as young as 5 with the knowledge, techniques, and carrot-flavored sugar cubes necessary to curry a stallion's favor. Budding cowboys and cowgirls must wear pants and closed-toe shoes, but the stable stocks all other key riding equipment. By tailoring instruction to each rider’s experience and interests, Sarah ensures that no one bored by mythology ends up riding a centaur.
