Patty Schaller has always had psychic powers. Though she knows her field is obscure, and “[most people] think you’re nuts when you tell them,” that hasn’t deterred her from helping people and pets with psychic readings and other supernatural services. In addition to phone readings, she also offers in-home assessments, during which she can visit with the pet and communicate with them in person. Through her readings, she can provide insight into a pet’s behavior, feelings, and medical condition. Patty can also reach out to people and pets that have passed into the spirit world, which can help provide families with peace of mind. Patty offers her services for private clients, but also reaches out to help animal rescue organizations for fundraisers.

Contrary to its name, it's not just dogs who are cared for by the team members at Puppy Pamperer. The team works with animals ranging from kittens to parakeets during its walking, boarding, and pet-massage services, which include taking rottweilers on hikes and paying iguanas house visits. Regardless of the service, team members' love of animals shines through as they provide personal attention to every pet patron.
From pocket puppies to extra-large beasts, Pimp My Pooch Pet Spa coddles all breeds with salon services worthy of man’s best friend. Groomers massage their furry customers with organic and eco-friendly shampoos before hand drying them with soft towels. From there, they’ll administer either a breed-appropriate cut, or follow the owner’s lead and design a custom look. Throughout each 90-minute service, dogs can nibble on organic treats as a reward for good behavior or finally mastering their times tables. The treats are also available for purchase, along with doggy outfits, in the boutique. Pups who haven’t quite grasped the art of sit and stay can enroll in Pimp My Pooch’s dog-training sessions. Led by Melissa Munoz, the group or private seminars can alleviate all sorts of behavioral problems, from excessive barking and chewing to poor leash manners.
Tongue wagging, a playful pooch scampers around Wonder Dog Ranch's rubber-floored play area while others lounge on couches and gnaw on toy bones. Nearby, a staff member looks on, making sure the pups don't engage in any bad behavior, such as fighting or off-track betting.
The supervision is more of a precaution than anything because Wonder Dog Ranch requires dogs to pass a complimentary temperament test before they're allowed to frolic with the others during daycare or stay overnight in the cage-free boarding facilities. For those who pass the test with flying colors or grease the right palms with their slobber, playground equipment, faux grass, and a pint-sized bed await.
The staff ensures that its wards stay safe with more than just a temperament test—they also use eco-friendly cleaners and have a local vet come out periodically to inspect the premises. A portion of the fee collected for each dog's stay is donated to a local pet-friendly charitable organization, such as the Foothill Unity Center Pet Food bank.
