Pride & Groom / Aqua Doggie helps owners soap up dirty pups at a trio of self-serve stations. The shop lays out shampoos and conditioners, bathing mitts and Zoom Groom scrubbers, towels, goggles, and other grooming essentials in each private, climate-controlled room. Once owners free their canines from straitjackets of grime, staffers step in to clip and dremel-grind nails as well as express anal glands. Pride & Groom / Aqua Doggie also stocks grooming supplies such as brushes, combs, scissors, and eyelash curlers, and invites pooches to frolic on its grassy dog run. If requested, the shop can dispatch friendly staffers to provide in-home pet care.

Inside Planet Canine’s 1,400-square-foot converted warehouse and outside in its spacious, fenced-in yard, the happy sounds of frolicking dogs can be heard as animal-loving staffers supervise up to nine hours of daily outdoor playtime. Led by canine enthusiast Kate Marden, the staff watches over pups as they cavort on play structures and splash in shallow pools during the hot summer months. After playtime, dogs rush indoors to be fed Merrick wheat- and corn-free food before bedding down on blankets and bath rugs. Each canine lounges in his or her own area on overnight stays, for naptime, and during writing sessions for poetry composed entirely of panting and barking noises.
While Spot Pet Care's canine clientele may not appreciate the shop’s attractive displays of goodies, they'll enjoy their contents as well as the affections from Spot's head groomer, Catherine. Styling sessions begin in the facility's stainless-steel, eco-friendly bathtubs with ergonomic contours that help keep dogs comfortable and organic shampoo mixed with just enough water. A window allows full views of the separate grooming room, letting owners watch as groomers make wild manes more manageable. Pups who are especially good or especially spoiled can sniff out a reward in Spot Pet Care's fully stocked canine general store filled with hormone-free treats, fetching collars, interactive toys, and books containing the home addresses of every mailman in town. Lovers of all four-legged friends, Spot Pet Care groomers reserve every second Sunday for cat grooming appointments.
At AlphaDog, leash-less pups romp freely through 5,000 square feet of outdoor astroturf while their human companions are working or vacationing. Before basking in the sunny lawn, four-pawed friends undergo a temperament trial (a waived $25 value) to ensure they can politely cavort with others and won't affix Kick Me signs to unsuspecting playmates. Starting at 7 a.m., owners can drop off their furry friends for 12 hours of daycare or 24 hours of boarding. Puppies and small breeds caper about in a separate small-dog yard, and all pups pile into separate beds for rest time, drifting into squirrel-populated dreamscapes.
With 35 years of experience under his belt, Hugh White of Hugh White Training Stables and fellow equestrian Jody Werner impart horse-whispering skills to riders of all levels during fun, expertly taught lessons. After one to three students saddle up, experienced instructors draw on classical training methods to teach basic, intermediate, or advanced skills. Horses paw at yellow sand in huge arenas or leap over jumps in outdoor fields as students trot, cantor, jump, or arrange their mounts in My Little Pony–inspired tableaus.
