Jennifer Thurman, owner of Sit Happens Dog Training, earned her certification from the International Federation of Guide Dog Schools, and then spent seven years teaching seeing-eye dogs to guide their owners. Using the experience and techniques that she developed as a seeing-eye-dog trainer, Jennifer presses a clicker to signal to family dogs that a treat is on its way in order to teach them to sit, heel, or deal the next round of Go Fish. She leads both group classes and in-home sessions in which dogs and owners learn basic obedience skills or target problem behaviors.
When their owners are out of the house, pets need someone trustworthy to feed them and tuck them in every time they walk around in a circle and lie down. Crescenti Moon Pet Sitting provides such services as well as regular pet visits, dog walks, dog runs for more active pooches, and pet-waste removal from the yard. And, because Crescenti Moon's service rates are the same no matter how many critters are in the house, multiple-pet homes are ensured equal access to regular support without having to pay an arm and a leg, and a leg, and a leg, and a leg.
Whether it's for a routine trim or an extended stay, each visit to Femmes & Fidos begins with a furry version of a red-carpet welcome. Pet pros—all of whom are American Red Cross Pet CPR certified—start with a bit of playtime to get pups happy and relaxed while consulting their people about the dogs’ habits, behavior, and general knee-high outlook on life. Paws ease into padded bathtubs designed to simulate the feel of a mud-hole full of chicken broth and onto cushioned grooming tables. After they've been groomed and re-fluffed, pets romp into their owners' arms smelling lightly of essential-oil-based, aromatherapeutic bath products. Boarding guests snuggle and socialize in lattice-fenced play areas selected to suit their temperament, even if they're aging, anxiety-prone, or behaviorally challenged; the Pet Sitters International members specialize in handling hard-to-please canines.
Paws-N-Play simplifies your daily routine with one-time and routing dog-walking services. After a brief consultation with the owner, a fully insured walker takes a jaunt around the neighborhood with pup in tow. A typical session may include playing, exercise, and basic training reinforcement. Pet owners may also opt for supplements such as feeding, supplying medication, scooping waste, or teaching the dog how to drive.

Aided by more than 40 years of competitive-riding and training experience, Sharon Golesh built East Coast Equestrian Training Center, a full-service training, boarding, and breeding facility. Hidden under an expansive, baby-blue roof are 54 stalls that stay packed all year long with equine boarders and in-house horses ready to run through guided rides and lessons. Students learn the equestrian arts within [facilities] (http://gr.pn/n2lU5n) that include an exterior riding ring and dressage ring complete with mirrors and a pack of paparazzi sheep hounds.
