At the award-winning Camp Bow Wow's locations spread throughout the U.S., certified doggy counselors supply love, attention, and 24-hour monitoring in indoor and outdoor play areas. Throughout the day, canine campers splash in pools, climb over play equipment, and exchange sniffs, barks, and phone numbers with other furry friends. Camp counselors certified in dog behavior analyze the personality of each guest before placing dogs into separate playgroups. Meanwhile, live webcams allow owners to check in on pups either online, or via iPhone or Android phones with the Camp Bow Wow mobile app. Trusted pet whisperers feed, walk, and care for pets in-home with a Home Buddies service in some regions, which allows dogs, cats, birds, and fish stay to remain at home to field telemarketing calls. The staff also helps dogs brush up on their manners with obedience and behavior lessons.

Its courses, taught by a team of experienced chefs, touch on general and specific cooking techniques, from knife skills to vegetable-cooking methods less destructive than flooding a garden with boiling water.
"Vin hesten," a Norwegian phrase meaning "wine horses," is an appropriate title for a stable located right in the middle of Temecula Valley's wine country. And though wine and horseback riding is a major draw for tourists and locals, Vin Hesten Trail Adventures has a far more humanitarian pursuit. Every trail horse onsite is a rescue from a neighboring ranch that may otherwise have been sent to auction or slaughter. Guests can stop by for a quick lesson, purchase gear, or opt for a guided trail ride through the lush outlying wine country.
