As a little girl, Vanessa Ortega was often found snoozing underneath her family's mobile home alongside her german shepherd, Giant. An intense sleepwalker, on many nights she would leave her bedroom, open the front door, and make her way down the front steps with the faithful Giant. Her bond with canines continued into adulthood, during which she's owned up to four dogs at a time. After trying different overnight-boarding facilities, Ortega noticed that her pups displayed anxiety, timidity, and other signs of trauma, so she decided to open her own pet-care business to give dogs high-quality attention.
During daily visits, Ortega and her staff care for pets in their owners' homes, taking them out for walks, filling their food and water bowls, and playing games such as catch and Stratego. Staffers spend the night at the animal's home during overnight visits, which can be a comfort to anxious pets, or take more sociable pets to their own home for a sleepover. Without fail, regular customers are assigned the same caretaker and substitute caretaker for each visit, both of whom they meet during a consultation before the first visit. They can rest assured knowing that Ortega interviews and background-checks all employees thoroughly to ensure that they love pets and are not going to dress them up like the characters of Little Women. Staff also provide masters concierge services, which include running errands and performing light chores, such as grocery shopping, house sitting, and home organization.
For all their ubiquity, chain restaurants seldom embody the same character and culture as their independently owned counterparts. That’s where Arizona Food Tours comes in. With their signature A Taste of Old Town Scottsdale tour, the company introduces visitors to the idiosyncrasies and food of the desert burg, from classic western grub to the local wine bars that pour cabernet and red zinfandel for diners and thirsty cacti.

Boasting a 100% cage-free environment and over 8,000 total sq. feet, Gilbert Dogs 24/7 & Chandler Dogs 24/7 keep pups active as they romp around in open playrooms supervised by well-trained staff on grounds open 24 hours a day. The boarding facility screens every dog during a behavioral evaluation conducted prior to admission. All pooches that pass are free to run around the daycare gnawing on toys, crafting canine art, and acquiring best friends who don’t ever demand that they fetch newspapers or platters bearing three-course meals. Supervising staff members are certified dog lovers and have completed an Interpreting Dog Body Language seminar to help diffuse potential conflicts in the playroom, and film videos of pups having fun to show to returning owners. For clients leaving their pups for an extended period, the facility’s overnight boarding service allows owners to rest easy knowing that an overnight staff member is always on hand to comfort canines after nightmares of losing at poker. The shop rounds out its canine-comforting service menu with shuttle rides to appointments or puppy field trips, courses in obedience training, and spa grooming sessions in which pups are washed, dried, and brushed until coats gleam with a healthy shine.
