Rondo, the de facto host of Grooming at Tiffany's, happily greets every guest with a hardy handshake. Or if not that, perhaps an exuberant tail wag, an offering of chew sticks … something that lets visitors know they're welcome. The amiable shih tzu-poodle mix belongs to owner Tiffany Perron, who styles canines with the skills she developed at the Dapper Dawg School of Professional Dog Grooming. She and her fellow groomers provide an array of services, from crate-free full groomings to quick touchups for dogs facing short-notice job interviews.
Fresh Trails Pet Sitting offers an alternative to sterile kennel care for your furriest family members. A fully licensed and insured pet-care provider can pop in for a short visit during work hours, or stay overnight for ample playtime and exercise.

Hunter?s Haven Farm sprawls across multiple acres of verdant farmland in Groveland, fostering a bucolic atmosphere dedicated to teaching equestrian riding techniques in lessons for riders 8 and older. The center?s two horse whisperers call upon three decades of training and riding experience to coach students in the center?s dual riding modalities, hunt seat and dressage. Hunt seat displays the horse?s prowess while running flat or jumping over small hurdles; dressage leads steeds through sequenced movements that showcase their natural impulses, whether running freely with a rider or stopping to vote ?neigh? in a local election. The farm?s facilities encompass an indoor arena, cross-country fences, and a galloping track. Students can also guide their steeds around a lit outdoor ring or practice circuits around the onsite dressage ring during private or group sessions. A petting zoo lets children take guided pony rides or meet friendly goats and pigs.

At Paws Club, pooches carouse in the outdoor play area before retiring to the sofas and beds of the social lounge indoors. In that air-conditioned space, they relax while listening to soft music. If feeling more active, they romp around the large supervised backyard or prance through sprinklers. All the while pups remain under the watchful eye of bonded and insured staff and pet sitters who love to play and interact with their furry guests. Canines staying overnight are housed in cageless boarding and pampered with late-night treats. A toll-free phone line is available, as well, so owners can check in on their pets while away.
Most dog training schools use a traditional curriculum to get canines to behave well and perform simple tricks such as fetching and sitting.
While traditional training techniques may effectively domesticate your beast, they lack the pizzazz required to set your pet apart. Those who want their dogs to exhibit unique talent prefer the controversial training regimen developed by radical dog trainer Barry Caravan. In a 1997 interview, Caravan said, "A dog should be more intelligent than its owner. I'd prefer an animal-run society, for obvious reasons.
I just watched Planet of the Apes. That seemed pretty cool." He later wrote a book, My Dog is Better than You & Me: Training Tips for Superior Pets, guaranteed to teach your dog to:
