As pet owners themselves, Pam and Bob Bennett of In Home Pet Care make sure each of their client's furry friends is matched with the perfect petsitter. In fact, they handpick each staff member themselves, so that they can pair the sitter's strengths with pets who will benefit. The sitters come straight to homes—or hotels—for 30 or 60 minutes, sometimes even staying overnight, to ensure pets are fed, medicated, walked, and played with. They'll also grab your paper and mail, put out and take in the trash, and flick lights on or off to avert potential intruders.
Pet owners consider their animals a part of their family, and the veterinarians at Redmond-Kirkland & Redmond-Fall City Animal Hospitals treat them as such. The American Animal Hospital Association–accredited hospitals possess medical technology that you won't find at many vet's offices—their CO2 laser lets the vets perform delicate surgeries with minimal bleeding and pain, digital dental x-rays help them detect tooth decay, and cancer therapy helps ailing pets fight unfortunate conditions. Their specialties don't end with cats and dogs, as the medical professionals also provide care to other creatures ranging from guinea pigs and rabbits to birds and reptiles.
A Pampered Pooch cares for its canine clients with grooming, daycare, and boarding services, each designed to cater to owners as well as pets. A bath, brush, and dry leaves coats fluffy and free of grime, and nail trimming or grinding keeps pets from scratching up floors while tap-dancing. Dogs who arrive for daycare entertain in off-leash areas, where they play with other pups or with plenty of provided toys. Humans headed out of town can sign up their pets for boarding, which includes large personal suites and dog beds raised off of the floor. Owners can also opt for boarding add-ons that cater to their dog’s personality; staff can take active pups for a walk around the park or treat mellower dogs to one-on-one cuddling time or a midday bath and groom.
Situated on 10 glorious acres, Gold Creek Equestrian Center's two barns house nearly 100 stalls—each comfortable quarters for private boarding and the horse haven's own 30 steeds, which are available for lessons. Outside on the 135'x240' sand arena, equestrians can conquer an Olympic PVC jump course or practice kicking up a sandstorm worthy of a John Wayne reenactment. Meanwhile, two indoor arenas host trotters as they rehearse dressage routines during the cooler months. Private and semiprivate lessons can be tailored to each student's age, skill level, and favored style of riding, including English and American Western flavors.
Dogs first began bounding happily through Cascade Kennels, Inc. in 1975, when the pet-care facility opened on a rural, wooded plot of land. The owners fully rebuilt the facility in 1999, and today, dogs continue to thrive in secure, heated areas designed for safety and comfort. Caring staffers tend to canines' physical and emotional needs during daycare and boarding sessions, engaging them with activities such as grooming, one-on-one play sessions, and social interaction with other dogs. Canines aren't the only guests welcome at Cascade Kennels, however; caretakers also look after cats, birds, rabbits, and other household pets.
