As their name implies, the technicians at Data Doctors see computers as patients, and look to cure CPU maladies rather than simply treating symptoms. In the span of a short wait, the team diagnoses the problem at hand and determines the best course of action, should it be repairs, upgrades, or complete replacements. The winner of a Spirit of Enterprise Award by the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and fluent in both Windows and Mac systems, the computer sleuths root out viruses and spyware, optimize drives with defragmentation and registry cleaning, and even delve into cases to drive out fan-choking dust and infestations of robotic ants. Once services are complete, they chat with each customer to explain how best to prevent a return visit.
The team's expertise also extends to the sale and setting up of new computers, including the safe transfer of data from old hard drives to new ones. To keep businesses running smoothly, Data Doctors can set up new networks, lend supplemental IT help, and recover data lost to the void.

Balsamic vinegars that have been smoked or steeped with flavors such as espresso make sophisticated dressings and sauces. Patrons can also peruse olive-oil-based soaps and beauty products.
Well after the sun has set over the Tortolita Mountains, the world-class trainers at Crazy Heart Ranch grab the reigns under the lights of a spacious outdoor arena. When they're not riding, the horse-loving crew lends their equine knowledge to students during monthly clinics, group lessons, private lessons, and kids' camps at the Northwest Tucson ranch, where they focus on creating meaningful relationships between riders and horses. All resident instructors and horses are experienced in reining, Western and English riding styles, ranch horse versatility, and team roping. Guests can saddle up and ride on the ranch's private trails, or complement lessons with a picnic under the region's native Mesquite trees, the same trees that money doesn't grow on.
As an avid animal lover, it was only natural that Anne Donnellan should create a haven of hospitality for many types of pets, united only by their lack of opposable thumbs. As owners embark on vacations or business travels, dogs luxuriate in deluxe suites, and cats lounge in a comfy cattery rife with perches, hiding spots, and lambskin bedding. Boarding accommodations for rabbits, guinea pigs, snakes, and birds keep creatures of all stripes happy while owners are away. During grooming sessions, animal-loving specialists clean coats with natural shampoos and conditioners and clean ears so dogs can more thoroughly enjoy the sounds of their favorite dog-whistle orchestras.

At Anthony's K-9 Academy, head trainer Anthony Holcomb calls what he does "people training for dogs." This is because dogs read their owners' body language and energy for cues on how to react. An experienced trainer, Anthony has a range of training methods in his tool belt, which he adapts depending on the dog and its owner. He holds both group and private training sessions, and will even board dogs who are especially challenged or need to be convinced there is no monster living under their beds.
