Trainer, groomer, and unabashed dog lover Jessica Edgerly has had a lifelong interest in animals. Among many career accomplishments, Malone's resumé includes several training certificates, but perhaps more relevant is the fact that she has seven dogs of her own. Her passion for all things pooch serves her well at Central K-9, where she and her staff provide a variety of services including daycare on a full- and half-day basis. They also offer grooming, obedience training, and, on Saturday mornings, socialization classes where groups of dogs gather to interact and trade tips for seducing fire hydrants.
Planet Bark is an All-Suites Dog Resort in West Hartford, CT that offers dog daycare, overnight boarding, grooming, and training.

Due to improper training or seemingly aggressive appearances, some dog breeds have bad reputations. At Northeast K-9 Academy, however, the trained and dedicated staffers see past stereotypes and offer grooming, boarding, and training services to dogs regardless of their size, breed, or questionable musical tastes. Inside the three spacious indoor playrooms, pooches can explore, romp, and nap. Outside, a fenced-in stone play area provides dogs with fresh air and room to run while keeping their paws and coats clean.

Founded by American Mountain Guides Association–certified instructor Matt Shove, Ragged Mountain Guides teaches its climbing pupils the techniques and tools needed to scale the natural terrain of the Traprock region. Rock-climbing adventures illuminate how to handle rope and repel down mountain cliffs even when their escalators are broken. As seasonal temperatures drop, guides turn their attention to ice and alpine climbing, which challenges mountaineers to swing their axe and scale vertical ice. Students master increasingly advanced techniques until they can tackle cliffs on their own, and the most dedicated climbers can enroll in guide-certification programs. Matt Shove's expertise has also been tapped by organizations such as the U.S. Coast Guard, and he regularly repels into the offices of Climberism magazine to contribute articles.
The staffers at The Landlocked Dog don't put sugar into dogs’ birthday cakes. To cater to doggy palates, they only use all-natural ingredients such as bananas, honey, carrots, and peanut butter, though they can still spell out the name of the birthday pooch in icing. They also handcraft treats for their store's brand, Sophie's Seabiscuits, shaping delectable morsels into hearts and ladybugs. They concoct seasonal bites for the treat-of-the-month club, which gives pups two half-pound bags of incentive to do their owner’s laundry.
Their dedication to wholesome pet care extends beyond gustatory rewards, however. The boutique stocks fashionable collars, leashes, and grooming products tailored toward specific ailments, including odor and itchiness. Their selection of calming music—composed specifically to put dogs at ease—fosters peaceful car rides, in which pups aren't compulsively changing the radio station. At doggy daycare, small packs can frolic about the cozy and comforting setting while their owners check in via webcam.
