The Mosquito Authority keeps skeeters at bay through services such as barrier sprays, misting systems, and special event sprays. During these treatments, exterminators apply an EPA-approved solution to exterior foliage including trees, shrubs, and magic beanstalks, which not only eradicates all current mosquitoes but also prevents new ones from stopping by for up to 21 days. While clearly harmful to mosquitoes, the solution is so focused that it won't cause harm to pets or children.
River Mountain Farm’s experienced equestrians saddle up to train students on a 100-acre facility that boasts five barns, eight large fields, three outdoor arenas, and a heated indoor arena with secure Polytrack footing. Obedient schoolmaster horses trot into daily lessons and fill the air with reassuring whinnies as students use provided equipment to prep and tack their chosen steeds. Once riders are secure in their saddles, instructors adjust lessons according to their skill level and foster clearer lines of communication with a brief tutorial in horse whispering.
The pet-care professionals at PetSuites coddle pups with accommodation in individual doggie daycare suites and tidy unwieldy manes with a slew of canine grooming packages. During the bath-and-brush package ($24–$59, depending on dog size and breed), staff suds up pooch tresses with shampoo and conditioner before an aromatherapy body spray stimulates wet noses with fragrant essences of fire hydrant and helpless mailman. After nails are trimmed and ears cleaned, staff members ease tense shoulders and hindquarters with a gentle-touch massage and tie on a bow or bandana.
All day long at Poochies Plus, four-legged friends, separated by size, frolic freely in cage-less indoor and outdoor play areas. Dogs new to the scene meet with a staff member for 20 minutes to discern play style as well as favorite foods. Then, they're shuffled into play lots where they can splash in kiddie pools, gnaw on chew toys, or chase balls tossed by animal-loving staff members. In addition, overnight guests enjoy bedding in their own sleep space so they don't disturb others when rehearsing dramatic soliloquies from Lassie.
