Default Dog care info needed

I will be staying TV from end of December for possibly 4 months to see how I like it. I have 3 dogs, both 13. One a pug and one a border collie mix.
I am looking for recommendations for a vet and groomer. My pug does not like his nails trimmed by me, so I take him to a groomers every 2 weeks. Need advice.
Also, where are the good dog parks? Would love to meet others and their fur babies.

I recommend Buffalo Ridge. There is a vet on site 24 by 7.The vet techs clip nails and there is an on site groomer. I will not recommend dog parks as I do not think they are safe.

best vet around is Dr. Porter in Wildwood 352-748-2543. No frills office, common sense vet. Anyone who goes to him loves him. I take my dog to Woofgang Bakery in Brownwood for his nails. you can walk in anytime between 10-4 and they do a drimmel pedicure. Cost is $15 but if you get a high school discount card (when you get here go to the office in the Villages High School and buy one for $10. Woofgang gives you $5 off each nail trim. The best dog park is Atlas Dog Park on Moyer Loop. That's below 466A. There's one on Bonita Blvd. Brinson Perry--you will meet people there but it's situated on a hill, Atlas is flat. There is one in Fenney but that's a distance away. Where will you be staying? there's also some above 466.
