Who We Are and Why We Do It
Naturally, we are all dog-lovers, and we also enjoy seeing our pet owners feel good about taking care of their four-legged family members. The services we provide go far beyond just taking care of your animals. It involves developing a meaningful purpose-filled relationship with each and every one of you.
It’s so great to be able to educate pet owners and share the knowledge we have, in order for you to make better decisions for your pets on a daily basis. We truly want your pets to be healthier and live longer happier lives.
We believe our customers’ dogs are family members. No, not in a ridiculous way, but in a humane way - we view each pup as deserving of respect and loving care. At Grrreendog our goal is to improve the lives of dogs and their owners, Each one of our dogs wants, and needs, us to be their ‘hero’. We learn to speak their language. We spend time in their energy. And what we get one-hundred-fold is their love. Dogs are full of unconditional love. And it is our duty to give that back.
Owner & Operator
After studying Dog Grooming at the Rochester Institute of Dog Grooming in 2008, a dream formed in my mind to establish an alternative grooming salon experience, one where the culture would incorporate calm, quiet, respectful treatment of the dogs with a “green”, non-toxic environment. Grrreendog Grooming and Spa was founded in 2010 with the promise to be: "Gentle with your dog, gentle on our planet"
Hi, I’m Bill. I am a graduate of SUNY Adirondack with an Associate’s Degree in Humanities and Social Sciences. Later, I went to the College Experience Program at Saint Rose, in Albany. While at CEP I began my internship at Grrreendog Grooming and Spa. That was in 2014!
I have always liked being around animals, and before my studies, at CEP I had volunteered at a local horse stable. Now, I help maintain the Grrreendog Grooming salon and sometimes assist as a Bather. I keep learning more every day about working with our dogs.
Hi! I’m Samantha. I’ve loved animals my whole life. At age two, I had taken to crawling around on all fours, pretending to be a cat or a dog. Now, I have 4 cats, 2 rabbits, 2 parrots, and one crazy Border Collie! I spend a lot of my time caring for my pet family. I was drawn to Grrreendog because Grrreendog puts the dogs above everything else. I love working at a place that values the dogs comfort, as well as being environmentally green. I also love making the dogs feel healthier. Working here, I learn so much about dogs everyday and I want to apply my knowledge towards becoming a dog groomer one day soon!
"They are so great to the dogs here. I’m super protective of my tiny little Maltese...
She’s very petite and mostly scared to death of large dogs...She isn’t scared to go and even better is that she’s not scared when she leaves, and doesn’t mind coming. That’s how I know they treat the dogs well. They take great care with your pups. Well worth the cost. In a day and age where it’s probably near impossible to hire and find staff that care, the owner has found great people to add to her business. I will keep bringing Lily here."
