Carrie Anne isn't just the owner of Wet Dogz, she's also a proud pet owner with a pseudo zoo of her own. It's this deep love of animals that prompted her to start her own pet-care business. Here, clients can seek the expertise of certified groomers for services ranging from flea baths and haircuts to pet daycare services. The facility also houses a bakery with treats for pets.
Mocha’s Pet Salon, named after the owner’s dog, operates under the philosophy that pets should be groomed in a place that’s as relaxing and stress-free as home. The salon’s team strives to build a cozy environment where pooches feel comfortable while they’re getting bathed, trimmed, cleaned, and pampered with oatmeal treatments. As a result, dogs of all shapes and sizes prance out of the salon’s two locations looking, feeling, and smelling like a million bucks.
At Scrub-A-Pup, everything you need to bathe your pooch stands at the ready: tubs and speed dryers, myriad shampoos and conditioners, and combs, brushes, and towels. Beyond the self-serve dog wash, its staff also pampers pups with grooming sessions that can include luxurious add-ons such as hot oil treatments or pad conditioning.

Sisters Jan Nasiadka and Joanne Ferreira have committed their lives to helping dogs in need. For more than 12 years, Jan has rescued, rehabilitated, and trained both mixed and purebred dogs. Joanne has a special knack for connecting with canines, and she is always prepared to help an injured pet with her certification in pet first aid. The pair offers sitting, training, and walking services that keep dogs entertained and teach them habits that will make pets and their owners happier.
All programs include free in-home consultations, where Joanne or Jan can get to know the dog’s history and special needs. When owners are at work or on vacation, dogs can stretch their legs on simple walks or special adventures where the Happy Dogs @ Home walker will take them to a local park or a castle made of Milk Bones. Training plans range from one-off lessons to concentrated rehabilitation focusing on aggression or fear and backyard agility programs that keep muscles fit.
