With three dogs and two cats of her own, Jennie Credille doesn’t draw much of a line between her work and home life. Though she no longer works at an animal hospital, the certified veterinary technician continues to spend many of her waking hours caring for pets as the owner of Perfect Pet Cuts.
With help from three experienced staffers, Credille bathes, blow-dries, and brushes cats and dogs of all breeds and sizes. Her signature service—the aptly named Perfect Bath—finishes off a sudsy wash with a toenail clipping and a cleansing scrub for the ears. Grooming add-ons such as Furminator shed-control treatments, nail polishes, and dental care further contribute to pets’ health and looks, as do the walks and food they receive during their tenure at the salon. Before sending dogs back to their owners, Credille dresses them up with a posh bow, a stylish bandana, or a snout-mounted monocle.
