A Chat with Hush Puppy’s K9 Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Hush Puppy’s K9 Center is one of a kind in eastern Tennessee. We have three self-serve dog wash tubs in a spa setting. We provide everything but the dog. Included in the price is shampoo and rinse, brushes, towels, aprons, and dryers. Our facility also contains a 3,000-square-foot, climate-controlled indoor training arena.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites?
Our retail includes Kong, Soggy Doggy mats, Ruff Hides, custom fleece jackets, Go Dog Supplement, Teddy the Dog shirts, and much more.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Hush Puppy’s Pet Services started in West Knoxville in May 2010 as a pet-sitting and dog-walking business. We have grown to over 450 clients and 13 pet sitters who are the best of the best! We wanted to [expand] our pet service idea to a community-type center for dogs.
What do you love most about your job?
Both Suzanne and Trish love pets. We both own numerous pets and have always had pets growing up. Taking care of clients’ pets like they are our own is our passion!
