Lynn

Lynn

Co-Owner

Lynn is Co-Owner of Green Dog Spa with her daughter, Erica. After 4 decades in the pet care industry she still believes that every dog matters, whether waiting to be rescued or living in the lap of luxury. It’s the Dog-Human relationship that we can focus on & make a difference! “It has truly been a blessing to own businesses that allows us to mentor other dog lovers while training bathers, groomers & instructors. The most exciting part of this career is seeing the smiles from pet parents after a new haircut & seeing groomers accomplish goals they never dreamed possible!”
