Green Dog Spa Team - Lynn


Lynn is Co-Owner of Green Dog Spa with her daughter, Erica. She is a Jacksonville native with a life long passion for pets. After 4 decades in the pet care industry, she still believes that every dog matters, whether he or she is waiting to be rescued or living in the lap of luxury. It’s the Dog-Human relationship that we can focus on and make a difference! “It has truly been a blessing to own businesses that allows us to mentor other dog lovers, and to hire and train dog bathers, groomers and instructors. The most exciting part of this career is seeing the smiles from pet parents after a new haircut, and seeing groomers accomplish goals they never dreamed possible!” She now owns & operates Sunland Acres (Pet Boarding Camp) in Fruit Cove, FL.
