Bark n' Meow Pet Store Pack Members Offer Incredible Customer Service & Product Knowledge
Owner and creator of the shop, I have 36 years of dog experience, I have had dogs that I titled in mushing, obedience, conformation. I have judged shows, and handled professionally. I learned to groom from top show handlers, therefore, it is harder for me to groom a pet rather than a show dog. It just takes me longer but I still get the job done. My medical background of 33 years as a RN BSN is in medical and surgical nursing, that means I was a jack of all nursing areas. I liked rehab, ortho, gastro, and transplant medicine. This diverse background has given me a wide berth of knowledge. The dogs have given me nutrition and genetics background. I used this in human medicine as well to further my knowledge. I love, all things science and medicine, and keep abreast of all things new animal and human.

Brandi runs the shop and can easily answer any of your animal related questions. Brandi has a dachshund named Granny, who is frequently at the store to greet customers. She also has a cat named Darwin.
