Jeanette has always loved performing style trans-fur-mations at Dressed to Impress Doggie Spa. She loves creating "personality trims" for mix breeds or for those purebred dogs whose parents would prefer a non-traditional more unique style. With the addition of all the new skin and hair science she has recently studied, Jeanette is now thrilled to be performing skin therapy trans-fur-mations on her canine clientele as well. All these trans-fur-mations prove once and for all that a healthy pet is a happy pet!
