Jen Quasney

Pet Stylist

Jennifer has had pets in her life and heart since she was a kid, always bringing strays home. Her first job was working at a small pet store when she was 16, she then started bathing, and eventually worked her way up to grooming; which she has been now for fifteen years. Jen has a Lab (Diesel) and a tabby cat (Spartacus) and spends time with her family when not making your pets look and feel great. Jen feels very lucky to be part of the Smoochie Pooch family. She explains, “They care about their employees as much as they care about our wonderful customers.”

Megan Ross

Megan has been part of the Smoochie Pooch family since early 2017, first as an assistant and now as a full pet stylist.

When Megan is not at Smoochie Pooch, she likes to go to the gym and to take her dogs to the Portage lake front.
