Gina Fox ~ My Qualifications
I have been a
professional pet groomer since 1972, my first job as a kid of 15 was
at Shores Kennels, in
Clinton Township, MI. I owned and operated that all-breed pet resort
since 1986 in March we celebrated 27 years of providing a healthy,
safe, clean and fun environment for family pets to enjoy, while
their owners have a relaxing vacation with peace of mind knowing
their pet is enjoying the same. That location is now under the
guidance of another "dog person" and I live in Northern
Michigan full time.
We have brought that same high quality
service and experience to Northern Michigan!
I am a Certified
Pet Care Technician., through the Pet Care Services Association
(formerly the ABKA) and experienced trainer, breeder and handler of
dogs and cats in all stages of their life, from the newborn to
geriatric individuals. We have over 26 AKC Champions to our credit in Conformation, Obedience and Hunt
Tests, Therapy Dogs and Search & Rescue.
We know from experience what works
and what it takes to keep pets happy and comfortable in their
temporary "home away from home". Pet accommodations and all-breed
grooming services are our core competency. We do not dabble in
retail, health services or other side businesses. Our focus is on
the safety, comfort and entertainment of our guests and peace of mind
for their owners while they are on vacation. Meadowpond is a twist
on a traditional kennel.
If you have a Special Needs pet. Does
his/her health or age prevent them from being in a Pet Resort ?
Call and ask about our home care.
Qualified care givers can stay at your home and take care of your pet
and home. Ask for Gina.
