Jenny Criner recently opened Happy Tails Paw Salon at 433 Murry St.

Happy Tails Paw Salon is a new pet grooming business at 433 Murry St. that just opened earlier this week.

Owner Jenny Criner, a native of White Pine County, said she has such a love for animals, and has previous grooming experience with her own dogs and previous employment with Cedar Grove, and Wild West Grooming.

Criner decided to give it a shot at becoming a business owner, and opened up her own dog grooming business.

One of the services Criner mentioned that she provides is defermanating, which is great for a dog that sheds. This service should be done every 6-8 weeks.

And Criner says that is something that she uses on all the dogs with double coats whether a customer ends up going with a 6-8 week program or not.

Criner also mentioned that they clean ears, nails, trim, whatever type of cut the owner would like that’s specific to the breed, and she  grooms cats as well.

“We dress them up with a little bandana and send them home,” she said.

Criner mentioned that she wants to eventually include teeth brushing to the list of services, but that’s down the road.

The location looks very small but has been redecorated with individual holding bays for the animals with a white picket fence look to it, bright green walls, and animal print stencil as as a border, giving a bright and welcoming appearance.

And, too make an even more professional look, Criner has a uniform that matches the color scheme.

Criner has recruited her mother, Penny Robison, to help out. Prices are reasonable depending on what you want done,  hours of operation are Monday thru Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

They can be contacted at 775-293-4848. Business has already launched off pretty well for Criner too. She’s only been open for three days and is already booking appointments about a week out.
