Wagging Tails N Wet Noses – Dog Grooming and Pet Supplies on Savannah’s Square

Savannah, Mo. – A new business in Savannah has opened on the Square. Owners Amber Barker and Kelly Duncan are providing clients with a full servicedog grooming salon and pet supply location.

Amber brings eight years of grooming experience to the venture. She updates her knowledge and experience by keeping up to date with the newest and latest grooming styles and trends by attending grooming seminars and conferences yearly. She has had experience working with hard to handle dogs or dogs who have extreme health issues that most grooming salons turn away.

Kelly has been a CFO for the past 20 years, but has dreamed about having a pet supply store.  Her passion for animals started as a child being raised on a farm. But dogs hold a special place in her heart. She says, “I’ve had a total of 7 dogs in the last 20 years. A couple of them have had illnesses which made me do a little bit of research on the best foods, treats, and even medicines. I want to be able to help my community with issues with their animals, and sometimes it is as simple as changing a food to help with stomach issues, or even allergies. I am constantly learning new things to help my animals and would love the chance to help you with yours.”

Amber and Kelly turned to Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation for business advice after the Savannah Chamber alerted them to the availability of the organization’s services. The two say that Keli Morris of NWMEF was able to give them a big boost with their marketing strategies.  They are delighted that after hard work, patience and dedication, they have now been able to establish their business. Amber says, “We’re so excited about opening and giving the Savannah residents and those in outlying communities the opportunity to have top notch grooming and pet supplies close to home!”
