however, comes in many forms and sometimes greatness is found in the smallest things. For Gina Fletcher, owner of Froggwoods holistic Pet Spa in Overland Park, nobility is demonstrated by caring for our loyal companions. After working for years in the grooming industry, Gina was dissatisfied with some of the industry standards. “I saw things that were done out of convenience and not for the welfare of the pets. Most people bring their pets to be groomed because they love them and want the best care possible for them. There are many common practices in the industry that fall far short of the best we want for our animal companions, and I wanted to change that,” Gina compassionately shared. Out of this desire Froggwoods was born. The pet spa began as a small family business, and without the help of big loans, and is truly a labor of love. Unlike most pet grooming salons, Froggwoods practices holistic care with a focus on the wellbeing of the whole pet. Every element of the spa is designed for the health and comfort of the pet using only all natural products and the safest practices. The salon does not use cage dryers, a practice that can be dangerous she explains. “Cage dryers are not necessarily groomer attended. A groomer can place the dog in the cage, set up the dryer and move on to groom the next pet. It is easy to forget that that the dryer is on. Even if it is on a timer, it can cause a lot of damage to the eyes and skin.” Gina has worked hard to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere, but it is not always calm, she shared. “We are a cage-free (and cage-less, in the case of dogs whose owners prefer to keep their pets separate) facility, so grooming day is also play day! There are often several pets roaming the play area enjoying time with their friends.” Caring for pets is an honor for Gina, who sees it as a way of giving her best to those that give so much to our society. “Pets add so much to our lives and serve us in so many ways. My passion is giving back to them.’ Nobility does not always need to be grand. Sometimes the smallest acts become great.
