NEW LOCATIONS! Ann Arbor and Milan
Since opening my first Pet Grooming shop in 2002, I've treated every animal that I have had the honor to service as though it were my own...I wouldn't have it any other way! -GLENN GOSINE, OWNER
I believe in the power of small local businesses to enhance communities and help people...I have seen it first hand. Prior to devoting the last two decades serving pet owners in the grooming industry, I majored in Biology at the University of Michigan, managed several pizza restaurants, and owned a successful window cleaning company. Outside of work, I love to read (especially about pets), nutrition, fitness, indoor cycling, and running. On most of my runs, you will likely see me struggling to keep up with my buddies Oscar and Oliver. Man those dogs love to run! Of course it's in their DNA, but paws down I'll bet it's because they spent most of puppyhood in shelter cages. Oh sweet freedom...rescue a pet today! Thank you for your interest, your trust with your pets, and your future business!

Hi, I'm Ashley and I love all animals! I currently have one 13-year-old tabby named Rocco..my little turd nugget...I love him!! Before joining Peticured I was a Veterinary Technician for 5 years. I have worked in several animal hospitals performing a variety of hands-on technical procedures and assisting in surgeries on dogs and cats. One of my favorite tasks was helping clients with nail trimming...doing it better than the rest. Now I get to do my favorite every day! Along with my love for animals, I love getting out in nature and seeing its beauty. A fun fact about myself is that I'm a classically trained musician. And by all means, clear the way if you see me on rollerskates!! I am looking forward to meeting you along with your fur baby!
Hello! My name is Tasha and I have experience working with animals for about four years as a Vet Assistant prior to joining Peticured. I take a lot of pride in performing perfect Peticured's. The best reward is getting kisses from your furry family member. Waiting for me at the end of the day is my 14-year-old fur child named Coco. She is a small shepherd/lab mix and by far the BEST dog in the world! When I'm not working I enjoy hanging out with family and going to the movies but cars definitely top my list. It hurts my soul to garage my girl "Gamora" over the winter! There is nothing better than hitting the road on long rides and adventures - I love exploring new places.
Hi, I'm Kristi! I'm a lifelong owner of many different types of animals as small as Guinea pigs and as large as donkeys. One thing in common among all of them is maintaining nails for the overall health of the animal. I've worked in both small animal and equine veterinary medicine in the past. Over the years I'm continually drawn back to professions where animal care is at the heart of the position. I currently have a cockatiel and three dogs - a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix, a Maltese, and a Xoloitzcuintli. Among them, I show in conformation and trial in canine sports where a well maintained nail makes a big difference in the performance of the dog. I hope that I can make nail trimming a comfortable and rewarding experience for you and your pet!
Hey everyone! Mandy here. Prior to joining the awesome Peticured team, I was working in the vet field for just over 5 years. My passions include animals (of course), music, dancing, reading, and spending time with my family. I am the mom of two awesome all black kitties named Ellie and Finn. I cannot wait to meet all your little bundles of joy and make them the happiest animals when they get off the table strutting their freshly Peticured nails!
Peticured is the brainchild of a passion for healthier pets, an entrepreneur's drive to create a business sparked by the demand for higher-caliber service, and an overwhelming desire to enjoy work! Hi, my name is Glenn Gosine and I am the owner of Peticured. I am the former owner of two Michigan self-serve and professional grooming facilities - "ShamPooches" and "Scrubbers"
At both ShamPooches and Scrubbers, it was daily business to greet new clients who sought a professional to shorten and maintain their pet's claws. Not every pet owner has the desire to perform that necessary task and so many confess to being rendered inert by the thought of doing it themselves. Since customers were paying for the service, they had expectations of quality and optimal results. They had come to the right place! Prior to opening my first shop, I discovered and mastered the four essentials required to execute an ideal pet nail trim: the anatomy of the claw, proficiency with the tool, the correct positioning of the pet, and compassionate confident handling. To this day, those same fundamentals are the warp and woof of every Peticured technician's excellence!
Throughout my decades as a small business owner, I have placed high priority in building a successful company based on returning customers. I've always aimed to get beaming smiles on new client faces by beating their expectations. I've been forever dogged and determined to consistently deliver the perfect nail results pet parents desired. I love helping, I adore the one-on-one interaction with each pet, and I am always delighted and gratified to hear customers exclaim, "Wow, I've never seen them that short!"
But something very significant happened over those years of service. I discovered that many of the "professionals" people entrusted to shorten their pet's claws weren't ponying up a decent quality procedure. I encountered this issue incessantly while operating both grooming shops. It became quite evident that a proper nail shortening technique was never taught to or learned by many of those providing the service. More unacceptable were those who didn't care enough to do a great job although they likely possessed reasonable skills. What I found most appalling though were the sub-par nail trim procedures that actually resulted in an advancing, longer quick. That's culpable action for a professional and insensitive to the poor pet in need of help!
True serendipity. It was through these observations that I saw a completely obvious opportunity to help and a business specializing in providing the highest quality nail shortening experience for dogs and cats was born! Peticured opened in 2016 to address the need for better pet nail care and promises to deliver that to every customer, new and returning. We've got your paw!
