Fur Baby Bliss, luxury pet services, Welcomes You with Open Paws

And a peace of mind

There’s nothing I am more passionate about than being around and caring for animals. I'm an advocate, fur mom, and lover of animals great and small. I am also that pet parent that is always looking for a clean, safe place with people that understand how to read pet behaviors and will love and adore my pets as their own keeping them as comfortable as possible. I understand it's hard to find this personalized type of service and I wanted to offer this to pet parents like me out there looking for the same kind of top notch care to their fur-babies. Services include luxury spa, pet grooming, boarding, and other specialized services for the busy professional.

Our facility takes great pride in cleanliness, comfort, positive reinforcement, and a fear free atmosphere. Its my goal that your pet(s) is enjoying their time with us so much that they don't miss you as much as they would at a normal boarding facility and will be tired & happy for good snuggles with you when you get home! Your pet will be taken special care of as if they were my own — with love, kindness and endless patience. (and lots of hugs and kisses)

About Me

Following Fur Fur's Passion - All Great Things Take Time

Hi, I'm Jennifer. My family calls me Fur-Fur since the time I was a toddler. I suppose its because I was born to run with the pack. (Pack of dogs that is) I'm a country girl who has been around animals my entire life and known to sneak home stray cats, lizards, rabbits, and moles (yes moles) to take care of them until my mother would find them and we had to release them back into the wild or take them back to the farm. Since I was 8 years old, I have been pet sitting and caring for our relatives, neighbors, and friends' pets when they go on vacation or working late which gave me a lot of experience with a wide variety of different dog breeds, horses, and cats. I was raised with dogs and cannot imagine a life without them.


Since high school, my mother helped me come up with the fun idea of running a luxury pet boarding facility someday, a concept, at the time, had been rare in certain markets. While in college, working on a business management degree in hopes to have my own business someday, I developed my business plan for my luxury resort concept and took it to a competition through DEX, a collegiate business organization, to present the idea. This plan then sent me to a National competition in Anaheim, CA.  While working toward building my dream and developing my professional skills to successfully run a business someday, I took on a great career in banking/finance for the next 16 years. From lending, to branch manager, to Reginal Market Manager and small commercial lender, I learned the importance of community relations, great customer service, how to help others succeed in order for me to succeed and of course understanding finance in running a good business.  All the while, I kept fulfilling my passion through fostering & training dogs, serving on our local animal shelters board of directors and volunteering to walk shelter dogs and fundraising efforts. Although I enjoyed the financial industry, it was time for me to move on to what really made me get out of bed in the morning!


By 2019, I was eager and ready to move forward to living out my dream where I spent the next year earning my certifications and constant trainings to transition into the Pet Services world and best care for your pets needs in a positive, fear free environment.

My current certifications include:

  • Certified pet groomer

  • AKC safe groomer certification 

  • Certified pet CPR

  • Knowing Dogs (understanding & reading them) training through the Dog Guru’s program. 

  • Business Launch Program through the Dog Guru's

  • Continuing on more to come....


In the fall of 2019, my husband and I found the perfect spot for our "fur-ever" home & vision of my dream in the middle of beautiful farm country just 30 minutes east of Grand Rapids, where our dogs could run in the fields, take hikes and play free. We named it the "Dog House" since there will always be more dogs than people here.  I'm so blessed to have married a wonderful, kind, and supportive husband that loves the dogs as much as I do! We have four fur babies of our own (two which were adopted), a cat-dog raised by dogs, and two rabbits.  I'm exactly where I need to be, right in the middle of happy barking dogs!


We would like to welcome and share our Dog House with your beloved pet with us to enjoy the fun wildlife, trails, and get lots of snuggles with.
