MARYSVILLE — Crystal Keys knows that some pooches can sniff out when their owners are taking them to a pet-grooming salon, but at Bows & Biscuits, she offers another set of scents to entice them.

“Dogs might get skittish if they think they’re being taken in for a wash, but because we bake our own treats on site, the smell draws them in,” said Keys, a 15-year National Certified Master Groomer who credited coworker Cassie Erickson, herself a 14-year veteran professional in the pet industry, with supplying the treats. “They’re all organic, locally farmed and fresh, with no corn, soy or wheat.”

Bows & Biscuits opened at 5935 Grove St. in Marysville on Aug. 21, and received more than 200 likes on its Facebook page at Bows & Biscuits within its first week.

“I like to know that I’m giving my clients and their pets the best care possible,” Keys said. “We want the pets to feel clean and safe, because we’re doing this just for them.”

“We’re passionate about animals,” said Bethany Dalton, Keys’ other coworker, whose 20 years as a pet groomer have included several stints at dog shows. “Dogs are a big part of my life, and I love when their owners get excited to see them all cleaned up.”

Keys explained that Bows & Biscuits’s basic baths start at $20, with full grooming services averaging around $38 and going up to as much as $75 for some of their bigger pets.

“We customize our services and products for each pet,” Keys said. “To start with, your pet won’t be in our salon all day long. We’ll get them in and out, straight through, so that your doggies won’t stress out. We hand-dry them and don’t kennel them.”

Bows & Biscuits even offers an indoor patch of live, growing grass for pets to relieve themselves on.

“We love your dogs like they were our own,” Keys said.
