For most of us, our dream job would combine a career with our personal passion. For Sandy Yeung of Suwanee, the realization of that dream came when she traded the world of big business for sloppy kisses and suds as the owner of Splash and Dash Groomerie and Boutique, located in the Shakerag Shopping Center on McGinnis Ferry Road.
Says Yeung, “I spent over 10 years in a corporate working environment and it burnt me out. I was looking for something that I could do on a daily basis that made me happy. I love Splash and Dash because I spend my days being covered in slobbery puppy kisses and making my clients happy. There’s no better feeling than when you reunite an owner with their freshly groomed, clean fur baby!”
Splash and Dash opened in November of 2015 and has been off and running ever since. The shop offers both bath and brush services and full grooming packages, and membership subscriptions are available that provide an unlimited bath and brush program that can be combined with a monthly full grooming. In addition to grooming services, the shop has a full service boutique offering food, accessories, toys, and grooming products with special orders available.
But of all the benefits Splash and Dash offers its customers, perhaps the biggest one is priceless: time. Yeung knows that most families don’t have the time to keep their four-legged friends looking their best, and finding a grooming professional they can trust makes life a lot easier. “Keeping an active lifestyle is important to me, just as I am sure it is to you. We can take care of all the dirty work and hassle for you, so you can spend the time with your loved ones.”
Yeung enjoys her business, and she especially enjoys being a part of the business community in Suwanee. “This is a great place for dogs and family. My store may be new to the area, but we care about the community,” she says, and sums up her philosophy this way: “Being a pet store owner is more than just a way to make money for me. It is my passion and I pride myself on offering amazing service and customer care.”
