Tiffany’s Pet Spot has moved to a new spot on West River Drive, just three blocks south of the former location. The new digs at 3728 West River Drive NW in downtown Comstock Park are six times bigger than the previous site.
“We needed a bigger space,” said owner Tiffany Cowart, a 2007 Comstock Park High School graduate who opened the pet grooming business in 2010. “We outgrew the other space quickly.”
The openness of the old location was also problematic, she said. The grooming and bathing stations were in the same room along with the counter at the entry. Sometimes the dogs got a little too excited when they saw their owners came in causing some commotion. Cowart said she tries to schedule cats when there were no other animals getting groomed.
The building Cowart now leases has a 1500 square foot floor with separate rooms for grooming, bathing, a holding area, and the lobby. There is a room designated as a self-service dog wash to open soon. Cowart has hired a trainer to offer dog training in the 1500 square foot basement. There are two groomers besides Cowart. She owned another pet salon in Cedar Springs, but closed that to focus more on the Comstock Park salon, and to give her more time to attend and compete in dog shows with her dogs.
