Plush Pups Boutique and Spa opened their business with enthusiasm to cater to pet owners in the Riverside area. Roxy Hernandez, Co-Owner with fiancé Vince Elric have anticipated their part in making an impact in the Riverside community with the art of pet grooming.
Hernandez was raised in the Riverside area in a household full of pets and desired to start a business to stay close to the clients in the community she grew up in.
“It is a dream come true to have opened up a shop in my hometown doing what I love most. We wanted to be in an environment where we were familiar. We also wanted to be close to shops in the area where our customers could go while they waited for their pets”, said Hernandez.
Hernandez stated her passion has always been animals and desired a career in the field. Shortly after her grooming career began in the winter of 2009, her primary goal was to open her own pet grooming shop.
Many factors go into the fulfillment of Hernandez’s career, from the process of grooming pets to interacting with her customers.
“I love meeting new people and interacting with their pets on a daily basis. I enjoy being able to get to know new dogs and cats seeing all their different personalities. I also love getting a super messy pup on the table, it is like a blank canvas for a painter. I am so eager when it comes to the pet’s haircut and it is fun being able to get creative. It makes my day when I see my client’s expressions when they see their pet’s new cut”, said Hernandez.
Hernandez thrives to build genuine relationships with her customers and is committed to the satisfaction with the end result of their pet grooming needs. “We want every client to be 100 percent comfortable with our shop and work. I want my clients to be happy with the end result and feel educated on maintaining their pet’s coats as well as the pets well-being.”
Community is a key perspective for the owners of Plush Pup Boutique and Spa as they hope to partner with local shelters and rescues in the near future. “Our hopes are to work with local shelters and rescues in the adoption process. We want to provide our services to help pets in need of a forever home” said Hernandez.
