About the Owners
Danielle and Ross Hartill met at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Southern Utah. Danielle is originally from Little Falls, New Jersey and Ross is from Edinburgh, Scotland. They both shared a passion for animals and the outdoors. Danielle started as a Dog Groomer in Dogtown and Ross was a Dog Caregiver at Old Friends. Danielle and Ross were quickly promoted into Management Positions and enjoyed many years of working with and for the animals before heading to North Carolina to be closer to family.
They both shared a dream to have their own business that would involve working with animals and giving back to their local community. When Danielle & Ross relocated to the Charleston area to pursue their dream of living close to the beach, they knew they wanted to be small business owners. With Danielle’s skill set in grooming and Ross’ experience in management, they knew they could build a business focused on excellent & compassionate care for the animals and created Zen Dog Spa.
They soon recognized the need for quality pet care in the home, as well as dog walking and transport services, and decided to launch Zen Dog Pet Concierge.
Zen Dog is a vision, not only for the animals in their care but also building a positive Team of professionals who truly care and love animals. They promote Fear Free Grooming by giving every furry client a truly positive experience while in their care. Danielle and Ross are proud supporters of Pet Helpers Adoption Center and volunteer their time bathing and transporting dogs and building fences to support the Unchain Charleston Program.
They are excited to continue to grow and expand Zen Dog, while keeping the dogs of Charleston looking fabulous, providing excellent care in their parent’s absence, and giving back to this community that they now call home.
