Who We Are

We Are Kind

Christine Judd worked 18 years in the optical field until she decided to learn the art of pet grooming.  In 2007, with the help of her husband, she opened Northern Pet Salon in Boyne City, MI.  She has continued growth every year due to the quality of care and continued knowledge that is given to each client.   Her heart for animals led her to open her barn to an equine rescue where she was a board member and ended as the Executive Director.  Christine immediately saw the power of the three words Pause Breathe Proceed.  She hopes to leave a legacy of kindness in this world.
