Our Philosophy

We have a belief in our grooming that every dog should be loved and treated as they were one of our own. In most cases our clients and their dogs do become part of our families. When we say our clients are FurrLife we truly mean it!

Meet Our FurrLife Team!

We are family owned and operated from the inside out. We treat all of our clients as if they were our own family! We understand that just like us, every pet is unique and want their experience to be customized just for them. FurrLife was established in 2015, but all together we have been part of the community over 40 years.

We thank you for trusting us with your beloved furry friends FurrLife!


Jennifer Anderson

CEO/Groomer since 1993

Jennifer has been in the industry over 27 years professionally. Her love of animals has been there since the day she was born. She grew up with grandparents that raised and showed boxers and a mother that raised Collies and Great Danes. There are many childhood memories she has of spending a summer day over at a neighbors brushing out and bathing their dogs in their front yards. It is no coincidence that her love and passion of grooming has expanded into her adulthood. Jen graduated from Twin Cities School of Pet Grooming back in '93. After that she spent the next few years grooming show poodles, cairn terriers, schnauzers and many other breeds. She helped establish the grooming departments for Pet Food Warehouse in Minnetonka and Brooklyn park back in '94/'95 and enjoyed every second of it. Owning her own place was always her dream, which finally became possible in 2015 when FurrLife was born. To be able to work alongside her family has become such a blessing. She loves being able to share her love and passion of grooming with her children and her clients. Jen also is a certified Canine Massage Therapist as of 2019.
