Interview with boutique saloon owner Alena Goncharova

How did an idea to create beauty saloon for dogs and cats came?

This is my childhood dream! From age of 8 I wanted to become a veterinarian, open animal business and name it by my first cat name – Monica. And so, all this time I was moving towards my goal: I graduated from university, received veterinary diploma. Then ideas and thoughts about business start to appear. So, I decided to make beauty saloon for animals. I prepare the project for a very long time and thoroughly, study every little thing, improve my skills in domestic animals grooming and dermatology. I wanted to create place where everything would be at the highest level both for animals and owners – experienced masters, best equipment and tools, cosmetics from leading manufacturers, premium service with reasonable prices and much more, as well as a cozy corner where owners could drink coffee and look through magazines, while their beloved four-legged pet are injected with beauty. And, I hope I create such a place.
