Gretchen Ricketts

Owner

The concept and drive behind this unique business is a long-standing passion and vision of Gretchen’s that has evolved over 40 years as an animal lover having personally experienced poor-quality product purchases for her own pets.

As a Licensed Veterinary Technician during the 1990’s, Gretchen witnessed far too many pets that were accidentally harmed by the products their well-meaning owners provided for them.

Combine this with a desire to help curtail the waste and pollution that is destroying our world, and knowing what pet-parents expect for exceptional service in the local area, and you can easily see how Bow Wow Meow Boutique was born. Gretchen is also a proud US Air Force Veteran and offers all Veterans a 20% discount every day.

Cameron

Cameron Bowery

Senior Groomer

Cameron’s love of dogs started at an early age when she would visit her aunt in Alabama who had Standard Poodles with fancy haircuts. The love blossomed with visits to family with coon hounds and terrier farm dogs that just loved to play, and finally, family pets that were constant companions. Venturing into the animal world started with a first job in a veterinary clinic, cleaning kennels and assisting the doctor and in-house groomer as needed. Over the years, working in emergency animal hospitals, shelters, doing behavior work with shelter dogs, working with goats, caring for farm animals, grooming in a shop as well as mobile since 2011, and ongoing education of canine nutrition makes Cameron an all-around holistic resource for pets. Trained in Pet CPR and First Aid, know that your pets are in great hands as she strives to make even the most scared animal relax for their grooming experience. Bonus points if you want a “Town and Country” on your poodle! Look for canine massage services to be added for even more comfort for your pet. *will also groom some cats*

Cammaria "Cammy" Nixon

Groomer

Cammy is in her early 20’s and has loved animals for as long as she can remember.  She went to college for a year after graduating high school in Greenwood. During that year in college her interest in grooming was piqued due to two older cousins that were established in the profession.  Cammy has been grooming for 3 years now and loves every minute of it. Outside of work she loves on her rescue pup, Graves, and her multitude of fish. In her free time, she loves to curl up with a good book and her pup.

Savannah and Dolly

Savannah Robertson

Groomer

Savannah was born and raised in Indianapolis and moved to the Fountain Square area 10 years ago.  In 2009, Savannah graduated from Franklin Central High School and continued her education in the healthcare field, receiving her CNA and Medical

Assistant certification in nursing. She has worked in the medical field for the past 10 years and has always had a passion to care for people.  Savannah has loved animals ever since she can remember and had her first dog to care for when she was very young.  She now has two Labrador Retrievers and enjoys taking care of them so much that she decided to pursue a grooming certificate from the Grooming School of Indiana, where she graduated in November of 2019.  Since graduating, she has given birth to a beautiful two-legged baby boy and is excited to put her grooming skills to work at Bow Wow Meow Boutique on a part time basis that will allow her flexibility to raise her son.  In her spare time, she loves spending time outdoors and with her family and friends.

Gabrielle Ricketts

Part-Time Staff - Social Media

Gabby has been helping her Mom navigate social media since she was allowed to have a Facebook page when she turned 13 years old, 8 years ago.  She officially went on the payroll in early 2020 because she was saving us a lot of time and deserved to be rewarded for her creativity, organization skills, and attention to details.  When she's not attending classes or studying at ISU, she's most likely busy planning some sort of function for her sorority, teaching middle school youth at her church, vlogging, blogging, posting or playing with her cats; Adrienne and Rocky.
