My name is Janice Kanzler and I am an animal lover. I have been working with and caring for animals for 35+ years.  I am a veterinary technician. I have an AAS in Veterinary Technology from SUNY Delhi and a BS in Organizational Management from Nyack College.

In 1996, I received my grooming certificate from the Nash Academy of Animal Arts in New Jersey. I opened a grooming business at Center Rutland Veterinary Services in Rutland, Vermont and also started McPet Petsitting Services. In 2011, I opened Groomin’ on 202 and also started LuckyPaws Pet Sitting services.

I live in Newburgh on GnomeAcres Farm with my husband, Jim and our 3 dogs, Aspen, a border collie/lab; Clyde, a Gordon setter; Schmoe, a miniature schnauzer and a variety of chickens and ducks.

The Inspiration


Mack always wore a bandanna. But no matter how many times I would tighten that bandanna, he would lose it in the yard. I got to thinking ‘how can I design a bandanna that he wouldn’t lose in the yard?’. I tried Velcro, I tried snaps, I tried the over-the-collar bandanna, but they just weren’t it. Then it hit me, he never lost his collar.

With the bandanna side release buckle system, bandannas will not be lost again!
