About Us 

According to legend, the Gryphon, a fierce mythical beast comprised of half eagle and half lion, represents loving kindness, wisdom and knowledge, amazing strength, protection and loyalty....and it is also my Family Crest. So it made sense to use it as a symbol of caring for your treasured family members with fur.

Emerald Gryphon is based on the belief that your pet's health, safety and happiness is most important to us. Our entire team is committed to meeting and enhancing those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

We are active with Greyhound rescue and have become addicted to these beautiful, gentle (and really aerodynamic) dogs affectionately referred to as Greyts......we have 4 of our own and we foster newly adopted Greyhounds and those still looking for their forever homes. At Emerald Gryphon, we have several years of professional experience with training dogs (and sometimes cats) in obedience and for Invisible Fence, as well as walking, boarding and sitting for dogs and cats. Our passion for animals and their well-being gave birth to Emerald Gryphon Dog Walking & More.

We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry. You have our guarantee that you will be happy and your pets will be thrilled.....or it may be the other way around! References happily provided.
