Hi, I'm Samantha Hoffmann
Over 10 Years of Animal Handling Experience
With a lifelong passion for animals and a strong commitment to their well-being, I decided to make them my life’s purpose. While in high school at St. Joseph Hill Academy, I started my animal endeavor through rescue. I helped found an after-school group called “PAWS” where we as students came together to volunteer our time and collect donations for local animal rescues. Upon graduating, I attended SUNY Cobleskill and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science with a Concentration in Canine Studies in 2014. Afterwards, I attended the American Academy of Pet Grooming and became a certified Pet Groomer. In the fall of 2017, with the support of my husband and family we opened up BYOP Grooming and Pet Supplies. As a family business, commitment and dedication to our customers is our utmost concern. We pride ourselves in offering a comprehensive pet experience to our clients.
BYOP wouldn't be here without Love of Family..
Our Grooming Shop and Pet Supply Store grew out of our love for all animals. We understand the special bond between pets and their owners, and we want to encourage that bond through each and every visit.
Our family has been built on animal love. My husband and I met at SUNY Cobleskill, where I graduated with a Bachelors in Animal Science with a concentration in Canine Studies. Our relationship grew out of love for my (now our) animals. Even on the coldest days we brought them for hikes in the trails and fetch in the fields. Having BYOP is a dream come true; we can now spread our love and knowledge to everyone who stops in.
Pet ownership is a rewarding responsibility, and with this in mind we continue to make sure that everyone who comes to us understands the obligations and products required to keep a happy and healthy pet.
