Nancy Guinn

Dog Krazy, 5 Locations In Virginia

Piglet the English Bulldog inspired Nancy Guinn to open the first Dog Krazy location. Thirteen years later, she has opened five in total, with help from her husband Chris and their menagerie of pets: pig Jimmy Dean, bird Max, cat Ozzie, and dogs Stirfry Fatguy, Pork Wonton, Sushi and Tala. Nancy also finds time to consult with customers and fellow pet business owners alike on pet nutrition, in which she holds a 500-hour degree.
