About Us

Robin Peterson, Peaceable Pets

I’m Robin Grant – lifelong animal lover and pet owner. I’ve had dogs as long as I can remember – mixed breeds, German Shepherds, a miniature schnauzer, and hounds and hunting dogs when I was growing up, and Boston Terriers, a German Shepherd, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, a mixed breed, and a Boston Terrier/Pug mix as an adult.


I grew up on a small farm, and we had almost every animal you could – indoor and outdoor cats, gerbils, a rabbit, pigs, a cow, a goat, ponies, horses (no birds – my sister was allergic). I was the kid in high school who took care of the 40+ rats for the biology class. We even had a boa constrictor for a while.


I’m currently the proud owner of Lady, a Beagle/Lab mix;  and Teeka, a “Bug” (Boston/Pug cross). I’m a native of Michigan (the Lansing area), and have lived in Ann Arbor since 1989. I started Peaceable Pets in 2004.


I work closely with my team leaders to make sure that you’re comfortable entrusting your pets to them, and that they’re confident in their ability to care for your home and your animals. 


All Peaceable Pets team members are bonded and insured.
