How did you get started in this business?

Kelly's love of animals, since she was a little girl, helped her decide to open a new chapter in her life. Being in the corporate world for many years, she decided to leave it all behind to pursue her passion; animals. She has owned every thing from a snake to a horse. From grooming her own poodles, as a young girl, to her father owning a K9 security business; she has loved dealing with animals from a young age. It is just in her blood and is a passion.


What types of customers have you worked with?

We work with folks from all ages and demographics. We have locals and people that drive across town for our services. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Make sure you vet them out. From working with different groomers, there are some horror stories of how dogs are being treated in grooming shops. We pride ourselves on having compassionate staff that cares for our furry friends. Go with your gut; watch your dogs demeanor. Most dogs shake and act like they are scared when they go to the groomer, so that is normal. No matter how much I love on them, some Just shake the whole time they are on the table. Just think of the experience; you get a bath; they mess with your hinny; then a loud, high powered blow dryer gets cranked up; they try to blow your fur off; then they ask you to stand on a table and put buzzy and snippy things on you; they mess with your feet and ears, which you absolutely hate. It is just awful.

So, don't mistake common reactions with abuse. Do watch you dog's interaction with the groomer. You should be able to tell between a little scared and absolutely terrified. I have dogs that shake when they get here, stop shaking while they ate there and start shaking again as soon as mom gets there to pick them up. It just happens. But when you get those that jump and dance when they see you, now that makes your day. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Is the place clean? Is the staff cordial and friendly? Does my dog come home clean and look good?
