My services definitely stand out due to my passion & patience toward the pet + aim to achieve your endgame image on how you want your pup to look . I also like to explore my creativity & run into your imagination a little bit for customers who want to dip into Asian fusion grooming & / creative art such as pet friendly hair dye - chalk / bows & ties .
I most enjoy the experiences I get in meeting a bunch of different breeds , connecting w/ the animals & making them as comfortable as possible . One of my favorite things about grooming as well is getting to know the pet parents & building that relationship & trust .
i earned my credidation from Petco & I was working w/ the company for about a year & a half . I ended as an assistant salon manager before I decided to venture off on my own to explore my creativity . I have started an Instagram page for some of my work @PAWSOMEGROOMS_ as well . I specialize in terriers & poodle breeds . I own a husky myself & she’s very wooly . So if a hard long thourough brush out is what you’re looking for , you’ll for sure get that w/ me ! I’m also fairly knowledgeable in the field of nutrition for your pal to keep the skin & coat silky smooth .
Another great aspect I take from dog grooming is the constant learning . Grooming standards change all the time & it is important to keep up .
Very friendly and good with my dog
Glenda is a total pro. She not only does a great job with the actual services, but she is also highly compassionate and patient, which goes a long way with me. I have been loyal to her since I took my dog in for his first haircut. She was also a great resource giving me advice about other dog-related things other than just grooming. I would recommend her to anyone that would listen. 😊 Dunkel and I ❤️ Glenda!
Glenda is awesome and she is very knowledgeable about her job. She treated my baby, fudge, like her own dog. I highly recommend her to groom your doggies. She does home service.
Glenda is amazing. My white Standard Poodle, Carlo the Magnificent loves her. She is an outstanding groomer, the best!
Taking a Client History /
" Can You Tell Me A Little About Your Dog ? "
You never get a second chance to make a first impression , I feel it's important to get off on the right paw—er , foot with first-time grooming clients .
Communication & preparation are key to making that first grooming experience a good one .

Also I will run something what is called a 7 point check on your pup to check everything such as his / her ( nose , ears , eyes , nails / paws , skin / coat & ask health history ) . Just so I know all the ins & outs of your pet such as diabetics , lumps & bumps , dew claws , fatty tumors etc )
i am a SAFETY FIRST groomer & will always make sure I give your dog a comfortable spaw day .
I got my credidation for grooming from Petco in 2018 . It was a 12 week coarse where I learned all the rules , safety procedures , techniques & breed grooms in San Francisco . I worked w/ the company for about a 1 1/2 & ended my run there as an assistant manager in a salon . Ive also dabbled a little bit on Asian fusion which came w/ self practice .

My story is that I was a Medical Assistant that was in love w/ animals ( wrong area of work , right ? Lol ) I owned an Alaskan Husky & late 2017 , WE GOT PREGNANT !! She had her litter of 8 adorable & healthy babies on January 21st , 2018 & it woke me up from actually working in a field that wasn’t a passion to me internally . I got blessed w/ the opportunity to do dog training & eventually transferred departments into grooming . Stayed over a year , earned a skill set & now I’m venturing off on my own as an entrepreneur & expanding - exploring my creativity .
I’ve encountered a variety of different clients in my time . Everywhere from first time puppy cuts , to elder dogs who have a problem standing for a long period of time . I love having conversations w/ pet parents as well & getting to have a bond w/ them to show my bubbly personality .
I love doing creative grooms especially for peo ple who enter / visit pet festivals / competitions . I’ve done a fair share of them & I enjoy having someone’s imagination come to life for how their pet could look like !
i especially love working w/ poodles !
Don’t be afraid to ask questions !
Ask questions like -
— Besides shampoo / haircuts - what other services does a groomer provide .
See if they have the proper tools & knowledge for removing mats , trimming nails & cleaning ears . Professional groomers can make you aware of ear infections , teeth decay & skin problems .
— May you stay & watch your dog get groomed .
Your own nerves can make your dog more anxious , but it’s not unreasonable to want to observe , at least the first time . It’s also a good opportunity to observe your dog’s behavior for future visits , but if it comes to the safety of the groom & he / she moves too much / doesn’t act accordingly then I may need to ask pet parent to step away .
— Do you have experience w/ a specific dog breed .
Some breed have particular grooming needs , so you may want to seek out a groomer who has experience with your specific breed . Ask whether he / she knows what the breed standard is and whether they can perform the correct hair cut for your breed .
— How much will the grooming fee cost & if there are any hidden fees .
It shouldn’t be your first concern I personally feel , but it’s a question you want to ask upfront to avoid any sticker shock . The cost of a dog grooming can vary by dog size & coat type , as well as what services are included in a standard bath / groom . Some dogs also take longer to groom than others . A groomer will be able to quote you a rate once they are able to assess your dog’s individual needs . I have a flat rate for the weight & hair texture of your baby & there are NO hidden fees . I will always try my best to work w/ you . Prices only change if there is any additional works you would like done ( Ex ; Mat removal , hair dye , bows - ties etc )
The realistic behavior of their dog when it comes to getting things done such as nail trims / haircuts . Ask how / what we do as groomers to help prevent stressful situations for your dog .
Ask / show pics of how you would like your dog to look like afterwards .
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND that photos found online VIA google / magazines that some of those photos may be edited & / the hair texture from that dog to yours may be completely different & not approachable at all .
