About this pro

I treat each ur baby different, depending on how they feel and how the do during grooming. Some fur babies need more attention and breaks verses other babies who can sit through a whole cut. I believe in giving the fur babies breaks in between cutting when they are too anxious, scared, or just need some off the table time.  Making sure each fur baby is safe and happy is the key to a successful groom! No restraints or force necessary. I don't believe in restraints they make the situation worse! 

Having the opportunity to make owners smile when they see there fur babies cut make my day. Every fur baby is different in there own way and are groomed there own way. Giving fur babies the love and clean up they deserve is a fulfilling moment in each day.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Getting to know the owner and the fur baby is important, and helps make things easier during the groom. Learning how the fur baby does with me, as well as the location of the groom.  Try to be as open and honest about everything that happens, and keep them updated through the groom. A basic meet and greet is helpful to get familiar with me and the fur baby. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Veterinary Assistant Diploma, Associate Veterinary Technician 1, Kennel Technician, and also Grooming. 

I have worked in many vets in Noth Carolina, handling all different breeds and senarios. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Instead of nit picking a price for every single thing it's easier to do a ball park range, more then one thing done during a groom can allow room for a cheaper price. Every groom is different. 


How did you get started in this business?

Originally raised on a farm taking care of a variety of animals, I learned how to save money and do my own work. I've also worked in many different vets, kennels, and boarding facilities where I also learned a lot of different things from health care to grooming. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with multiple different people. Each groom is different, some fur babies need more attention while grooming while others are more laid back. A lot of customers are regulars which I met throught the vet or by placing ads. I enjoy meeting new people!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I no longer work for a company for grooming, I don't believe in putting a wet dog in a metal crate with a large blow dryer up to the cage. I like to groom at lower levels, less room for error. Have seen way to many groomers walk to far from the table and dogs get hurt. Safe is much better for me and the fur baby. 


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

Best advise is to find a groomer your comfortable with and knows what they are doing. Be sure to ask every question possible. Look for a groomer who updates you and keeps you informed. 


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

How big your fur baby is?

Is your fur baby allergic to anything?

Is your fur baby aggressive?

What is your pay range?
