Shelley has been grooming dogs professionally since 2001. She is AKC Safety Certified and a Certified Canine Esthetician. She is also an active member of the International Society of Canine Cosmetologists.
Shelley’s grooming always begins with an attention to detail. She likes to learn about the dog’s lifestyle and personality while taking into consideration the client’s requested look. She looks for various skin and coat issues which could be improved to benefit the dog with the added bonus of a great look!
If, during the grooming process there is something she’s doing that the pet does not like, she looks into the possible reasons; Is he arthritic? Are his feet itchy? She takes this practiced consideration into her work.
What truly makes her day is helping and grooming dogs with disabilities or chronic issues. For her it’s personal, as she cared for her dog, Piggy, whom became disabled and required a wheelchair, later in life. She understands in a very real way just how important our dogs are to us and just how important it is to give them the best treatment possible.
