Featured Groomers

Behind every beautiful pet groom is a dedicated and hardworking groomer. We are shining the spotlight on some of our wonderful groomers.

Encinitas – Marlenne
Background: “I knew from a young age that animals were a passion of mine. We always had animals growing up and I knew I would eventually work with them. I started out as bather in a grooming salon and loved it so much I decided to make grooming my career. My love for animals and artistic eye has allowed me to find my passion. For me grooming is rewarding in so many ways. However the most rewarding part is earning the trust and building a bond with each pet I groom. I consider myself a perfectionist and take pride in each and every pet I work with. Long story short…I love my job.”

Favorite Grooming Tool: Greyhound Comb/ Chunkers (shears)

Favorite Breed to Groom: Bichons

Oceanside – Ashley
Background: Ashley started grooming for her love of animals.

Favorite Grooming Tool: Dremmel

Favorite Breed to Groom: Doodles

Poway – Holly
Background: “Animals are my life. I live & work on a horse ranch in Lakeside. Mother to my daughter, Josey Jo, 20 years old. Since my whole life revolves around animals, grooming was a natural choice. I’ve been in the business 25+ years with never a dull moment. I enjoy every day with my pups and all their different personalities. I enjoy watching them strut out the door feeling clean and happy. My mission is to make grooming pleasant and fun for my pups and the right clip to match the family’s lifestyle.”

Favorite Grooming Tool: “One of my favorite tools is the force dryer because I love the big fluffy shedding dogs; your huskies, Samoyeds, Retrievers, etc.”

Favorite Breed to Groom: Setters

Halloween Safety Tips for Your Pets

As we approach the holidays the safety of pets is always top of mind with us. Halloween usually involves lots of chocolate, so we wanted to share some information with you regarding how toxic it can be to your pets.

New Boarding Short Form for Regulars

Remember our boarding form? That long one that’s two whole pages and you are required to fill out even though you’ve been here before? Well we heard your requests and we’ve got an answer! We now have a new boarding short form for our regulars called “Boarding Short Form – Activities & Services”. It’s only about half a page and just asks for some brief contact information and what services you would like for your pets stay. However, you must have boarded at your facility within the last six months.

We hope you will find this form easier and quicker to fill in. It’s available to download on our website. You can also ask for one at your favorite location.
