Meet your groomers

IMG_8876Hi! My name is Allie, I’m so glad to see you are interested in my paw spa. I have always loved animals and from a very young age I knew I was going to work with them. My grandmother owns a rescue, and my mother groomed for over 12 years. My knowledge of dogs goes beyond the books, I have learned through experience how to care and understand an animal. Working for a rescue inspired me to read about animal behaviors and study the way they interact with humans as well as other animals. I am currently studying and learning more and more about animals each day. 

Learning how to groom on rescues has blessed me with the patience to groom any dog despite their challenging behavior. All of my clients are my babies! I create a bond with each pup that sits on my table and learn what they like and dislike. I want my customers to feel like they are leaving their furchildren in good hands, so I make each experience  as comfortable as possible for everyone involved. As well as providing a comfortable environment I also bring a part of my own lifestyle into my salon.

I have studied intensely on GMO’s, Parabens, and general chemicals. I am very self conscious of what I put in or on my body, so of course I am also concerned what goes on your pups. All of my products are paraben free, organic, and some are even homemade. By doing this I hope to bring down risks of cancer, tumors, and skin problems. 1 in every 5 dogs has cancer, my belief is the chemicals in the food, treats, and cleansing products. Therefore my small contribution of organic products gives me hope I can reduce this risk in some of my clients. My hope is you will give my services a try and let me make having a pet easier!

IMG_8878Hi! My name is Rielly. I have been grooming both dogs and cats for several years and spend a lot of time continuing my education to get the best up to date knowledge on grooming. I started out grooming cats before dogs at a luxury holistic cat grooming facility in Los Angeles. From there, I found a passion for working with animals by making them look cute and feel comfortable. I’ve gained a lot of handling experience with a range of cat behaviors from working at a cat exclusive shop. I have also gone to many seminars for dog grooming to learn all about different breed trims, handling excercises, creative techniques and most importantly the science behind the skin and coat. I am CPR and First Aid certified for dogs and cats and have taken both poodle and terrier specific classes. 

 
My specialty is poodle trims and asian fusion hair cuts. I compete in grooming competitions with my standard poodle and practice all different poodle trims with my standard poodle and my toy poodle. 
 
I also have a lot of experience with all variations of doodles and have taken classes on different trims for different types of doodle hair. 
 
I use gentle techniques and natural shampoos to make sure your dog feels their best after their appointment with me!
