She started at very young age bringing home hurt and orphaned critters to nurse back to health.

MINDY IS A PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED, CERTIFIED DOG GROOMER
MINDY IS A CERTIFIED DOG TRAINER
I have created a small relaxed grooming studio in my home where I do all the grooming and only have one dog in at a time (unless they come with a fellow furry friend). This environment is great for dogs that get stressed while being groomed or being around other dogs. I take the time each dog needs for their groom. Each dog and family are different, I work with each pet owner to make a haircut that suites your pet and your needs.
I use only the highest quality products.
I welcome all dog breeds from small up to 80 pounds.
A full groom includes a tearless facial shampoo, a double-wash bath and hands-on dry. A customized haircut, gentle ear cleaning, paw-pad trim, nail trim, brush-out and sanitary clip if breed appropriate.
* Grooming prices depend on the size, breed of the dog and condition of the coat
For those big shedders I also offer a special deshedding service, ask for information and pricing
Nail trimming and nail grinding
I do not do anal gland expression, I feel your veterinary team should do it.
Dogs with extremely matted hair, very thick coats or temperamental personalities may be subject to supplementary charges if additional time and extra care is required. If a coat is very matted I will suggest it be clipped instead to avoid causing pain or discomfort to you dog.
I offer private lessons for puppies and dogs. I use force free training methods which will strengthen your relationship and that your dog will love.
Do you need help with your puppy and want to get started with training? Do you have a dog that needs some work on their manners? Call me and I can make a training plan tailored to your needs.
