Heather has been a professional dog groomer since 2002 and came to us Spring 2020. Her experience comes from working her family’s dog grooming salon in the Twin Cities. She also has experience in dog obedience training as well. Her love for animals has been life long and stems from her childhood. She grew up with standard poodles that her family bred, raised, groomed, and showed. She has always had a passion for working with animals and has always been a poet of the dog world for much of her life.
Heather currently has one rescue dog, a cute litter terrier/poodle mix named Willy. She strives to make grooming as stress free as possible for an enjoyable grooming experience. She believes it is a must to have a great deal of patience and trust, as well as the ability to read dogs’ body language. She takes great pride in her work and is very much for quality over quantity. Heather believes that there is always something new to learn in the grooming industry and strives to learn new ways to keep your dogs happy, clean, and healthy!
