About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I take great pride in my work and it shows not only in the actual grooming style but mainly in the demeanor of the pet when the owner picks up. They are calm and happy!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Obviously I enjoy the meeting the animals and creating a unique style for each of them. Talking with the owners and getting a feel for the pets' character and likes and dislikes is always important. I've cultivated many friendships along the way and still remain in contact with clients who 'gave me my start' :~)

    Deborah has been grooming our miniature poodle for over three years and we have boarded him with her once. She is friendly, professional, punctual, answers requests for appointments within a reasonable time, and does a very good job. I would not hesitate to refer other dog owners to her.

    Deborah is very professional and I can see she truly cares about my dogs. I have two labradoodles which can be challenging to groom. I love the fact that she does this from her home where she can focus on just my two babies without other dogs or distractions around which can be very stressful for my dogs. I would highly recommend her if you want your dogs to have a fun pleasant experience and a good grooming experience. ;o)

    Deborah has got to be the best groomer I have taken my Schnauzer to. She grooms one dog at a time so she is never rushed. What is most important "Chiquito" is not reluctant to being with her. I would recommend Deborah. A true pet lover!

    We have 2 little Papillons and they don't need regular grooming like some breeds, but they do need their nails trimmed. Deborah comes to my house to do them. She is wonderful with Reggie and Toby and they really like her which is most important. I am disabled and it's hard for me to get out with both of them, so I really appreciate her coming here and her prices are very reasonable.

    Thank you, Sally. I always enjoy seeing Toby and Reggie. They are full of energy and personality!

    Since we adopted Charlie in November 2011 he has only known one groomer ... Deborah. Not exactly sure what we wanted for Charlie, we left it up to Deborah to suggest ways to groom him based on his profile. She has done a wonderful job explaining and showing us different options. Every time we bring Charlie over we are excited about seeing the results. And Charlie appears to be happy when visiting also. I feel Deborah pays attention to detail and actually builds a relationship with Charlie like he's part of the family.

    Thank you, Jeffrey. I appreciate your taking time from your busy schedule and for your kind words :)

    Deborah really cared about my cat's well being and took extra steps to make sure she was comfortable. I am very impressed and will definitely recommend her to everyone.

    Awesome lady and super groomer. Our Shih Tzus have been groomed by her for three years. We have also used her boarding services and by far thee best we have ever had. Don't give it a second thought ~~ she is the best.

    I was referred to Deborah by a close friend of mine. I've taken my Mini-Schnauzer to several groomers in the area, Deborah is the best by far. She is professional and provides a clean environment for your pet. I can see that Deborah loves what she does and takes pride in her work. My baby looks great! Thank you Deborah!


How did you get started doing this type of work?
In 1995 back in Georgia I owned 4 Bichons. It requires a great degree of skill to groom a Bichon to show standards. After repeated disappointments with various area groomers, I decided the old adage was true..."if you want something done right, do it yourself". And I did :~)
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A man brought his frightened matted smelly Shih Tzu to me. The coat was SO matted to the skin, I had to use a surgical blade to remove. The dog became agitated and seemed to be in pain around the hips and tail. Turns out he was infested with maggots who had rubbed his skin nearly raw!!! I have never seen a dog happier to be groomed. Although he left my home bald, he had come out of his shell and left happy with tail held high and wagging.
