Introduction: I am an in-home groomer who uses only professional equipment, shampoos and conditioners to bathe and groom your pet to your exacting specifications. I do specific breed cuts as well as pet trims, specializing in anxious, aggressive, elderly and/or handicapped pets (who would not do well in a salon) and their people. If you want to avoid the hurry and hubbub of a shop where your pet will wait in a crate and be subject to plenty of noise and confusion and quite often, rough treatment, then I'm what you're looking for. I do all my dogs one at a time, straight through with TLC. My services also include flea baths, tick removal, skunk baths, and puppy pampering. All quotes include nail clipping, ear cleaning and taxes. Generally, I'm not able to do dogs over 70 lbs., but anything up to that weight will do just great! My portable equipment includes a sturdy folding table with a safety arm and Groomer's Helper looper. I can set up in a very small space, usually a kitchen or basement area. In the summer I do many of my grooms in the garage or driveway (weather permitting!) I gladly accept cash, check and PayPal. At this time I don't have the ability to take debit or credit cards. Tips are always greatly appreciated for good service, but never required. Just like you, your pet feels better when it's clean and well groomed. Sometimes, folks let time get the best of them and don't realize that their BFF (best furry friend) is in need of some 'spa time'. I like to see the difference in a pet's demeanor when it's all spiffed up! It's amazing! Also, now that I have navigation tools on my phone, I like to travel and meet new people and get to know them through our mutual love of animals! Many of my clients become good friends.....:-)

She groomed my Maine Coon cat and did such a wonderful job. She was so good and made my cat feel very comfortable during the grooming process. I would highly recommend and will use her always.

Laura groomed my 17 year old kitty yesterday (domestic long hair cat) and I am beyond thrilled with Laura’s work. She patiently and flawlessly removed several knots in my cat’s fur and I am so pleased we did not need to go the “lion cut” route - I am not a fan of that. Thank you so muchLaura! Izzy looks so pretty now!

Laura is an exceptionally professional and thoughtful individual. Her expertise in this field is far superior, and she handled my dog, Spunky, as if he were her own.

I was very pleased with Laura. She was on time and you don't find on-time people like that now these days. She was knew exactly what she needed to do and did it. If I had any questions, she was able to answer them. Laura could handle Cuddles my cat who wasn't too pleased about the shaving. She's did a good job. I would recommend Laura to anyone who asked about a groomer. Thank you Laura. Sue
