Hi! My name is Jan Lewis...
...and I have been professionally grooming dogs and cats now since 2001. After a lot of soul searching I realized that I would truly be happier working for myself again. I've always had a hard time just whipping out a large quantity of dogs a day that aren't what I'd call a detailed nice groom in order to get a bigger paycheck. It's just not my style...I take a lot of pride in my work and "Quality versus Quantity" is what my grooming is all about. I'm not into speed "zoom groom" jobs. I'm very gentle, artistic, detailed and I take time to go over every detail with my clients. I truly love grooming, it is my passion and I strive to make every customer happy. I have worked for small shops as well as a large Vet Hospital and have gained a lot of experience over the years, also have attended many groom shows, seminars. I can be by continuing to educate myself on the latest techniques and to keep learning constantly.
If you are looking for a Gentle Professional Groomer then please give us a call. I have worked with
many senior pets and special rescues as well. I treat every pet as if it were one of my very own.
I will take the time to go over your pet with you and explain what is necessary to maintain the look you are wanting. I want you to feel comfortable with leaving your loved pet with us.
Working for a large vet Hospital helped me become a better groomer in many ways. I'm even more detailed then ever when it comes to ear hair pulling, ear cleaning, anal glands, gentle natural shampoo's, natural flea control alternatives etc...also I can usually find (not diagnose) but refer you to a VET if necessary because I have seen enough of whatever I may discover when working on your pet that other groomers may not have as much experience in. I have very high standards and every groomer that I have working for us does as well.
I have a special place in my heart for POODLES! I really enjoy grooming Poodles, Shihtzu's, Lasha Apso's, Yorkies, mixes and the smaller breeds. Yes, they take more time then just doing the big bath & brush dogs, but to me they are twice as much fun because I can get artistic when it comes to grooming them.
Each dog and cat is provided with a fresh bowl of water and a clean warm soft blanket in their crate. Also dogs will be taken potty a few times and not just left sitting for hrs. in their cage expecting to wait until you arrive. If you'd like you can bring some food for them as well.
There is no extra charge for having to drop them off in the morning before you go to work and leaving them in our care until your shift is over. We are happy to care for them in order to make it easier for you to get them groomed during life's busy schedule. You can drop them off in the morning as early as 8am and pick them up by 5pm.
This has been a dream of mine that I'm finally going to pursue. I lost my mother to Breast Cancer having realized "LIFE IS SHORT" I'd better get on with my dreams! She was a big inspiration to me and still is. She was my Hero and now is my ANGEL...and I hope to be your Dogs "GROOMING ANGEL"
These are pics of my first grooming salon that opened myself in 2007 with just $100 and a lot of determination! We've come a long way! I now have 9 employees! and have moved to a retail salon that is over 3000 square feet!
