I believe that grooming and caring for dogs requires technical skill and behavioral understanding. In addition to formal grooming training, I have had the opportunity to learn on the job from professionals in the worlds of dog breeding, training and grooming. These experiences allowed me to further my understanding of dogs, and develop my skills as a groomer. However, our dogs are not only pets, but family members. Such a distinction requires pet care providers to connect with basic needs, as well as the deeper emotional and personal characteristics of each dog. Every dog has a different life story. Understanding this allows me to tailor services to your individual dog, and provide the best overall care.
I currently have two of my own dogs, "Agatha" a Jack Russell mix, and "Chowder" a smooth coated Brussell Griffon.
Makayla is a seasoned groomer with well over half a decade’s worth of experience in the professional working world with both small and large breed dogs as well as cats of every temperament; her dedication to the needs of animals extends far beyond the parlor. Makayla has always had a strong bond with the furry friends in her life; at an early age she helped care for the English Lop rabbits that she and her father would show at conventions. Every night when she gets home, she’s greeted by her standard poodle Olivia and by her two cats Clementine and Kodak. Makayla works hard to ensure that every animal she works with looks amazing and is treated with respect throughout the grooming process.
