Owner/Certified Dog Groomer/Certified Creative Groomer/Pet CPR Certified
Toni has had a love for animals her entire life. After graduating college majoring in Human Services/Addictions Counseling, she made the decision to return to her passion, working with animals. She has had a lifetime of experience with animals big and small. She started in the grooming industry at 19 as a Shed-X tech working for Noah’s Animals Hospitals in the area, she was a certified small animal specialist at Petco, she has worked at Shadeland Animal hospital as a vet tech and groomer’s assistant, she spent summers caring for her horses (grooming, cleaning stalls, showing, riding) She is constantly continuing her education through seminars, research, and contact with others in the industry.
She is an internationally certified dog groomer through JKL Grooming Academy for cat and dog grooming and has been grooming professionally for 7 years. She is also a certified Creative Groomer, CPR certified, and shop safety certified through AKC.
After working at other shops she became aware of the fact that the needs of senior, injured, and anxious pets were not being met, she was determined to create a place where the grooming experience did not have to be rushed or scary. She thrives to maintain a peaceful environment for your pet as well as her employees. Toni is very selective about who she employees and will not tolerate any type of mistreatment at any time or for any reason. She takes her love for animals seriously and she wants her clients to feel comfortable leaving their pets with her and her staff. Her pets are her kids and she knows how much your pets mean to you. Toni treats your pets like family and she loves seeing how happy they are when they are all clean and ready for their owner to return.
