Owner & Certified Pet Groomer
Our resident, groomer, Lydia, has had experience with animals of all sizes, species, and temperaments!
Growing up, Lydia volunteered at wildlife sanctuaries, animal hospitals, and a zoo. While earning her bachelor's degree in business administration and management from the University of West Florida, Lydia worked as an assistant dog groomer and obedience trainer. Then, she took up a veterinary technician position at an animal hospital before obtaining her grooming certification from Penn Foster.
"As a child, I had dreams to become a veterinarian when I grew up, but I realized my passion lies in the field of pet grooming." Even though she enjoyed learning the medical side of pet care and nursing animals back to health, she really blossomed in the art of pet grooming!
Administrative Assistant & Bather in Training
Abby has also had experience with cats and dogs of all ages and sizes! Her love of animals first ignited while growing up with a veterinary technician mother. She has nursed kittens and fostered homeless cats, which she continues to do to care for our stray population!
She mainly assists "behind the scenes" but will be present for some appointments in the van as our groomer trains her in brushing and bathing.
Whether we locate at your home, office, or a public setting, we are here to meet the needs that are best for you and your dirty dog.
Wondering where the inspiration behind the dog in our logo came from? Groomer Lydia's childhood Golden Retriever, Sassy!
We wish you guys could have met her, but this is how Lydia is able to share her sweet spirit with you all. She inspired young Lydia to become the ulti -mutt dog lover and to dedicate her life to helping all four - legged friends since they all help us so much.
Rest in Peace, Sassy girl, the original dirty dog!
