We recently relocated to Bluffton to be with family. Our kids, Gavin (5) and Ruby (1) are so excited to see their grandma and grandpa every day!

We met working in a corporate grooming salon. Since then, we have built our grooming experience in vet offices, private salons and a larger company offering mobile pet grooming for the first time. That’s when we fell in love with mobile grooming.

Our first dog, Lexi, came with us to work since she was a puppy and would still get stressed out from being around a lot of dogs and all of the hustle and bustle of a traditional pet salon. The quick, one-on-one service that mobile grooming offers made a huge difference for her. Lexi never got stressed out at all.

We opened our own mobile dog grooming business in Northern Virginia. After a very successful four years there, we decided to adventure to beautiful Thousand Oaks, CA. The perfect weather with proximity to the mountains and beach made it a great place to live, but we missed being with family. Not being able to visit with them like we had planned because of the pandemic, and having a baby during that same time, really highlighted what is important to us. It was time to get back to east coast with family.

While in Northern Virginia and California, we worked with local rescue groups and hope to have the same opportunity here in Bluffton, SC.

As groomers we strive to create a relaxing and safe environment for the dogs we have the pleasure of getting to know. We grow bonds with the dogs we pamper and love them like our own. We each have 13 years of experience working with dogs and take pride in understanding the best ways to make grooming an enjoyable experience for you and your pet.
