I love grooming doodles! My number one request from doodle owners is "Don't make it look like a poodle!" Doodle Do's can be as varied as doodles themselves! Short, functional field cuts or long and natural. Coiffed or scruffy. As a professional all-breed groomer and Certified Master Groomer, I understand how important it is to feel confident and worry free when it comes to the Dog Groomer you choose. But what really sets my services apart from the rest of the industry is my individualized one-on-one approach and receptiveness to the unique needs of each client.
