What a journey!
As a child, I told my parents that some day I would have a business of my own and work for no one but myself.
At 25 years old, my inner child took the bull by the horns and I took a leap of faith. I am sincerely grateful to say, I've been in business since 2006.
While still in the 12th grade, I was enrolled into an apprenticeship program to learn how to train dogs.
From small to large dogs, all having different energy levels and behavioral issues.
I have trained, fostered and bred protection and sport dogs for over 15 years.
I had a great mentor and was able to gain experience controlling and calming aggressive dogs, trained basic obedience, and puppy classes.
I learned how to run a dog kennel business at the age of 18.
I went to a protection dog seminar and was asked to participate in a protection dog trial with my Belgian Malinois, without knowing about the trail or even specifically training for it, my dog and I won 1st place.
I signed up for a Canine Good Citizen class with my beloved Standard Poodle, Diva, and got certified by the American Kennel Club.
While training dogs, I signed up with a grooming school and spent several months learning next to a master groomer, how to handle and groom all breeds of dogs.
I then ventured off and became one of the head employees, and there too, I learned how to run a boarding and grooming facility.
I spent years gaining hands on experience in animal care, behavior, dog training and customer service.
I have owned pack of dogs of my own amongst other types of animal species. I also volunteer at a Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility to add to my animal handling experience.
My father was Native American and had a deep connection for animals that most people can't explain due to the spiritual connection that animals, spirit animals, and totem pole animals bring to ones soul of Native American culture.
My mom has a deep appreciation for all animals, and their well being as well, so the natural passion and understanding for all animals have definitely passed to myself.
Not only am I able to give haircuts to dogs, my training and experience gives me the ability to groom highly aggressive and anxious dogs that no one else can or is willing to do, due to the risks involved.
Over the years I have been able to detect medical issues with some of my client dogs. I suggested to go straight to the vet, and sure enough the dogs were diagnosed with cancer and other medical issues that needed to be addressed.
I also sell all sorts of beautiful crystals at my grooming shop. Besides animals, I have always been drawn to crystals, ancient medicine, healers, astrology, nature and peace.
Moral of the story, do what you love to do. If you're not happy or you're bored with what you're doing every day of your life, stop wasting your precious time.
YOU are in control of your own life, your own happiness, your own story.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my background and experience.
I appreciate all of my amazing clients and my on going support.
Proud to have been chosen #5 best grooming shops in Washington State
