Nina joined our grooming department in April 2017. She loves all breeds and sizes, a few favorites are Poodle, German Shepherd, Akita, Shih Tzu, Pit Bull and Bulldog. She loves Shih Tzu haircuts and has the most experience with Standard Poodles. The most rewarding part of grooming is the transformation of the dog and knowing that he feels much better and that you did a good thing! I love all fur friends and strive to make a positive difference in their lives!
