Karen started her career over 30 years ago, attending the Phoenix School of dog grooming, receiving a diploma with honors. She specializes in starting the puppy with grooming lessons, teaching good behaviors by positive rewards. Karen has lived her career in the greater Phoenix areas and enjoys grooming all breeds of dogs, and despite her size will take on the biggest and hairiest of dirty desert dogs. In her “spare” time she volunteers for Liberty Wildlife, fostering and feeding mostly baby bunnies. Karen is also committed to her family of a German Shepherd; Bronx, a Golden Retriever; Prescott, two Pomeranians; Tennessee and Hillbilly, and finally her birds, Sonny and Cher; a Cockatoo and Macaw.
She started her career in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she owned her own pet store. After selling her business, she moved to Reno, NV where she was voted “Best of Reno” groomer two years running as voted by clients.
Jennifer specializes in hand scissoring poodles but has the skill and expertise to make any breed look and feel great. She handles all dogs as if they were her own. Speaking of her own, she has a toy poodle, Freddie, a miniature poodle, Hershey and a standard poodle name Finnagain along with a golden retriever, Peggy Sue.
