Meet the Groomers!
Shelby is originally from California and was raised in a home that could be easily described as a small zoo, surrounded by many kinds of animals ranging from saltwater fish, small mammals and reptiles, to cats and dogs. This experience and love for animals led to an early desire to work with them. Upon graduating high school, she decided to become a pet groomer and attended school at American Grooming Academy run by Master Groomer Angela Clark and earned her certification as an Advanced Pet Stylist. Shelby began grooming dogs in 2013 and cats in 2016. She is Dog and Cat CPR Certified as of 2018 and is working toward becoming a master groomer! Shelby has worked for both corporate stores and mom and pop shops, and found that she likes the feel of a small business more because she can connect with her clients on a more personal level. Shelby’s favorite part of her job is to pamper and make dogs and cats feel and look wonderful! She loves to offer a safe, and relaxing environment so that grooming can be a positive experience for her clients, pets and people alike. She knows the importance of this because she herself is the proud parent of a beautiful Australian Cattle Dog named Maisey and two handsome cats, named Haku and O'Malley.
Shelby is available for dog and cat grooms Sunday-Wednesday by appointment.
Lyndsey was born in California and raised here in Bellingham. She has never known a life without animals, growing up with cats, dogs, birds, chickens, ducks, fish, frogs, and other small animals. She knew she wanted to spend her life working with animals, but knew the heartbreaking work of the veterinary field wasn't for her. In 2009, she was thrown into the grooming world when she applied as a cashier at PetSmart, but was offered a position as a bather instead. Shortly afterwards, she attended their grooming academy and became a certified groomer. In 2013, she decided to move to smaller, private owned salons where she began to really fall in love with her career. Lyndsey loves that her profession blends helping animals in need and utilizing her artistic talents, doing fun cuts and colors. She is the proud parent of Koen the Border Collie, Kyzer the Aussie-Shepherd mix, and Rufus the chinchilla.
Lyndsey is currently taking dog appointments Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday.
