Kevyn Beauregard - Dog Groomer
Hi! My name is Kevyn and I’ve been grooming dogs for over 6 years.
I strive to make grooming as positive an experience as possible for my clients and am always trying to learn to be better at what I do. The safety and well-being of your furbaby is always my top priority, and making them their cutest self makes it fun! I love building solid relationships with regular clients based on compassion and respect and finding the best way to work with each dog’s unique personality.
I’m excited to get to know you and your pup!
Erin Horton - Grooming Manager
Hi there! I’m Erin. I have loved dogs my whole life. I worked at a dog boarding facility for almost 5 years before taking a break to go to beauty school. After a while away I realized how much I missed being around dogs all day and I am so glad to be back working with them again! I can’t wait to meet all of you and your furry friends!
