As owner/operator of a professional pet grooming salon, I’d like to showcase some of the
different aspects of the shop. Back in 1993, I volunteered at a no-kill animal shelter nearby.
The first day I walked into that shelter, I had an epiphany and decided that I must change
gears in my former career as a graphic artist and focus on an occupation dedicated to
working with animals.
After receiving one on one training in the grooming field on both cats and dogs, I opened
The Animal Image in April of 1994 which services both canines and felines. I had
a vision of what I wanted to achieve and set out to make it happen. When you walk into my
shop, you will find an open, clean environment that is quiet and calm. Being exposed to only
one groomer provides your pet with consistency and reduction in stress. One of the more
important aspects is the scheduling. Flexible hours include evenings and Saturdays. Everything
is booked by appointment only and the animals are groomed start to finish. They do not sit in
a cage all day soaking wet as part of an assembly line. The average time for a grooming is
1-2 hours. Also, all pets are dried by hand with a professional high velocity dryer.
The Animal Image prides itself in using all natural, environmentally friendly products.
I understand the special bond between owner and pet since our family has several pets which
mean the world to us. I am devoted to the care and well-being of the entire pet and will discuss
any medical concerns I find while grooming your dog or cat. Each client has a customer card
on file to note the type of haircut or any health issues.
My goal is to provide personalized grooming services at affordable prices. I interact with every
customer to discuss how they would like their pet groomed. Another passion of mine is to extensively
research products and gain further knowledge of animal care.
The Animal Image has established itself as having a excellent reputation for customer satisfaction
and happy pets. I would be happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.
