My name is Lori Rushing. I recently moved to Hawkins to enjoy a more country style of living. I was truly blessed when Dr. Hobbs welcomed me into her facility to set up my pet grooming service!
I started grooming when I was 15 years old. I was taught how to groom by Betty Jo Gallas, a reputable show toy poodle breeder, owner of JoDan Kennels in Sunnyvale Texas. She had approximately 250 dogs and puppies at all times. I groomed everything from 3 week old puppies to $14,000.00 show poodles. She encouraged me to be patient and always take my time and be detail oriented to ensure that every dog I groomed looked as if it were ready to go into the show ring. It does not matter how fast you groom or how many dogs you can groom in 1 day, only that they are groomed to perfection. I am proud to say that I groomed many of her dogs that won and finished their championship at the Westminster dog shows, as well as other shows in the U.S.A.
I love to groom. Each dog and cat has their own temperaments and special needs. I take the time to make sure that they are calm and comfortable. I try to make their grooming experience as enjoyable as possible. I treat each pet as if they were my own. That includes holding them and giving them lots of hugs and kisses.
I groom to your specifications and your pet's special needs. Grooming generally includes ears cleaned and hair removed if necessary, anal glands expressed, nails cut and filed, style, bows or bandanna and cologne. I custom make the bows, so special color or design requests are welcomed. I will make you aware of any health issues I may find while grooming your pet so you have the opportunity to resolve the problem if you so desire. Health issues include finding fleas, ticks, ear infections, moles, tumors, etc...
I appreciate the opportunity to meet you and to groom your very special furry family member. I also appreciate referrals. Refer a friend and you will receive $5.00 off your pet's next grooming and your friend will receive $5.00 off of their pet's first grooming. Make sure they tell me who referred them to ensure I document your pet's grooming account information.
The slideshow above features some some of the pets I have groomed with before and after photos.
