• “Emily is fantastic. Murphy is an extreme challenge to groom, but Emily has been working with him and now has a system worked out for getting him done. She is the only groomer able to handle him. We are so grateful for her time and patience and she does a great job." - Kerry C.

Cindy is the proud owner of three wonderful dogs. Her eldest, a Boston Terrier named Tilly, still goes on two or three mile hikes regularly!
