The two trained extensively to visit schools, libraries, rehab centers and hospitals, and Dana enjoyed and took pride in grooming Luna herself before each visit and loved bringing smiles to hundreds of people. When she realized she could take that enjoyment to a new career making other dog owners’ pets look and feel spectacular, she enrolled in grooming school in Chicago. She moved back to the East Coast six years ago, bringing with her new grooming skills and love for an exciting and fulfilling career.
As a groomer, Dana is passionate about her role in protecting the health and wellbeing of our pets. Whether she’s grooming a show dog or rescue, puppy or special needs senior dog, she believes every dog is special, every groom is a joy, and each wagging tail and smiling owner is the greatest reward.
