Animals have always been a part of my life. In 1987 , I graduated from the Wisconsin School Pet
Grooming. I have owned and operated the Paw Patch since 1995. Wanting to learn more about dog behavior, I attended the Arizona
Canine Academy in January 2004 and graduated two months later. While I was there I worked with shelter dogs everyday, interacted
with wolves at a sanctuary in New Mexico, worked hands on with clients whele teachers closey supervised us and learned different
methods to train dogs. This was an invaluable experience for me especially when I work with dogs and their owners everyday.
I absolutely love giving doggie makeovers. It is fun to see the transformation right before my eyes. And my favorite part
is when owners come to pick up theri freshly groomed dogs.
