After noticing so many skin problems on the dogs she was grooming, she found Iv San Bernard's Ambassador Dr Faver, DVM. She is now dedicated to being a voice for what's best for her clients.

Marina is also a certified groomer at Country Pet Playground. She has taken this class as well.

Karissa went a level further with her grooming education! She took the advanced skin & hair class by Dr Faver, DVM. 



Grooming should not only include how your dog looks, but also how they FEEL! Having healthy skin is just as important as looking fabulous. We do things a little differently around here in terms of how we groom based on science. A groomer should be the voice of their doggie clients and should be educated on what is best for them. Karissa has extensive education in grooming & is always continuing that.


The main thing you will find is that we DO NOT just shave dogs and call it good. We will not shave any long-haired dog shorter than 1/2 inch and even encourage keeping their hair at 1 inch or longer. The health of their skin is very important to us. We also will NOT shave any dog with a double undercoat or any short-haired dog. Please see the info charts on why that should not be done.

Did you know you know that your dog's hair is its skin's protection, which is the largest organ of the body? The skin is a barrier that keeps good things in & bad things out. 

The hair is the first line of defense & helps with thermal regulation, sensory perception and a barrier to chemicals, physical injury, microbial injury & UV rays.

Every 21 days, your dog's skin "recycles" its epidermis layer of skin & stays there until it's bathed. 

Sebum is produced from a gland in the hair follicle that creates a protective layer on the skin & nourishes the hair.


How we groom your dog, depends on their coat type!

Why? Because a de-shed groom on a Golden Retriever is way more involved than a German Shepherd....and SCIENCE!

Select a breed. Scroll down to Breed Traits & Characteristics. Click on the Physical Tab. Look at Coat Type. Take a step further by scrolling down to where it says Breed Standard. Click on View Full Breed Standard. Scroll down to where it says Coat. We groom according to breed standard.

For mixed breeds, look at all possible breeds. They will have a combination coat of what the mixes are.
