Hi, my name is Cynthia. I have been an animal lover since a very young age. I got my first pony at age 10 and my first dog at age 12. I joined 4-H and showed horses, dogs, cats, chickens, and goats. My sister was a dog groomer and taught me how to groom my cocker spaniel at age 16. I worked at a dog kennel when I was 18 and loved it. When I was 28, I had a chance to start working at a kennel and the owner also taught me how to groom. I have been grooming ever since and love working with animals. I currently have 5 goats, 3 chickens, a rabbit, 6 cats (4 are barn cats), 2 horses, a chinchilla and my 2 lovely border collies, Grace and Ezra. I do agility with my dogs and some herding. To me I have the best job; I get to meet people, groom dogs, and build a relationship with their owners. I feel very blessed to be able to do this.
Hi, my name is Karen. I am married, a mother of 3, and a grandma of 5 beautiful grandchildren. I worked in restaurant management for 7 years, and then worked at a pet store where I met Stacy and Nancy. I was asked to join Diamonds in the Ruff Pet Grooming in October of 1996 and have been grooming ever since. I have also groomed part-time at two vet clinics, which was fun since as a child I wanted to be a Veterinarian.
I groom both cats and dogs and have a close relationship with many of my furry little friends and their families.
I have several animals including Miss Clover and Alvin who are both dogs, and three Light Brahma chickens.
I started Diamonds in the Ruff Pet Grooming about 20 years ago. I have always loved dogs and wanted to find a job to work with them and have more time with my boys who were just starting school. My boys are now in their twenties and I’m still grooming.
I have had collies for about 20 years and started showing them about 10 years ago. I have shown them in obedience, conformation and agility. Dog shows have introduced me to many new friends and I have traveled many miles to dog shows around the Country.
I love working with dogs and getting to know their owners as well. I truly believe we have the best customers here at Diamonds in the Ruff Pet Grooming.
