All of our stylists were apprenticed under a certified master groomer, and each received individualized, hands-on training on most breeds. Our top priority is to safely and efficiently provide your pet with a detailed cut that makes you happy.
Elizabeth – Founder/Head Stylist
Elizabeth started her career in 2001, absorbing all the information and techniques she could from her mentors. Being a fast learner, it didn’t take her long to find out she had a natural talent for this and immersed herself completely into the world of grooming. She was exposed to different breeds and temperaments and each dogs unique personality. She learned about the benefits of regular grooming concerning the overall health of your pets. From start to finish she was taught that the ins and outs of what it takes to appropriately care for your pet.
From leaving long lashes to creating mohawks to blending in patterns, her unique attention to detail is what makes her great at what she does. Summer cuts, puppy cuts, show cuts, everything in between, she excels at providing you with a proper trim. Elizabeth, along with the other groomers, are very knowledgeable about most breeds and always help you in creating a cut that best fits you and your pet’s needs. She strives to be a perfectionist and loves to have you leaving here happy knowing your dog was well treated and come out as close to perfect as possible.
She has mastered the cuts of the over 90 doodles, of all varieties, and for that reason she has been dubbed “The Doodle Queen” by her loving clients. Though she does loves her doodles, her client list is full of different breeds, from the newest designer breeds to the oldest in the book.
“I always tell my clients, ‘I’m only as good as your dog will allow me to be.’ When a groomer and a dog have a great connection, it shows in their work.” -Elizabeth
Chris Toc – Co-Founder/Stylist
Chris has been in the pet industry since April 2007, when both he and Elizabeth were given the opportunity to purchase Scrub-A-Dub Dog Wash. During the 7 years as co-owner, Chris gained much experience, not only learning about all the different breeds but also in the day to day responsibilities of owning a business. The best part for him was meeting people from all around and listening to their stories while they bathed their pets.
Since then he realized he had a natural way with dogs, from your large breeds to even the smallest furry friend. He prides himself in making you, as well as your pet, feel comfortable, safe, and tending to their individual needs. You can find Chris taking on several tasks throughout the day from attending the front office, helping in the grooming dept., or giving your pet its personal attention during the bathing process.
“My favorite part of it all? ….when a dog comes in the shop and darts straight to you, that’s how you know you’re doing something right.” -Chris
