A word from Blue Ribbon's
My journey to owning and operating a fabulous grooming salon began with the purchase of my first show dog in 1997, a Standard Poodle named Freddy. I learned how to grow and maintain his show coat after meeting Kathi Johnson, Marquis Standard Poodles, in 2000. Kathi mentored me every step of the way and we obtained Freddy's AKC Championship in early 2002. From AKC dog shows to helping Kathi at her grooming business, I became immersed in all things dogs. Formerly an art director and graphic designer, I had an artistic eye and easily learned grooming patterns.
Fast-forward to 2009. After working with Kathi for nine years, I had the opportunity to purchase Blue Ribbon Pet Grooming from her. At that time I decided to relocate the business a few blocks down the road and do a complete interior spa-like buildout from bare walls and floors. Thus, the name change from Pet Grooming to Pet Salon
. This business is my heart and soul and because I am a meticulous overachiever, I set the bar high for the product going out my front door. I only employ skillful stylists who have the same attention to detail that I have, who, like me, care about the well-being of the pets that are entrusted to us and take pride in our work. Dogs
are living, breathing, moving creatures. We sometimes don't get it perfect, but that's our goal, and we do come pretty close!
