Meet our groomers and bathers

Dog Groomer Lori Schleigh

Hi I’m Lori.

My life has always been about dogs. In the last 40 years I’ve shown, raised, trained, groomed, bred, whelped, (in fact, I coined the phrase mid-woof for myself because I delivered so many litters for people), lost, and mostly loved dogs. My intention for opening a shop is to teach other groomers how to become “More Than a Groomer”.

Grooming is an important part of your dogs’ health. Over the years I have learned how to recognize many ailments in dogs from bad teeth to anal gland cancer. Groomers and bathers are touching and looking at every part of your dog and will let you know if something needs attention. I usually recommend having your dog groomed every 6 to 8 weeks this way we can alert you to any changes from grooming to grooming. That is why I prefer to keep the dogs with the same groomer.

Grooming can be dangerous. We use sharp tools and work on a limited surface. I want to create the safest and most pleasant experience I can for your dog. This involves training. We use firm words like ‘No, hold still, stay…,’ every groomer uses their own words or noises to convey the desired effect. When the behavior is corrected the dog is praised. I keep your dog with the same groomer so they can learn the routine and words. This makes your dog more comfortable, they know what to expect each grooming. If you have any concerns about our training practices, please bring them to our attention.

jazmin

Meet Jazmin.

Jazmin became a groomer after falling in love with her previous job as a dog bather. She immediately started learning to groom during this time and 5 years later she bathes, hand blow dries and grooms her own dogs at More Than A Groomer. Jazmin is grateful she found a passion surrounded by amazing people who have the same mission she does. She makes sure every dog she comes in contact with has a safe and enjoyable experience. She enjoys making dogs feel and look their very best for their humans.

Meet Mikey!

He has been a Dog Groomer for more than 35 years!!! Mike loves all animals, especially dogs!!! 🐕 There is nothing more he would rather do than groom! “This isn’t a “job” for me. It’s a hobby I get paid for”! Mike really excels, and is an expert at Terrier grooming, his specialty. We are ecstatic to have his vast experience and skills. Mike’s biggest reward is watching the smiles on his happy customers faces after he transforms their scruffy smelly mess into a thing of admiration. As an additional perk to Mikey’s grooming expertise, he has an excellent singing voice! You can hear a live performance daily of Mikey serenading the shop with Rock Hits from the 70s and 80s. 🎶 He really loves his job! 🙋‍♂️
