Meet Our Groomers

Bonnie W.

Bonnie is our full-time pet groomer and generally works Monday thru Friday. She has been grooming for 18 years and came to us from another salon where she was a Salon Leader. Bonnie went to grooming school because she loves animals and has a natural artistic flair. Her favorite dogs to groom are Miniature Schnauzers and Yorkshire Terriers. Bonnie is also our only groomer that works with cats. She is married and has 3 sons, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a bearded dragon. Her hobbies include making cold-processed soaps, bead work, baking, and staying very active with her church. I think it is safe to say she is very busy when she is not at work. Bonnie’s dream vacation would be a trip to Scotland and her favorite time of year is Spring.

Jen M.

Jen came to E.M. Dodger’s with 17 years of experience working in area salons and grooms dogs on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Jen comes from a family of animal lovers and made the decision to begin a career in dog grooming at a young age. Her favorite dogs to groom are Shih Tzus and West Highland Terriers. Jen is married and has 2 daughters and a Shih Tzu named Reese. You will often find Reese romping around the shop on days when Jen is working. Jen is a devoted swim mom and is usually running her girls to practices and meets. Her hobbies include physical fitness and relaxing in the sun at the pool, beach, or lake. Her dream vacation would be a trip to Australia with her family to sample the beaches and see the unique wildlife first hand.

Scott C.

Scott came to us with 2 1/2 years of professional grooming experience and grooms Friday thru Monday. You can also find Scott working in our retail shop a couple days per week. He has a a very nurturing disposition and his favorite breed to groom is a Pomeranian. Scott loves all aspects of grooming but finds working with dogs whose coats are in rough shape to be the most rewarding. Doggy kisses and tail wags from a dog that has been freed of mats and tangles really warm his heart. Scott is in a serious relationship and is actively involved in his church. He is also a big Minnesota Twins fan and helps care for his family pet, a Shih-poo. His favorite cuisine is Chinese food and his dream vacation would be anywhere Tropical.
