I've had a life long love for animanls, which is what pushed me to look for a career where I could work with them. That being 10 years ago, I am happy to say that I am a dog groomer! I went through the Petsmart grooming academy and after 4 1/2 years there, I decided I need to move on to pursue more training where I eventually became certified in the sporting and terrier breeds. I also specialize in hand scissoring. When I'm not grooming, my time is spent with my husband, our sweet little boy and our two fur babies.

Hi, my name is Israel, but you can call me Izzy. I started grooming around 2011 and have not stopped. I have learned so much and really enjoy using my skills and being creative. I love working with dogs and the satisfaction of making them clean and looking great with a great haircut I appreciate you for giving me the opportunity to spend time with and groom your pups.

Since I was a little girl I always loved animals, it's always been a passion of mine. I became a groomer in 2006 and haven't stopped since. I've been going strong for 10 years now! I love to make dogs feel better and the clients happy. I am looking forward to many more years of being a groomer. I love my job and I wouldn't change anything!

My name is Rosie. I am 25 years old. I have been in the dog grooming industry for the past 6 years. I do what I love everyday which is helping the dogs feel and look good. Being mobile lets me have that one on one attention with your fur baby to make dog grooming a positive thing. My main goal is to make your dog trust me during the pampering session, to establish a bond. When I'm not grooming your dog you can catch me grooming my 4 little ones! I am looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies.

Here at Foxy Roxy's, I handle the scheduling of our mobile groomers, so I will be the friend you talk to when you call to book an appointment. I worked for groomers for two years before coming to Foxy Roxy's, so I understand just how much care and attention your pet deserves. Dogs have always been an important part of my family, so I know just how much they mean to yours. I promise to work hard to find the perfect groomer for you, so every member of your family, furry or not, can look forward to seeing our van pull up to your home.

My name is April, and I have been grooming for over 10 years. I love grooming both dogs and cats. I received my certification for Feline Master Groomer (CFMG) from the NCGI in 2015. Continuing education is very important to me, which is why I strive to constantly learn and improve my grooming skills and low stress pet handling by studying for certifications and attending seminars and trade shows annually. There is nothing more gratifying than being able to help a shy or nervous pet be more comfortable with being groomed.

Although some days the work we do as dog groomers is difficult and laborous, it's very fulfilling. I unknowingly started a career in the companion animal care industry when I started working after school at a local pet store during middle school. Ten years later I landed a job as a pet groomer at a local kennel: that's when my career of choice began. Every day when I go to work I can look forward to wagging tails and sloppy kisses. It's hard to believe that I've found a career which combines my lifelong love for animals with my passion for the arts: it really is ideal. I love learning about pet care and spending time at trade shows to hone my handling and grooming skills. I have recently become a member of the California Professional Pet Groomers Association (or "CPPGA") in order to further myself as a professional pet stylist and hold myself to a higher standard while following their code of ethics.
Over the years my regular clients become more like family to me and I wouldn't change it for the world. I'm looking for clients who want to pamper their baby on a regular basis. Believe it or not, the more a pet is groomed, the more they enjoy it! I look forward to meeting you and your baby!
