After adding a new and improved maintenance room, Cheryl Patrick said her family’s grooming service is back and better than ever.

 

Doggie Styles mobile grooming opened in 2002 following Cheryl’s previous career in the human resource field. They offer full service grooming to their customers’ pets which includes bathing, brushing, nail trimming, ear cleaning, add ons, coloring, hair cuts and brush outs (shedding treatment).

 

The business’s staff is composed of 5 groomers, 2 bathers, and 1 person who runs the front end of the building. Cheryl said she has a lot of people who apply for grooming jobs with little to no real experience because they think it’s simple. She clarified that that’s not true at all.

 

Her daughter Sadie is the manager of the business as well as the lead groomer. She has studied grooming since 2002 and is an experienced cat groomer and qualified in breed standards including hand stripping.

 

She also added that the business does its best to cater dogs of all breeds, sizes and even some other animals.

 

“We just had a woman bring in her gerbil the other day to have its nails trimmed,” said Cheryl. “We also handle cats every now and then but primarily we treat dogs.”

 

Cheryl said they currently take walk-in appointments for nail trimming but all other services they offer require an appointment.

 

Mayor Lauretti and head of the Valley Chamber of Commerce, Bill Purcell attended the grand reopening and spoke briefly before the ribbon cutting ceremony.

 

“We wish you the best of luck, but we already know the hard work you put in will continue as it has for the past 14 years,” said Lauretti.

 

The business is open Monday-Saturday from 8 a.m until 5 p.m. and is located at 210 Leavenworth Rd.
