Tender Touch Dog Grooming


March 27, 2012

I began my career as a pet groomer in 1979, in Hollywood, California. My private clients included many celebrities; Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Ross, Don Rickles, Lorne Greene and Hugh Hefner, to name just a few. My business also included grooming Poodles for professional, International Dog Show participants.

I then moved to beautiful Lake Stevens and in 1981 I started Lake Stevens’ Tender Touch Dog Grooming, working initially out of my home. Shortly thereafter, I opened a shop in downtown Lake Stevens.

In operating my own business, I have always been driven by my love of animals and grooming. I have found it to be true that if you love what you do, you will always feel happy and successful.

Running your own business can certainly be demanding and I say ‘Go for it, Ladies, keep forging ahead and you will be successful!’

You can see me every day (except Wednesday and Sunday) at 2705 Hartford Drive in beautiful downtown Lake Stevens where we groom “the Good, the Bad and the Ugly” or to make an appointment call 425-334-5156.
