Hi, I am Karen, the founder and owner of A Dog’s Dream – “The Pet Salon”. I have 25+ years of experience working with animals. My dream was to become a veterinarian. As I worked through high school as a vet tech I realized I could never put an animal to sleep.
In 1986, I took my passion, drive, creativity and knowledge of animals and opened A Dog’s Dream – “The Pet Salon”. Although I started out in a tiny retail space, in 1996 (after growing out of multiple larger spaces) we moved to our current location.
I am a perfectionist and am very experienced in all areas of pet styling and care. If you want a standard groom, show cut or to be a little more creative, I’ve done it all. My experiences include but are not limited to; breeding Maltese, showing dogs, hand scissoring, hand stripping, dying coats and creative designs. I am highly educated in pet styling and skin care.
As a professional in the industry, I strive to assist my clientele in all aspects of pet care. My goal is to provide you and your pet with a positive, relaxing experience and the highest quality of service in the industry.
By the way, I am the mother of 2 wonderful boys, Tweety, my Maltese; Plata-Puss, my Shih-Tzu; Tiger Kitty, my Tabby and numerous Maltese Show dogs. I share all of this with my husband, Lance, who is always there for you and your pets. We currently have 4 show dogs, 2 of those are Champions, and the others are on there way to be!
