About Us

Michaela is a South Carolina State Certified All Breed Groomer since 1994 with experience in grooming a variety of dog, cat, and small animal breeds. Grooming is available Monday through Friday for appointments. Only all natural shampoos and conditioners are used on your pet.


We make the time to make sure your pet is clipped to meet your needs. We also specialize in difficult cases without having to resort to tranquilizers. Michaela is typically able to groom other pets that have been refused by other groomers as being too difficult. Over time, she can regain your pet's trust due to bad experience with other groomers.

Grooming services can be personalized on a rotating schedule that works best for your pet and your budget.

About Michaela


I was born in Wurzburg, Germany and was married then moved to the United States in 1989 to South Carolina.  I raised two children, as a stay at home mom. We all loved animals, so what is the natural thing to do when you live on 30 acres?  We had numerous dogs and cats and four horses. We also took on a couple of goats from the neighbor that where orphaned, where we bottle raised them. Not to mention the bunnies and chickens. With our dogs we had a lot of fun on weekends. I raised Jack Russell Terriers, which we took on frequent Terrier trials.  

I started working as a groomer for a Veterinarian. Then in 1997, I moved to Colorado where life continued as usual. The babies in my life right now are our three dogs, an older Labrador and two rescue dogs that my husband and I have adopted over the last two years.


I live 20 miles away and I have been taking my two dogs to Micheala for about 3 years and I refuse to go anywhere else. Micheala is a very gentle and caring person, she will treat your animals as if they where her own. My dogs would freak out when I took them to the other groomers but not with Micheala. It really makes a big difference when you find someone that you and your dogs can trust completely.

Thank you so much for the excellent job on grooming Rua Skye.  He looks awesome and was happy and content. The last time I took him to a groomer they upset him.  Not this time, what a difference! I will happily recommend your facility to anyone I know! Michaela is awesome!  Both Rua and myself were comfortable with her from the start and will be visiting you again.  Thank you for a great experience!

Michaela is the best we have ever had in a groomer!   She has a wonderful and easy-going personality and we know that she will be the same way with our puppies.

Thank you, Michaela, for all you have done and will continue to do.

Best wishes for all good things.
