Greetings from the Pet Me Scratch Me Spa!
We would like to introduce our Pet Stylists!
Amanda joined Pet Me Scratch Me in November of 2011. She was born and raised in La Crescent and has been a certified dog groomer since 2007. She is the proud owner of a Rottweiler named Dungey, an American Bulldog named Thor, a Main Coon named Prince and a Pixie Bob named Lucy. When she’s not grooming she likes to spend time with her two children, go fishing, go to motocross races and hand out with friends. Amanda has been a wonderful addition to our grooming staff and enjoys meeting each and every dog that comes in!
Maggie joined Pet Me Scratch Me in October of 2015. She was born and raised in Cleethorpes on the east coast of England. She met her husband on the internet and moved to La Crosse, WI in March of 2008. She has been grooming for over 14 years and did her training at the Grimsby Institute in Grimsby, England. She has a Level 3 BTEC National Diploma (Associate’s Degree Equivalent) in Animal Management and Level 3 City and Guild Advanced Dog Grooming Certificate and First Aid for Pets. 17 years ago, Maggie got her first Bearded Collie and took him to conformation classes and dog shows where she became interested in all of the different dog breeds and their show cuts which started her down her grooming career path. She fell in love with working with dogs and enjoys seeing how a good cut can transform a dog. She also enjoys building relationships with both the dog and the parents. She is able to groom any breed of dog as well as cats and is skilled at hand scissoring and hand stripping. Some of her favorite breeds to groom are the small terriers such as Westies, Scotties and Schnauzers. Maggie currently shares her home with 3 Bearded Collies – Dexter, Toolie & Dylan. In addition to grooming Maggie also owns a small café in Trempealeau with her husband called River Café – www.rivercafetrempealeau.com – Check it out sometime! Another interesting skill Maggie has is that she can “tip” sheep and trim their feet! Maggie is amazing with the dogs and has been such a wonderful addition to our grooming staff!
Beth began grooming at Pet Me Scratch Me in May of 2016. She shares her home with her two children and a Shiba Inu named Kado, as well as two cats named Paco & Lennie. Beth has been grooming since 2005 and learned to be a groomer by attending the PetSmart Grooming Academy followed by much supplemental education through personal research and self-training. She considers herself a skilled Pet Stylist meaning that although she can do show-quality, breed standard cuts, what she enjoys most are Teddy style trims and modified standard cuts. She likes combining style with ease of maintenance for the owners. Some of her favorite breeds to groom are the scruffy terrier mixes! Beth enjoys the exposure to and interaction with various breeds of dogs, as well as having the outlet to express her creativity. When she has the time, Beth likes to relax by reading, writing or enjoying music. She would like to exercise more than she has the time for but settles for chasing after her two children instead. She also enjoys painting and for a time was able to make additional income by selling her paintings. Beth has been a wonderful addition to the Pet Me Scratch Me Spa and the dogs all LOVE her!
Nicole joined the Pet Me Scratch Me grooming team at our La Crosse location in September of 2016. Nicole is from Lodi, WI and has been grooming dogs since 2009. She has always loved animals which is why she decided to become a groomer and she loves being able to utilize her creative side in grooming. She is great at doing Mohawks and really enjoys doing hand scissor trims. Some of her favorite breeds to groom include Yorkies, Poodles, Japanese Chins, Pekingese, Shelties and Collies. When not grooming she likes gaming, modeling, photography and various projects on the You Tube Channel. She also loves experimenting with different hair colors, both on her and her dogs!
Zoey joined the Pet Me Scratch Me grooming team at our La Crosse location in September of 2016. Zoey is from La Crosse and has also been grooming since 2009. Some of the things she likes about being a groomer is the opportunity to be artistic, the flexibility and the cute puppies! Some of her favorite breeds to groom are Malteses, Yorkies, Shih-Tzus and Labs. When not grooming, she enjoys listening to and playing music, singing, watching movies and television, playing video games, drawing, painting and interior design. She also considers herself pretty funny and is aspiring to be a magician!
