About Me


  I started working for Carl Rudzick, Owner of Merrick Pooch Pad when I was 13 years old. I bathed and started grooming the dogs. I went to West Virginia College and graduated in 1990. They taught me about dogs; training, obedience, tracking, protection work man trailing, vet tec skills, kennel and business management. Then I went to work for The North Shore Animal League and worked part time at Cold Noses in Massapequa. I moved to Las Vegas in 1992 were I built my own grooming business “Dog World” acting as the general contractor, from sheetrock walls and cement floor to a prosperous business. I sold it in 1997 and moved back to Long Island. I worked for 11 years at The Sunrise Veterinary Group (VCA) Hospital in West Islip on Sunrise HWY. At that time I also taught Dog Grooming at night at Eastern Suffolk Boces for 2 years. I then worked at the Massapequa till I moved here to Jim Thorpe PA. I am now grooming at K-9 Bath and Body in Nesquehoning PA.

    I Love Dogs, All Dogs! I’m very good with all dogs, old ones, bitters, nervous ones. I have a lot of patients and never get loud or aggressive with any dog. Never-ever. I’m very good at grooming and really love to do it. I’m an artist and these dogs are my sculpture or canvas. When I’m grooming I’m like Bob Ross the painter. I sometimes think to myself “A little snip here and a maybe another one over there. Now that’s a pretty little puppy.” I’m not crazy just passionate about my work.


    My purpose in life has been bringing dogs and their owners a happier life. A clean dog feels better, gets more attention and is happier. Dogs are called man’s best friend for a reason. They are God spelled backwards, they see and hear everything and they give unconditional love always. I hope to see and groom your dog.
