About Me

Nestled in one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods in Wichita, the Riverside area, is the house where I live. It is a neighborhood of rivers and parks, old houses and castles, tall ancient trees and people who love dogs. It sports a few cottage industry businesses so I checked with the city to see if dog grooming could be one of them. Yeah! Yes it could. I transformed a portion of my attached garage into a grooming shop. Small, clean, quiet, state of the art. In The Neighborhood Dog Grooming was born. I opened my doors in June of 2007. The positive response was immediate and heart warming and I plan to be here as long as I can work. I do one dog at a time with a set appointment. Dogs must be picked up when they are done so I can keep my promise of only one dog in the shop.(Will do multiple dogs at once as long as they are in the same family.) Each dog is there about an hour and then they can go home. While they are at the shop there is calming music in the background, the scent of lavender in the air, they are treated with kindness and patience and pampered like the little prince or princess they are. They are not caged unless they can’t tolerate hand drying and need to be cage dried and then no longer than ten or fifteen minutes. I set my shop up with a double entrance so they can roam and explore with no danger of their escaping by door bolting. There are no other dogs barking , no people in and out and no stressed out person handling them. The thing I like most about my shop is knowing that the dogs who come here have a pleasant experience. I have so many who come laughing and dancing into the shop. Owners who tell me as soon as they turn the corner onto my street their dogs get happy and one who even says before she leaves home, “We’re gong to go see Susan,” and Lucy bounces with joy all the way to the car. It warms my heart. I like being able to meet and really get to know the people who intrust their dogs to me. And to have the time to really pay attention and know their dogs. Each dog teaches me something new about dogs. It is also wonderful to not have to keep my hours rigid but I am able to flex them according to the needs of my clients. I am closed Sunday and Monday but other than that, call, we can set something up.
