Through loyality and appreciation, my clients have watched me grow from one grooming dog in my basement, to over 700 dogs and cats! It has also been the praise and referrals from local vets and breeders that has resulted in the creation and growth of The Puppy Pad. Because of the dedication of my client base, I can now offer you and others expanded services to meet your growing needs and cater to the Northside! We now offer: Doggie Daycare, Dog Boarding, Cat Boarding, and Pet grooming, and NEW! Full line of premium dog and cat food, treats, and pet supplies!
I began my journey in California as a dog boarding technician. From there I worked as a vet assistant and then a pet bather. I learned to groom in a popular shop in Modesto, Ca under a reputable, quality first, groomer/business owner who had a beautiful white standard poodle in a show trim. Sabrina willingly let me shave her lines, fluff and shape her pom poms, and brush on her relentlessly. My attention to detail and love for animals helped grow my skill, patience, and speed. My teacher (with Sabrina's help) graciously passed on tips and tricks and advice passed on to her. I worked under her and in her shop for 3 years, working on show dogs, rare breeds, shihtzus in full coats, poodles in show trims, and everything in between, before moving my family to Spokane. Since moving here 9 years ago, I learned many new things about pet grooming, such as snow balls and funny "winter trims" where the backs are longer for warmth and legs are shaved because of snow! :) I have since been coined the "labradoodle lady", Auntie Christina, and "the best groomer EVER!" I pride myself in my work and my ability to "rehabilitate" dogs who have been traumatized by rough ear plucking, or uncomfortable with having their nails done because of too-short cuts before. While I cannot always guarantee that your pet will be excited to come for a bath (a lot are though!) I can guarantee that I will be gentle and kind and perceptive to their individual needs. And they will so happy when you pick them up!
TWO NEW GROOMERS!!
I am blessed to say that Melissa Andersen and Ayana Rhoades have both joined the team. Melissa has been grooming for over twenty years and is in high demand! She came with a huge clientele that refused to take their dogs to any other groomer and searched for her. She has the patience and skill of no one else I have encountered, and extremly professional! Ayana has been grooming for 8 years and recently had her own shop. She is a fantastic groomer and many might remember her as the "groomer with the Danes" :)
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
