A 45 year veteran, Alexis has been grooming and showing dogs since 1972, as well as grooming cats since 1977. She graduated from the Pacific School Of Dog Grooming in Oxnard California, Class of 1972. She is a native Californian, born in Whittier California, and grew up in Pasadena. She moved to Escondido in 1985 and stayed.
Her background previously includes owning, breeding and showing Poodles, Bostons and Border Terriers. She currently owns and rescues Chihuahuas, helping to place them in good homes. She is currently a member of the following clubs and/or organizations: Toy Breeders Association of Southern California, Miniature Bull Terrier Club of Southern California, Desert Empire Terrier Club of Southern California, The Southern California Groomer Association and the San Diego Groomers Association. Grooming is not just a profession to me, but a passion as well.
Does your dog hate going to the groomer? Have you been turned away by groomers due to your dog showing aggression while being groomed? Have you spent several hundred dollars to take your dog to the vet to be put under so that your dog can be groomed? We have the solution!
Our groomer has devised a system that doesn't require anesthesia, and allows your dog to learn to trust the groomer and maybe even learn to like being groomed. We use an all-natural calming chew that works fast to help settle your dog down prior to being groomed. If your dog is prone to biting the groomer, we use a gentle muzzle and a cone so that your dog cannot bite, which allows the groomer to feel safe while grooming your dog. For large dogs, we may require a second dog handler to help with the grooming.
