Our Founder

Ani Corless

Hello there!

I have been working with animals for 24 years. I started as a vet assistant then to grooming school and on to 3 years of apprenticeship with an industry leading groomer in St. Louis, MO.

Missouri has a high population of of puppy mills therefore a high population of rescues. It has been a passion of mine to make the grooming experience as calm and comfortable as possible for all dogs.

My art is the hand scissor work I’m known for and have honed over two decades. I’ve found house call grooming to be the most relaxed experience for both doggo and groomer alike!

Christopher – Groomer

With over 14 years of experience in the grooming industry, I have been fortunate to groom nearly every breed of dog.

My background is in art and design, and with my training in sculpture, I groom as if I am creating a piece of art.

I visualize shapes in hair, the same way I do in clay, and it allows me to literary sculpt your dog. I am fortunate to spend a majority of my time with my own dog, Monet, a Kerry Blue Terrier.
