Meet Bonnie's Barkery Grooming Team
I’ve been grooming for 23 years. I love animals, I have 5 dogs, 3 horses and 2 cats but who’s counting! I started grooming when a groomer told me my schnauzer was “bad”, but I believe there are no bad dogs, so I started grooming him myself and never looked back! I love my job and all the people around me!
I was born and raised in Phoenix, yep, a true native! I started grooming dogs in 1977 and cats in 1990. I started the grooming department at Bonnie’s Barkery, and after a brief “retirement” I’m glad to be back “home”. I too, love animals! I take care of a feral cat colony, 2 rescued pigs, 2 goats, and a tortoise!
I have been bathing/grooming for about 3 years now and I can't imagine doing anything else. I am a single mother of a 13-year-old boy who happens to be allergic to dogs and cats (which is why our pet is a Bearded Dragon). I am a huge animal lover, so I am so thrilled to be able to work with dogs and cats every day! Besides my love for animals I am addicted to video games.
I have lived in 6 different states, finally landing in Arizona where my family is. I have tried many different sports and instruments, I have tried arts and crafts, I like cooking different foods and eating them, too. I love trying all different things.
But my love for my family, and for dogs, are the only consistent things in my life. Being a dog groomer is the most rewarding job I will ever have. Being able to transform dogs every day and watch them strut their stuff at the end of a long groom brings me a kind of happiness that I have never found anywhere else. Watching dogs show off their new look is a wonderful experience.
I grew up with animals. My mom raised poodles and had a horse stable, so I love all animals. I decided in my early 20’s that I wanted to work with animals, and grooming was the profession I chose. I love the work I do and love seeing your dogs come in for nice grooming!
