Pet Stylist, Amanda Klein
Animal Background: My name is Amanda Klein. Every since I can remember I have had a love for animals. At 16 I started working at PetSmart and I can remember always bringing home the small pets that wouldn’t go home with a new family or the ones we couldn’t sell for one reason or another. I had my own little zoo. Nowadays it is just my cat Frankie but I sure get my dog fix from grooming.
Grooming Experience: I began grooming in the corporate setting in 2007 and the rest is history. I left the corporate salon world and also the dog grooming industry completely, 4 years ago and worked for Wegmans. Although I loved working at Wegmans, something felt like it was missing. I knew it was because I wasnt exercising my passion for dogs and grooming.
I worked with Amanda Alford in the corporate grooming world in 2012 and she always talked about owning her own salon. Years later when I noticed she was looking for a groomer, I knew this was where I belonged.
I am so excited to be here, loving on all of our furry angels while they are with us getting beautiful!
