My name is Susan Hatch. I am a lifelong resident of Minnesota. I currently reside in Shakopee with my husband Tim, our three dogs, Magnus, Gabby, and Rolex, and our three cats, Dinger, Zoomer, and Squeekers. I started grooming at the age of 14. I groomed through high school and college and have always loved it. After graduating from The University of Minnesota, I dabbled in a couple other careers but I always felt a strong pull towards the grooming industry. After several more years of working full-time as a groomer, I decided to open my own shop. It is something that I always wanted to do, so with the help of Tim, we decided to give it a shot.

Tim quit his job as an ironworker to help with the shop full-time. He takes care of the cleaning and maintenance. He also operates our pickup and delivery service for our clients who request or require it.

We are very fortunate to be surrounded by amazing co-workers and clients. They are the ones who truly make this shop successful. Thank you to everyone for your amazing support. I truly love what I do and treat each and every dog or cat as if they were my own.

Rebel's Story
’m Rebel, a 9 year old Springer Spaniel. I am a CANCER SURVIVOR! In winter 2011-2012, I had a couple of small seizures. They didn't last long and I recovered from them quickly. In February 2012, I had a Grand Mal seizure in the middle of the night. I went to the emergency vet clinic where they gave me valium, and went home the next day. About a week later I had another Grand Mal seizure. This time they took me to my Vet, Dr. Jerri Smith. She told us about a research study at the University of Minnesota, the Canine Brain Tumor Clinical Trials Program.
