Once upon a time…

After spending 20+ years in the grooming industry and a lifetime showing dogs, Carol Fellbaum (above, on the right) decided that she would put everything she had learned to the ultimate test. On January 24, 2005 A Dog’s Life was born. Thanks to the overwhelming support of our wonderful clients and community, we have been growing ever since.

Throughout the years the team has been privileged to groom countless dogs and cats, as well as give time and donate resources to select non-profits. We continue to participate in area events and festivals, and to hold special grooming seminars for local and internationally recognized groomers.

Our Daily Mission

To provide a superior grooming experience for pets and their owners in a professional, pleasant and safe environment.  We believe each pet deserves a positive, stress-free grooming experience with a well-trained, compassionate, skilled groomer.

Sometimes a ball gets thrown and we get a little off track ­— luckily we’ve created a few guidelines designed to help us keep our mission the top priority.

  1. Strive to use the highest quality pet styling products, tools and equipment, to ensure pets receive the best possible results and experience.
  2. Dedicate time and resources to continuing education and training guaranteeing that our groomers are well-versed in the industry’s standards of safety and style.
  3. Partner with our clients in the care of their pets, to be their professional resource for any questions or issues related to the grooming and care of their pets.
