GroomerCarley will be grooming no more…

I want to thank you all for being such loyal and wonderful customers, but unfortunately I have made the decision to stop grooming entirely.  Owning my own grooming business has been a wonderful experience, and I will never forget the clients and puppies that made it all possible!

To all my clients I am recommending the following groomer:

Tara McGaughran at Onion Creek Kennels has been grooming for more than 11 years.  She is an excellent and dedicated groomer, and I trust your pups will be in good hands with her.

Thank you again, keep in touch!



The good & the bad news

March, March, what a month…  On March 27th my husband Clayton was in a very bad head-on car collision.  He broke five bones and had to have surgery on his knee.  He obviously will be out of work for a while, and unfortunately our health insurance has been giving us the run-around as well.  So when my old manager called, about two weeks after the accident, and offered me her job…well, I took it.  As much as I have loved getting to know all of my wonderful clients and creating a business for myself, I could never ignore the timing of things.  At this point in my life, job security and benefits sound too good to be true.

So, I bittersweet-ly must tell you all, I will no longer be taking customers at my home.  If you would like to continue services with me, you can find me at Petco in Kyle, TX  (Place page).  If you have a dog that is unable to come to Petco for specific reasons (elderly, no shot records, dog aggressive, etc) you can still find me at 512-771-8756 , and depending on the situation I may be able to squeeze you in at home.

I want to thank you all again for being such loyal customers!  This has been a great experience for me and I hope to see you all in the future!


The Honda Fit that saved Clayton's life


Finally some warm weather (mixed in with a little bit of snow and ice)!!   I can’t wait for tubing weather!  And I think these adorable pups would agree…

Jax (Maltese) & Kamie (Bichon)

Izzy the Bichon Frise






Indie the Yorkshire Terrier









These next two pups had to be shaved completely due to matting.  Here are some before and after pics.

Severe matting can be painful and sometimes dangerous for dogs, if you know of any dogs whose fur coat looks like this, please encourage them to see a groomer soon..

Hello everyone!  My computer quit working about a month ago, which is why there has been a serious lull in doggie pictures!  Hopefully Santa will fix my computer, but until then here are a few cutie pies from November.


Happy Halloween!!
