Oh Abby. AbFab. Every 2 weeks for... a decade? You were the best, my grand old lady. 💔
Credits to her dedicated sitter Cindy, that brought her to me. Never met the owner, but credit to him to keeping me as her groomer after he moved to Oconomowoc. I had a special bed for her, and it’s now been passed on to another special sheepdog that needs it. Love you Abs
Thanks for the pic, Cindy Steinle 💗😭

My favorite picture ever. Our original crew, our “shop dogs” this took many takes, but we got a good one. They have all left us, but, we will always love them.

Oh Egg. You were a special girl, I’ll miss you. 😭 💔

Happy 17th Birthday to my “baby”. I officially opened my first shop 17 years ago today, no foolin.
Wow how time has flown by. Always thankful for the support of my wonderful clients over the years, many of you have become like family. Thanks for sticking with me though the changes over the years, and especially the last year.

11/27/2020

I’m closed until further notice, as I have tested positive for Covid. I have a waiting list for anyone that wants to get on it now. Many thanks to the huge support and understanding of everyone I had to postpone. If you have an upcoming appointment scheduled, I will be in touch pending the next test results. I don’t want to cancel any more until I know more. I will post updates as I roll along, stay healthy, everyone! 🐶

11/14/2020

Oh, Reginald. You were just a sweet soul. I’ll miss you 😞💔

11/11/2020

Just a heads up, when leaving a message, please include a callback number! I’ve had two calls this week I can’t answer, so if one of those is you, please call back or best yet, text. My voicemail isn’t working properly, so there is no time stamp on the call to match to the number on my caller id. I get easily a dozen calls a day, so there’s no way to guess.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but if I haven’t returned your call, that’s why!

It is never easy. Ever.
Oh, my buddy Polo. You taught me so much. One of the most challenging dogs from day one, from puppy to senior, you always kept me on my guard.
Run free, and no one will ever groom you again. 😘🐾💔

Also, I thank his loving mom for letting me know. We always want to know.

Rest easy, dear pooooooodle. You were one in a million. Sebastian, Boo, Pooooooodle
💔😢

10/20/2020

It seems my voicemail isn’t working. Text, message, or email me. If you left a voicemail in the last several? days, I apologize, they aren’t coming through. I’ll get it sorted out as soon as I can!

09/13/2020

UPDATE: I am out of hospital, and on the mend. Taking a few days to rebook and return calls. Thank you all for your patience, and I hope to never go through this again!

09/09/2020

Hello friends. A quick update. If I haven’t responded to texts or calls, I’m sorry for the delay. Please bear with me, I’ve been in the hospital since this morning, and don’t know how long they will need to keep me. It’s not covid, but have been having some weird issues that some of you have known about throughout the summer. I will keep you posted as best I can. Thank you for your patience!

I’m behind on replying to messages, I will get back to all of you. Keeping up has been a bit overwhelming, I appreciate your patience.
Thank you!!! 🤗🤗🤗

UPDATE 5/14
I am still open, but I do plan to continue outdoor check in/out and remote payment until further notice.
Please call ahead for an appointment, since I’m still backed up. I will not have same week appointments or a cancellation list for a while.
I am not currently taking new clients. (Check back in a few weeks!)
Please be on time. Anyone more than 15 minutes late will be cancelled. Please do not show up early, unless you plan to wait until your appointment time.
If you show up at your appointment time, I am expecting you. There is no need to ring the bell, bang on the door, or touch the doorknob.
I’m still figuring out my timing, and I may fall behind. I very much appreciate your patience. I will still call/text when your dog is done, please don’t call or stop by to check, it’s a huge distraction.
I will ask for an approximate pick up time, to avoid overlapping. I very much appreciate dogs being picked up as close to that time as possible.
I’m working hard to keep things safe, and trying to be flexible as possible with all the restrictions. I thank you for working with me!

05/04/2020

UPDATE!
I’m chipping away at the waiting list. It takes a great deal of time, so bear with me! I’m grooming all day and spending hours at night on the list, but if you’re on it, I promise I will get to you.
I’ve decided to not accept new clients for now, I apologize for that. I will get to the new clients on my existing list, but appointments may not be until June. I’m working 7 days a week, there is just no wiggle room left.
The new protocols are a huge learning curve, and everything is taking twice as long. Dogs may be here longer than usual, and again, I so appreciate your patience. We got this! 💗

Wow. Ok friends, here we go! The ban on groomers was lifted by the governor today, effective 4/29, at 8 am. I’m getting back to you as soon as I can, bear with me, I will get to you. As always, thank you for your support. I have to change a few things to be in compliance to remain open. Appointment times MUST be adhered to. Sorry, no more letting late slide, I can’t have overlapping at all. I really have no wiggle room to reschedule. I understand things happen, please communicate.
Curb/driveway or porch check in/out only. Payment by cash, Venmo, or card by phone/text. All dogs go directly to tub. As always, I will call or text as I am finishing. I will need an exact pick up, due to the new protocols. We can do this! I’ve missed you!
Thank you for your support and patience. 💗🐕

Pet groomers are essential

We do more than cut hair. We are also way cleaner than big box stores. Sign if you agree, if you don’t, that’s ok too.

Pets are considered family members to their owners and getting regular grooming is essential to their health and wellness. Grooming salons have sanitary protocols in place to keep every owner and pet safe.

At least getting some long overdue upgrades done. Goodbye yucky carpet! A sparkling new floor awaits your return! This was a long awaited project that I never could shut down for. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Follow Erin. She has some great videos, and open for retail. Support local!
Erin used to work at Madra back in the storefront days. She may have groomed your dog!

I miss you!
Please, if you need help, have questions, call, text, message me. I can walk you through brushing, combing, and proper bathing techniques.
If you are considering buying clippers or using kitchen shears, I am here for advice 🤗
Please be careful with sharp tools, emergency vet visits are never fun or cheap! 💗🐶🐾

Some great info!

Some great info!

Public Service Announcement‼
We sadly anticipate an increase of surrenders due to this very preventable behavior. Please do what you can to prevent it. If you have never owned a dog with separation anxiety be aware it can be one of the hardest challenges to deal with.

Ok, this is an idea a friend posted. I really like this for the original content, and the food/drink folks need help too! I thought I’d throw this out there, because, some people may need their dogs groomed but can’t afford it after all this.

*EDITED FOR CONTENT*

Here is a thing you can do to support local businesses that are still open, or will be soon! And also help people who might be out of a job for the time being. Let's say you are fortunate enough to have a job still. And maybe you make a decent amount of money. And because we are all quarantining, this money is just piling up. What are you going to spend it on? So, why don't you call up your favorite local business that is either still open, or would re-open temporarily for a special occasion, or after quarantine, such as a restaurant, a bar/tavern, or a coffee shop, (insert DOG GROOMER here) and tell them "Here's my credit card number, or Venmo. Please charge, for example, $300 to my card, and then put out the word through your social media platforms and whatnot that for the next X hours or until the money is gone, (or when dog groomer can reopen) you can come to our business and we will give you a cup of coffee to go, or a Bloody Mary to go, or a sandwich to go, for free, thanks to our wonderful and generous friend, (You). Tips not included. Limit $10 (dog groomer may adjust this, so more people could enjoy a discounted grooming, possibly a fully free urgent case) per person." Or something like that!

If not the dog groomer, then your local coffee spot, foodie place, or pub.

I would take people for the call list and adjust discounts based on each individual, etc.
Service people, seniors, vets, students...

I would also make a tally with how many humans and their dogs your generous donation helped!

Unfortunately, I would have to have a few restrictions that I have in place currently, based on my physical limitations, but I will recruit that husband of mine and do what we can as a team to accommodate as many as possible!

04/02/2020

I really have the best people! Thank you all for your continued support. If you want to get on the call list, let me know. Prepay is also an option. Thank you all that have, it really helps!
Fingers and paws crossed this ends soon!
Stay well.

I opened 16 years ago today (no fooling!)
I sure didn’t expect I’d be closed and taking a forced vacation on my sweet 16th. Hoping to reopen soon. Stay safe everyone!

03/30/2020

My call list is at 40. I strongly recommend you get on the list now, so you can get in sooner. As things stand right now, I plan to open May 1.
Fingers and paws crossed!

To avoid the dreaded shave down we are all anticipating, you can do some simple home maintenance.

You Tube has some great tutorials on line brushing.
All you need are two tools.

Slicker brush
Metal comb

Combing is key, it gets what the brush can miss.
Brush/comb from root to tip to make sure you’re getting more than just the top coat.

Brush and comb before and after bathing. Matted hair will get worse when wet.

Put the kitchen shears down, walk away. You don’t want a vet bill.

I am officially closed until the shutdown is over, or until further notice.
I have started a list for future appointments, for when I am up and running again.
I encourage you to get on this list, as I expect to be very busy once this blows over. As soon as I can open, I will call and book people on the list in order. Sign up now to ensure a spot, you can call, text, comment, message.
Also, you can purchase credit now for future grooming. I will accept Venmo (@Helena-Whitten-1) or credit card by phone. Your digital receipt may be used as proof of purchase.
If you wish to purchase credit and donate to friend in need (thanks to my friend Dan for that idea!), please contact me for details.
Thank you for your patience and continued support.
If you need help with at home maintenance tips, PLEASE reach out to me, I am here to help!
We will get through this together!

Stay safe, be well, and see you on the flip side. 🐶💗

I am still open!
I book each appointment every half hour, so there is only one human in at a time.
I wipe down all doorknobs and surfaces all day.
All dogs go directly into the tub.
Hand sanitizer is on my counter for you to use.

I strongly urge you to book an appointment NOW, in the event of a forced closure. A shorter haircut this week could last you 6-8 weeks. I still have a few spots for the remainder of this week.

If you wish to purchase credit towards future grooming, I am happy to do that by phone.

Successful nail trim/grind with this bad boy.....no muzzle, just a soft cone around his neck while I held him. He didn't even growl at Helena! Relieved to know that we can get into a regular groove with this. He finally trusts me after a year and 3 months.....
pearl would like to come and lick you on saturday, while you possible cut her nails? :) hehe
We used to bring our Pit Diamond to you guys years ago for grooming. We have a Husky puppy now (16 weeks) and are looking for a groomer for her. Are you taking new clients now? Thanks
just left you a message, Pearly would love to see you this morning for a nail trim if you have time
She gives her all to take care of your dogs, please show her how much you appreciate it!
Pearl has a vet appointment at 9:30 tomorrow, can she pop in after for a nail trim?
Stalin the pug wants you to know that he's had a couple of surgeries lately (rough couple months) and they trimmed his nails while under, but you're still his groomer so he'll be in soon to swing in the hammock!
Can pearl still come in around 12?
can pearl come saturday for her nails? She wants to look good for her next UFC fight ;)
any openings Saturday for pearly to get her nails done? She's thinking mani pedi with a polish change ;)
