A Minor Setback for a Major Comeback

Juanita Harris meets challenges head-on. Losing her job just days after finding out she was pregnant for the first time, Juanita persisted through the difficult and emotional time. It proved to be a minor setback for a big comeback. Since then, she has built a ten-year grooming career, finding purpose, inspiration and community through give-back charity grooming tours.

Melissa’s Story

Working with naughty dogs is my passion. When someone has a dog that is difficult to work with, I will try to correct their behavior over time and gain their trust. A Shih Tzu came to me that had never let its previous groomers clean out his eye corners.
