Meet Our Team!

Jessie, Dog Stylist & Salon Owner

I am one of the owners here at Wuf. I own and handle a Bichon Frise named Midas that I show in AKC conformation. You may see him hanging out at the salon with me! I would be thrilled to have my schedule filled with Bichons, or Golden Retrievers. I frequently continue my education and try to take as many private lessons and classes as I can. I enjoy working with clients to help them achieve their style goals. Breed specific trims are my favorite type of grooming to do. When I'm not grooming, I'm at home being a mom to my two toddlers, and 7 dogs! I hope someday I can teach my kids all about the art of grooming! You will typically hear back from me when booking appointments or asking questions about our spa, customer service is usually all handled by me. I love owning my own salon!

Jonny, Dog Stylist & Salon Owner

Jonny has dreamed of owning his own grooming salon for many years, and was inspired to work with pets to give back after losing his dog Starr. He loves doing "extreme makeovers" on dogs who need extra care with matted or neglected coats. Jonny also loves grooming senior dogs, and really enjoys giving them a gentle spa day in a slow paced facility. Grooming puppies is also one of his favorite things to do, he loves challenges and enjoys making dogs feel comfortable with grooming. He is our only stylist that offers cording. Jonny also loves being a dad to our two boys, and taking care of our own dogs. Jonny plans to show his Standard Poodle, Astro in AKC conformation, and has been taking private lessons for poodle grooming.
