  • Hair of the Dog to Open and Offer Pet Grooming Options

    LANCASTER — After grooming pets for her mother, Sally Hardwick decided to do it for a living and will open her own shop Oct. 3 at 431 N. Columbus St.

    "My mother used to breed various breeds of dogs," she said. "And she would always need them cleaned up a little bit. I had a pair of clippers, and I'd look in a magazine, look in a book, look at pictures, and would clean the dog for her. Then one day, I was shaving someone's dog on the front porch and I thought, 'You know, I should get into it.' "

    So Hardwick got a job with another groomer who taught her the business and has been a professional pet groomer for three years now.

    Hair of the Dog will offer baths, hair cuts, nail trimming, flea treatment and other services dogs and cats may need. Hardwick also will offer house calls to help relieve the stress some pets experience when being groomed away from their normal environment..

    She said she decided to open her new location because she got tired of grooming pets in her kitchen when she wasn't making house calls.....
