    Opening Date: June 1, 2012

    What does this business do?

    I do dog grooming, nail trims, baths and brushing.

    What was this impetus for opening this business?

    I worked with animals my whole life and I enjoy grooming dogs.

    What is the best thing about being located in DeMotte?

    I love working locally and working in a small town. I like to work with people and it’s not so commercialized. Plus I’m only four minutes from home.

    What is the biggest challenge?

    My biggest challenge is the bookkeeping. Finding time to do it all. We’re here six days a week.

    When is your busiest time of the year?

    Our busiest time is April through August.

    What is the most popular thing you sell/service you provide?

    Grooming is the most popular. It consists of a hair cut, bath, nails, glands, ears and cologne, which is optional but not an extra cost.

    What is the thing you most like to do as part of your business?

    Grooming, I’ve been a dog person all my life. I started working for a veterinarian when I was 15.

    What is the best thing about owning your own business?

    I like being my own boss the best.
