  • Mobile Groomer Has It

    Amanda Johnson, left, owner of Barking Beauties, poses with Brodie, one of her many satisfied customers after a recent trim and bath. Barking Beauties provides mobile dog grooming service to the Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska tri-state area.

    For the past eight years, Amanda Johnson's business has gone to the dogs...literally. Johnson is the owner of Barking Beauties, a mobile dog grooming business based in the Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska tri-state area. It wasn't her first choice of profession, but she has come to love what she does.

    "I originally wanted to be a veterinarian, but it was too much schooling," said Johnson. "I love animals, it's a passion of mine so I decided to do grooming instead."

    Johnson chose to work out of a customized mobile van rather than set up shop in a brick and mortar building due to cost concerns.

    "For me to buy a building alone would have cost between $70-80,000," Johnson added. "The cost of the mobile unit was $37,000 - nearly half the price and it was built to my needs.".............
