We offer grooming!! We now have two certified groomers here at Rustebakke Veterinary Service! Carol has been certified since March 2015, and Danya just recently received her certification!
"I decided to become a groomer after I was able to help do a clip on a dog here at the clinic. After I did a couple convenient cuts, I wanted to get more creative with the styles and I wanted to learn how to do breed-specific cuts. I groomed a dog named Kaya, and she really helped me decide to go to school to become a groomer. I took online classes, as well as watched some videos and I helped teach myself. You’re never too old to start a career. I love what I do and I would never change it!" -Carol
"As a groomer I saw an opportunity to have a career and be a role-model for my daughter. I find joy in making the animal clean and cute and the owner happy. It’s amazing to see the finished look. I helped Carol with a lion cut on a cat and that’s when I decided I wanted to do this. My favorite part of this job is trimming the ears and feet with shears and when the clippers are cutting the hair. I would like to learn the A.K.C. cuts so I can advance in my career." -Danya
