Tasha and I in 1996

I'm the, Owner of Loving & Gentle Dog Grooming in Kingman, Arizona. 
I've been dog grooming for 40 years, and specialize in small breeds.  

I feel small dogs need a special loving touch, and I strive to give them that.  
I'v recently relocated to Kingman ,AZ from the Issaquah, WA area. 

I'm keen to expand my business in Kingman , Arizona and surrounding areas of Golden Valley, Mohave, Bullhead city, Lake Havasu, Laughlin, Nevada Ive had people traveling many miles over the years just to have me groom their beloved dog. 

I offer discounts to First Time clients,  and also have a great referral program! 

I originally worked for a top toy breed handler, and a top poodle handler. I bred and showed white miniature poodles for 16 years, and had 20 plus American champions. 
When my best friend Poodle Tasha died of cancer, I quit breeding poodles.

A year later, I fell in love with a Shiba Inu, Katie, who  recently went to the rainbow bridge at 16 1/2 years old
Two years later I found a second Shiba Inu, Natalie
​I showed her through her Conformation Championship, and she also has her excellent agility titles. 
Her and I trained for 5 years before I was able to go to trials with her. 
It was quite the challenge, but I'm so glad I did it. Natalie recently went to the rainbow bridge just shy of 14 yrs old on 10-9-2012 RIP Sweet girl.
I also bred and showed Chinese Cresteds for a few years. Breeder of one champion. 

Now owned by Hope , White miniature poodle born 7-13-2012  ,Shiba Inu, Faith, Born 1-20-2014 and Shiba Inu , Kismet born 5-5-2016
