About Us
Hello, my name is Maggi!

 

I grew up in Sonoma County and have loved and cared for animals for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been surrounded by dogs and horses, I started riding and competing and fell in love with being an equestrian.  Like many equestrians I always had dogs, but I wanted more, I wanted to be able to help someone.   I was introduced to volunteering for Canine Companions for Independence as a puppy raiser. It was there that I developed a passion for training dogs.  As I got older, I continued to compete horses and started learning how to train working sheep dogs, agility, and obedience.  I gravitated more towards handling dogs and started working at a local kennel where I was introduced to grooming and discovered a new passion in animal care.

I’ve now been grooming professionally for over 7 years and opened Best In Show in 2014.  I believe it is important to keep honing my skills by taking grooming courses, going to seminars, and taking private lessons. Ultimately, my goal is to become a Certified Master Groomer and I am currently training to reach that level.

When you come to visit us at Best In Show, you will be greeted by a welcoming committee of cats and dogs.  We are a family owned and operated grooming salon and we appreciate that your pet is a valued family member and we promise to make them feel safe and comfortable during their groom.

  • Asian Fusion Seminar February  11 2018 with a private lesson from Kenichi Nagase
  • Kerry Blue Seminar March 25 2018 with Master Groomers Nancy Han and Kumi Tachikake
  • Poodle Grooming 101 July 15 2018 with Master Groomers Ann Martin and Irina Pinkusevich
