Hello, my name is Maggi!
I’m the owner of Best In Show. I grew up in Sonoma County and I have loved and cared for animals for as long as I can remember. I started riding and training horses at a young age and was a volunteer puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence. It was volunteering for CCI where I developed a passion for training dogs. As I got older, I continued to compete my horses and began to learn how to train working sheep dogs, obedience, and basic agility. As I gravitated more towards handling dogs, I started working at a local kennel and was recruited for grooming. I began to apprentice as a groomer and discovered a new passion for 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.
