Katie's Dog Grooming



Hello I’m Katie

I am a Plainfield native, grew up in South Jersey and returned to Plainfield in 1991. I’m married and have 2 beautiful daughters Delaney and Anna that you may occasionally see working here at the shop. We have 3 dogs Piggy a Boston Terrier, Squirt a Jack Russell mix and Boo a Pit Bull. I enjoy spending time camping and boating with family and friends. 20 years ago I started out as a bather and  received groomer training with my job. I have worked at a couple of local grooming salons in the area and decided to start my own business out of my home. After 3 years of grooming in my home I moved my business to the downtown area we have been growing ever since. I am very blessed to have a job that I love. I’m very proud to say that we don’t advertise much and most of our clients come from word of mouth. From past experience in grooming salons I knew I wanted to do something different. I want the grooming experience to be positive and gain a relationship with the dog. Through the years I have realized that it is all about trust! When the dog trusts me my job is easier and their experience is better.


Hello I’m Robin Phelps, I was a former groomer to the Avon area. I have 3 years of experience and chose to further my career with a smaller family owned business that puts the care of the dogs first! I am married to the luckiest man on earth! We have two adopted pit bulls, Cairo and Bruiser. I love to read and cook and spend time with my family. I also like to help my cousins with their 4-H pigs

 

Meet Our Groomers

 


Hello, my name is Missy Schober. I am married and have two cats, named Mitt and Bravo. In my spare time my husband and I enjoy camping and being outdoors. We have started a new venture, we opened our own business called Better Being Float Center. It is a way to help people relax and de-stress in a healthy way. I have been working at Katie’s since November of 2008. I have always loved being around animals ever since I was a little kid. Working here is great, I love the people I work with and I find this job to be very rewarding. It’s great at the end of the day to know you made your customers happy, and to see them smile when you give them their freshly groomed dog.
