Meet the Team
Hello, I would love to meet you dog! I am Nataly, a Dog lover, Disney fan & a proud dog mom of a Chihuahua named Paquita. I love to interact with people & be organized
Hi l'm Denisse. I graduated high school in June this year. I love spending time with animals since I was little, and this is because they can teach you more than you expect. In the last months l've learned that patience and dedication are fundamental keys to understand our pets needs. I am looking forward to keep learning the importance appropriate to taking care of our little friends 4 and give them the best treatment at our services, as well as their owners
My dad taught me not to be afraid of hard work and I have always loved dogs. Being with dogs entertains me and it gives me great satisfaction to see the final result, all clean and fluffy. Making a connection with them is one of the best feelings
My first pet was a cocker spaniel named Daisy. I loved playing with her, feeding her, smelling her, she was my companion everywhere and in everything I did (besides my brother). Years after we adopted a cat from the shelter, I remember begging and begging my parents to get a cat. I even wrote them letters of why I wanted a cat and how I was going to take care of her. I remember the day she came home she was so terrified she hid behind the couch for days but eventually she came out and became part of the family, I also named her Daisy. When Daisy the 2nd passed we went to the shelter and adopted a beautiful Siberian looking cat with green/yellow eyes. I remember my arms would always be scratched but I just loved her, I didn’t mind at all. Can you guess what her name was? Yup Daisy again, it’s a bit ironic since us groomers are supposed to be very creative…I guess I lack that in naming.
As a little girl it was clear for me that I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I started to grow up and I started thinking of a career path so I decided that I wanted to work with animals and made the decision to be a Veterinarian. I was living on my own, working and going to college. Suddenly I realized that it was going to take a long time (FOREVER) to graduate so I decided that I wanted to work in a field while going to school so that I would be able to work with animals.
I researched and I finally landed on DOG GROOMER, at the moment I had the cutest dog named Greñas and I took a course/certification and practiced on him. To this day I believe Greñas was a human soul, I can’t even begin to explain the connection we had with each other (he’s the dog tattooed on my arm). I started working as a groomer from home because that way I was able to continue going to school and set my own work schedule. Eventually I rented a space/section inside a grooming salon. Shortly after I realized I had a passion for my work and that I was highly talented as a groomer. I had a lot of customers and said to myself “I have a passion for this profession, I am going to open my own shop” easier said than done right? But in February of 2016 Urban Pet was opened. I wanted to offer superior service and quality and I stand by that to this day. Quality above Quantity. I have to admit it was not an easy process opening my own shop, there was more to it than I could have ever imagined.
With time I began to get extremely busy, so I hired on help; reception, bather(s), groomer(s), talented people who also share my passion and ideals to be able to fulfill the demand. However we do work with the same ideals; by appointments, we do not overbook ourselves, have determined grooming times, safety, comprehension, technique, organization, communication, discipline, cleanliness, transparency, commitment, attention to detail, and passion for what we do. Today I have more than 10 years of experience working as a professional Certified Dog Groomer through IPG International Professional Groomers. Me and my shop are proudly certified as AKC S.A.F.E as well.
I am a doggie/cat mom of four; Marley (13 year old Doberman), Frida (7 year old French Bulldog), Vitola (5 year old Great Dane) and Gizmo AKA Guizzy Boy (13 year old Persian cat, who by the way used to be my customer) I am happily married and a mother of two beautiful little girls so yea I am always busy but in love with my life.
I am extremely grateful for all the support the community has given me through these past 7 years and our AWESOME customers who spread the word about us. Urban Pet is not just a groomer, it’s a team of passionate individuals who strive to give their all in their work. I could not be more happy and grateful with the employees who have helped shape what we are.
