Meet Sharon Thalmann, Our Owner

Sharon Thalmann’s introduction to the business was as unusual as it was tragic. “I left my dog to a groomer,” Thalmann said. While there, her pet fell out of a tub and broke his neck. The loss was so great that Thalmann, dog lover that she is (she currently owns five dogs) decided to learn the dog grooming and care business herself, and went back to school to learn the trade.


1996, Thalmann started her enterprise as a one woman operation that offered mobile dog grooming. Back then, she travelled to her customer’s homes to deliver doggie makeovers. Then she opened the spa at 819 Waukegan Road. Now, with a brick and mortar locale, she employs five dog groomers under one roof.
