Animals have always been a passion of mine.  So, when I set out to become a pet stylist, nothing but the best would do.  I attended Merryfield School of Pet Grooming in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, where I was taught by internationally recognized world champion Master Groomers.  The instructors are truly the best in the field of pet grooming.  Upon graduating, I worked as an apprentice in several grooming salons in both Florida and South Carolina in order to sharpen my skills; always with the goal of returning to my home in Pickens to open a shop of my own.  My vision was to combine my skills with an environment that put both my clients and their pets at ease.  I hope you will call and make an appointment to come see for yourself the difference skilled grooming makes.  I know that Upstate Top Dog will meet or exceed your expectations.  As you browse these web pages, take a moment to read the testimonials written by my loyal clients.  I think you will find Upstate Top Dog to be the clear choice for you and your pet!
