My name is Carrie, I am 51 yrs. old, happily married mother of 2 boys and a lover of all animals. I have 3 dogs, a cat, a bearded dragon, ferret & fish. I have bred English Bulldogs in the past and I previously was a licensed real estate agent for 10 years. I have added to my career and became a professional pet groomer, something I wish I would have done many many years ago. But I am a firm believer in..... it's never too late to start and learn something new.
I have been grooming Cats and Dogs for just about 6 years. I am a graduate of the Florida Institute of Animal Arts. I completed a 900 hour course in Professional Pet Styling/Grooming and on Nov. 4, 2011 graduated at the top of my class with a 98.9% GPA on the final written test and a 100% on hands on grooming. I received a Student Recognition Award, a Student Acheivement Award which is the highest award given for completing a score of over a 95% GPA, and also my Professional Pet Styling/Grooming Diploma. I am also Animal CPR certified so you can feel safe knowing that your pet is in great care, and should a problem arise know that we are prepared and qualified to aid in Animal CPR.
In the very begining, I opened up my own pet grooming salon on my home property and my husband and father in law renovated a shed on my home property into a fully equipt pet grooming salon. Business took off and to our surprise we out grew the salon in just a year and a half. My husband quit his profession of a block mason of 23 years and began to help me with bathing and prepping. Its been an absolute blessing. We have rented a store front right off of Hwy 50/East Colonial. Less than 2 miles from the salon on my home property. My prices are and will always be affordable, hence the name ARFordable Pet Grooming. We would love to become you and your pets new Favorite Pet Groomers. You can save on your pet's grooming by allowing me the opportunity to groom your beloved pet.
