Candi has been in the business for over 25 years. All dogs are given very special care and treated with extra kindness. No dog is cage dried and they are completely dired with a hand-held blow dryer. She does not use any tranquilizers or muzzles, just EZ collars. Owners are invited to “wait and watch” while their pet is being groomed as Candi says, “I am always visible to my customers.” Candi adds that finishing touch by giving each animal either a bow or a bandana.
