Meet our Pet Stylists - Tina - Mary - Debbie - Jaclyn - Lynn - Capt. Marty
"Tina has had a lifelong career in grooming. It all began as a summer job in high school, working for her aunt, a well known business woman in New Jersey. In 2005, Tina moved to the sunshine state between Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne. What a welcome! She loves her job at DGF and is happy to be able to work independently in a fun atmosphere. Her kind nature and intuitiveness makes her a hit with the four legged clients. She is an exceptional groomer and can work with any breed but her specialty is feline. She is DGF's #1 cat groomer. Tina is featured with Cooper - a real sweetheart! She loves to bake, bike and go to the beach and when the opportunity presents itself, she will get another Rottweiler. She has two children, one is a son in the Navy and 2 grandchildren."
"MARY - DGF Salon Manager
After many years in the construction industry, Mary decided to choose a career she would love. Her passion to work with animals led her to pursue a career in grooming. She has a special touch for working with timid, scared and difficult dogs that don't like to be groomed. She has a gentle touch and compassionate spirit which also extends to her Pekinese rescue named Lisa. You can see Lisa in the picture with Mary, along with her boyfriend Fredo.
She has three children, 1 grandchild and is an avid cook in her spare time."
"Say hi to ‘Jack’ (Jaclyn) who considers herself just a ‘small-town’ girl from Florida. Her love of dogs drew her to her work at a kennel and then decided to learn the grooming field. She began learning the trade at the same groomer Sue, the owner, learned from, but Jack bartered for her grooming lessons by working around the salon. Jack has been grooming for a year now and is the newest edition to DGF. Jack lives with her 3 year old Pit Bull rescue, Mahi and loves to do anything outside. Her favorite ‘thangs’ are fishin’, muddin’, campin’ and hikin’ (as she would pronounce it). She also claims she makes the best mac and cheese EVER! Jack’s specialty is grooming poodles and bichons and her ‘thang’ is she loves to call everyone toots. She’s a real sweetheart and will treat your sweetheart as if it were hers!"
"Debbie has been in the dog business for the better part of 30 years - grooming, training and raising champion shelties. She is originally from Canton, Ohio and is the newest member of the DGF grooming team.She turned a hobby into a passion for training dogs and has spent the last 15 years involved in agility and confirmation training specifically for the sheltie breed. She has two shelties named Ditto and Splash. Splash is her champion! And she is the proud grandparent of three - one girl and two boys."
"Lynn is DGF’s real Jersey Shore girl. Originally from Neptune, New Jersey, Lynn has an enormous base of knowledge with 35 years of grooming animals. She was taught her craft from a hands-on owner/groomer in New Jersey at an early age and went on to own 2 salons, Barkers Alley in Tequesta and Canine Coral in Jupiter Farms which she sold upon the birth of her children. She also has worked for many years in the Jupiter area prior to joining Dog Gone Fancy. Lynn is an energetic and outgoing mom who loves people, crafting, camping, mud fests, the beach, and all sports. Her daughter shows horses and Lynn loves being involved and assisting her daughter with her animal passion also. Mo Mo is Lynn’s 7 month old Morkey (Maltese/Yorkie) and her specialty is not only grooming terriers, but she also has a very special way of sharing her grooming skills with—what we call difficult-attitude dogs. Lynn’s experience is hard to find. Let her tame the lion out of your animal."
"Captain Marty and his first mate Duncan
You can find Marty at DGF on Saturdays since his full time job during the week is as a Project Manager at CMI. As a de-stressor from the corporate world, Marty volunteers on Saturdays to help with bathing or support for the full time groomers. Marty also bathes his own dog Duncan. Notice in the picture that Rod Stewart resembles Marty so watch for him around town. He'll be happy to give you his autograph!"
"It's all about the dogs and cats". That's the first thing Sue will say that makes her business successful. Every action at DGF is for the benefit of the four-legged clients. She ensures that her DGF staff is attentive to the safety, health and welfare of all animals that step through her door.
Her staff will say that she makes everyone feel welcome - customers, four-legged clients and employees! She is hands-on, high energy, but with her kind and thoughtful nature, is a mentor to her groomers. She has developed the concept of 'cage-less' environment so no dog is required to be caged when they spend time at DGF. She is constantly on the lookout for ways to improve her 'royal treatments' and to make the environment pleasant and fun for everyone.
Sue works closely with Coastal Poodle Rescue which is where she rescued her toy poodle Lea. Her contribution to Coastal Poodle Rescue is a free groom for those dogs getting ready to go to their forever homes.
She also works closely with Dr. Bob Miles at North Palm Beach Animal Clinic who is practically located next door. She wants everyone to know that at DGF,
