Carlos Chaves

Carlos believes the essential ingredient for a successful groom is to approach each dog as an individual. I take into account the dog’s breed and personality, the owner’s wishes and lifestyle, and any breed standards that might be requested. Alpha Grooming invests heavy in the top quality organic products to make sure not only your pet smell clean but his hair cut looks outstanding.

Gabriely Silva

Before coming to Alpha Grooming Jessica worked as a bather/kennel attendant/receptionist. There I learned everything I needed to know to be able to bathe a dog as well as quickly dry them so that the groomers were able to get them finished. I mainly worked with the big dogs due to my being able to pick them up and handle them easily. I’ve just graduated from Alpha  Grooming as a Professional Groomer. I was hired while still working as a student which helped me realize how much I really enjoyed grooming dogs. All of the leadership and teaching from my instructors is much appreciated and I hope to become as good as them one day. I very much enjoy the environment of my workplace and I love being able to work with the students and help them in any way that I can.
