Meet Chelsea! Joining our Lafayette Square Grooming Team!
We’re excited to have Chelsea Hudspeth join us at our Lafayette Square grooming team!
Chelsea is grooming on
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday’s!
Chelsea comes from a long family tradition of four generations of dog
grooming, breeding, boarding, training and ownership. Chelsea’s great
grandparents owned and operated a kennel with grooming in St. Louis as well as her Grandfather and Grandmother owning shops in St. Louis and
Springfield, Illinois.Â Chelsea’s Mother also owned and operated Unleashed Grooming shop (not affiliated with Petco) in St. Louis for 20+ years and now has a shop in La Jolla, California. So, needless to say dogs and grooming
run in their blood.
Her training was working under her Mother for her entire
childhood grooming family and friend’s dogs and officially grooming for her
Mom at Unleashed for three years in the Webster Groves shop. When Mom moved to California Chelsea continued to groom and is now happy to call Four Muddy Paws her new work home. Chelsea lives in south city so Four Muddy Paws made sense on every level.
Chelsea is a perfect fit for the Four Muddy Paws philosophy ofÂ caring for our pets. The family tradition of grooming has always been to treat the dogs with respect and fairness. Grooming does NOT have to be a miserable experience for the dogs and quite the contrary, her family has developed positive techniques that actually train the dog to enjoy the grooming shop experience. A happy dog makes for a better groom, a happy owner and groomer. Chelsea prides herself on keeping the dogs happy, safe and comfortable and the owners can tell this when they pick up a calm, happy well-groomed dog.
Chelsea has two dogs currently but she’s always up for expansion. Penny is
an adorable French Bulldog and Henry is an American Bulldog that is the
class clown of the family. Chelsea is also the proud mother of a beautiful
one year old baby boy, Miles who is her pride and joy to say the least.
Chelsea is excited to embark (pun intended) on her new career at Four Muddy Paws and is excited to meet new customers and their beloved dogs as well as bringing quite a few longtime clients/dogs with her to our beautiful retail and grooming shop.
