Jamie graduated from The Tom Rose School of Grooming after working as a bather/brusher for a year at Kennelwood in 1996. She is a certified All Breed Pet Stylist. Jamie has been on our team since 2013.
For 12 years she worked for Virginia Book, a wonderful groomer/business owner. Her specialty is grooming fearful/nervous/hard to handle dogs. She applies what she learned as a certified positive reinforcement trainer to help calm them and make their grooming experience as pleasant as possible. Jamie strives to have her grooming dogs finished and back to the owner within 4 hours but sometimes that’s not possible because she does not rush while grooming, it makes the dogs nervous and fearful. Jamie received an award from St Louie Tail’s Magazine in 2009 for being one of the Reader’s Choice’s most popular groomers in St. Louis. Jamie is also deeply involved in animal rescue. She volunteers at Stray Rescue’s shelter on 18th St. once a week, fosters dogs and hold adoption events for Gateway Pet Guardians. She has been awarded “Foster of the Year” for the last three years in a row. She currently has three foster dogs living with her own five dogs. Jamie enjoys fostering feral dogs and rehabilitating them. She loves watching them transform from fearful and sickly to affectionate, happy and healthy dogs ready to go on to their forever homes. Jamie also co-owns and operates a small pet service business, Lucky Dog Pet Services, LLC with her roommate and friend Virgil. They offer pet sitting and private in-home certified positive reinforcement training. You can reach Lucky Dog at 314-623-9879 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. She’s looking forward to meeting you and making your dogs look and feel great!
