My name is Ashley and I'm a dog trainer. I have been a dog trainer for nearly 6 years. During my time as a trainer, I would get asked if I knew any good groomers or anyone who made treats or cut nails. I never did, really. My clients wished that I did and that I was their one go to gal for all their dog needs, especially grooming since I knew their dogs so well already.
Because of all the wishes, I taught myself how to groom. I started mobile nail trims at a very affordable cost and was self taught on how to give the perfect doggy spa.
After taking a year to learn the ropes of what dog breeds needed what care, proper ear cleaning, allergies/dry skin, pad protection, teeth brushing techniques, and even mastering those cute haircuts (which took the longest), I was finally ready to offer the service.
I have been doing doggy spa days for 4 years and have been loved by so many pups and preferred by so many owners. It was all so humbling.
When I was finally confident enough to start charging for the grooming (haircut/trim) part of the spa, it all changed.
See, I only ever charged for the spa but never the cut/trim because I wanted to be confident in myself first. Others loved my work and were confident in me and said I was ready, but I wasn't.
I got a message that someone (neighbor most likely) reported me as having a business in my home, which violates zoning regulations. News to me because I wasn't bothering anyone. This was done just to hurt me and it did.
I found so much joy in offering this service to everyone and so many are saddened that this happened. Whomever reported me hurt me and so many others and I want to do something about that.
I'm asking for help in funding a mobile grooming unit, so I can continue providing as I always have. This is my passion. Working with dogs is my passion, whether I'm training or grooming.
My goal is to have a mobile unit with treats on board for the full experience!
Sadly, because I only charged so little, I never profited much and need your help to make this happen for me and all the puppers who are missing me right now. I want this badly.
