Welcome to Pawsitively Elegant
Pawsitively Elegant, a mobile-spa for cats and dogs (up to 45 lbs).
Launched summer 2021, now your furry family member can experience a calm, safe, and top-quality grooming experience with an award-winning groomer steps from home.
Based out of Gainesville, Virginia and surrounding areas including Haymarket, Bristow, and Aldie
Serving pawrents in the Gainesville area or within a 10-mile radius.
I have meet-up locations around for out of area requests so you can run errands while you wait.
I am a second generation pet groomer. Basically, since birth I have been a part of the grooming world watching, learning, and working alongside my mother in her grooming business in Florida.
I continued following in my mother's footsteps becoming a full-time, professional groomer in 2002. In 2005 I began working for a Nationally Certified Master Groomer in Florida. In 2007, I became a three-time competition winner in both hand-stripping and hand scissored categories.
In 2015 I moved to Northern Virgina with my husband. After six more years working in salons in northern Virginia, I began my long-held dream to launch a mobile business where I can bring top-quality and customized care right to the homes of my clients.
I love what I do and animals are my passion. This is why I continue investing a lot of time and TLC into creating a spa-like setting for both dogs and cats. When our pets feel calm, safe, and in a clean environment, the difference in the cut and cleaning is night and day.
A "pawsitive" experience for every client is my top goal.
I keep an eye on current styles, am constantly training, and always enjoy working with clients to get the right style and care regime. I hold certifications in:
Feline grooming & safety
Fear free grooming/care
Hand stripping for dogs
I am a French Bulldog enthusiast, an avid book lover, a human mom to Brianna and Gabriel, and a rag doll cat mom to Gandalf and Teferi.
Think Spa for pets!
Imagine your dog and cat having dedicated, one-on-one time in a zen environment being pampered. It's what Pawsitively Elegant is all about: personalized TLC.
Calming music, aromatherapy for more anxious personalities, high-quality shampoos & conditioners, state-of-the-art dryers for faster drying times, a grooming table that can lift up beloved older pups, and the latest tools for any type of cut, coat or fur-type. Let's not forget a healthy treat (with permission, of course) to top off the visit.
Before I begin grooming on your first visit, your pet will be given time to explore the van to get comfortable with their new salon... and then the magic happens while you are going about your day.
