We are dedicated to pampering your pooch!
I have always had a soft spot for animals, especially dogs. When I was younger my family owned fish, ducks, gerbils, hamsters, Guinea pigs, cats, and dogs. Our dog, Lucky, was always my favorite. I got my own dog, Shirley, when I was 16 years old and fell in love. She has been by my side since and the relationship/bond between us has only grown stronger. It is one of unconditional love. I am so excited to experience that with all types of dogs and make sure the clients little friends are as comfortable and happy as possible while they are away. I can’t wait to make new furry friends!
Dog Handler and Weekend Caretaker
My whole life I have been fur baby lover. Working at the spa is such a wonderful thing because I am around all different personalities. I love spending my days with these precious babies. To me these are not just dogs, they are my babies and I enjoy working with the staff we have. Here, we all take pride in this job because when you drop off your babies to me, they become my babies.
Client Relations, Food Prep & Social Media
It has always been a dream of mine to work with dogs. A few years ago a therapy dog came into my life and helped me through a very hard time. Since then, I have become very passionate about working with therapy and assistance dogs. I love working at the Atlanta Dog Spa because not only am I getting amazing hands on experience, but I also get to spend all day cuddling and playing with your dogs. And getting to know their unique personalities. I couldn’t ask for a better more fulfilling job.
I enjoy working at Atlanta Dog Spa because I get to spend time with dogs. I never had a dog growing up but always wanted one and I currently don’t live in a place that allows pets. So it gives me joy to be able to come to work and spend time with all the dogs.
Master Dog Trainer/Manager of the Dog Handlers/Bilingual in 4 languages
Almost all my life I was surrounded by animals. I grew up with dogs, cats, birds, etc, and it made me want to study Veterinary Science and raise labs in my country, Peru. Now I have the opportunity to work with dogs: actually, it is not like you are working, because you like what you do. The dogs are amazing and every time that you see their faces, you can tell if they are happy, sad, or in pain; if you learn how to read that you could be the next Cesar. I’m very happy that I can work here with them, and the excellent people around.
Dog Handler/Client Relations/Front Office/Bilingual
I love working at ADS because there is nothing more rewarding than caring for happy animals. And on top of that, I’ve met a wonderful group of people who love dogs, and all animals for that matter, just as much as I do. And my puppy gets to make new friends all the time. Score score if you ask me.
Mini Dog Handler
The reason why I like working at the dog spa is because I get to play with the little dogs. It is fun and I get to meet new people. I also get to watch the dogs play. It’s also awesome that the dogs watch movies– that is cool!
Today’s way of life demands so much of our time. I work at Atlanta Dog Spa for the animals: to be there for them in place of those who are unable to spend all of their time with their animals. I can show them the love and affection they deserve, and give them the attention they need while their parents are busy.
I love being able to work with dogs. It is very therapeutic and it is fun getting to find out all the quirks and personalities of the fur babies.
I love working at Atlanta Dog Spa because I really do love Dogs. I love them All, they really are Mans best friend. It’s great working here because the Dogs are very happy and very well taken care of. That is very important to Me and I treat all the Dogs the way I treat my own Dogs. It’s a very happy place to work for Me and My awesome canine friends love it here too.
Canine Stylist/Dog Grooming/Creative Grooming Design
My name is Anais Hayden, my business name is Dog Grooming by Anais. Prior to joining Atlanta Dog Spa I worked at Klippers Pet Grooming in Columbus, GA. I worked under owner Dawn Omboy. Dawn is a National Certified Master Groomer/Creative Groomer also known as The Queen of Color. I started working at Klippers in 2003 when I was 15 years old. Dawn being an icon in the grooming industry became my mentor and grooming instructor. I worked after school, weekends and during the summer. While working there I learned a lot about Creative Grooming and was immediately taken by the beauty and art of the grooming style.
I have always had a love for art and animals, especially dogs ever since I was 2 years old. My favorite hobby growing up has always been drawing and I was strongly encouraged by my grandmother who would supply me with boxes of paper and supplies. I took an art class every year while in school and was always one of the top in my class. In 2003 while a freshmen at Spencer High School I was featured in 37th Edition of Who’s Who Among American High School Students for my artistic achievements. In 2007 I received a partial art scholarship to Andrew College. In 2009 I received my Dog Grooming Certification from Penn Foster College.
In January 2011 I received a certification from Nash Academy of Animal Arts for completing the Expressions & Profiles: Long Legged Terrier Online Course. In March 2011 I competed for the first time in the Atlanta Pet Fair with my Powderpuff Chinese Crested name Swinger. I won second place and $300 in the Open Division Creative Grooming Competition. I continued to work for Dawn Omboy until November 2011. I am currently working as an Independent Dog Groomer at the Atlanta Dog Spa in Atlanta, GA. I will always be thankful to have been trained by the best as I continue to pursue my career in dog grooming.
