About Christie (Master Groomer)

Christie Henriksen, NCMG, Owner

I am a national certified Master Groomer, terrier, sporting and non-sporting groomer. I love working with dogs and making them feel safe, loved, and feeling great!! It all started when I got my Samoyed puppy in 1999. I got into the dog show world and learn a lot about bathing, brushing and making the dog ring ready. I am very picky on how the dogs I groom look. I love creating beautiful grooms.

In 2003 I started to work with a groomer of 14 yrs.  I learned my basics in all breed grooming. Since then I've been continuing my education with seminars, earning my Nation Master Groomer Certification, grooming competitions nation wide and hosting grooming seminars at the salon.

I have won numerous 1st placements, group placements, best all around groomer and a Best in Show at grooming competitions. For the past 5 years I've been ranked in the top 20 in the country. My goal is to make Groom Team USA.

I specialize is hand scissoring,hand stripping, show grooming on West Highland White Terriers and Bichons.

I have handled, championed, and grand championed Bichons, Westies, and Samoyeds for the past 19 years. I offer classes and private lessons on hand stripping, Bichons and Westie show trims.

Private lessons can be up to 3 people.

When you get your dog groomed he or she will get the works. Shampoo, conditioner, ear plucking/cleaning, anal glands, nail trimming/filling, and haircut. Don't need a haircut? Bath and brush includes all of the above minus the haircut.

Prices varies on how long the groom takes $65 per hour.
Small dog haircuts start at $65.
