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 started to get 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, grooming competitions 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 4 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 18 years. I offer classes and private lessons on hand stripping, Bichons and Westie show trims.
Private lessons can be up to 3 people.
Half day 4hr-$350
Whole day 8hr- $600
My clientele is full at this point but my other 2 Master Groomers would love to meet your pup.
I'm located at Uptown Pups 5501 S. Broadway, #110. Littleton, CO 80121
I began my grooming career bathing for a groomer of 16 years in 2003.
In 2004 I stepped into the position of a full time dog groomer with a local
veterinarian clinic. I then went on to receive my certification with Classy
Pup Dog Grooming School in 2007.
My passion has propelled me to achieve my certification in the Terrier
Group with National Dog Groomers Association of America in 2013. I will
continue on to achieve certifications in Sporting, Non Sporting, and
finally, Master Groomer.
Continuing education both locally and nationally has allowed me to bring
back many talents to the salon.
I strive to be the best at what I do. I love making sure every pet leaves
my salon feeling loved and looking his or her best. It's my pleasure to
provide you with a beautiful groom, whether that's a breed standard trim,
hand strip, or fun personality trim.

Hours: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday-Friday and the 1st Saturday of each month. I groom one dog at a time. Most small dogs are about an hour, medium 1-1 1/2 hours, large dogs 1 1/2- 2+ hours.
When you get your dog groomed by me 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.
My prices varies on how long the groom takes. I charge $65 an hour.
