Lena's Story


Hello, my name is Lena and I am a certified pet groomer. I have been grooming pets for 13 years now and I enjoy every minute of it.

Since I was a little girl, I have always loved animals and felt a special bond with them. I often dreamed of ways that I could spend more time with them and help to ensure that they have a wonderful life. I knew that I could never be a Vet because it breaks my heart to hear of the awful things that some pets are subjected to and I could not handle seeing that everyday, knowing that I could not save everyone of them.

Luckily, I found as I got older that there was another way that I can help pets without having to deal with the loss. I found that by becoming a groomer, I could care for pets and make sure that they are physically maintained and healthy. I knew that grooming was a very important part of keeping pets healthy, and I fell in love with the idea that I could have a career where I could make their lives healthier and better.

The more I learned about grooming the more I learned of how perfect this career was for me. Not only do I get to aid in keeping pets healthy, but I found that I form a special bond with every pet I groom. The trust and love that pets have to share with me to allow me to do a thorough groom is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

Unfortunately, there are sad parts to grooming as well though. I have seen many neglected and abused pets that are brought to me to clean up. They are matted to the skin, with infections, sores, and sometimes worse. I have seen pets so matted that they can not even walk. However, I get to spend precious time with these pets and form that special bond with them. I get to show them that someone loves them and that they will be ok. I have been brought to tears by some of the pets that have been brought in to me, but after spending time with them and grooming them, I can not even describe how amazing it feels to see them afterwards. They seem so much more full of life, and so happy, and I know that they will be taken to a good home and cared for from then on. To make that kind of difference in a pet's life is incredible.

Having said that, it is obvious why I love grooming so much. That is why I decided to take the next step and create grooming DVDs and guides to allow others to learn how to groom. Whether someone wants to learn to groom on their own to save money or because they just can not afford to go to the groomer as often as they need to, or because they want to be able to experience that special bond with their own pet, I want to help.

I want to make sure that any pet owner that wants to groom has the proper knowledge on how to groom safely and efficiently. I want to empower pet owners so that they can groom with confidence and ease. I want to make sure that all pet owners have the ability to share a special bond with their pet, whether it is to groom every time, or just to do touch ups between grooms.

I also want to make sure that when a pet owner decides to groom on their own, that they will have the proper equipment to complete the groom. I want to ensure that a pet owner is not spending unnecessary amounts of money on random equipment that they will never use. I want to teach them which equipment is the safest and best to use and which equipment is right for them and their pet.

I truly love grooming pets and I hope that I can inspire others to try grooming as well. It is honestly a rewarding experience each and every time I groom.
