I am a native San Diegan, I have been fortunate to live in this beautiful city my entire life.  I started working in the pet industry about 5 years ago as an assistant in cute dog bakery - so along with my grooming skills, your pup is sure to leave his appointment with a homemade and tasty treat!  My grooming journey started after that working as a bather for a local grooming shop, here I honed in my skills at perfecting the dog bath to maximize cleanliness and develop in to a quick and efficient bather.  I then spent a few years working as an assistant groomer / groomer for a groomer where I learned on the job all the techniques and skills necessary to work as a proficient pet stylist.  

Along with my technical skills, I also have a very great love of dogs and animals in general.  Im  gentle, kind, and compassionate to all dogs in my van as I know its not exactly their favorite thing in the world to get groomed.  I like to consider myself to be a patient groomer and I always keep your pets best interest in mind.    Woof!

Hi! I'm Shawna, the owner and           groomer of Local Dog!
