Hi! I’m Karissa and it’s no secret that working with animals is what makes my world go round. I always wanted to work with animals but never knew which road I wanted to take in the industry. The conversation that made the wheels start turning was with my Dad. He mentioned seeing a mobile grooming van and thought it was a career I would love. That idea really resonated with me, it felt right, and was followed by my search for dog grooming schools that led me to Golden Paws Pet Styling Academy in Clifton Park.
From my experience I recognize the importance of working in a calm state of mind, and the use of positive energy while grooming. The one on one bonding experience with the dogs, and the ability to maintain a stress free environment is what our clients value most. I’ve heard countless times, “My dog has never been so relaxed leaving the groomer! How do you do it?” Just like anything else, what you put into it, is what you get out of it. I put in the time, I stay patient, and I keep positive energy. Then, our clients’ dogs leave relaxed with smiles on their faces.
Stress is something dogs experience from time to time, while grooming, but also when their parents are out of town. We recognize this and that’s why pet sitting is in high demand. Your fur-babies get to sleep in their own bed, stay in their own home, and gaze out the window from their couch to watch the birds. While your out of town it’s important that we make your pet feel like they’re on vacation too!
I see pets as living, breathing stuffed animals that add so much to our quality of life. They have needs and those needs are best met in a calm and comfortable environment. Our focus on wellness helps us all lead a long, happy fulfilled life. The saying, “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”, has never been more true. Nothing can beat the peace and happiness of being in the moment with dogs every day.
