Wag the Dogs: Pet grooming at your home

So the dog needs a bath and clipping, but your schedule won�t allow you to take a trip to the groomer. There�s a simple, affordable solution: call Linda King.

�I�ll come to you,� said King, owner of Wag the Dogs mobile pet grooming. �At your home, at your convenience. I�ll pull right up in your driveway.�

King now offers her mobile grooming service in the Blaine-Birch Bay area. �I like working one-on-one and meeting people,� she said, when asked why she provides mobile service. �I don�t like keeping dogs in cages all day.�

Instead of using a cage for the dog, King has a van in which she can wash, cut and groom dogs individually. �It�s a van that�s totally self-contained,� she said.

Since the service is mobile, it�s not only easier for the dog owner, but for the dogs themselves. Although the dogs are in a van, they are still near their home and there�s no worry about reactions to other dogs.

King, who has a broad background in animal care - including studies in grooming, zoology and animal nutrition - is currently looking for office space in the Blaine-Birch Bay area, as she plans on having both a mobile service and a shop. She�s also planning on holding free nail clipping clinics with Dr. Jack Schuman of the Cat and Dog Clinic in Blaine.

For more information, call Linda King at 303-2341.
