U Can Do It
Dog Wash & Grooming
I was a hairdresser for 30+ years; I even owned my own salon for a while. When I retired I went to work in technology over in Beaverton for 7 years, until it got too smart for me and the drive too time consuming. I decided to come back to my own neighborhood and started U Can Do It Dog Wash to provide a needed service in our neighborhood as a self-serve Dog Wash. Soon people were stopping in to see if we did grooming as well. I was totally prepared to run a successful Dog Wash, but a bit naïve in thinking I could groom a dog myself, regardless I tried my best until I found a groomer. Let me tell you it is a whole lot harder to groom a moving live animal with hair all over its body that would rather play and have fun than it is cutting a live persons hair that sits nicely and cooperates.
Dee has many years of experience as a professional groomer, vet assistant, boarding kennel owner/operator, breeder/exhibitor of Champion Great Danes, years working with both Dog and Horse Rescues, especially retired racing greyhounds. Tender loving care of animals with emphasis on the seniors has been a lifetime commitment and passion.
It has been a challenging learning curve hiring the right groomers that would be a good fit. I made dozens of embarrassing mistakes and even wanted to quit once. After our customers, and me, going through several staff changes I decided this was not going to get me down, I would start from scratch and make it better than ever. So I hired a Pet Care Professional who made all the difference in the world for us. We added new policies and training. We took our time and did not hire a new groomer right away until recently. That person needed to be a good fit with our team and our customers. We now provide a high quality Grooming and self-serve Dog Wash in our neighborhood, and that makes me very happy.
