I am the owner and one of the groomers at Dirty Dog Spa. I have been grooming since 2006 and previously owned a pet grooming salon in Watertown, SD also called Dirty Dog Spa. I love grooming all breeds, I especially love the challenge of a dog that is new to grooming, I believe dogs love and appreciate our kindness. I love my job and end everyday feeling accomplished. When I am not grooming I love to spend time with my family, my husband and I have one son. I have two Shih Tzu's named Hattie and Dorothy and a Persian cat named Bob.

I'm Ashley, I've been grooming for 10 years and I absolutely love my job. I have a busy life at home with my husband Chris and our 3 kids Azlie(4) Brynlie(2) and Otto(10m). We also have quite a crew of fur kids as well with our 4 dogs, a Saint Bernard, 2 cocker spaniels and a yorkie. I love being able to care and give attention to your pets at work and then be able to go home and teach my children about proper animal care. Grooming has always been a passion of mine and I strive to become better at it with seminars and expos. Dirty Dog Spa has been a blessing to myself and my family for allowing me to do what I love every single day. My favorite breeds to groom are Yorkies, Cocker Spaniels and St Bernard's. I am excited to meet you and your pets and give them the care they deserve when they have their spa day.

Hi, my name is Emily! I’m a sophomore at Sioux Falls Christian. I have a younger brother Jacob who will be an 8th grader. I am 15 years old and have been working at the Dirty Dog Spa for little over a year. My favorite dog to bath would have to be the Rottweiler just because I’ve got one at home and we see them so rarely. I am the proud pet parent of two boys—my barn cat Comet who is two and my four year old Rottie Diesel.

Hi, my name is Amanda, I've been grooming since 2016. I have always been passionate about animals, especially dogs; and I knew I wanted to work with them. I became interested in grooming when I got my cavalier, Winston, who needed regular grooming. I also have a chocolate lab named Ivy. Although I enjoy grooming a variety of breeds some of my favorites are Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Shih Tzu mixes, and Golden retrievers.

Hello, I have been working at Dirty Dog Spa since February of 2018. I have loved animals  since I was a child and was trained and worked as a veterinary technician in Arizona but was unable to continue in the profession when we moved back to Sioux Falls. When I'm not answering phones and petting dogs at Dirty Dog Spa I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and three human children and our menagerie of furry and feathered kids. Including a 7 year old standard poodle mix (doodle), two cats, a house rabbit, and six chickens.
