Hi there! My name is Sarah Kuhns. I am the owner /manager of the Bella Rose Grooming Studio located in Winchester, Va.
A little about me, I studied in graphic design at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. During that time, I adopted my sweet papillon Bella Rose from Berkeley county animal shelter. Due to her multiple skin and hair issues and trying to resolve them is what led me into dog grooming. I enjoyed grooming her so much I decided to enroll myself into a dog grooming certification program where I became a certified groomer.
During the time I was completing my certification program I also apprenticed under a senior groomer which greatly enhanced my experience level. Opening my own grooming shop has always been my end goal. I focus on the health and well being of every pet that I come into contact with. I focus on quality grooming and providing a low stress environment for the dogs.
I am continually educating myself on latest techniques and the new developments in the industry by attending trade shows, seminars, and certification programs. I am pet CPR certified, have taken grooming workshops from master groomers such as Jay Scruggs and Jodi Murphy who are multiple gold medal winners and judges. In addition, I have completed the first portion of my skin anesthetician course by IV san Bernard, (Dr. Cliff Favor) located in Cave Creek, AZ. “ Pampering your pooch with style”, is my goal with every groom.
In an effort to give back to the community I volunteer my time grooming dogs at Esther Boyd Animal Shelter to help them find they’re forever homes.
I am a proud member of the National Dog Grooming Association of America (NDGAA). You can find me on their website.
