Professional Pet Nail Specailist
Hello there, I'm Amanda.
After growing up being an avid animal lover but not following my dream of going to school to be a Veterinarian, I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. I was easily discouraged living near Washington DC by my lack of experience that I began working with pets as a "part time job."
In 2008 I started my own dog walking/pet sitting business. Also, I started fostering and rehabilitating dogs to find their forever homes. Shortly into 2012 I found out I would be moving to PA and lose everything.
Moving to PA I started at a pet store part time. I began as a cashier and moved into being a dog trainer. I slowly moved up and went through training to become a groomer. I've since hopped around finding my "home." Then, in 2018 came my next business - making house calls.
Today, Pawdicures At Home brings my passion for making pets look good but also keeping stress levels to an absolute minimum. I pride myself on my calm disposition and making the process as fun and easy as possible.
My knowledge in training, handling, body language, grooming and of course, owning - I feel I have the right tools for any kind of pet. My passion is to help pets through their anxieties by taking as much stress off.
I am a Fear Free Certified Groomer!
This certification leads to yearly ongoing training so I can help my clients the best that I can. I want to help over come fear, anxiety and stress (FAS). I'm passionate about finding a better solution for those pets who have negative feelings toward grooming and anything related. I have years of training in positive reinforcement but this course has shown me how to adapt my knowledge to my grooming career.
