Meet our Owners!
Their dreams have finally come true!! Colleen, formally known as Groomed by Colleen, has teamed up with her husband and daughter to open Camp K9.
Colleen and Silesia are a mother/daughter duo that own and operate this stress and anxiety free facility.
Colleen has been grooming dogs for 33 years. She has had many small breed dogs growing up. Colleen and her husband, Jeff, have an 8 year old Yellow Lab named Sage. Colleen has always wanted a white Standard Poodle so she could use creative grooming to turn it into a zebra! Her favorite thing about Camp K9, besides spending time with her doggy friends, is being able to see the sunrise out the front windows!
Colleen is the Main Groomer at Camp K9.
Growing up with a dog-grooming mom, Silesia had no other option than to follow in her mom's foot steps. Lucky, Silesia has it in her blood to care for and love animals. She is a certified professional dog trainer with IACP.
Silesia has a Dalmatian puppy that she will be training to bird hunt. Her favorite thing about Camp K9 is meeting new clients and seeing how happy the dogs are when their parents come to pick them up at the end of the day!
Silesia is the Trainer at Camp K9.
Meet our Groomers!
Liz has been a groomer at Camp K9 for almost a year now! She grew up with a black lab/retriever mix and rescued 3 stray dogs and over 28 cats! Liz's favorite things to do during her free time is taking walks to the river with her 3 year old daughter, playing guitar and video games. Her favorite thing about working at Camp K9 is the look on the customer's faces when they see their dog after a groom and how excited the dog is when their owner comes to pick them up. "I get to see the love and bond between pet and owner. And that is something really special."
