MARKUS & LAURA
We are an animal loving couple who landed in Virginia from Germany. We were raised with animals and volunteered in animal-related causes for many years. We learned the art of grooming in Germany and we settled in one of the most beautiful areas of Virginia to provide quality grooming and care. To us, animals are family, and we share our life with two dogs, a cat, and many fosters. Our shop is located in a natural environment, in the heart of the Occoquan forest, surrounded by nature and peace. Laura is also a positive reinforcement trainer, studied with acclaimed Peaceful Paws Dog Training school in the United States as well as the Turid Rugaas Nordic School of Dog Training based in Norway. She is a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants IAABC, and sitting for her CCBC-KA designation this fall (Certified Canine Behavior Consultant. In addition, she volunteers with 501c3 canine rescue organizations providing assistance with behavioral cases, fearful and reactive dogs. We look forward to meeting you and we welcome you to our shop!
