Schuller - Owner/Head Groomer
I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Heather Schuller. I have been an animal lover all my life. I
graduated from National American University as a veterinary technician.
I went back to my home town in east river to do my internship at a
veterinary clinic, where I started grooming in slow times at the clinic.
I was always researching breeds and was always observing how dogs
looked. I picked up a part time job at Petco as a sales associate but
helped out in the grooming salon, so I got more hands on training.
my internship was complete I couldn’t find a job at a veterinary clinic
in Rapid City but found a grooming salon looking for a groomer, hence,
that started my professional life at Wags to Whiskers Pet Grooming. I
started my career as a pet stylist in May 1999 and I purchased the
grooming salon in December 2008 so I have been grooming for 16 years.
those years I have attended many grooming conventions to keep up to date
on things going on in the grooming industry. In my “spare” time I show
dogs, Weimaraners, Portuguese Water Dog, and Shih Tzus. I show in
conformation, obedience and once in awhile in agility. I am also
involved in local dog clubs and I do dog training with a local training
center. I also like to go camping and crocheting just to name a few
things I do other than “doggie” stuff.
My “family” consists of my wonderful and supportive husband, 7 dogs (2
Weimaraners, Springer Spaniel, German Shepherd, Portuguese Water Dog, &
2 Shih Tzus) and 2 cats. I like to have that personal connection with my
clients, they and their pet/s are very special to myself and my staff.
