Heather 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.


When 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.

In 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.
