A Word From Jacque Adams

I was 40 when I decided to go to Maser’s Grooming Academy.  At the time, I was still working a full time job at a pulp and paper factory in a sleepy little seaport town in Washington State and so I had to arrange my time to attend school on my days off.  It was a tough ride that made what should have been a 6 week course, a long and agonizing 9 month struggle.  I was however determined to follow my passion and sacrificed everything I could to get through that tough time and persevere.

I was raised with cats and dogs and have not lived a single day without the joy in my life that they bring, and I NEVER will!  When I was a child, my mother was obsessed with her Pomeranians……we always had 1-3 in the house during my childhood years.  A love that lives on through me with the 3 Pommies that own me today.  My parents, of course having been farm and ranch people all of their lives, taught us EARLY on to show animals the respect they truly deserve; that is OUR responsibility and duty as good kind people.

My heart, most especially, has always gone out to the elderly pet with whom you can see doesn’t feel well or has some type of disability.  I have always handled them with “kid gloves”, often arranging special “quiet time” for their grooming sessions.  I go the extra mile to not stress these poor creatures out during their sessions with me.  Sometimes for these special clients, we might leave a hair or 2 out of place as we use extra caution to listen to THEM TELL US when we are done:-)

I don’t believe in having a stressful grooming session with any pet and that is always more important at Gone to the Dogs than them being ready for the New Westminster Show.  Stress free, comfortable, quiet, clean and spoiled rotten…..that’s what Gone to the Dogs Pet Salon is and was always meant to be!
