The Dog House Spa
Big and small, we love them all!

About us

The most important element in determining the quality of pet grooming is the experience and artistry of the groomer. Our groomer has ample experience in professional grooming, as well as handling and medical experience. Groomers tend to specialize in a breed or size, but at The Dog House Spa, we groom all breeds of dogs with superior ability.

Ashley and her aunt Robin are co-owners of The Dog House Spa and love working together, almost as much as they love working with animals.

Ashley - Co-owner/ Head Groomer 

Ashley brings 15 years of animal knowledge to the business. She graduated in 2005 at Sheridan College from the Animal care program where she got to learn everything from basic grooming, wildlife and zoology as well as basic animal medicine. After college she started work at African Lion Safari where she worked in the Elephant barn. Here she had the opportunity to work with the safari's elephant trainers as well as other animals including camels, reindeer and miniature horses. She then started her career as a Vet assistant in a small animal clinic where she has learned many basic and more advanced skills in animal medicine and handling. She moved onto an Emergency animal hospital where she had the opportunity to work in both the ER as well as Neurology/MRI departments. In 2009 she wanted more "hands on" time with the dogs and decided to try out the skills of being a groomer. She began training in a well established grooming salon, under a Certified Master groomer with over 25 years of experience. She and her aunt purchased The Dog House Spa in April of 2012 and have enjoyed caring for and grooming mans (and womans) best friends ever since.

Robin - Co-owner

Robin brings 36 years of customer service experience to the team . Throughout her life, she has had a passion for animals (especially dogs) and is happy to be in a field where she can work with them every day. As the spa has grown, so has Robin's knowledge and training, with  new experiences everyday, she hasn't stopped learning and making new friends with clients. As a member of the team she prepares each dog for their full groom with bathing, drying and brush outs as well as managing the shop. You can find her out front greeting customers or in the back playing with the dogs!
