My name is Ashley Ambrose and I have been dedicated and involved in the pet care field for over 10 years. I am proud to offer house call grooming, as well as in a veterinary practice. I am insured and trained in animal behavior as well!
It began with my love for animals and animal behavior at a young age. I began dog walking and overnight stays for pet care purposes at a young age. It was never an issue for me to perform grooming basics at home such as bathing, cleaning ears or trimming nails.
I began working as a bather for a company the end of 2015. By may 2016, I had finished my apprenticeship for becoming a dog groomer and began dog grooming without a mentor. I groomed under a corporate company for 2 years. I then went to work for a 24 hour emergency clinic and was there as a doctor's assistant for two years. I have now moved on to a general practice located in Glastonbury as a doctor's assistant and as their groomer as well!
My favorite types of grooms are blow outs on long coated dogs, outline trims, matted dogs and working with dogs that are nervous/on the fearful side. I also have an interest in the creative side of grooming; from Mohawks to mustaches, coloring in the tails or painting the nails, I love to play around with different looks. At the end of the day, my favorite thing about grooming is not only the fun of being able to give them a totally different look, but the relationship that you create with them. I love watching that relationship grow and over time see pets begin to trust me.
