About Us

 



Hi, I'm Sheri, the Award - Winning Owner/Operator of Sheri's Pampered Pets, LLC. I attended the North Jersey School of Dog Grooming in Madison NJ in 1989. I was a Criminal Justice major at the time but my heart just wasn't in it. I was only 19 years old, so my mother suggested that I go to grooming school. Knowing of the love I have for animals, she knew I would excel working with them.

I decided I would try it and within 3 months I graduated. Since that time, I have worked for many vets as a Veterinary Assistant as well as working along side of several groomers. I've learned something new from all of them.

My mother was a poodle lover, so I grew up with poodles. I used to groom her standard poodle every six weeks or so and in so doing, I developed a love for poodles myself and ended up buying one of my own. He's an Apricot Standard whose name is Baron.

I bought Baron in 2005 and he became my guinea pig. Although I thought I would never be good enough, it was always a dream of mine to participate in grooming competitions. I finally decided to give it a try and in September, 2007 I competed for the first time at Groom Expo in Hershey, PA. I had the opportunity to meet with many of the best groomers in the country. This exposure also helped to sharpen my skills. I also competed with Baron at the INTERGROOM Show in Somerset, NJ in April, 2008, once again networking with some of the best groomers in the country.

About 4 years ago, I had gotten a grooming job working under a Show Groomer, Lesley Nagel. That was a true learning experience for me and she helped to hone my skills.

I also always wanted to own my own business. Who doesn't? I've finally accomplished that. I had been looking into Mobile Salons for years. I took the plunge in 2008, driving out to Indiana and purchasing my state of the art Mobile Grooming Salon. I have been grooming since 1989 and my business is my new baby, having stared it February 16, 2008. So now I can share my skills with my customers. I am now doing what I truly love without the stress of working for someone else.

I have a short story for anyone who has never used mobile grooming before. I have a client whom I used to groom at the shop where I used to work. He always had to be tranquilized to get the job done because of the high stress environment. Since I started grooming him in the van, on his own property, with no other animals around, he no longer needs to be tranquilized. He is so much more relaxed. There's no confusion: it's a nice, relaxing and enjoyable experience for the pet and myself.

I am Certified in pet CPR & First Aid.
