A Little About Myself
Michelle Wolff, Owner
Fluff Dog Grooming was founded by Michelle Wolff in 2014. Michelle has been working with animals professionally for over 17 years. Her professional animal experience includes working as a pet groomer, bather, veterinary assistant, and pet sitter. She has also worked as an assistant dog trainer and supervised the Small Dog Play Group for Braveheart Dog Training. Additionally, Michelle was a licensed massage therapist and has taught classes on canine massage.
Michelle has always been active in pet rescue. Michelle's own dog family consists of Dennis and Jellyfish, her pugs; and Coney, a Chinese Crested she adopted as a senior. She also owns a cheeky rescue cat named Possum.
Michelle has a gentle, careful touch with animals. While she enjoys working with all dogs, she has a soft spot for senior dogs and dogs that are shy, fearful, or sensitive. Her goal is to build a relationship with her client dogs so that they feel safe and comfortable with her. She is committed to grooming, handling, and managing your dog with compassion and care. Michelle uses positive reinforcement methods to help dogs that are fearful or stressed with grooming.
Michelle is a member of the Pet Professional Guild (PPG), which is the Association for Force Free Pet Professionals.
