Our Approach

Our Approach

Our pets are family these days, The Wizard of Paws staff understands that and wants each pet to enjoy their spa day with individualized care. Our naturally derived products make our spa packages excellent for your pets overall health and well being. Our spa care is more than a few suds and water, it's a relaxing experience!

Our Story

 

Grooming goes beyond just making your pet pretty, it's part of maintaining the health and well-being of your pet. By maintaining a regular grooming schedule we are able to prevent or find skin and coat issues before they become a serious problem. Many times unhealthy skin and coat are signs of a serious underlying health issue, that if caught early can be treated easily by your veterinarian.

With that in mind The Wizard of Paws staff works with you to build a loving relationship with your pet to become part of their health care team. We are constantly learning and attending trade seminars and classes to stay ahead of the current techniques, styles and health information to offer the best that our pet profession has to offer.

Meet the Team

Sheila

Sheila Cole

Owner and Senior Pet stylist

Sheila Cole is a 2008 graduate of the PetsMart grooming academy and a certified cat groomer. She is also a member of the International Pet Groomers Association (IPG) and pet CPR certified. While she loves all dogs and cats, big fluffy ones hold a special place in her heart.

Sheila's passion for animals started at an early age caring for all the family pets and often bringing home "foundlings." She started and ran her own club as a kid to raise money for the local animal shelter by selling homemade dog treats and collars. That evolved into working at an Animal Emergency Vet hospital and volunteering at the local wildlife rehabilitation center. Her goal had always been to be a veterinarian, but somewhere along that path she stumbled into the pet stylist profession and hasn't looked back since.

Will Cole

Owner & Operations Manager

The man behind the curtain. Morale officer and helps keep the business running smoothly.

Will and Sheila Cole married in 2007 while he was in the US Navy and she was just finishing up high school. He has been her number one supporter in her developing career as a Pet stylist, encouraging her when others would say "it's not a real job." With a great mind for solving technical problems Will enjoys his primary job at Optimum Energy as a project engineer and uses that mind to help improve the environment of the salon.
