At My Two Dogs Grooming , we believe that every dog should be groomed with respect and a gentle hand. In 2002, we found out first hand how traumatizing and hard grooming can be for some dogs when we rescued our dog Sasha. But, with patience, understanding, training techniques and a team effort we figured it out. And just a year later we opened our business knowing we could do the same for other dogs too!
My Two Dogs Training:
In 2001 Annie adopted our dog Lucy as a puppy with the intention of her becoming a therapy dog. Annie instantly fell in love with the training aspect and knew this would be a great way to integrate her passion for dogs and her BA in Psychology. Soon after becoming a certified therapy team with Lucy, Annie went on to also become a certified dog trainer in 2006. Annie believes that training should be a fun and bonding experience for both the owner and the dog.
CURRENT BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Priscilla Queen of the Groom Shop came into our lives
September 2015. We received a call from a friend of ours over at the Brooklyn City Shelter telling us she had a dog that we might be interested in adopting. She sent us a photo and Gary melted.
We met her the next day and of course she came home with us! The only thing anyone knew about her was that she was a 7 month old owner surrender. She is quite the character! She is loud, quirky but so lovable. She has some issues that she is working on but she is the right fit to take on Board of Director duties!
What can we say about Phoebe! Her story is actually very cute. We took Priscilla to her first dog event – a fundraiser for Sugar Mutts Rescue and Phoebe (at that time she was known as Flop) had just arrived from the south. They found each other and started playing. Hmm, we began to think that maybe we found the second of the “My Two Dogs”.
Priscilla went off to daycare at Sugar Mutts, they got along nicely, so we brought Phoebe (Flop) home for a trial run. That was October 2015. We made it official and changed her name to Phoebe Flop and that crazy hound/lab mix has kept us on our toes ever since!
ORIGINAL BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Was born in 2001, not sure what month, we think March but we know she was only 8 weeks old. We’re pretty sure she had a nice life; lots of training classes and she even became a certified therapy dog!
She was our original official greeter, and everyone who knew her, adored her. She will always be our best example of what good training and socializing can do!
Sadly, Lucy left us in 2015 at the age of 14. She left us with great memories and a wealth of stories! She will always be with us and be a part of My Two Dogs.
We picked her out of a shelter in 2002. She was a bit of a mess; afraid of men, loud noises, being touched and absolutely NO social skills. You could say she was a good example of training & patience, and she loved to test that!
She worked through most of her problems but she still loved to bark at anyone and everything! She used to fly her freak flag and let us dye her tail and ears hot pink and ultraviolet.
She also left us in 2015 at the age of 14 but left us with memories and laughs to last a lifetime. She too will always be with us and forever be a part of My Two Dogs.
