Pampered Pets provides expert grooming with love


Last updated 6/28/2007 at Noon

When Jacqueline Pierson had the opportunity to leave the stresses of corporate America behind and purchase Pampered Pets nearly a year ago, the decision was easy.

“I wanted my own business,” Pierson said. “I love animals and they are my life. It was pretty easy to figure out what I wanted to do.”

Surprisingly, Pierson’s love for animals did not flourish until her early twenties. Her brother was quite ill with asthma and the family was unable to have pets around the home. However, when Pierson brought home her first dog, an English bulldog, an immediate passion for dogs surfaced.

“I just love that dogs are so intuitive,” Pierson said. “They don’t judge you, and they are always happy to see you.” She also mentioned how dogs have an innate quality to make a person feel special.

“Pampered Pets is not just a groomer, we are a doggie day spa,” said Pierson. The business uses the finest products on animals and provides a relaxing mini-massage. Nestled in the front portion of the establishment is a pet boutique, where animal owners can purchase items to further spoil their favorite pet.

“We ‘pamper’ pets to the full extent of the word,” Pierson noted.

In addition to the mini-massage and expertise grooming, Pampered Pets also provides nail clipping, expresses anal glands, pulls inner ear hair out of specific breeds and trims hair around private areas for sanitation. Their detailed attention to a pet also supplies them with the opportunity to spot any potential trouble areas, such as hot spots, fox tails and/or lumps. These types of observations are beneficial to the animal, their owners and veterinarians.

This type of professional inspection and care truly separates a visit to a professional groomer from bathing an animal at home. For those who do wash their dogs at home, Pierson shares her words of puppy wisdom.

“People need to be careful to get all that soap out when washing their dog at home; otherwise, the animal could wind up with hot spots,” said Pierson. For long-haired dogs, Pierson strongly suggests blow drying and brushing the coat. If this is ignored, the result could be a matted mess. These types of “matted messes” have shown up at Pampered Pets, sometimes resulting in shaving the problem area(s).

“We have no other choice but to shave the dog and we just hate to do that,” she said.

Pierson mentioned that a dog should be brushed at least two times per week and should be groomed at least every six weeks.

“This is really to help your animal have a better experience,” explained Pierson. When an animal is not properly brushed and goes to the groomers with a matted coat, it can be an uncomfortable experience. In order to prevent a negative visit to the groomers, Pierson suggests incorporating some type of grooming regimen.

Pierson’s love and respect for animals has trickled onto her business philosophy. She has found herself educating animal owners while providing the best grooming and care for her four-legged clients.

“I love spending time with animals and I feel that I have the best job in the world,” she said, smiling.

Pampered Pets is located at 1672 South Mission Road, Suite E, Fallbrook. Call (760) 723-2332 for more information or to make an appointment.
