Darcy, Owner
Well let’s see it all actually started with my youth. I grew up showing and breeding Bearded Collies with my mom. She would take me from dog show to dog show and have me handle her dogs for her often. I also competed in Junior handling. We always had at least 5 adult dogs and a few litter of pups running around amongst the other various breeds of animals. It definitely was never boring. When I was 14 my mother bought a grooming business of her own and put me to work. That was over 25 years ago. Dogs have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I got away from grooming for a few years to start a family, then started working for a vet in the small town were I was living.  I was able to wear many hats at the vet’s office and I learned a lot about animal behavior and took a few classes at Davis too.  I bought my business 8 years ago and expanded to the space next door several years ago. It has been a long hard road and I still have some things to finish in the shop but I'm not going anywhere. This is what I was meant to do. I LOVE MY JOB!! Dogs are some of the best people I know.


Jackie has been with The Top Dog for a little over eight years now. She is my right hand and it's horrible when she is gone. Jackie’s job is to make sure that your pets get nice and clean from the tip of their nose to the tip of their tails. She has two Dachshunds of her own Rosie and Blossom. They like to think that they are in charge when they come and hang out for the day in the shop.


My name is Jazzi. I've been working for Top Dog for 5 years now. I am one of the main groomers, Darcy trained me and taught me everything she knows. I love grooming and meeting all the different personalities of the dogs.

Hi, I'm Brandi. I work in the back and have been with Top Dog for 3 1/2 years. I love my job and my crew. I put my heart into my work and am a team player.
