Opened in April of 1996. Mother Katherine Williams and her daughters Melissa and Amie. Yuma location opened in 2011 by Melissa and Eddie Hall. We have raised and shown champion Scottish terriers, Miniature schnauzers, and standard poodles. We grew up with showing dogs, horses, and running obedience trials. Our mother was constantly around animals. In turn she showed us many tips and secrets to grooming. After finding it difficult to find a quality groomer for our family schnauzer, we saw a need and in 1996 attended grooming school in Scottsdale, AZ.
We believe in on-going education and attend many professional grooming rally’s , workshops, and expos each year. Melissa is also a grooming educator and teaches on cat grooming related topics.
Melissa noticed a significant need for safe, quality, professional cat grooming and started grooming cats in 2009. Finding it hard to gain adequate knowledge in the dog grooming world, decided to attend the National Cat groomers Institute of America- NCGIA in South Carolina. Having to pass written and practical exams over a 2 week course, Melissa became Yuma’s first certified feline master groomer-CFMG.
We attend many dog and cat shows keeping up with our industry trends. We feel that grooming has a huge impact on the lives of the pets and owners we see, and keeping pets clean and comfortable and providing solutions to shedding, scratching, and so much more, in a clean, comfortable, professional, environment.
Melissa Hall CFMG is nationally recognized by Wahl Animal USA as a Brand Ambassador for 2019 for the company. She teaches professional groomers from around the world in her salon here in Yuma Arizona the magic of feline grooming. See the difference a Touch of Class can make!
