Hello! My name is Laci I am the proud owner of Dog-a-holick.

I grew up in Idaho but first came to Maine to work in 1998. I spent a lot of time traveling before focusing on what I am passionate about: dogs. 

I worked at a Vet’s office in “the County” for 1 year before we were relocated to Western NY for my boyfriend’s job. While in NY I worked at the largest animal shelter in the greater Rochester area, as well as one of the largest K9 campuses in the Finger Lakes. While at those jobs I attended two different schools and became a certified dog groomer, and graduated with my business degree. 

Now that we’re back in Maine, I’m excited to realize my long-time goal of owning my own grooming salon. Dogaholick is the realization of a dream and I truly am a Dogaholick!

Hi, I’m Casey I always knew I wanted to work with animals even from a really young age. I liked learning about them and wanted to do something more; grooming was brought to my attention after I graduated high school.  After graduating from A+ Pet Grooming Academy, I now get the chance to continue to learn about grooming and get to work with dogs of all shapes and sizes, and I couldn’t be happier.

My name is Zoë and I’ve been grooming since 2010.  My love for animals doesn’t end at work and in my spare time I love spending time with my three dogs, two cats, two goats, fourteen hens, two roosters, one mouse, and, oh yeah, my husband!

Level 4 Stylist

Hi, my name is Kelsey. I grew up totally in love with animals and always pictured myself somehow working with them one day. After unhappily spending a few years doing taxes, I decided to make a change. A friend of mine suggested I try getting into grooming and I immediately got on board. I started the journey with a "Box Store" and was able to get a beginners education through them. After almost a year grooming with them, I knew that I wanted to take my education further and advance my skills. After meeting Laci, I knew that Dog-a-Holick would be the perfect place for me to do that. My journey to get here hasn’t been the most direct one but I am very happy to have finally found a way to work with dogs.

Level 2 Stylist

Hello, my name is Sam; and from cats, dogs to farm animals, and to your more uncommon house pets; such as a ferret, a parrot, and many other animals. They have always been a part of my life and family. I have always had a connection with my fur babies (as I like to call them) and have been passionate about taking care of them, the way they take care of me. I worked as a groomers assistant for a local mobile grooming company.  Where I alternated days between four different groomers in the summer of 2020. Picking up tips and tricks along the way from the talented girls there is how I was acquainted with the grooming world. I am very excited to continue learning, studying, and to be starting at a shop where being a Dog-a-holick is celebrated!
