I love my job. I have been grooming for five years now and have loved every challenging minute of it. I started out as a cashier observing from the window looking into the salon. I always felt a drive to be in the pet styling world. I love to groom all breeds of dogs. Recently a customer has deemed me the "Westie Whisperer". Bring me your elderly, tired, matted, dirty doggos and I guarantee I will make them look great! I am very passionate about what I do and take my time with all of my fur clients. I strive to make every dog feel special and loved. I love music, art and all living creatures. Come see me at our Newport News location!

Professional Dog Grooming Services

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts offers an array of dog grooming and bathing services at all of our locations in Virginia Beach, Newport News and our newest location in Moyock, NC. We love working with dogs of all sizes and breeds.  What sets Care-A-Lot Grooming Salons apart from other salons?  It’s simple, we make sure all our furry friends go home looking and feeling their best.  We are able to accommodate all types of grooming styles including breed cuts, puppy cuts and even Asian Fusion Styling.

Whether you schedule your dog for a bath or groom they will receive 15 minutes of brushing, a nail trim and an ear cleaning.  These services are included in the base price of all our baths and grooms. Upon request, we also offer other personal grooming services.

Our grooming staff goes above and beyond to ensure our guests are taken care of like they’re one of their own. We maintain open and honest communication between our staff and our guest’s owners.  We believe keeping owners informed about their dog’s behavior during the grooming process is essential to the dog’s well being.  Not all dogs do well during the grooming process; however as a team we will discuss any issues which may arise.

Care-A-Lot Pet Resorts uses and recommends Bio-Groom’s Groom n’ Fresh Shampoo which eliminates pet odor and keeps pets smelling fresh and clean.  It also leaves the coat lustrous and moisturized and is safe for both puppies and adult dogs.  Want us to use your specialty shampoo? No problem, just bring it with you to your appointment.

Be sure to check out our full-service menu. We have many great services to offer. Here are our two most popular requests:

Teeth Brushing

We use special pet toothpaste that freshens your dog’s breath, reduces tartar and helps prevent periodontal disease.  It’s important to maintain your dog’s dental needs because, just like people, dental issues can occur.  Start your dog’s brushing needs as early in life as possible so that as they age their teeth stay healthy and in good condition.

Nail ‘Dremeling’ (also known as nail grinding)

With each bath and groom, we will trim your dog’s nails. Sometimes they are still rough after trimming though. Nail ‘Dremeling’ will smooth and round out the nail. So, if your fur baby likes to love and play on you, avoid scratches by choosing this option at your next visit.
