How Do We Cater to Your Dog’s Skin Issues?

Every dog is different. Many have allergies, skin issues, or unique coat needs and it’s important to truly understand each pet before we begin a grooming service. In fact, we insist on discovering your dogs’ unique needs before we start.

All of our stylists are certified pet aestheticians though the Iv San Bernard Certified Pet Aesthetician Program. Using our expertise and our range of Iv San Bernard natural products, we look after your pet’s skin and coat health, no matter what their specific needs may be. Each of our salons is also equipped with an ozone bathing machine that aids in the healing process, assists arthritic pets, and also can provide a relaxing spa treatment using a warm bath environment with oxygen enriched water.

Our Valparaiso Salon's Pet Stylists

Heather Bogash

Pet Stylist

Heather has grown up with all kinds of animals during her life and even started volunteering at a riding stable from eight years old all the way into her mid-twenties. She has a Mastiff/Pitt mix (Odin), a Chi-weenie (Elvira), an 18-year-old cat (Cleo), and a Uromastyx lizard (Zelda).

With eleven years of grooming experience, Heather brings a sense of care and expertise that is hard to come by and it shows in her work. When enjoying life away from the grooming table, Heather likes going to opening mics, live music, and meditation.

Mary Briney

Pet Stylist

Mary brings international flare to the Smoochie Pooch of Valparaiso team. From Ireland, Mary has been in love with being around animals since she was a child. Due to grooming not being as big in Ireland, she is a newer stylist but not due to lack of passion or desire, “Wish I started grooming sooner as I (expletive) love it!”

Mary and her family currently have a black mouth cur (Sora) that they rescued. Outside of work, Mary likes to spend time going to the park, beach, and tries to be crafty.

Elaina Gerlach

Pet Stylist

Elaina has been with Smoochie Pooch of Valparaiso since March of 2019 but has been grooming for about a year and spent four years working in dog daycare and boarding facilities. From Valparaiso, her love for animals has spanned several states as she currently owns two mutts (Mowgli and Prana) that she rescued while living in Arizona.

When Elaina isn’t providing awesome grooms to your dogs she goes on adventures with her own dogs and watches Netflix. Her favorite part of working at Smoochie Pooch is helping dogs stay happy and healthy while overcoming challenges and always learning.
