Lauren Griffith - Smoochie Pooch Valparaiso Pet Stylist

Lauren Griffith

Pet Stylist

Lauren started at Smoochie Pooch as a bather in October 2021 and graduated our grooming training program in May of 2022. She always worked in a vet’s office as a kennel worker and veterinary assistant but decided she wanted to be a groomer shortly after she started working as a bather. It quickly became something she fell in love with. When she is not at work, her hobbies include fishing, hiking with her dogs and rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife. Going to the beach is also a blast! She has 2 dogs, Cody and Toby. Cody is a mixed breed she found as a stray on the railroad and Toby is a potcake (island dog from Turks and Caicos). Her favorite part of working at Smoochie Pooch is laughing with her coworkers and building relationships with her dog clients and human clients. Her goal is to turn every mess into a masterpiece and make the dogs and clients happy!
