Love My Dawg Resort and Spa is under the new ownership of Chrissy and business partner Maria. Chrissy has been with the business long enough to know the ins and outs of handling pets and what works. At our specialized grooming facility, we provide a happy, safe, and fun environment with a full range of spa services to pamper your pet, just like a beauty salon.

Jonathan - Bather

Jonathan has been Chrissy's Assistant for two years now. As our Head Bather with over six years of experience, Jonathan treats each dog as they are his own. He comes to work each day not for the money, but because he absolutely loves the dogs, and they love him!

In his spare time, Jonathan likes to hangout with his rambunctious two year old Golden Doodle, Miley and volunteer at his local animal shelter if time allows.
