Logan Taylor, Groomer

Greetings to all!  My name is  Logan Taylor and I’ve been working in the pet industry for 5 years. Growing up with dogs and cats I learned early my love and admiration for animals.  I received my grooming certification from Petco Groom School in 2013 and I’ve had a passion for grooming since then. I love my craft and I’m devoted to creating great grooms for both the  pet and pet parent. I own two dogs, a ten year old American Eskimo Mix & twelve year old toy poodle both rescues. I’m fond of grooming all breeds but big dogs such as Standard Poodles & Golden Doodles are my favorite.
