Faith Larson – Groomer

We welcome Faith Larson as our newest Groomer.  Originally from West Bend, Faith joins us with almost 5 years’ experience as a professional groomer.  Faith has the skills, creativity and ability to groom all breeds, but she is a little bit partial to grooming Doodle breeds because no two are exactly alike.

When not caring for dogs at work, Faith is kept busy with her own 4 cats and two dogs.  The newest addition is baby Lilo, a Boston terrier.  Faith describes her transition from her last job to The Feed Bag as, “It’s warming.  It’s like going from Corporate to Family.  I love it.”
