About Tom!

Tom was a Mobile Groomer who used to groom Australian Shepherds for show for many years. He worked with the late Charlene Benjamin and the Fo' Paws grooming staff and professionally freelanced dog grooming for a while. He is a UC Davis student planning on becoming a veterinarian and worked to pay his way through school by grooming dogs.

Tom would drive out to your house to groom your dog; he had all portable grooming equipment. He didn't have a grooming trailer, so he would do the grooming in the comfort of your own home. Tom was trained in all types of grooming including custom cuts and trims which ensured that your doggie looked exactly how you wanted them to!

2010-11-14 00:06:37   Awesome groomer! Dropped my yorkie puppy at petco groomer who couldnt give my puppy a cut blaming him so difficult, I picked up the phone and call Tom and he did a great job on my puppy. Definitely will ask for service from him again. —AnnLe

2011-01-02 21:02:22   Winning a prize was never so beautiful. Dylan dog won a free groom from Tom during the Halloween Musical Chairs Contest at Toad Hollow. Not only was the cut superb and the grooming gorgeous, but Dylan had a great time hangin' with Tom and was a happy boy when it was all over. Thanks Tom for great service and next to finding the perfect hairdresser for me, getting a groomer I can trust for Dylan is the top of my list! —suzanneemerson
