Tonya, Groomer at Hounds Lounge Fayetteville

Meet Our Fayetteville Groomer, Tonya

Dog grooming is one of my favorite parts of working with our furbabies all day. I am trained in professional show dog grooming and handling and I once won the Barkleigh Competitive Grooming Award. For 20 years, I owned and operated Pups n’ Suds located in Huntsville, Arkansas, which was voted Best of the Best Groomer in Madison County from 2013-2017.

Education and Certifications

I am certified in dog grooming from the National Dog Groomers Association of America and dog training from the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I am an American Kennel Club certified breeder and I’ve obtained credited hours in animal husbandry. Lastly, I am a USDA authorized kennel attendant and handler.

Favorite Part of Her Job

My favorite part of my job is using my God-given talent and abilities to improve the overall wellbeing of our beloved and cherished furbabies as well as making them look amazing! The rewards are endless. Best job ever!
