Born in Canada, 1975
I have been grooming since 1993.
I grew up on a farm with lots of horses, dogs, cats and the many “creatures” I brought home much to my moms dismay (after all you generally try to keep mice & Snakes outside the house right? LOL). We moved to Florida for a few years where I had my first Dog job, working for a breeder of Show dogs for a year before my family moved to Oregon. It was a few years later after I turned 18, that I got my big break working with my first love, Dogs!. I started work for a Multi-National Pet Store, Petsmart. I was posted in the grooming salon and started from the basics as a Bather. I progressed through an apprenticeship under a very experienced groomer. Four years later I decided to start my own dog grooming service. Jens Pet Grooming opened in 1997 in Springfield Oregon and stayed busy keeping Springfield’s doggies clean and happy until 2002 when I met my husband, Craig from Aberdeen, Scotland. Much to the dismay of my clients in the US, I moved to Scotland and within 3 months, we opened Watt-a-Dog Grooming located at our home in Cove Bay.
Since then I my business has been going great, with my custom built salon as centrepiece. I have made huge investments in specialist tools and equipment to ensure I have the best and safest equipment, we import many of our products and equipment from the US. We are always looking at investing in the best equipment for our business and ultimately this gives your pup an exclusive grooming experience.
My goal with Watt-A-Dog is to bring a professional grooming service to Aberdeen, with the care of our doggie clients paramount.

Born in Aberdeen , 1967
I have been working with my lovely wife since April 2006.
With a multitude jobs under my belt including Electrical Engineering , Audio Visual Technicial , Web Design . I was very lucky to be invited by my wife to apprentice under Jenifer’s supervision to become a bather at Watt-a-Dog Grooming.
I have alway loved dogs so it is the ideal job for me and working with my wife day to day is a pleasure for me .
I also have taken over the reception duties, web design , maintenance of all the equipment at the salon . The not so pleasant jobs for me include poop picker and the laundry but I just get on with it.
I am very lucky to be working with Jenifer as I get to see first hand the highly skilled and magic styles she does on each and every dog.
We limit my appointments to ensure every dog gets the full attention they deserve. With the emphasis on a non rushed one to one grooming session on each and every dog.
We both believe that customer service is number 1, so we are always here to help, you can call or email to discuss your dogs requirements.
