Spiffy Dogs

Simply Great Grooming


Spiffy Dogs has been a well known name for 20 years. My name is Shannon Morey and I started working in the grooming industry in 1987. I learned on the job until 1989 when I went to a grooming school in Chico California where I trained with Carol Hill. I then worked to perfect my craft until 1996 when I opened a shop on Elbow Drive called Spiffy dogs. I competed in many competitions nationally and internationally throughout that time, winning and placing in most of them. The most memorable, was competing and winning the gold medal with team Canada at the World Grooming competition in London England in 1999. I closed the doors of Spiffy Dogs in 2006 after 10 years and contracted my services out to another grooming company, still under my Spiffy Dogs brand. The Spiffy Dogs brand brings excellence, loyalty, caring and honesty to the grooming business. I have never let a dog leave my care without it looking its best. I strive to bring the best quality and care to the dogs that have been left in my supervision. Spiffy Dogs has now re-opened its doors for business once again, to bring you the excellent care and satisfaction you are looking for when placing you best friend in my hands.

I just took my two dogs to Spiffy dogs and was extremely impressed with the professionalism and quality I received there. I had my dogs bathed and trimmed, but one of my dogs is very excitable. I felt I left him in very capable hand and when I returned not only did he have the best trim he had ever had, he was extremely happy. Both the dogs seem to have really enjoyed themselves and when I took them back the next time they went in wagging their tails.

Shannon has been our groomer for 20 years, having groomed all five of our Airedales during that time. She is an outstanding groomer and has given them all beautiful cuts. More importantly, she treats each dog and their specific needs with care and patience. From our young, energetic wild ones to our aging, arthritic ones, Shannon adjusts her grooming practice to each dog and their unique requirements, which keeps us taking our pups back to her.

We have been taking our dogs every 5 weeks for approximately 25 years. Shannon is professional, does amazing work (3 Portuguese Water Dogs and 1 Bichon), and the dogs absolutely love her. If you are looking for a groomer look no further--Shannon is the one!
