WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) Cyndie Taylor had been grooming pets at a local salon, but recently set out on her own and ordered a $24,000 custom-built trailer to reach clients on the road.
A trip to the salon is a pampering experience for many women, but for Willow, Zoey and Molly McKinney heading in for a trim often is a stressful ordeal.
Thankfully there is a new service in town to make hair care more enjoyable for these four-legged ladies.
Groom-A-Bull Mobile Pet Salon owner Cyndie Taylor has taken her clippers on the road thanks to the purchase of an all-inclusive trailer.
Taylor bathes, dries and clips dogs and cats of all sizes in the mobile salon while parked in her customers’ driveways, and there isn’t a shortage of pet owners eager to book appointments for a more comfortable grooming experience.
“The benefit is for our pets, not me. It is about their comfort level,” said Michelle McKinney, owner of poodles Willow and Zoey as well as calico cat Molly.
“If you put a cat in a carrier and take them across town, they are stressed out long before you even get to the groomer.
Being able to just take her to see Cyndie in the driveway is fabulous. (Molly, Willow and Zoey) can even look out the window and see our house while they are getting groomed.”
While Taylor has been a certified groomer since 2010, she has been entrenched in the world of animals from a young age with years spent at horse, dog and cat shows.
She had been grooming at a local salon, but recently set out on her own and ordered the $24,000 custom-built trailer to reach more clients. While reducing anxiety in pets is a big benefit of the mobile service, Taylor also is able to reach homebound residents like senior citizens.
