New Groomer Finds Her Passion at Wags N Whiskers Wiregrass

Meet Rising Star and Pet Groomer Grad Kristin Whitfield from Wags and Whiskers of the Wiregrass in Dothan, AL. Kristin found her “furever” career after a Hurricane-inspired relocation that helped her reconnect with her love for animals.

According to Mentor Jilly Mucciarone: “Kristin grew exponentially throughout level two and worked hard to master the stylized leg trim. Kudos!”

Why did you choose dog grooming as a career?

As a young girl I always knew I wanted to work with animals. Coming from a very small town the possibilities were few and far between in the animal field, so I spent most of my early career in retail. When Hurricane Michael hit we took the chance to move to Alabama. Here I got a job at another boarding/grooming facility and rekindled my passion for working with animals. Due to some circumstances I had to leave that job and that’s when I found Wags. Wags took the chance and sent me to grooming school. I have excelled further then I could have ever imagined!

What did you enjoy most during your coursework?

Being one on one with the dogs and learning new skills!

Where can we see your work?

I currently work at Wags and Whiskers of the Wiregrass in Dothan AL.

What are your future goals?

I want to learn creative grooming!

Any advice for aspiring groomers?

Be patient with yourself and you will succeed!
