Head groomer and shop owner Maxine, has been grooming since 1972,
attended Ag college in Los Angeles and moved to Houston, taking over at Gay's
Bunker Hill Grooming, (first located on I-10 service road at Bunker Hill Rd) in 1976.
The shop moved to its present location in 1984. She started showing and breeding boston terriers in 1980 and will happily tell you "her life has gone to the dogs".
Over the years, the challenge for Maxine to do the best work possible for each customer's pet to look its very best has proudly been met with an open mind, to
listen to what each customer wants their pet to look like, and to continue to seek
and explore new techniques with new products to achieve this end.
As a long upstanding dog lover, Maxine is a proud member of the all breed Houston Kennel Club, a past officer of the national Boston Terrier Club of America and the Greater Houston Boston Terrier club.
As an onsite hands-on worker, Maxine presently has a salon staff of three
additional groomers and three assistants. Individualized grooming skills include
precision scissor cuts, show ring style Bichon and terrier trims, terrier hand stripping and CAT grooming.
