Reynolds believes the two main ingredients for being a successful dog groomer is passion and patience.
“You need to have a love for dogs and this will help you to be patient with them when they may decide not to cooperate,” she said.
Although she says the work is challenging, especially considering it’s a one woman show behind the scenes, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I love working with different breeds and meeting different customers,” she said. “Everyday, I’m learning something new. Every day I groom at least eight dogs or other animals. Each one takes anywhere between two and three hours.”
Diva Dogs also has a retail section which offers spunky attire for furry friends. Owners can find a variety of outfits from sundresses with flip flops and sunglasses to a Harley Davidson biker outfit. The shop also offers travel bowls, fancy collars, and outlandish photo frames.
Although walk-ins are welcome, Reynolds suggests its best to call ahead to schedule a pet for an appointment. For more information call her at 283-4220 or visit Diva Dogs at 7307 Niagara Falls Blvd.
“All are welcome. If it has four legs and fur, we’ll take it,” she said.
