We have carefully assembled a team of highly-skilled, well-educated pet lovers here at As the Fur Flies so that we ensure that your pets receive the best care possible during their stay at the salon. We are all members in good standing with the International Society of Canine Cosmetologists, certified in Pet First Aid and CPR, and committed to constantly learning more about our craft! We have two educated and certified trainers on staff to help us blend our knowledge of grooming with their knowledge of animal behavior.
Nancy dreamed up the concept for As the Fur Flies when she was a student at the Michigan School of Canine Cosmetology over 16 years ago. She has worked as a groomer and manager in small and large salons and managed a boarding kennel. In addition to her experience as a pet groomer and kennel operator, she has multiple master’s degrees and over 7 years of experience working in a top tech company. Although she primarily manages the business side of As the Fur Flies, her grooming specialty while at the shop is the cats. If you need your cat groomed in Austin, give Nancy a call!
“This place is awesome! I had trouble finding a cat groomer in Austin. Nancy worked with me to arrange a time when there wouldn't be dogs present. The shop is clean and everyone is super friendly and they were of course very kind to my cat. I will be coming back here!” ~ A.N.
“Nancy is the best groomer ever!” ~ T.S.
Amber - Trainer and Marketing Manager
Amber is our receptionist, marketing guru, and resident accomplished dog trainer. She also fills in as a groomer when needed! We turn to Amber when a dog is having an anxiety or behavioral issue that we need solved in a caring way. If your pet gets worried about nail trims, needs to walk more calmly on a leash, or just needs some manners, Amber is your girl!
Melody - Groomer
Melody comes to us from southeast Texas with several years of experience in both grooming and dog training. She does amazing work helping nervous pets feel more comfortable and confident. Melody’s fluffy-coated scissor cuts are beautiful!
Landen - Groomer
Landen may be the youngest member of Team ATFF, but he has a way with animals! The dogs all respond really well to him and leave calmer and happier after being groomed by Landen!
We require proof of current rabies vaccination. We need to be able to verify the expiration date, which, unfortunately means the tag doesn't cut it. Bummer, we know. But we can always call your vet, or you can text (512-985-7766) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) us a picture of your receipt from the vet.
Rabies vaccination is the law, and it keeps all of us safe. We host monthly vaccination clinics at the salon with Dr. Janet Roark, so you can get those shots up to date and we'll have it on file!
