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.
Cherie - Manager
Cherie has 10 years of experience as a professional pet stylist and a lifetime of loving animals! She has worked in a variety of grooming shops, and her #1 focus is on the pets having an amazing experience in our salon. She is always willing to take whatever time is required to make sure a pet is comfortable and happy walking out the door. Her favorite type of groom is a hand-scissored "silhouette" cut on breeds like Golden Retrievers, Pomeranians, etc.
“I’ve been a pet stylist for over 40 years, & I can honestly say Cherie is one of the finest I’ve ever worked with.” ~ D.S.
“Cherie did a wonderful job with our dog, Olive! Olive is a little shy, but took no time in warming up... I would definitely bring her back. Thank you!” ~ L.H.

“Wonderful grooming experience at As the Fur Flies. My dog is very skittish. They were so patient with her and gentle… she feels great! She can't wait to go back!” ~E.A.
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 (email@example.com) us a picture of your receipt from the vet.
Rabies vaccination is the law, and it keeps all of us safe. We're working on hosting some vaccination clinics at the salon, so you can get those shots up to date and we'll have it on file, so stay tuned!
