Owner Maci Johnson opened The Handsome Hound Grooming in Vandalia across from Abel’s Quick Shop on W. US Highway 54 on Monday April 29.
Maci Johnson was grooming a “handsome client” at her business on Highway 54 during the interview. She had another client waiting to be groomed, and yet another arrived during the interview.
Five groomings had already taken place. “A good start for opening day,” Johnson said.
Johnson loves dogs and had aspirations of becoming a veterinarian.
She fell in love with grooming, however.
She has more than four years experience in the grooming business having worked two years as a bather at “PetSmart”, and working two additional years in Whiteside, Mo. apprenticing with a groomer there.
Open by appointment only, The Handsome Hound Grooming can be reached by calling 573-567-6925.
Prices will vary depending on pets size and hair type.
