Hello! My name is Laci I am the proud owner of Dog-a-holick.

I grew up in Idaho, but first came to Maine to work in 1998. I spent a lot of time traveling before focusing in on what I am passionate about: dogs. 

I worked at a Vet’s office in “the County” for 1 year before we were relocated to Western NY for my boyfriend’s job. While in NY I worked at the largest animal shelter in the greater Rochester area, as well as one of the largest K9 campuses in the Finger lakes. While at those jobs I attended  two different schools and became a certified dog groomer, and graduated with my business degree. 

Now that we’re back in Maine, I’m excited to realize my long time goal of owning my own grooming salon. Dogaholick is the realization of a dream and I truly am a Dogaholick!

Hi I"m Emily

I've lived in Raymond my whole life and have always been around dogs and other animals.

I attended school at Happy Paws Unleashed Grooming Academy. I loved every day learning and working with dogs. When I graduated I was sad to leave but nothing beats working at Dog a-holick. At work every day I'm greeted with tail wags and slobbery kisses from the best dogs. Life can't get any better than that.

Hi I’m Casey I always knew I wanted to work with animals even from a really young age. I liked learning about them and wanted to do something more; grooming was brought to my attention after I graduated high school.  After graduating from A+ Pet Grooming Academy, I now get the chance to continue to learn about grooming and get to work with dogs of all shapes and sizes, and I couldn’t be happier.
