My name is Dorine, and I am a Certified Master Pet Stylist with 27 years of professional experience in dog & cat grooming. I have had a deep love for animals since childhood; at the age of eight I began bathing and walking dogs in my neighborhood, and by the time I turned twelve I was doing odd jobs for my favorite pet shop to earn credit to purchase a bird.
Animals are a huge part of my life, and I truly appreciate having the opportunity to work with them each day. In addition to my 27 years of pet grooming experience, I have also spent more than 14 years working as a grooming instructor. I love my career, and I enjoy being able to teach others how to properly groom pets. Schooling is an important part of becoming a pet groomer, and I am proud of the fact that I have completed the strenuous advanced training required to earn the certification of Master Pet Stylist.
I opened Pet Makeovers, LLC, my home-based pet grooming salon in Mesa, AZ, in order to share my years of grooming expertise with pet parents of the East Valley. I understand that a pet really does become a member of your family, and I believe in giving each one of my furry clients the same attention and affection that they receive at home. My goal is to remove the stress that a dog or cat may associate with grooming by providing a comfortable environment, gentle handling, and positive reinforcement.
Jen and Cooper
My name is Jen and I was born and raised in Arizona. I am the proud mother of a beautiful daughter, my dog Cooper, and my cat, Sophia. I have always loved animals and that is why I became a certified Vet Tech at Apollo college in 2009. I worked as a vet tech for 10 years and this is where I met Dorine in 2020. I was able to watch her makeover a few of our patients at the pet hospital. I was so impressed with her talent and patience with her furry clients. After that, I began referring friends and their fur babies to Dorine. In Late 2021 I decided to make the switch to grooming and joined the Pet Makeovers team. I absolutely love working with animals and I am excited to meet and work with your pets!
