Simple Tips for Handling Common Doggie Problems Guest Blog Post by Tyler Evans of Dogzasters.com
One of the biggest mistakes we dog owners make is projecting our own human thoughts and emotions onto our pups. If your precious pup leaves a-- ahem-- package for you on the carpet, you may think he only did it to punish you. Same goes for when he destroys your favorite pair of shoes or leaves hair on your furniture. However, your dog doesn’t do these things to get under your skin. He’s just being a dog the best way he knows how. Fortunately, there are ways you can train your pup and steer him away from destructive behaviors so you can have a more harmonious relationship...Read more on the Blog...
Meet the Staff
Have you met all of our amazing staff? I am so proud to have these people as part of the Powder Hounds team. I am constantly inspired by the people I work with and I'm delighted to have a staff so filled with patience, joy, humor, skill and creativity for each and every dog and cat that comes through our doors. Here is a little more about the Powder Hounds women that you may see in the shop on any given day.
Lindsey Barr, Professional Certified Groomer & Salon Owner
Lindsey has been living in Steamboat Springs since 2004 and is happy to call this little slice of paradise home. She recieved her Professional Groomer's Certification and Animal CPR certification from Dog's Own Grooming Salon in Loveland, CO in 2014. When she's not grooming dogs, she's attending grooming conferences, playing with her own two dogs, Tuesday and Big Louie Knuckles from the West Side, hiking, playing with essential oils, writing, cooking, or curled up with a good book and a very large and mischevious orange cat named Junco.
Erin Smith, Professional Groomer Erin grew up on a farm in Missouri with 4 siblings and a wide variety of animal friends--from horses and dogs to chinchillas and ferrets. She moved to Steamboat a couple of years ago and is happy to call this paradise her new home. She graduated from a grooming academy in Missouri in 2014 and has been passionate about her career ever since then. When she's not at Powder Hounds, Erin likes to go on adventures with her own fur baby, a shih tzu/yorkie mix named Pudge. Whether it's going on a hike or hanging out at the shop, they are inseparable. Erin also enjoys painting, drawing, reading books, and being nerdy with her boyfriend.
Gwendolyn Romines, Professional Groomer
Gwen has been grooming for a little over 15 years. She started off working as an apprentice to a groomer who worked with show Standard Poodles and Afghan Hounds. She recently moved here with her husband, her 2 cats, Buddha and Pink, and her German Shepherd dog, Emma, from Colorado Springs, where she lived for 15 years. They are currently training Emma to be a Search and Rescue dog, so you may see them practicing around town! Gwen is very excited to be a part of the Steamboat community and call this beautiful town "Home".
Amanda Lewis, Groomer's Assistant Extraoadinaire
Amanda has made her happy home in Steamboat since 2013. She loves all animals, large and small, paws and hooves. In the past, she has worked for doggie daycare and a dog rescue organization in Vail that closely works on rehabilitating and fostering puppy mill and abused dogs. She has fostered several dogs in her own home, as well as helped train and care for aggressive dogs. Her two dogs, Sherpa and Suzy Q, are the center of her everyday life. Sherpa is a 2 year old husky pup that keeps her on her toes and very active. And Suzy Q is a shepherd mix that is the sweetest, most loyal dog she's ever known. She can't wait to meet your pups at Powder Hounds!
And now some happiness for your week...
I am so grateful for all of your support and for having such fantastic clients! Enjoy the end of summer!
