ANTHONY HACKETT - OWNER
In March 2018 I became the proud new owner of Paws and People Too. I've been a certified professional Pet Groomer for 14 years (and counting!). I have worked at many pet oriented places, working with a range of animals from pocket pets on up. I am a proud Poodle Dad to an Apricot Miniature named Teddy who is with me every day. I'm living my best life, and I greet every day with a smile. I'm truly blessed. I've always dreamed of having my own salon, and now that I've made it, I have a new dream: to be owner of the best grooming salon!

Brittany Jane Atkinson
My name is Brittany Jane, I am a certified professional Pet Groomer graduate from Animal Behavior College. I'm married to a Vet Technician, so I'm surrounded by animals all day! We have three cats (Special Sauce, Argentum, and Germanium), a rabbit (Asiago), and a Standard Poodle (Ursa)! Soon Ursa will be travelling to the shop with me most days! You can follow my grooming adventure on my Instagram or Facebook page that I update frequently!
My name is Quincy, I'm Anthony's uncle, and a senior groomer. I've been working with hair my whole life, coming from a family of barbers. When I was a young man, I started honing my craft. I've worked in many barber shops, until one day I decided to work part time as a dog bather, because I love dogs. Soon after starting, I was taught how to groom. Since I was already proficient with the tools of the trade, it didn't take long to rise up the ranks. I've been a professional Pet Groomer for 7 years.
My name is Kelsey and I'm new to the Paws and People Too family but I've worked under Anthony's leadership in the past. I have been in the pet industry for five years, and grooming full time for the last two years. I love grooming Westies, and any breed that requires a lot of hand scissoring. I'm really interested in creative grooming and hope to incorporate it in to our daily grooms some day! Finally I just want to say, I'm the mother of a very active and happy three year old, so I have a lot of practice in patience which helps me every day. Thanks for reading and I can't wait to meet everyone!
My name is Heather Moore. I have been grooming for about three years now and absolutely loving it! Ever since I was a little girl dogs have always been my passion and I knew I wanted to work with animals. So I thought why not grooming? I have fallen in love with the profession. My favorite breed to groom is a Golden retriever, and Pugs. I hope to own them one day! I also hope to keep expanding my knowledge on grooming styles and techniques, and creating bonds with dogs and people that will last a lifetime! I am a mom of a senior corgi named Foxy, and three ferrets: Ferrah, Torr, and Gandolf!
My name is Kyle. I just recently started working with the Paws and People Too gang. I already love everyone and the dogs are beautiful! I actually have never worked with dogs before, but have been in 4H and other farming community groups growing up. I raised/showed chickens, rabbits, mini horses, and other critters. However, cooking was my passion so I've been working in restaurants my whole adult life. I just moved back up to the area after working in Disney World for nearly five years, and my friend Brittany talked me into trying something new for work. Who knew I would love it so quickly! I hope to get to know everyone very well, the people and their paws, too!!
I'm Ciarra, one of the senior bathers. This is my first job working with animals, but I have two Boston Terriers at home and I love dogs. I now want to become a groomer some day! I love meeting all the cute doggos and getting to know their personalities. I especially love Boston Terriers, French Bulldogs, English bulldogs, and Bernese Mountain dogs! I'm so excited to learn new things and for this opportunity!
My name is Kait and I'm one of the new bathers. I have a senior chihuahua and a rescue Cocker Spaniel at home. I've been in the animal field for 5 years, previously in shelters. I've loved dogs since I was a kid and I used to beg my mom to bring home all the dogs we saw. I can't wait to meet all your babies!
My name is Matt and I’ve had dog related jobs since 2017! My house has always been home to cats and dogs since I was born. I’ve had German Shepherds, a Rat Terrier, and currently a Belgian Malinois named Jarvis. My favorite breeds include Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, French Bulldog, Pomeranian, and any other dog that will let me give them attention. I hope to become a groomer one day!
My name is Olivia and I’m one of the new bathers. I am super excited to be working with dogs all day! This is my first job working with animals but I’m eager to learn about the different breeds and methods of bathing. I may only be at Paws and People Too for a short time but I am very grateful for this opportunity and new experience!
