Brooke Clark brushes Moose

Man’s best friend has new salon in town

Main Street in Stettler is home to quite a few hair salons, and now there's one for man's best friend.

Main Street in Stettler is home to quite a few hair salons, and now there’s one for man’s best friend.

Brooke’s K-9 Bath and Beauty, which is next to the new downtown park, has been opened since late July, but as of two weeks ago, now has a pretty turquoise sign announcing Brooke Clark’s new digs.

Clark, who graduated from Four Paws at Leduc with a 90 per cent average, opened her grooming salon as soon as she got back into town.

“I always had a passion for dogs,” Clark said, as she rubbed the ears of her black-and-white border collie, Moose. “I just didn’t know how I was going to make it my career.”

Clark said she looked at all sorts of options, from training to medicine, but came back to grooming as she was able to not only find a program offering training, but also because it runs in the family.

While in school, Clark lived with one of her aunts who had a grooming business, giving her hands-on experience while at school.

“It’s amazing,” Clark said of the work. “I absolutely love it.”

She said that while some of the work initially made her nervous, her “excellent instructors gave (her) the confidence (she) needed.”

Brooke’s K-9 Bath and Beauty is open by appointment, with grooming prices starting around $45 and going up dependent on size of the hound and the grooming services selected.

To make an appointment, phone 403-597-4252.
