After completing my education at Nanhall School of Grooming, I designed a grooming space and opened Classic Canine Design, now Classic Grooming. The original studio was 400 square feet, located in Uptown Charlotte. Currently, with 20 employees, we occupy a 4000 square foot facility in the trendy SouthEnd neighborhood.

I’m truly grateful for so many wonderful clients and also fortunate to have developed such meaningful relationships. Classic Grooming has been built on those relationships and we have relied on their kind recommendations to grow the business.

I’m most grateful for the unbelievable talent of the Classic Grooming Team! They represent passion and a desire for the best. A diverse group that all have one thing in common….a huge heart for these amazing creatures called dogs.

I have to mention my beautiful standard poodle, Bridgette. She and I built a business together. Her beauty and grace opened many doors, and won many hearts. I miss her dearly.

I attended the South Carolina school of Dog Grooming in 2007 and started working at Classic Grooming in 2011. I applied to work at Classic Grooming in hopes of continuing to learn and grow as a groomer. Since beginning this job I have grown and gained more knowledge on specific breed trims and I am currently in the process of gaining certification through the NDGAA.

I have had the pleasure to be be working at Classic Grooming since August 2011. During that time, I have learned valuable lessons on the art of grooming. I have recently acquired my certification of non sporting breeds through the NDGAA with outstanding marks. I am passionate about what I do for all of the wonderful dogs that I meet. My number one priority is to make sure every dog receives loving care and respect during their visits with me.

COURTNEY BOAHN - DAYCARE ATTENDANT ~ with us since 05/17/2017

Having been an avid animal lover my entire life I’m ecstatic to be working with the Classic Grooming family! I’ve been in the K9 industry for four years now, two of which I’ve enjoyed here at Classic Grooming, and I look forward to all of the adventures to come. My knowledge of dog behavior only gets better every day as I watch over everyone’s fur babies in the daycare center.

MEAGHAN FARREN - GROOMER ~ with us since 02/07/2018

I have been in the pet industry for 15 years. My love for animals started at a young age, having a multitude of different small pets as well as dogs. I began my career at Petsmart as a dog trainer and pet bather, before being accepted to their grooming academy. I was with Petsmart for 10 years before deciding to work at a few privately owned groom shops to expand her experiences. I started with Classic Grooming in February of 2018 and recently became a Certified Terrier Groomer through the NDGAA. Looking forward to becoming a Certified Master Groomer and plans to compete at grooming shows in the future.


STACEY BRUNO - GROOMER ~ with us since 06/01/2018

I have been an animal lover my whole life. I grew up in a household where there were always dogs and cats running around and I began volunteering at shelters at the age of 13. I have a true passion for animals and have always wanted to become a groomer. I knew Classic Grooming was the right fit for me, because from my start here everyone was so generous in sharing their knowledge, skills, and passion!
