After working for two decades in pharmaceutical sales, lifelong animal lover Maggie Joyner knew it was time to follow a vocation closer to her heart. After trading in her medication samples for a pair of clippers, she founded Hair of the Dog Wash and Groom Salon. She immediately set to work making her grooming room as stress-free as possible for her canine customers.
As one means of accomplishing this goal, she installed hydraulic-lift fiberglass tubs and tables designed to accommodate large or aging animals without having to restrain them by the neck. A Clipper Vac professional grooming system was the next addition, allowing Maggie’s combs and clippers to comfortably remove matted fur and bones buried beneath dense overcoats. Today, when she isn’t busy combing through fur or clipping nails, Maggie continues to demonstrate her love for animals by finding new, permanent homes for foster dogs.
