When gentle music isn’t drifting through the speakers in the grooming room at Little Critter's Salon, you might overhear owner Deborah cooing and singing to her canine clientele. The serenade is one of many soothing tactics she has picked up over her 20-year career as a groomer and trainer. Other gentle methods include the use of organic shampoos, and a slow, gentle touch. This careful approach to grooming helps her staff work with more difficult pets without resorting to sedation.
When it comes to grooming, Deborah shows off her keen eye for style with a list of fur styles to choose from. Additionally, her groomers are always happy to offer pet-care advice, such as suggestions for fur-enhancing supplements and interpretations of their recurring dream about chasing a squirrel that smells like their mother.

In addition to her private readings, Boussarhane hosts monthly gallery meetings, participates frequently in radio interviews, and holds psychic development classes that help participants hone their own clairvoyant abilities.
