When it comes to taking care of our animals, Lewis County residents find a way to take care of theirs like family. Many care for their fur babies just like one of the family, including regular grooming. Amanda Stockburger with Amanda's Pampered Pets is a mobile groomer. She will come to your home and groom your pets in familiar surroundings.
A mobile groomer comes to your home with their table and equipment. She provides the same services as you would get from a groomer, but from the luxury of your home. She will groom and bathe your pet in the comfort of your home while you relax.
Amanda has been working with animals from a young age. "I have been working with animals since my first job in high school," she said. "I worked as a kennel technician in a veterinary clinic. I helped the veterinarians and vet techs there and learned about animal anatomy, physiology and ailments." She has been grooming for 17 years.
Amanda prefers being a mobile groomer, she stated, "I started mobile grooming to help out some friends and the word got around about me. People loved having someone come over to the house to groom their 'kids.' I started Amanda's Pampered Pets in 2010 when I realized working in a shop was not for me anymore. I love to get out and see my clients where they are most comfortable."
Many of her clients feel a special appreciation for Amanda, Chris Morang stated, "I have never met a groomer like Amanda. She grooms my pappillons, my older one was abused and he needed a permanent groomer. She is amazing, she handles my dogs with love and care. She talks to them before she does anything, I think they understand her. She will sit on the floor with them and talk to them. Plus, her grooming fees are very reasonable."
Elizabeth Laffranchini is new to Amanda's Pampered Pets, she stated, "I was pleasantly surprised by Amanda's willingness to groom my fur babies in my home. Amanda adapts to the environment and provides love and care. I knew she knew what she was doing when she said, 'I got this' and she did! She verifies before she leaves if she has done the job I wanted."
Amanda Stockburger is rooted in the community, her parents live in Winlock and she has been coming to South Lewis County for years grooming pets. She will travel to where you are which gives great comfort to your animals and puts the pressure off of you. Plus, if you want, you can watch what she does. Many do at first but realize after, she knows what she is doing and every animal is safe with her. Her fees are reasonable, starting at $35 for small dogs and $55 for large dogs. Her grooming includes baths, toenail trimming, ear cleaning and whatever else you might need. She can be reached on Facebook at Amanda's Pampered Pets or you can call her directly at 360-508-6896.
