We opened DesiLu’s Pet Boutique in Mukilteo to provide a clean, warm, and friendly environment where our neighbors could bathe their pets or have their pets groomed by dedicated professionals without worry.
“Desi” is our Maltese featured on our logo. As with nearly all Maltese, he doesn’t know he is a dog; as far as he is concerned we belong to him, and we don’t have the heart to tell him otherwise! Our love for Maltese dogs arose after we met “Lucy”, Desi’s cousin in Virginia. Thus, she is the “Lu” in DesiLu. Lucy is no longer with us, however, her picture hangs in tribute in our shop.
Jennifer Kamin, our Senior Groomer, has been with DesiLu’s since the day we opened. Trained by Lori DeHoog, animal trainer and canine colorist for the movie industry, Jen’s work can be seen in the past Seattle-based TV show Frasier, and in the movies Benji, As Good as it Gets, Homeward Bound, and The Grinch, among others. Practicing her craft for more than 18 years, Jen enjoys a large, ever growing following of “best friends”.
Amber Smith graduated from the Master’s Grooming Academy and has been grooming professionally for over eight years. She is extremely talented and listens well to each customer’s wants and needs. She has worked for pet supply companies and for licensed veterinarians. She has also fostered and rescued abused and abandoned pets and currently cares for two of her own mixed-breed dogs and one talkative tabby cat named Bogart. She has also shown soft-coated Wheaten Terriers in competition.
Clients have commented that we have the best groomers in the Northwest. We think so as well. Please come in and see for yourself.
