About Tender Touch

Professional background and philosophy

I am Caroline O'Brien and I've been a professional dog groomer and groomer trainer in both small business settings and for a major national chain. Through that work, I became acutely aware that a calm, focused approach lowers a pet's anxiety and establishes trust. This makes the experience agreeable and successful for both dog and groomer. 

What I provide

Your four-legged family member will receive a boutique experience in a warm, in-home setting.


  • oatmeal shampoo
  • aroma therapy conditioner
  • blow dry
  • nails clipped and filed
  • sanitary shave and upon request, anal gland expression  
  • pads of feet groomed
  • haircut
  • ears cleaned and hair plucked (if necessary)
  • perfume (upon approval) and bandana or bow. 

Furminator™ treatment to reduce shedding is offered as an additional option (talking to you, Corgis!)

By appointment only

A bath, pedicure and hair cut should not be fear-inducing or traumatic. If your dog is elderly or anxiety prone, I will take the time to provide them a pleasant experience.  My bottom line is not about how many dogs I can groom in a day, but to provide each client excellent, empathetic service.
