Janice Ervin, Proprietor
Answering her inner call to serve, Janice Ervin volunteered in the United States Army from 1979 - 1983. Excelling in her profession, she was honored as “Soldier of the Month”, achieved the rank of Sergeant, and was awarded the Army Achievement Medal for meritorious service.

Throughout the 25 years that followed, she lived in Maryland, and raised a family while teaming with organizations to support her community. For the past several years, she was honored to serve as a Hospice and then later, a Vigil Service volunteer for Hospice of the Chesapeake in Maryland. Her desire to serve, coupled with her hope to ease suffering, eventually led her to become a grief companion for those who lost loves ones – both human and animal.

Three years ago, Janice left the bustle of Washington DC for a calmer life at the Delaware shore. That move offered her the perfect opportunity for a new career. She attended the Virginia School of Pet Grooming which was listed in the 2008 Washingtonian Magazine as the number one facility in the DC, VA, DE area for grooming study, and voted ‘Best Pet Care Facility in Northern Virginia for the Manassas Park and the City of Manassas areas’. There she became certified as an all breeds dog and cat groomer. Her studies included accurate grooming measures for felines as well as a wide variety of canine pedigrees with emphasis on the most popular breeds (Cocker Spaniels, Poodles, Bichon Frises, West Highland White Terriers, Malteses, and Yorkshire Terriers).

Janice sees grooming as another opportunity to serve, while connecting with the innocent, forgiving, vulnerable hearts of animals. As such, she firmly believes that animal safety and superior treatment through patience, love, kindness and dedication are necessary qualities for a groomer. Until March of this year, she groomed sweet furries at Yappies Cuttery in Manassas Virginia. She is now bringing her special blend of warmth and service to the pets in Sussex County. Utilizing the of warmth and service to the pets in Sussex County.

Utilizing her understanding for the temperament and psychology of the canine/feline, her greatest desire is to offer a service that melds superior grooming quality, with a calm, loving consideration for all the critters that pass through her doors.
