Katie Bonham - Owner/Master Stylist
My name is Angela 'Katie' Bonham. My family moved to Colorado in 1994. I graduated high school in Buena Vista, Colorado, then went on to college at UNC in Greeley, Colorado. I moved to Colorado Springs in 2001 and groomed my first dog and also continued college courses through PPCC. I have been grooming, over 20 years.
I LOVE WHAT I DO. Most of all, I love to serve and to see other people be of service to the community.
We are in the business of grooming, our goal is to make every client (whether human or animal) FEEL loved and respected as they should be every day. I am full of sincere integrity and hold true to very respectful morals and values.
-- I have always felt a need to serve and know how wonderful it feels to help others. I have known hard times, times of poverty, times of grief, times of desperation, struggle, and sadness....but most of all, times of triumph, tears of joy, and reminders that we serve a very real and faithful GOD.
My grandfather was in the Navy and fought in WWII, my uncle was in the Army and fought in Vietnam, my brother served in our Navy and my husband did 4 tours to Iraq and Afghanistan fighting in the current war. I have a VERY special place in my heart for our military men and women!! We offer a military discount ANY DAY OF THE YEAR. In addition to that, we offer first-time client discounts, multiple dog discounts, and senior discounts.
My family is in the business of loving God and loving others. We strive hard to do the right thing, always.
We want to help the community and those who support us in any way we can, therefore it is equally important to us to hire a staff fully capable of understanding our hearts to serve.
We are so proud to introduce the below-listed staff. All staff members go through a long hiring process and rigorous drug testing. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts for serving as a team with us.
Rakalynn - Master Stylist/ Lead
I've always had a huge heart for animals! Honestly, I never thought I'd work at a salon, but here I am doing what I love most. I love every single dog that walks into our salon. A lot of the time when no one has seen me in a while, it is because I'm in the kennels loving on the dogs! I have two puppy dogs, one is named Simba and he is a German Shepherd/ Border Collie mix. The other one is named Orien and he is a Boston Terrier! I'm more than grateful to be part of your sweet and wonderful dog's life!
