Kind, Talented & Professional My maltipoo Ali hadn't been groomed many times and was extremely nervous with groomers. Donna at Rustic Ridge Boarding Kennels put me at ease the first time I spoke with her; she was extremely professional and assured me she would be gentle and patient with Ali. Ali's grooming went better than I had expected. Not only did Ali's haircut come out terrific, but the actual experience for Ali and for me was excellent. Helen really knew how to handle Ali in way that made her feel comfortable and secure. She was extremely patient and kind with her. The in home grooming experiences was a really positive experience.
