PUPDATE! Meet the Team: Pablo Jimenez, Lead Groomer
If you’re looking for a dog groomer with decades of experience and countless pawsitive reviews, look no further than Pablo!
Pablo has been a well-sought-after groomer at PUPS Pet Club, River North for the past five years, but has been a professional groomer for close to 20. It all started when his cousin, Wendy, became interested in dog grooming.
Wendy convinced Pablo to consider this career path as well, and he quickly fell in love with the craft. Eventually, they even convinced their other cousins, Stefanie and Rueben, to tag along as well. All four cousins now work for PUPS. When we say the dog business is a family business – we mean it!
Over the years, Pablo has groomed thousands of dogs and breeds. However, Pomeranians and Poodle mixes are his favorite, because they’re “fluffy but sculpt-able”.
And although he loves all of his clients, he wouldn’t be at PUPS without Kathleen Preodor and her dog, Cooper. They have been his most loyal customers for the past 15 years. Plus, she was one of the first people to introduce him to PUPS!
If Pablo had to give pet-parents one grooming tip, it would be to brush and comb your dog at least 20 minutes a day to help with the condition of the coat in between grooms. If your dog is matted, you may think that washing them at home will help. But ultimately, this will actually create “a horrible snowball effect,” and create more matts. So, let Pablo and our wonderful team of groomers take care of all your pup’s grooming needs!
