PUPDATE! Meet the Team: Tanner McCoy, Grooming Apprentice
Your dog is already adorable, but team members like Tanner make them look even better!
Tanner is currently enrolled in the grooming apprenticeship at our Streeterville Club. The PUPS Pet Club program is a six-month hands-on program led by experienced groomer, Bryan. As Tanner gets more and more experience, he will be able to confidently groom dogs of various breeds and sizes, with ease.
Working with dogs was an easy choice for Tanner because he has always enjoyed having them around. Tanner loves all dogs but he has a soft spot for Rio, the goldendoodle who regularly attends Daycare in Streeterville. He also loves grooming Dobermans because they are his favorite dog breed.
Tanner thoroughly enjoys interacting with PUPS members before and after their scheduled grooming appointments. He also loves the work environment at PUPS and says it’s “way less stressful” than his past jobs. He previously worked as an exterminator, so he’s continuing his work with critters, but working with dogs is more fun than bugs! He also worked as a barista at various Starbucks locations.
When he’s not at our Streeterville club, you can find Tanner hanging out in Roscoe Village. He loves that this neighborhood is fairly quiet because it reminds him of his hometown of Naperville. He also enjoys playing video games, cuddling his two cats, spending quality time with his girlfriend and drinking Virga Chefe coffee.
Please join us in wishing Tanner the very best and we look forward to him graduating in the Spring!
