Meet Us

We started our family business in 2011, and are blessed by our numerous clients – many who have become our friends – who have made our modest venture a success.


A native of Mechanicsville, Donna is the head groomer and backbone of The Classy Canine. She began caring for animals as a child, grooming and enjoying her horses, dogs, and pig! Donna was graduated from a renowned grooming school in Northern Virginia, finishing top of her class. When not busy at work she enjoys outdoor activities with her family.


Susan’s sweet voice is the one you hear when getting an appointment reminder phone call. She helps Donna manage appointments and loves to chat! Susan keeps up with grooming notes and knows our doggy customers by name. Susan is Donna’s mother.


Working behind the scenes, Tom handles the administrative and accounting stuff. He is also the company “go-fer” and handyman. He is Donna’s dad.


The friendly ladies at Rutland Animal Hospital (RAH) act as our receptionists, greeting you and helping us by checking your pets in and out. Our grooming business is located within RAH but is physically separated from their operation. We are two different companies. As a convenience, your payments are made to RAH and then they pay us. You don’t need to be a customer of RAH to be our client.
