Hello, my name is Caroline and I am the owner and groomer here at Shear Art Pet Salon. I specialize in AKC cuts according to breed standards and the wonderful art of hand scissoring.I also provide creative grooming for your mixed breed dog.
There is nothing more I enjoy than having a customer tell me, “Just make him look great, use your imagination.”The most rewarding part of grooming is to be able to create whatever I envision.For me, grooming is more than just a job; it also serves as a creative outlet.
I began grooming in 1977 and years later managed a kennel for 10 years in Orange County.The kennel/grooming shop was later sold and the rest they say, is history; I have been a professional pet groomer for the past 30 years.
I also breed, raise and show llamas as well as bengal cats at my ranch. Not only do I groom dogs and cats, full-time, but I also offer my services yearly for livestock shearing anything from horses, goats, sheep and llamas.I have shown my llamas yearly from the west coast to the east coast since 1997 and attained multiple National and Regional Championships.I am the past President of the Llama Association of North America (LANA), past newsletter editor of the LANA News; past Board of Director for the Llama Association of Southern California (LASC), and am “currently” 2nd Vice President for The International Bengal Cat Society.
I led the very first llama entry (a group of 18 animals) in the 2007 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade, which was publicized all over the world.
I have appeared in commercials with my llamas as well as made a guest appearance with a llama in the tv show “You Lie Like a Dog.”

I have been living in the Coachella Valley since 1995 and have raised two wonderful children who are now on to college.
My salon has been designed as an open and spacious setting and we did not leave out a single detail. It was built with comfort, eye appeal and convenience all in mind.
Shear Art Pet Salon is a "state-of-the-art" shop, designed for your pet's comfort and well being in mind. When your pet is here, you can trust that your cat or dog is being treated with kindness, not to mention will leave with a quality cut that holds. We are a clean and stylish salon and all grooming is done in the front of the store so you can see it all. Your pet will be provided with water the entire time they are with me and potty walks, are available, as well.
My calling in life is with the animals, I don't just love them, I adore them! I am so fortunate to be able to be a part of their lives and love what I do for a living.
