Owner & Lead Groomer
Hello, my name is Ruth Watts and I am the owner/head groomer of The Hairy Hound as of March 2013. Previously I owned Country Clippers dog grooming salon in Palm Harbor for six years. I attended the Bay Area Pet Grooming Academy and received my diploma in May 2007.
While growing up in England I started working with dogs at age 14 and went on to work in various boarding, breeding , and show kennels. After meeting my husband in Italy I then relocated to America in 1981.
I spent several years at home raising our three children and breeding pugs. The kids have grown and moved on and I’m back to full time grooming which has always been my passion! I will always take the time with your pet to make sure you are happy with the final groom, but more importantly that your pet is happy coming to The Hairy Hound.
