Julie Erling - Owner

If you love what you do, then you will never have to work a day in your life. I have been in the pet industry for 12 years now, after having been a cosmetologist for 10 years. Pets are people too, so while creating Posh Pooch my goal was to provide customers with high quality grooming services with a French influenced ambiance. This same theme inspired the boutique, filled with high-end dog apparel, collars, beds, toys, treats, and food. I have always believed in quality customer service and being able to ensure that each customer and their pet leaves our salon happy and feeling valued.

In my eyes grooming requires a certain artistic talent and patience. All of my stylists are highly qualified, creative and passionate about what they do. We strive to provide the best experience for both people and their pets.

Katy - Receptionist / Buyer

KatyI joined the Posh Pooch Team in 2011. I now help out in the boutique with inventory, ordering product and also managing the grooming schedule.  I enjoy seeing all the adorable dogs or cats that come in for a new outfit or collar. It is so fun to see them all dressed in their new attire! We are always getting new products in, when they arrive it is like christmas. I also make sure our website & facebook is up-to-date with the lastest and greatest going on at Posh Pooch!

Diane – Receptionist

I've been an associate at Posh Pooch since 2010.  I have spent much of my life in dentistry; however, I came to Posh Pooch with 16 years of experience with a major retail chain.  It seems I learn something new about the pet world with each shift and enjoy meeting and assisting all of our guests, both two and four legged!

Ellen - Groomer / Receptionist

I grew up on a farm in central Minnestota where I was always surrounded by a variety of animals. After working in the secretarial field for more than 25 years I took a leap of faith in 2001 and decided to try my hand at dog grooming. I now specialize in short-haired and flat coated breeds that do not require standard haircuts, such as Labs, Pugs, Golden Retrievers, etc. I also work part-time in the boutique assisting customers with sales and work at the front desk scheduling appointments. At home I am owned by two cats and several rescued pocket pets.

Amy - Groomer

Since November 2011 I have been working here at Posh Pooch.  While I am new to grooming, I feel privileged to be picking up the latest skills and techniques from some of the industry's best stylists.  When I am not at Posh Pooch I am caring for patients at St. Joe's hospital or my own family of three children, a cat, and two dogs.  I have been a dog lover all my life.  As a child I would bring dogs home tied to my jump rope and would try to convince my mother they followed me so that she would let me keep them.  As a true dog lover, my goal is to become a highly skilled groomer of all breeds.

Ashley - Groomer

AshleyI have had a passion for dogs since I was young. I became interested in grooming when I saw all the different types of dogs being groomed at a grooming salon. I knew then what I wanted to do with my life. In 2013 I graduated from grooming school and became a groomer. I own a pug named Sparkles and it is because of her that pugs are one of my favorite breeds.
