Julie Erling - Owner/Groomer (ISCC Member)

Julie believes that if you love what you do, then you will never have to work a day in your life. She has been in the pet industry for 20 years now, after having been a cosmetologist for 10 years. Pets are people too, so while creating Posh Pooch her 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. Julie has always believed in quality customer service and being able to ensure that each customer and their pet leave the salon happy and feeling valued.

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