About the Groomer

About The Groomer 

My name is Sandra O'Neal and I have been grooming since 1983.  I began as an apprentice in Midland/Odessa.   I moved to Austin in 1990 and worked at Bark and Purr as a groomer until 1993.  I left Bark and Purr to work at Midtown Grooming, where I have managed the shop for the past 14 years.  Over the past 20 years, I am specialized in scissoring techniques and grooming of geriatric and fear biters.  I am an avid believer that animals should not have to be sedated in order to be groomed.  I have made it a personal goal of mine to rehabilitate animals off of sedation and have been very successful.  Difficult or dangerous animals are frequently recommended to me by many area groomers  and vets. I am an active memer of ISCC (International Society of Canine Cosmetologists) and in a continuing effort to enrich the growth and development of my knowledge as to assure pet styling excellence, quality services and humane treatment of all animals entrusted in my care.  I am also certified in animal First Aid and CPR. 

The Leader of the Pack van I am currently driving is a state of the art mobile grooming shop.  The van is completely self contained with water and electricity.  I selected this Mercedes built van due to it's many "eco friendly" environmental and safety features.  The engine is diesel and I use a low sulfur diesel fuel that burns 90 percent cleaner than gasoline run engines.  The groooming equipment is powered by an inverter system that runs off of 4 industrial sized batteries that can be recycled when their battery life dies.  I only use bio- degradable shampoos and products so I am able to drain my gray water right back onto my lawn without hurting it. 

If at any time you would like to join me in the van while your pet is being groomed just ask. Its quite the experience and you will gain alot of knowledge on your pets skin, coat, and general health tips.
