Chikako's Professional Grooming
Chikako attended grooming school in Japan, receiving her license to groom all breeds of dogs. In 2000 she moved to the United States grooming Bichons and Poodles for professional dog show handlers. She later moved into companion pet grooming. One of her specialties is hand scissoring and does an absolutely beautiful job! (Scroll down to see some pictures of her work)
Chikako's excellent scissor work, developed while working in the show ring, is apparent in the above after picture of "Precious", a Bichon Frise.
Upon completion of her grooming session with Shih-Tzu, "Bo", he is delighted to show off his new look! Below are before and after photos.
This is "Gracie", a standard poodle, after being groomed by Chikako.
