Hi! I am Arturo and so thrilled to be joining the team at Nice Dog Grooming Salon.
I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. My father is a farmer there and raises livestock such as cows, horses, and chickens. Growing up on a farm was so amazing, and I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to grow up surrounded by beautiful animals. We also had several dogs as part of my family so it was destined that my career path would involve animal care in some form.
I went on to attend the Superior Institute of Agriculture in Santo Domingo to study farm management with a specialty in food production. I received my degree as a veterinarian and zoo technician.
In 2022 I moved to the United States to expand my professional career. I missed being surrounded by dogs, so I became a dog-walker which made me happy. A short time after, I began working for a boutique dog grooming salon in Boston. At the salon, I started out as a dog bather and shortly after trained to become a groomer. I learned all about proper dog care, from skin and coat maintenance to complete body grooming.
When the opportunity came up to work with Antonio in his new dog salon, I knew this was an amazing opportunity for me to develop my skills and learn from the best!
