Tina Dickel,
Groomer

Tina grew up in the small town of Vermilion, Ohio located on the north coast. She spent her youth helping her grandfather and father train dogs to compete in water races and helped her father with the family-owned business. Early in life Tina aspired to be a Veterinarian, but after further consideration decided to obtain a degree in business. Despite this decision, working with animals and business ownership always remained a goal. In 1997, her HR career brought her to Mankato. After purchasing a pet Giant Schnauzer, Tina and spouse Marilyn Fox, fell into the hobby of grooming, handling, and showing Giant Schnauzers. Tina was a highly regarded groomer/owner/handler in the Midwest Giant Schnauzer community and was encouraged by friends to start a grooming business. In 2004, Tina obtained a certification (ABCDT) for dog training through Animal Behavior College and dove into business ownership. Tina enjoys helping her staff achieve their potential and using her HR, quality control, and pet behavior knowledge to provide high quality services. Ultimately, she loves helping your pets look and feel their best!
