    • Cheri Rehr has been grooming for 14 years. She came to grooming later in life after a long career in the food service industry. She is not your "normal" contest groomer, unless you count her multiple wins in the hat and smock contests at both The Atlanta Pet Fair and The All American. She is a talented pet groomer, but her expertise is best shown in her customer service skills. She is the owner of "A Doggie in the Window Grooming Studio" in Clinton, Iowa. Her shop motto is, "I can't groom them all...just the lucky ones!".
