“Jesi is the best.”

“I enrolled in a ‘Cooperative Care’ class, learning how to desensitize my rescue for toe nail trims since he was traumatized at my vet.  Jesi is the best. She shows us patience is the key to helping our dogs. She has helped Buster come a long way since his first evaluation.  I would recommend her for grooming and any classes she is teaching. We love her!”

“She truly cares about each and every animal that enters her business.”

“I have been taking my dogs to her since moving to NC in 2011. She truly cares about each and every animal that enters her business. Jesi has formed a special bond with each of my pups and they get so excited to go see her. She is a very kind and caring individual and puts the animals’ needs first. Highly recommend her. Astrid actually went to her puppy training class in 2015 and she is extremely knowledgeable with respect to behavior and personalities of the dogs.”

“…by far the best grooming place in the area.”

“Howling Moon is by far the best grooming place in the area. My dog is very reactive and Jesi worked with her (and I) on desensitization techniques. After just 1 session my dog was so much better and tolerated grooming. Jesi also has been such a great resource on dog training and always takes time to listen and give feedback. We recently moved 30 minutes away but driving back for my dog’s grooming appointments is definitely worth the time!”

“Without her guidance and support, we would never have made the progress that we have.”

“Jesi has been working with me and my three-year old lab mix for about a year. Of all the animal professionals I have worked with, she is by far the most helpful, knowledgeable, and supportive. She has helped us overcome various anxieties and behavioral issues, and we continue to consult with her despite moving to NYC. Without her guidance and support, we would never have made the progress that we have. I highly and enthusiastically recommend Jesi to anyone looking for grooming and training!”
