Each mobile pet grooming unit is custom designed with air conditioning, heat, electricity, and water, and relies on no outside electrical or water hookups. The van’s spacious interior helps pets maneuver easily and enhances the groomer’s ability to ensure all of the pet’s needs are met.

Worlds 10 Best Franchises To Open in 2020

Our Team

Mark Shaffer – Owner

Mark Shaffer APM NorthWest Arkansas

Mark is a lifelong pet lover. He spent most of his career with Walmart and Sam’s Club as a Store Manager, Regional HR Manager, Director and Senior Director in both HR and Operations. He also worked with another Global Company, MoneyGram International, as a Director before deciding to apply the learnings of his 30+ year career into his own business.

Mobile services of all types are growing in this day and age, and having experienced the challenges of getting his pet(s) to the groomer over the years, Mark felt that offering a Mobile alternative to traditional grooming would be of great interest in his community.
The concept that pets could avoid the stress of being dropped at a traditional groomer, where they would be in a cage for some portion of their appointment, surrounded by other anxious pets awaiting their turns and handled by multiple people throughout the process of their appointment was extremely appealing. Not to mention the convenience for the Pet Parent of not having to manage dropping off and picking up your pet around an already busy schedule.

At Aussie Pet Mobile, your pet receives one on one care, from beginning to end, at your home, in your driveway. They are never caged and never around other pets. We’ve observed that generally, pets cared for in this way are far less anxious and happier with the grooming process.

So, beginning July 24, 2019 Aussie Pet Mobile began operations in Northwest Arkansas. Thanks to a fantastic team of pet stylists who are passionate about their craft, and wonderful customers all over NWA, our business has been growing steadily since day one – even with all of the new challenges we’re learning to manage since Covid 19.

We hope you’ll consider us for your pet’s grooming needs. We would love to earn your business.

Emily – Lead Stylist

Emily

Aussie Pet Mobile of Northwest Arkansas is extremely happy to welcome Emily as our first lead grooming professional. Emily has been grooming since May of 2015, but has been working with animals since 2008. She has groomed in a corporate salon as well as private salons before moving on to Aussie Pet Mobile for a calmer environment for the animals being groomed. She takes pride in her grooms believing in quality over quantity and constantly learning new styles of grooming. She is the dog mom of two Blue Heelers and a cat mom of a Maine Coon, a Ragdoll mix and a Short Hair cat. Before grooming she was a dog trainer for three years and a pet sitter for five. She has always had a passion for animals and was certified in 2015 for animal care and control. She strives to make the grooming experience as stress-free and positive as possible treating every pet like they were her own. She believes it is a must to have a great deal of patience, trust and the ability to read dogs’ body language in order to achieve her goals of making this the best experience for your pet.

Darrion – Pet Stylist

Darrion – Pet Stylist
Darrion has been grooming since October of 2014 and became fully certified in 2015. She worked in a corporate salon for 4 years and took a short break from grooming before joining our Aussie Pet Mobile Team in October 2020. She is a cat mom of a Tortoiseshell Cat named Rose and a Tuxedo Cat named Jack. She initially began her interest in grooming at the age of 9 after watching stylists through a window when her mom would bring their dogs to get groomed. She grew up with a wide diversity of animals such as snakes, birds, cats, various breeds of dogs, pigs, and chinchillas, making her extremely versatile with pets and knowledgeable about different dog breeds. She is an artist at heart and thought grooming would be a career where she could express her creativity every day. She knows that animals feed off of negativity and stress, so she strives to make every pet’s experience as positive and relaxing as possible. Your pets will receive quality one-on-one care where they are her entire focus from the moment she arrives to your house. Darrion believes that grooming is a job you can do only if you have patience, positive energy, and truly love animals. We couldn’t be happier to have her as part of our team.
