Connie and Carsen

Here at Wags to Riches, we pride ourselves in unique, safe and personal grooming. We are locally owned and operated and cater to your pets’ specific needs. Wags to Riches is a cage-free environment that allows your dog to be pampered without the stress and anxiety of a traditional dog grooming salon.

Who We Are

Wags to Riches was started six years ago by Connie Bowen in her home’s garage after 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry. She then obtained her Grooming Certificate and spent one year in a traditional pet salon. After seeing the stress and anxiety pets experienced after hours in a cage surrounded by multiple dogs, she came up with her own vision of how she would want a salon ran. This lead to the beginning of Wags to Riches’ cage & crate free philosophy where pets are groomed straight through to completion and are picked up by the owners as soon as they are finished.

Soon after clients began to realize that their pets were calmer and content upon pick up, the need for another groomer was becoming necessary. Her daughter, Carsen Bowen was working for a local vet when she decided to join Connie on her grooming endeavor. After three years as a veterinary assistant, Carsen joined her, and both continue to utilize their experience and passion for beautifying peoples’ pets in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

Our Mission

Our goal at Wags to Riches is to provide a unique and all-inclusive spa experience in a safe, stress & anxiety free facility. All our groomers are greatly experienced in working with different breeds, temperaments, techniques, and styles. Safety is our number one priority above all, for the pets and staff. We set ourselves to ambitious standards and aim to provide an above and beyond experience for the client and their fur children.

Testimonials

Don't just take it from us, here's a few of our over 100 five-star reviews:

“Just returned from our first visit. My goldendoodle got the best cut she has ever had. I appreciated the tour of the facility to understand how she would be treated throughout the service, as well as the detailed communication afterward the service was finished. Faster service and better communication than other experiences that I’ve had. This is our new groomer!”

“Today was my first visit to this groomer, I have 2 Yorkies and just moved to the area. It was great!!! The ladies were so welcoming, showed my husband and I around and made the boys feel at home. They did a great job and I loved the fact that there are no crates or cages. My furbabies were not at all traumatized, seemed very happy. We will definitely be back!”

“We LOVE Wags to Riches!!! I love the fact that they do not use crates at all, instead my dog is able to run around and play all while waiting on me to come pick her up. They do a great job and are super friendly, I highly recommend them!!”
