Hi, my name is Paul Mendoza. I graduated from Cal-A-Hide dog grooming school in Chico, CA in the summer of 2006 completing a 600 hour course. My instructor, Carol Hill, had over 40 years of experience with show grooming and breeding. I chose her classes because she only taught 3 students at a time in her grooming salon, which gave me every opportunity to answer any questions that I had, and I had a lot and I learned a lot.

Here at Camp Rawhidewe offer specialized grooming. Unlike most other grooming shops we do not take more than 4 dogs per day, giving us a chance to slow down and take our time. Most dogs handle the grooming process very well, however there are some that do not and that's where we come in offering a more relaxed day for your pet.

Also at Camp Rawhide we are now offering something no groomer has done before and that is, for an extra cost you can sit in during the entire grooming process giving you the chance to learn to groom your dog yourself! I would like to teach people what it is that we as groomers do to make your dog look great.
