Nora Risse, a groomer with 11 years’ experience and former police dog trainer, has opened Aunt Jac’s Mobil Paw Spa. The service features aroma therapy and a full spa experience for all breeds of Sarasota dogs. Lucky pups can enjoy a hydro-surge massage bath, blueberry facial, pedicures, fur styling and more. Her fully-equipped trailer allows her to travel to homes or places of business to groom dogs in a stress free environment that features several options of massage therapy.

Risse noted that one of her “client’s” favorite massages is the “rain drop technique.” Different organic oils applied to her fingertips are lightly drummed into the skin of the dog. It’s very relaxing and encourages the dog to fully enjoy the pampering treatment. Organic products are used exclusively.

She says, too, that grooming has significant health benefits. “Animals can’t tell you in words if they’re in pain. As I’m grooming, I can often find medical issues that can be addressed to heal.”
