Whiskers Nails & Puppy Dog Tails got its start in 2005. It was the fulfillment of a life-long dream to provide celebrity-quality grooming and boarding for pet owners. Now, we’re thrilled to offer high-quality pet supplies, full-service grooming—including a hydro spa day—and luxury overnight boarding for dogs and cats of all breeds and sizes!
We love pets, and it shows in everything we do. Our facility has an A+ BBB Rating and was voted by The Star as “The Best of Cleveland County” in 2016. We are proud to have been your premier pet spa and retreat for over eleven years.
After working as a vet technician for Gaston Vet Hospital for twenty-five years, Leanna Fraser, our owner and stylist, dreamed of doing something different. She wanted to open a pet salon and spa that would offer celebrity-style treatments for your furry best friend. So, she decided to buy the business and the rest is history.
Leanna is a member of the board of the Cleveland County Humane Society and does fundraisers and grooming for the well being of all animals. Personally, she has a bird named Goose, a rescue from CCAC named Snootie, a rescue Jack Russell named Sunday, a rescue Basset named Titus, a rescue Blue Tick named RIP, and a rescue cat named Poot.
Amber is Leanna’s daughter. She attended cosmetology at Carolina Academy, a Paul Mitchell school, and later decided that she wanted to work with animals instead of people. For almost seven years, she has worked for Whiskers, providing exceptional grooming services for all breeds. Amber truly found her passion and is now beginning to explore creative design and plans on eventually competing in grooming competitions. Amber uses Pet Head and the Paul Mitchell Pet line in all of her grooming services. She is the proud mother of an eight-month-old Blue Heeler named Spy and a three-year-old Dachshund named Roxy Kay.
