Suzanne Grande
Grande Style Pet Grooming, Tampa, FL

Suzanne Grande has helped more than 250 dogs earn Westminster Kennel Club and American Kennel Club championship titles. With such a resume, it’s no surprise that clients drive as much as eight hours to her salon. The national certified master groomer has won more than a few awards herself, in grooming competitions and in the show ring — Amadeus and Vito (shown here) love to compete. Grande says competing helps her relax, “especially if I win!” Other sanity-savers include attending church and riding horses with her daughter, Katelyn, who works at the salon and recently began pet grooming school.
