about us

Gina Hanks is Certified under the National Dog Groomers Association of America as a Master Groomer. She has held this title since 2013. Her grooming career started back in 2008 when she was first introduced to the trade. Working as a shop assistant, then later as a full time groomer. She then went on to master her skill under the influence of Nancy Han NCMG, and Tomoko Hirokawa NCMG. It is under these certifiers where she developed her keen eye for the artistic creation that her grooming has become. 

Gina lives in Vallejo, California but this does not limit her services. Traveling throughout the bay area and  even across state lines, people seek out her art. She continues to develop herself as an artisan groomer furthering her education in every way. Participating in grooming competitions held in Las Vegas and Pasadena, collaborating with fellow tradesmen for inspiration, and learning new trend techniques. At this time Gina is only servicing small breed dogs, under 30 lbs.

— Jacquelin K.






Full service groom

Includes bathing with cleansing shampoo and a complimentary blueberry facial, brush out, nail clipping, ear cleaning and breed specific or artistically styled hair cut.  

Ear hair removal

Certain breeds require the removal of excess hair in the ear canal. A talc powder is squeezed into the ear to assist with drying the canal and makes for easy gripping to remove excess hair. This is done to allow the ear canal to breathe as air is able to more easily circulate. It is important that you consult with a vet before and after this service is done as it can cause infection if not addressed properly.

We drive over 40 miles just to have our Maltese Shih Tzu mix puppy, Bailey, groomed by Gina and she does an awesome job everytime! You can tell she really cares about her clients.

Gina is amazing. Our dogs use to be stressed about going to the groomer, but now they love Gina, and they always get a lot of compliments on their cuts every time. She really does do some magic with the scissors.
