Certified AKC Safety Groomers
Owner & Groomer
I attended the Animal Arts Academy in 2000 and became a Certified Professional Groomer. I received my Bachelor of Science from Purdue University in 1992. In 2013, I earned an Associate Degree in Veterinary Technology from Harrison College where I graduated with honors. I am now a Registered Veterinary Technician in the State of Indiana. I am also a member and certified with National Dog Groomers of America and currently working towards my Master Groomer Certification. I believe in providing personalized service for our customers in order to address each pets’ individual needs.

Alexis has been a 10 year 4-H member with her horses, goats, chickens, and rabbits. Her hobbies include: kayaking, painting, and binge watching Netflix with her dog.
Groomer & Manager at E. Davis Dr. Location
Brenna Hall has been working at Dapper Dog since November of 2011. She started as part time kennel staff, worked her way up to office manager, and is now grooming full time. She has her own baby, a yorkie named Brystol, who comes to work with her mom every day. She plans to someday open her own groom shop.
Carol has been with us for a little while now, and has quickly adopted the staff as her own family. She is greatly respected and loved by everyone she meets, including the four-legged ones. She loves to bake and spend time with her grandkids and great-grandkids. She has a 7-year-old bichon mix (Snowball). She loves working and playing with the dogs and cats that come into Dapper Dog. Carol graces the staff and clients at both locations with her presence and we couldn’t be happier to have her.
Hi, my name is Laynie Mahurin. I graduated from Terre Haute South High School in 2017. I have always loved all animals but mostly dogs. I share my home with my senior dog, Lyric. I’ve been grooming for over two years now and learn more and more everyday. I’ve received my S.A.F.E. groomer certificate in August 2019. I enjoy my job as a groomer and couldn’t see myself doing anything else. I love it!
Jessica Corenflos is a senior at Terre Haute North Vigo High School. Her goal is to one day become a veterinarian. She is learning a lot about dogs working at Dapper Dog. Jessica enjoys playing with all of the dogs and taking great care of them.
