Dogs R Us

Joanne McDevitt

Joanne attended the Nash Academy Dog Grooming School in Lexington, KY in 1996.  After graduating, she apprenticed several years before buying and taking over Dogs R Us in 2000. She has built the business from just a few clients to several thousand.  She is proud of all the people who work with her including some who have been with her many years.  To her there is much joy in working with people who all love and care about dogs


Robyn Kruckeberg

Robyn began working in a groom shop in Pocatello, Idaho in 1989.  After  working several years to improve her skills, she opened her own shop and ran it for 10 years before moving to Mountain Home, Idaho.  There she opened Paws and Claws and ran it from 2002 until 2017.  We are very happy to have Robyn as a member of our groom team.  Her work is exceptional and she has a special way with hard to handle doggies.  We call her our "dog whisperer"

Miki Austin

Miki joined the Dogs R Us team right after Joanne bought the shop in 2000.  She had already been grooming for several years so now she has 20+ years experience.  She has many clients whose dogs she has groomed their whole lives and who absolutely love her.  Miki has a wonderful way with puppies and older dogs alike and is a very skillful groomer.

Becky and Jackie

We are also proud of out bathers.  They are very important to a beautiful groom!  They have  worked at Dogs R Us for years and understand what shampoos are best for your dog's coat and they use medicated shampoos to help soothe any skin irritations they see.   Not only are they experts at bathing and drying but they help us to hold and calm dogs when we need them to as we groom.
