Pat is the owner/operator of All 4 Paws. After spending over 30 years in sales Pat made the decision to open her own grooming shop. She has always loved dealing with the public and wanted a business where she could keep her own dogs with her while continuing to work with people. She loves spending time with her dogs Benny and Sam and a grooming shop provided that perfect opportunity. Not being a groomer herself she searched to find an experienced person who would provide the best possible care for all pets. That person is Kathy Hartley. Kathy started with All 4 Paws on the day it opened and now oversees a team of groomers and bathers that are the best in the industry.
Kathy attended VTI Pet Grooming School in 1988 and finished at the top of her class. She then returned to VTI and taught the grooming course and the specialty of hand-stripping. Kathy and her husband Charlie also opened Topper Grooming in Seagoville, TX. They successfully ran Topper Grooming and showed several of their dogs in dog shows throughout the country. They closed Topper Grooming in 1996 shortly before their oldest son was born. They have been married since 1986, have two teenage sons, and are devoted Christians. Kathy and Charlie are shown here with the newest addition to their family, Achilles.
