    Sarah O'Halloran

    Sarah is originally from England and learned to groom dogs from her mother, who was also a groomer. She has been involved with animals all her life. She rides & trains horses, and enjoys side saddle riding and events. Her husband, Pete is a Veterinarian & co-owner of Monocacy Equine Veterinary Associates.

    From Sarah..... "I enjoy interacting with the animals and feel very confident handling them.  I love watching the professional dog shows, especially, noticing the proper trim and try to emulate and adapt those haircuts to your dog, giving a practical but attractive haircut. Perhaps because of my English background, I have always taken a keen interest in the different breeds of dog. I believe I have a very good idea of the correct clip for most breeds."
