About The Owner Laura Solin
I’ll start by saying that I’ve been an animal lover and caretaker my whole life! When I was young, I would go around selling “flowers” (actually weeds) to the neighbors to help raise funds for the local animal shelter. While in high school, I was active in the local horse 4-H club and the Triple-R riding club.
COLLEGE & POST-GRADUATE DAYS
After high school, I attended UW-River Falls where I received my bachelor’s degree in equine science. From there, I worked on a few horse farms but realized I liked having horses as a hobby versus having to work on horse farms.
GETTING INTO GROOMING
Fortunately, while interning at two pet grooming salons, I found that my true calling was pet grooming. In 2013, I opened my own salon in Antigo. Ever since I first opened the doors, my customers have all been so nice and welcoming!
Today, I live on a small hobby farm in Deerbrook with my fiancé, Travis. We are joined by three dogs (Hannah, Ebony, and Fergie), five cats (Millie, Pearl, Lailah, Frankie and Pants), five horses (Skip, Razz, Cooper, Coupe, and Leggz), one goat (Delilah), and a pot-belly pig (Tilly). In my free time I’ve taken to and enjoy riding and showing my horses.
