GURJIT DRAKE – CEO AND OWNER
It took a country wide road trip in 2016 to convince Gurj that Utah was the place to set up shop.
Combining her love for the United States, the great outdoors and Man’s best friend, she decided to live the American Dream and Arnie’s Pawfect Grooms was born!
City & Guilds Qualified with over five years of experience grooming all manner of breeds, Gurj believes firmly in the health and well-being of all dogs. She believes in positive reinforcement, enthusiasm, patience and a calm atmosphere goes a long way to a pawfect groom!
In her spare time, Gurj can often be found raising money for less fortunate dogs, donating to animal shelters and organising dog grooming seminars. She has also continued her education by qualifying as a teaching assistant and renews her Dog CPR training every 3 years.
