Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews that got them there:

“I was so impressed by Terri’s knowledge of not only my breed of dog (health and hygienic needs/the proper Schnauzer cut, etc), but she was so in tune with her personality and catered to her temperament with gentle firmness. She even went as far as teaching me a thing or two about her behaviors and laying down the law with my little rescued family member.
This was certainly no pet-store-chain experience. [Terri provided me with] top-notch professionalism!!” – Scotty H.

Not Your Average Pet Groomer

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Terri Walsh, the owner of Calypso’s Pet Salon.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Terri about what makes Calypso’s Pet Salon unique compared to the many other pet groomers in Rhode Island. Terri told us that she grooms small animals, like rabbits and guinea pigs, as well as dogs and cats. Terri is a pro and has her hands in everything animal care, and she has a background in working for the local pet hospital and Petco, where she got hands-on exposure and education in all facets of pet care.

Terri is Pet CPR Certified. She specializes in senior animals, disabled animals and animals with behavioral issues. What puts Terri above the rest is the fact that she truly cares about all pets and all stages of their life. Terri never sugar coats the needs of the pets in her care, and she offers full care service to her clients, not just grooming.

Terry went on to tell us that Calypso’s Pet Salon is named after her first hound mix rescue dog, Calypso. When Calypso came into Terri’s life, she fell in love and knew she wanted a career in taking care of animals. Calypso is 10 and now has a cat little brother, Lawrence Chamberlain — Larry!

We also asked Terri about the Calypso’s Pet Salon mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Terri shared with us that her goal is to provide individualized care for each pet that comes in.

Building Success by Building Lifelong Relationships

Terri credits Calypso’s Pet Salon’s strong online reputation to her commitment to building lifelong relationships with her clients and their pets, and she said:

“I want to see puppies grow up!”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Calypso’s Pet Salon has grown through Facebook, their website, Instagram, word of mouth, mailers, foot traffic and flyers.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Terri’s expert advice for them:

“Network with fellow members in the industry. Share what you know, and learn from others. We all know something that others don’t.”

Congratulations to Calypso’s Pet Salon for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Terri, for taking the time to speak with us!
