Meet The Professionals behind that Beautiful Hair Cut!
Good Dog Hotel and Spa has 3 full-time groomers: Marie, Veronique and Delbert! We couldn’t be prouder of the hard work and dedication they bring to the table every day. Read on to learn all about them!
Hi! My name is Marie!I am 30 years old, married and have a 3 year old daughter. I have been a professional groomer for 4 years now. I went to Animal Arts Academy to be taught this amazing trade of grooming arts by a Certified Master Grooming. I chose this career because I have always loved working with animals and have 3 dogs of my own. I started out working in Veterinary Hospitals and have had a lot of experience in the different areas such as kennel, reception, assisting, and now I am doing grooming! Some dogs can be very challenging but I have found that by making the dogs look better they seem to feel better which makes me realize that there is nothing else in the world that I would rather be doing! The most important thing is working for a Company that truly takes special care of your dogs as if they were our own!

Hi, I’m Veronique, but you can call me V!
Hi! My name is Veronique Brown. I was born in Belgium and moved to the United States five days after my 18th birthday. I’ve loved animals since I was a baby and grew up with cats and dogs in harmony. When I got my dog Simba in 2007, he changed my life. He’s the first dog I owned as an adult and he inspired me to want to work with animals, so when I moved to Indy, I did just that. After working the Good Dog front desk, I finished Grooming School in 2011 and now work alongside Delbert and Marie. I love working at Good Dog, and I love making sure every pup leaves looking and feeling beautiful! Seeing our furry clients every day makes me truly happy!
Hi! My name is Delbert Duncan!
I am one of the Certified Groomers here at Good Dog Hotel and Spa. I have professionally been in the dog business for over 25 years. I was owner-operator of my own boarding and grooming salon for 16 years. I also professionally showed dogs for 25 years in conformation and obedience. I specialized in Rottweilers, Australian Shepard’s, Miniature Schnauzers and other breeds from time to time. I have put many AKC Championships and Obedience Titles to credit my accomplishments in the dog world. I personally trained every dog that I titled. During my time as an owner-operator of a grooming facility I personally trained several groomers who have become their own stars in the dog world. I also taught conformation classes for several years and many of those students have gone on to be professional handlers or owner handlers and have achieved many AKC titles themselves. Good Dog and I were a perfect fit. Their standards and goals mirror mine, the finest quality grooming and supplies along with their exceptional care and kindness to the dogs and of course the people too.
Thank you for taking the time to read all about me!
