Always Furtastic Dog Grooming is opening September 1st at 25 Cortland Street, Marathon, NY.

I’m Alexandra Kinter, owner and groomer at Always Furtastic. I got into dog grooming in a most unexpected way. I went to Broome-Tioga Boces to learn about veterinarian technician career.  Hands-on course work included working in the cattery, dog kennels, and dog grooming.

When I went into the grooming section, my teachers saw something in me that I didn’t. I was called into their office and asked if I had any interest in majoring in dog grooming. It never crossed my mind, but I thought I would try it.

Over the next two years, the dogs and grooming really grew on me. I loved it! After graduating with top honors from the program, and with the highest grade in my class; I started my first grooming job for the summer before I went off to college to get my vet tech degree.

While in college, I kept working on weekends with different groomers where I really learned and gained more experience and talent. I worked for a lady for a while where she really taught me to groom to the best of my ability and pushed me to my full potential.

Sadly I left her and took some time off for some medical issues. After that I had a beautiful daughter. My family is settled and I was ready to go back to work. With my dad as my partner — I am very excited to live my dream and have my own grooming business.

We have been working very hard at the 25 Cortland Street in Marathon so we can open the doors on September 1st and not only share my passion for dogs and grooming — but to provide you with a warm -friendly place to have your pet groomed at a very competitive price. We’ll keep your pups looking FUR-tastic!
