Christy, the owner of Diamondz Pet Spa, has been in the animal industry for over 10 years now. She began as a kennel attendant at a local grooming shop in Glendale, and in a little over a year, worked her way up to groomer. After working part-time in the evenings as a mobile groomer, Mike and Carrie Marble, the owners of Bark N Scratch Outpost, offered to build Christy a grooming shop of her own. After years of grooming all over town, she opened her own pet salon on the Bark N Scratch premises. Diamondz Pet Spa was officially open for business on July 1st, 2008.
Diamondz Pet Spa owes its name to a rambunctious Rottweiler named Diamond. Diamond was introduced to Christy in 1999 when Diamond was just a six-week-old pup. At age 11, Diamond lost her battle to cancer. Why the "z" at the end you ask? Well, you would have to check with Christy's daughter for confirmation, but there's good chance it may have something to do with her love for Bratz Dollz when she was younger.
One of Christy's current fur kids at home includes an 8-year-old female Shih Tzu, Chloe. Chloe was adopted from another family member 3 years ago. Moose is Christy's 8-year-old male, grey tiger striped tabby cat. Moose was adopted by Morgan 4 years ago from a local cat rescue. Sherlock is Christy's 3-year-old male orange tabby cat who came from a horse barn of one of Christy's friends. After her friend Amber spent 2 weeks nursing him back to health, Christy adopted him.
