Pictured on the new grooming table at Pets R Family 2 in Barriere, is local canine Willow, who by all appearances can vouch for Marilyn’s gentle but firm approach as she accommodates for the dog’s fears and anxieties. Willow is elderly and completely blind, but Marilyn has won her confidence through several previous appointments, and now the pooch greets her at grooming time with plenty of tail wags.

‘Pets R Family 2’ welcomes pet grooming to their Barriere store

By Elli Kohnert

Barriere’s pet supply store has a new service in-house. ‘Good Boy! Dog Grooming’ and ‘The Mutt Hutt’ are teaming up at ‘Pets R Family 2’ to offer dog grooming by appointment within the store.

Last Thursday, Nov. 7, groomer Marilyn Lutzke welcomed three of her clients into the new workplace.

Marilyn says she will be at the store on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and she can be reached to make an appointment by contacting her at 250-319-5662.

On the days that Marilyn is not available, Molly Baruta of ‘The Mutt Hut’ will be grooming at the pet store instead. Molly says she is excited to be able to bring this service to pet owners in Barriere, and notes that they don’t just groom small dogs, but bigger dogs as well.

Molly will be at the store on Tuesday and Fridays and can be reached to make an appointment by contacting her at 250-639-5436.
