Liz Edmond, MGBS


Liz is the owner and founder of Jinx Merlot Pet Grooming.  She has been a Certified Pet Groomer for 18 years starting at just 17 years old at a local pet store.  She knew she wanted to work with animals but had no idea where that one decision of becoming a bather would take her.  It has become a lifelong passion to make sure dogs and cats have the most comforting grooming experience they can have.  She has had countless hours of training in grooming.  She has taken certification courses online and attended countless hours of education at different grooming conventions to stay up to date.  She received her diploma from Whole Pet Academy as an MGBS (Master Groomer Behavior Specialist) studying dog behavior and different training techniques to ensure your pet has the most relaxing experience they can have.  She has taken Iv San Bernard esthetician courses and is in the process of becoming a Certified Pet Esthetician.  She has dedicated her life to expanding her knowledge on grooming, dog behavior, and skin/coat health with the result being her salon, Jinx Merlot Pet Grooming.  We use the most innovative technology and techniques to create a safe and loving environment for your pet.  You can follow Liz and the team on Facebook at Jinx Merlot Pet Grooming, on Instagram @jinxmerlotllc, and on TikTok @jinxmerlot.

"I highly recommend Liz and Jinx Merlot Pet Grooming. Liz takes such great care of my fur babies and has since they were 10 weeks old.  She truly loves animals and is so accommodating and gracious with their different personalities.  She is such a blessing and we are so thankful for her!"

"Liz Edmond is one of the most kind, professional and caring people I know. My Sugar adores her, would never go to anyone else."

"Absolutely the most wonderful groomer on the planet! She genuinely loves all pets and does everything to make sure they feel safe while being groomed. She goes above and beyond for my pups and I'll follow her to the edge of the earth!"

Haley Shindoll

Groomer in Training

Haley got her start in the pet care world at a boarding facility where she attended Paragon Grooming School.  She is passionate about the science and the “why” behind how we take care of our pets’ skin and coat, so naturally she found her way to Jinx Merlot where she is currently working on becoming a Certified Canine Esthetician.  Haley is also a full-time pet parent, so when she isn’t found studying, she is usually running with her pups, or playing with her cats and reptiles!  Haley enjoys volunteering at local shelters to help dogs who are looking for a new family.  Ask her what she enjoys most about animal-kind and she’ll tell you “I grew up idolizing Corwin, Irwin, and the Kratts, so no matter where I go in life, I am certain that I will end up always deeply involved in the welfare of peoples’ pets and wildlife alike!"  Haley loves sharing her work with dogs on her Instagram!  You can join her on Instagram @haleysdiscodoggies for a groovy time!

Kayla knew since she was young that she wanted to work with and help animals.  The opportunity to work with them presented itself to her when she got a position as a bather in a corporate salon setting.  There she was able to learn how to bathe and safely handle dogs.  She then took a job opportunity at a smaller, more personal salon where she was able to learn more about grooming and to become Fear Free Certified.  This certification allowed her to learn different ways to calm and guide a fearful dog through the grooming process.  She craved more training so in July of 2023, she came to study here at Jinx Merlot, mentoring under Liz.  She is now our bather, learning all about the skin and coat, and the different techniques she didn't have the opportunity to learn elsewhere.  She will soon move into a groomer-in-training so that she can follow her passion for grooming!  You can find her on Instagram @doggroomerkiwi to see pictures of your fur babies!

Bath Tech


Our Latest Technology!

Jinx Merlot has invested in a Thera-Clean Microbubbles machine!  This machine is designed to take your bath to the next level.  Normal baths clean the surface of the skin, but this machine allows the water to penetrate deep into the pore to give a deeper clean than ever before.

The microbubbles used in this machine are smaller than a red blood cell, travel into the pore and pop using negative ion energy to remove all of the dirt and build up from inside the dog's pore.  It also helps to bring blood circulation back to different areas of the body which can sometimes improve mobility and give dogs who have arthritis some relief.

The cleaning power of the Thera-Clean is versatile, from doing a basic deep clean, providing a luxurious spa experience for healthy skin, to helping with allergies, to helping heal ear infections, atopic dermatitis, deep secondary infections, yeast infections, and so much more!

This machine combined with our IV San Bernard products give another meaning to healthy skin and coat. For more information, visit our Info page by CLICKING HERE.
