Making pups feel good at grooming new spot


SCHERTZ — At Lone Star Dog Grooming, all canines are welcome, say owners Melissa and Timothy Gilmore.

Not only do they know a thing or two about dogs, but they also own three. Putting that know-how into practice, the couple recently opened Lone Star Dog Grooming in a 1,500-square-foot space at 1420 Schertz Parkway, Suite160.

Debuting a new business is always a challenge, but that’s nothing new for the Gilmore family.

After battling thyroid cancer and rearing children, now adults, Melissa Gilmore and her husband adopted two more ages 9 and 10 years old.

“I was raised a military brat in Panama, Fort Benning, Georgia, and Fort Campbell, Kentucky, after which I was a vet-tech and a military spouse for 15 years,” she said. “I worked in the pet clinic in Mannheim, Germany, when my husband was stationed there, and then I was the assistant manager and ran the pet clinic at Fort Sam Houston for 7 1/2 years.”

The pet spa, employing four, serves some 10 to 15 dogs daily.

Up-to-date rabies shots are necessary; fleas they can handle, but its better if the dog comes without any insect tagalongs.

“Any breed deserves a fair shake. It’s all (in) how you treat them,” Gilmore said. “Every pup deserves to feel good.”

For grooming, appointments are required, but for nail trims, walk-ins are fine. Specialty cuts are by request.

No cats, for now.

“My husband is retired as the owner/operator of a trucking company. We decided to set up this business for our daughter, Ashley, so she could generate her own income,” Gilmore said.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
