Teri, owner

Teri has been the owner of Tier Haus since 2015. She has managed to take a tiny grooming salon and turn it into a staple of the west side of Cincinnati. Her grooming experience is extensive and goes back to 2005. She is fluent in breed standard trims and has groomed many show dogs, and excels in a terrier breed standard trim, although she is experienced in all breed standard trims. She also enjoys creative grooming like asian fusion style or anything fun and funky you can think of. She has very limited availability for grooming appointments and she does book up quickly. 

Teri has been an avid dog lover all her life and all her time revolves around dogs. When not at Tier Haus, you'll find her spending time with her English Bulldogs that she raises, who are also often greeting you from behind the Tier Haus desk! She also spends a great deal of her time volunteering for animal rescues which she has done since she was 16. You'll find her at every charity event that Tier Haus raises money for. She also established a pay-it-forward initiative and special events in Cincinnati in her spare time. It always been a passion of hers to spend all her time with animals, so Tier Haus is a dream come true.
