Taria Avery fell in love...with her chocolate lab! She loved him so much she made him her namesake, he's simply "Avery." Avery quickly became a key member of the family, enjoying the best of everything, including road trips (in his personal seatbelt), country clubs, doggie daycares, play dates and spa treatments. However, after taking Avery to many groom shops, Taria quickly realized a higher level of care and professionalism was needed in the grooming industry.
She believed that since grooming is so essential to good health and wellness, it should be an enjoyable experience for the pet where each fur-kid is treated as an individual and catered to for their specific needs. And as a doting mother, anxiously waiting 6-8 hours for that phone call letting her know Avery was ready for pick up, Taria quickly realized the experience should be considerably less stressful and complicated for the pet parent. Thus, "Avery's Mobile Pet Spa" was born.
