The people behind our pet project.

You might say we’re a different breed of mobile groomers. One that’s committed to delivering comfort, convenience and a great experience for your pet. And for you!

Grooming a GoGo was founded by Portlander Kelly Rice. Inspired by a lifelong love of animals and her own positive experiences with mobile grooming, Kelly decided to start Grooming a GoGo.

Kelly attended Betty’s Pet Grooming School learning to groom all breeds of dogs. Then spent hundreds of hours training, as well as getting additional experience grooming pets for neighbors, friends, family, not to mention her own pooches Sierra (a Labrador Retriever), Quinn (an English Cream Retriever) and Buddy (a terrier mix).

Today, Kelly is delighted to treat pets to a fun spa day. She says her favorite part is watching newly-groomed pets show off for their owners!

  • My Shih-Tzu is a 20-month-old little boy who is very shy and a little fearful with some health issues, so I’m very careful when it comes to care providers. Kelly not only gave him the best haircut he’s ever had, but she was his best buddy by the end of the appointment - a true testament to her loving and gentle way…as well as her skill with the scissors.

  • Kelly did such a wonderful job grooming Sophie! My 3-year-old Shih-Tzu has a puppy cut with long ears and tail, making her appearance especially dependent on a good haircut. After seeing Kelly, she looks as adorable as ever and has the softest coat ever. Her feet were perfectly trimmed inbetween the pads, and nails cut to perfect length. I wish I could bring her to Kelly every week!
