Buffalo Center dogs can walk in fashion thanks to Wiggle Butts Dog Grooming
26 Oct 2023
One Buffalo Center resident proves you CAN have your cake and eat it too.
Recognizing the need for dog groomers in the area, Main took the leap and started her business a year ago.
“I’m fear-free certified, so I know all these tips and tricks to help keep dogs calm,” Main said. “I just wanted a place where dogs aren’t super anxious to get their hair groomed.”
Main attended the vet tech program at Iowa Lakes Community College in Emmetsburg, IA. During her time there, she decided to pursue dog grooming, a profession she quickly fell in love with. She graduated in the spring of 2022 and opened her business shortly after.
Main uses the skills acquired through her position as a vet tech at the Forest City Veterinary Clinic to help keep the dogs calm, handle various situations and recommend when an owner should take their pet to the vet.
She enjoys the challenge and creative opportunities presented with dog grooming. Main has participated in several dog grooming competitions, allowing her to show off her skills. Her favorite design she has done was at a competition with the theme “Guy Fieri,” where she decked out the dog in flames.
“I enjoy being a vet tech, but with dog grooming, I like how I can still have my creative side out,” said Main. “It’s a lot of fun making all of these cool shapes.”
Main said the business name came to her after buying a sign for her pooch, Josie, that read “Beware of the wiggle butt.” She suggested “Wiggle Butts Dog Grooming” to her grooming instructor, who told her it was the perfect name.
Main dreams of one day living on a farm and owning a pet boarding facility, but for now, she is happily living the best of both worlds.
“My bosses and coworkers are awesome; they let me take this time off so I can still groom,” said Main.
