About

As animal lovers & owners, we understand how difficult it is to leave your pet’s care in someone else’s hands.

Mutt Makeovers was established in 2008 and is locally owned and operated by Danielle McLean-German, who has an affinity with animals.

Introducing your pet professional:

As a pet stylist: This professional, private grooming salon is the perfect setting for a calm and relaxing atmosphere; located on a quiet, paved country road away from the hustle and bustle of down town.

An unapologetic animal lover, Danielle is a highly trained and skilled artisan who works diligently to provide your pet with a positive, gentle and personal grooming experience. By choosing Mutt Makeovers for your grooming and pet’s needs, you can feel confident that your pet is cared for by a professional with both extensive knowledge and experience. She is a lifelong student personally committed to ever expanding her skills, incorporating state of the art equipment and using only the best quality products.

Not only does she have over 10 years of compassionate care and experience in grooming small to large (240Lb+) dogs, she began working in veterinary clinics as a Certified Veterinary Assistant, and trained in pet first aid. She also worked in pet stores where she managed the dog and cat department specializing in nutrition. She has exceedingly knowledge specializing in dermatological issues. All of her professional products are holistic and all naturally made. She offers oil treatments and specially hand-made soaps for dogs with skin issues, but also aid in skunk odour removal that are sent to her from California, where they have been produced by a fellow OES owner with experience in this area and SA. She stands by her products, as  does the Pasadena, California Dermatology clinic. Mutt Makeovers now holds exclusive rights to these products, not available in any other local shop.

Also specializing from de-shedding treatments to the famous requested ”puppy cut”, she has worked with many dogs with special needs and is well qualified to have handled Diabetics (a special place in her heart being a T1D herself), Cushings, blind, deaf, Addison’s, epileptics, rare diseases such as Hepatopathies/Copper Storage Disease, behavioural/aggression problems and a soft spot for seniors.

Mutt Makeovers now has over 600 clients and upholds a full schedule that can cause up to a two month waiting period for a grooming reservation. Your pet receives a private one on one grooming appointment (more fun, less bark), as we work with one family at a time where they are groomed start to finish in a stress-free environment. It is highly recommended that you pre book your appointment before you leave so you can ensure you can get regular grooming when needed.

Introducing your pet professional:

As a Nutritionist:

In 2017, an 8 month long battle that finally led to a rare diagnosis (officially a Hepatopathy with a secondary copper toxicity disease: micronodular hyperplasia, dissecting fibrosis and cirrhosis) of her “heart dog” – Old English Sheepdog, Riggs, forced her to focus towards her passion in nutrition. Danielle was told many things, from “we don’t know”, “we can’t help you,” to “figure it out,”. Ultimately she had no choice but to do the education herself as time was of the essence for Riggs’ health. Danielle enrolled in a Canine Nutrition program at the Academy of Natural Health Sciences in the United States.

“We all want one thing for our pets, and that’s for them to live long, healthy lives. While there is much criticism about online education, I can assure you, this is a thorough and exhaustive program. I am well versed in animal health and nutrition for over ten years; we do the best we can with what we can.”

Due to the rarity of Riggs’ issues, with the lack of support, help, and knowledge available nor received with her own dog he incurred with his rare diagnosis and former issues, combined with Danielle’s extreme interest, and never giving up on him, going back to school was a no brainer (although scary). “You can’t fulfill your passion in your comfort zone, so seize every opportunity, and this has been the largest opportunity of my career.”   While still grooming full time, she completed the first two portions of the C.P.N. program, receiving her Canine Nutrition and Feline Nutrition Certificates. Next she will complete the clinical practicum. So far this education has helped her personally with understanding their concerns and it is her hope that she can help others just as much in the future, if not more.

Riggs has been through a lot, and is now 11 years old as of December of 2019 and doing extremely well!

“The things we are passionate about are not random, they are our calling – and animals have always been my biggest teacher.

It’s a beautiful thing when career and passion come together. Life is a journey with problems to solve and lessons to learn, and that is what I am doing, and how great that it all started with a fuzzy Sheepdog by my side. Every part of an animal speaks a great language — listen. So trust your journey, even when you don’t understand it. It will lead to great things.

As a lifelong student personally committed to ever expanding my expertise,  I believe that continuing education is of the utmost importance in one’s career,  not only to reinforce the knowledge already gained, but especially in the fast-paced changing field of pet nutrition. It is of particular importance to stay current, as well as an opportunity for advancement. So far, I uphold CE as a member of the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies; CE through RAHU, a Member of the Pet Food Consumer Association; Canine Nutrition: Academy of Natural Health Sciences, Feline Nutrition: Academy of Natural Health Sciences, Clinical Pet Nutritionist Pending; with a large interest particularly focusing on integrative health and homeopathic modalities.”

It is our goal to offer individualized Nutritional Consultations in 2020. Please follow our Facebook Page and Website for current updates as well as continuing education for latest certifications in the pet industry to serve you higher.
