Message From Our Owner
Hello, my name is Mary Hermes. I am the proud owner of Blue Quail VIP Pet Services. My passion for animals started at a very young age when I used to play with our family collie, Laddie. I was only four years old, but my mom told me our collie saved my life when I fell into the pool. I believe my deep connection with animals began after that.
My mom raised Scottish terriers for a few years in California. Then, we moved to South Chicago for the next 15 years. My mom got into Maltese and gave me one for a Christmas present. I trained Sir Frederick to his CD title in obedience during our 4H classes. Our leader showed rough collies. Seeing all those trophies and ribbons on her wall, I got bitten by the show bug. I knew, then, that someday I would be doing that.
My first summer job was bathing Afghan hounds at a famous show kennel where I learned a lot. Those dogs were groomed to perfection and beauty.
After college, I moved to Fort Myers, Florida. I got my first Saluki to show and an Italian Greyhound.My mentors were Josie Mitchell of Giovanni IG,s, Arlene Czech of Coquina Papillons and Mary Lou LaValley (LaMar poodles). I showed and bred Caloosa Papillons for 25 years, Now I breed Caloosa toy/tiny Poodles as a hobby.At age 20 I saw an ad in the paper for a dog bather, so I applied for a job at Phyllis Poodle Boutique... Phyllis (my mentor and second mom) took me under her wing and taught me everything about grooming dogs. I worked with her for eight years.
In 1990, I bought Phyllis Poodle Boutique, dropped the name Phyllis, and expanded twice to a very nice, busy, clean, quiet business. I sold my business after 27 years to my groomer Jazare Alvarez who shows and breeds standard poodles.Many of my old clients still get in touch with me through Facebook and a few have stayed at my home here in Inscription Canyon, Prescott, Arizona.
Aside from the animals that were already mentioned, I also have owned/showed/bred Arabians and mini horses, devon rex cats and soon russian blues.. As I have more than 30 years of experience as a master groomer and dog exhibitor, I know what it takes to give your beloved pet the devoted care and responsible supervision he or she is entitled to. My past and current hobbies include:
