Tattle Tails Dog Grooming relocates to Spring Grove area

Tattle Tails Dog Grooming recently relocated at 5598 Ambau Road near Spring Grove after being located for over a decade in a private home on West Market Street in York.
"I have found the perfect place to fit all my needs. We are now conveniently located with easy access off of State Routes 116 and 516," business owner and groomer Jordan Stauffer said,"My new location provides me the opportunity to still remain small and give personal attention to every dog, but with more space to do it in."
Stauffer owned and operated a highly successful dog grooming salon for 12 years at 2115 West Market St., in the basement of her home. In December Stauffer and her husband Kevin Stauffer purchased a 7 acre farmette on Ambau Road, just west of its intersection with Jefferson Road.
For the next two weeks after the settlement on their new home, Stauffer said, her husband worked tirelessly to completely renovate and reconstruct a tool shed and a tack room in the adjacent horse barn into a large charmingly appointed doggie salon.
"My husband did most of the work himself and boy did he do a fabulous job!" Stauffer declared,"Its so beautiful that I am a little afraid to get it dirty."
The pristine dog salon will be kept that way, Stauffer said, as she prides herself on being extremely clean and neat. A washer and dryer are located right in the grooming area, Stauffer said, so that each and every doggy client has fresh clean towels ready and waiting.
The new salon, which opened Jan. 6, is complete with a comfy'people' reception and waiting room with free Wi-Fi, a unique office area carved out of old barn wood, and a sparkling new grooming room with a top-of-the-line stainless steel doggy wash tub which has steps and an easy access, no stress opening for large breed dogs.
Right next to the office is a large and airy indoor kennel area with spacious separate quarters for dogs waiting to be groomed or to be picked up by their owners.

"My goal is to provide a casual stress-free environment with a spa-like atmosphere for the dogs being bathed and groomed," Stauffer said,"I play relaxing music and talk to them so the dogs feel comfortable and safe during their whole experience here."
Jordan Stauffer grew up near New Oxford and is the daughter of Idora and Shane Eisenhart. From the time she was a small child she knew that she wanted to work with animals, Stauffer said, and after graduating from New Oxford High School in 2001 she apprenticed with a dog groomer in Carlisle.
She has always been a big fan of dog shows, both as a spectator and in showing dogs as competitors, continually learning the fine art of expert dog grooming from the experts themselves.
After she'graduated' from her apprenticeship, Stauffer said, she opened her own practice plus worked with the locally well-known dog groomer Diane Redding, at Bath and Shave Boutique which was located in New Oxford at that time.
"She taught me a lot. She was great," Stauffer said of Redding,"I really learned a great deal from her."
At Tattle Tails she specializes in grooming and clipping all types of terriers, noting those breeds have specific styling needs which are sometimes overlooked or unknown by the department store type groomers. She is also quite adept at grooming all other breeds, Stauffer said, and works patiently with clients to find that perfect look.
One of her own dogs, Seamus, is a champion Kerry Blue Terrier which she co-owns with Margarey Good, who is a world renowned and highly successful dog show exhibitor.
Stauffer and her husband also own a 10-year-old Airedale Terrier which they do not show but who is an important and valued family member, Stauffer said.
Stauffer shows Seamus, and a Scottish Terrier owned by her father and mother, at up to 10 dog shows per year. Her mother, Idora, also helps with the dog handling and showing, Stauffer said, and was also the person who came up with Tattle Tales as a cute and memorable name for the business.
Seamus's grooming and quality handling by Stauffer has evidently gone quite well as attested by his many Champion ribbons and awards that hang proudly in the new salon.
The grooming salon is open by appointment and clients can either drop their dog off or wait in the reception area for the bathing and grooming to be complete.
It takes about two hours to bathe and groom a small dog, Stauffer said, and about three hours for a large dog. Specialty dog grooming shows may take longer, depending upon the type of dog and the owner's specific instructions.
In the near future Stauffer and her husband also hope to add high quality care horse boarding to their business. The barn attached to the doggie salon has six huge wood paneled horse stalls with safety bars, floor mats, heat lamps and a security camera system.
An extra large horse wash stall, a huge tack and hay area, plus five separate pastures, all with heated water supplies, complete the array which originally housed a thoroughbred foaling establishment, Stauffer said. IF YOU GO:
