About Melissa Francisco

  • Melissa Francisco is an award wining groomer and the owner of TransFURmations Mobile Pet Spa located in upstate New York. She began her grooming career in 1995 while attending college and found that grooming was her true calling. During her career she ran salons for a corporate store, a veterinarian, a privately owned salon, and now her own mobile. Her passion for animals has led to a career she truly loves. She is a member of the Professional Cat Groomers Association of America and enjoys her kitty clients as much as her canine ones.

She is a wife and mother of two young children and pet parent of four dogs and two cats.

I love your blog and your ability to write an informed and logical article is a rare gift. Thank you!


Hi Melissa,

Great article, I was wondering if you have the same writing skills to write about electric shavers for dogs?



I'm sorry my thanks are coming so late, but I somehow missed these comments! Thank you so much for your kind words and support! I love sharing whatever I can with fellow groomers.

I have been shaving double coated dogs for 19 years without any problems. The local vet even sends his clients to me because he says their dog needs to be shaved!!
