New dog salon opens in Fayette 2013

Written by David Green.

Emily Johnson of Fayette has worked with dogs for years, so it was a natural choice for her to decide to make a career out of it. She opened her dog grooming salon, Adorable Dog Salon, last month.

"I love it," she said. "I'll do this forever."

Johnson has several years experience working with dogs and she completed a 750-hour course at a grooming school in Defiance. She also has about a year and a half of experience at a kennel.

She bought an empty building shell and had it delivered to her property at 301 W. Industrial Parkway (County Road S) just outside of Fayette. The building was custom designed to fit her needs, with laundry facilities, an elevated bathtub, a cage area for pet owners that want their dog kept separately from others, and a fenced-in area outside the back door. 

She handles clipping, bathing, nails and care for ears and glands.

"I use all-natural products that have never caused a reaction," she said.

From a three-pound poodle to a 100-pound Newfoundland, Johnson says she can handle it all.

She can be reached by calling 419/388-6955.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
