Meet The Groomers
Lesley Wendt, the head groomer and owner of Zion Hill Kennel, started her grooming career when she was 13 years old. She worked for a local groomer, who taught her everything she needed to know about bathing and clipping dogs and cats. Her career in grooming started off by bathing and brushing out dogs. As time went on, her curiosity in grooming led to her learning more and more about the breeds and their clips. Clip after clip, year after year, Lesley started perfecting her skills in grooming. In 2008, Lesley graduated with a degree in Applied Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire. After college Lesley became a Veterinary Technician working at a local Vet Hospital doing both veterinary technician work as well as being their only groomer. In 2012, Lesley worked at two different grooming locations. One in Brentwood, NH and the other in Kittery, Maine. It wasn't until 2016 that Lesley was able to finally purchased her own home in Lebanon, Maine where she built up her grooming shop and continued to serve the Maine and New Hampshire area right out of her home grooming shop. It wasn't long before Lesley was outgrowing her space and needed to expand. But her passion wasn't just in Grooming. She saw there was a need for proper pet care, where pets were treated like family. A place where dogs could play all day and spend the night if needed, where owners didn't have to worry, because they knew their pets were in the best hands. That's when she decided to open Zion Hill Kennel.
Lesley's whole life has always been dedicated to animals of all shapes and sizes. Her compassion and patience puts her above the standard for grooming. Many people who know Lesley, know the amazing ability she has to groom dogs and cats that no one else is able to do. She's not afraid to try. She has patience and truly gets to know and understand each and every pet she comes into contact with.
If it involves animals, Lesley is apart of it. From rescuing horses, raising puppies, showing dogs, showing horses, and even fundraising for local shelters and rescues. Lesley has a huge heart for animals and owns many of her own in all shapes and sizes. If it involves animals, most likely, Lesley has done it or is apart of it. She is a true animal lover through and through.
We would like to introduce our new Groomer, Olivia Provost to our Zion Hill Kennel team. Not only does Olivia live right here in New Durham, NH but her family has been coming to New Durham and Merrymeeting Lake for many years.
Olivia strong passions for grooming and dogs start at the age of 14 where she landed her first job at a doggy daycare and boarding facility. That's when Olivia started bathing dogs. From there she attended Essex Agricultural and Technical High School Studying in the companion animal field. For four years she received hands on training in Grooming, Dog Training, Nutrition, Behavior, Body Language, Anatomy and so much more. With this training and experience, Olivia has worked in a few different Daycare/Boarding/ Grooming Facilities. She has experience in grooming a variety of breeds and styles. " My goal for every dog is to make the experience as fun and least stressful as possible. It is my pleasure to work for Zion Hill Kennel as a groomer and I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies."
