Wendy Pifer

Groomer

Wendy Pifer started working for the Village Groomer & Animal Inn in 2006 as a bather brusher. Wendy showed a true dedication and love for caring for pets and was highly motivated to become one of Clarksville’s top groomers. In 2008 Wendy began studying under Renee, who is a Nationally Certified Master Groomer, and earned her pet stylist position.

She finds it particularly rewarding to earn the trust of the shy, nervous dogs and teach them that grooming doesn’t have to be scary. A Clarksville native, she shares her home with her husband, John, four dogs (Smokie, Ellie, Shelby, and Maddie), and four cats (Cici, Pib, Literati, and Scrabble). Outside of work, she enjoys hiking with the dogs, or staying in and reading a good book.
