Get to know me:

Hello my name is Amber Blanton. I am a fully insured, certified groomer. I’ve been working with animals for over 10 years. Animals have been a part of my life since I was young. Early on my family and friends called me the “dog whisperer”. My dog training and pet sitting started when I was about 13 years old. Neighbors would call me to take care of their pets when they were away for work or on vacation. I would take care of many different kinds of animals, such as dogs, cats, horses, goats, and chickens.

As I got older and wiser, I realized that I was interested in pursuing a career with animals. My experiences with of animals inspired me to get my license from a Colorado dog grooming school, where I successfully completed a 9 week course on various types of breeds of dogs that were different shapes and sizes. Part of my training was how to talk to dogs in a calm manner. While I was in school I also learned how to administer dog CPR and how to handle a dog that bites or provide first aide if a dog gets injured. After I finished my training, I then opened up my own insured shop, which has been successful since 2013, which is still called Shear It Up to this day.
