Meet Our Team!


Natalia Esparza has had a passion for animals since she was a child, and originally wanted to be a Veterinarian or Marine Biologist, but life has a way of changing one’s path! She has been a Certified Professional Pet Stylist for 10 years and happily working at Stinky Dawg for 7 years. She has two loving pooches, Esme a Min Pin and Purcy a Mix breed, one cat Michonne, and a Sun Conure bird named Sunny.


Gabrielle Ruano is a very artistic person with an eye for creativity and believes that’s what sparked her interest in grooming. She has been grooming for 4 years, and began working at Stinky Dawg almost 2 years ago. She put lots of time, love, and care into each and every pup and breed she has the opportunity to groom, although Poodles and Doodles are usually her top clients, and she even grooms cats occasionally! Gabrielle would love to continue her work with Creative Grooming in the form of hair and fur dye and learn more on Asian Fusion grooms. When she isn’t at work she spends her time with her purebred German Shorthaired Pointer, Kennedy, who is a really good and active pup!
