Rosie's Pampered Puppies 

About Us

Rosie started grooming in 1991 at a shop called Animal Friends in Rochester when she moved here with her husband and son from Nebraska. 

Rita Bee, one of the original owners of Animal Friends, was Rosie's mentor and friend who taught her much about grooming techniques and how to properly handle dogs and understand their needs.

Since 1991, Rosie has worked both full and part-time with a couple of professional grooming shops in Rochester as well as providing grooming services for select clients in her home.

Rosie's passion has always been animals.  Since she was a young child growing up in Australia,  she has always surrounded herself with animal friends.   Rosie and her family currently own and care for several animals over the years - dogs, cats, birds and horses.

In 2006, she opened up a shop on Main Street in Kasson.  In 2012, she expanded and built her new shop on her home property just south of Kasson! There you may be greeted by horses, chickens, her cats Shirley and Oliver, and her Cockateal named Dick (yes...there is a story behind the name)!
