About us

I'm Cecilia, owner and operator of Cecilia's Temple of Groom, located in Burien WA.  Thank you for your interest in our dog grooming services.  I'm very excited to offer the dog grooming services that I feel most strongly about and that what we think are a positive experience for even our most shy and timid little friends.

I have been grooming dogs full time since 1996.  I started my career in Michigan, training with the great groomers at Mr. B's Pet Salon located in Garden City and at Canine Country located in Eastpointe.  Since arriving in Seattle in 2006 my midwest style of great customer service has been well received.  I have been having a great time taking care of the dogs of the Northwest! 

Since 1996 I have continued to perfect my craft by taking classes and engaging in a great deal of self study to keep up on the latest trends, equipment, and health standards for salons. I opened Cecilia's Temple of Groom in 2011. It was a big year for us as we were promptly voted #1 Grooming Salon in Western WA! Cecilia's Temple of Groom has been my dream business and I look forward to making it grow for many years to come.

When I'm not grooming dogs, I spend A LOT of time traveling. Some highlights have been dog sledding in Sweden, swimming with wild pigs in the Bahamas, getting a chance to visit Steve Irwin’s Zoo, and seeing nesting fairy penguins in Australia. I love to work out, roller skate, and hike here in Seattle too! Also, what you’ve heard is true, I don't currently own a dog.  Trust me though - I get plenty of pup time here at Temple of Groom.

Thank You,
I look forward to meeting you and your dogs!


Hello, I’m Jess! I’m from Seattle but spend most of my weekends in Yakima. I own two horses and three dogs, well really it’s 6 horses all together counting my brothers hehe. I’ve participated in a variety of sports in high school, wrestling being one of them. I love going to the movies for 5$ on Tuesday’s @amc southcenter, and enjoy spending most of my free time throughout the week at a dog park with my two border collie mixed with lab pups!


My Name is Angie. I feel blessed to be working for Cecilias TOG. I have been away from the pet industry for quite some time raising three kids. All are grown now, and i now have grand babies! I am so happy to be back working with my favorite animals. Some of my hobbies are rock collecting, exploring the NW, kayaking and most of all being a grandma. I take a lot of pride in my work, i love working with great women and having fun!

Hi! My name is Caylie and I've been grooming since 2008.

I live with three beautiful cats, two boys and a girl named Gixer, Icarus(icky), and Bubbles Scarface(little miss). 

I frequently shop at thrift stores, half price books, and Michael's and I like to cook and come up with fancy dishes. 

I also like to travel and explore places I haven't been to but also enjoy cozy evenings at home

with a good movie, funny show or especially a good book.
