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!

I love animals, most specifically gorillas.
