At Ruff2Ritz Grooming, our highest priority is the safety and comfort of your beloved cat. Everything we do is designed with this in mind.
The ideal area in the home for grooming is a smaller, enclosed bathroom or utility room with a door that will close all the way. Feline's mommies and daddies are welcome to participate as much or as little as they wish. Reducing distractions and noise, as well as allowing relaxing breaks if needed by kitty are easily achieved in this space.
No groom is rushed. Each cat is given enough time to be treated humanely with love, patience, and a gentle approach.
Tracy Schulze, founder and owner of Ruff2Ritz Grooming began her career in 2014. Miss Tracy has a special connection with cats. She has the natural ability to communicate with them, and her priority is to promote the physical and emotional health of the cats she grooms, as well as to educate her human clients.
Early on Tracy had always had a soft heart for animals, enticing her parents to own just about every kind of pet you could think of. From goldfish to hermit crabs, hamsters, rabbits, guniea pigs, birds, cats and dogs, she was always caring for and learning about each and every one of them.
In her twenties her pets grew in size to include goats and horses, and she dreamed of becoming a horse groomer and Olympic Jumper in the Equestrian Games. Horses have been and always will be her favorite animal.
Tracy's passion and love for catering to the well-being of her pets finally found its home after being laid off from her Graphic Design career. She enrolled in and graduated from the Institute of Technical Arts in Florida in 2014, where she studied the art of professional pet styling and completed the 900 hour course with honors!
She honed her techniques through mentors while grooming both in mobile salons at client's homes, as well brick and mortar establishments. Shortly thereafter she established Ruff2Ritz Grooming and began seeing clients out of her converted garage in Port Orange, FL.
To stay current with latest grooming fashions and trends, as well as improving skills and expertise, Tracy attends seminars, workshops and tradeshows seasonally.
After relocating from the Florida east coast, Tracy has taken her business mobile, achieving ongoing success serving her feline and canine clients. Wishing to always offer more to her loyal clientele, Tracy is studying to become a Certified Feline Master Groomer.
