The Humans of the Shop

Rachel DiPietro-Caputo

Rachel has been grooming for over 20 years and has a devoted client base. Her exceptional skills, ability to relate to customers, and her calm demeanor with dogs are what makes her such an integral part of the team. She is also a wonderful resource for new additions to the pack! Rachel has been part of the shop since Day 1 and has helped to build the reputation of excellence in grooming services for which Soggy Doggy Shop is known. She's on Instagram @racheldcgrooming.

Sarah Bodnar

Sarah has been grooming for over 7 years. She brings her skill, enthusiasm, and joy for life with her to work every day. Her love for her job is evidenced by the smile on her face at the end of each day. While Sarah loves grooming all breeds, she particularly loves Yorkies (and is a Yorkie mom herself!). Check out Sarah's work on Instagram @stylingroomersarah.

Haley Defeo

Haley has been grooming for over 6 years. She has attended many classes and seminars to expand her grooming skills and knowledge. She began competitive grooming in 2019 with her minature Poodle, Stanley. Haley has a knack for grooming poodles and other curly coated breeds. Check out Haley's professional & competitive work on Instagram @groomingby_haley.

Heidi Holzapfel

Heidi is a born-Burgher, a graduate of The Ellis School, and a two-time graduate of Syracuse University, obtaining both a Bachelor's and Masters of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship. After working in residential and commercial real estate for a number of years, she joined her family's book distribution and publishing company in 2008, eventually taking over daily operations management. When the time came to make a professional change, Heidi thought through the preverbal "what would I love to wake up and do every day?" and immediately knew working with dogs would be, well, barking up the right tree. 

Heidi is a member of Orchard Hill Church, an adjunct instructor at The Ellis School, and a member of the Board of Directors for the Ohio Cattle Dog Rescue Team.
