MarilynMarilyn & Barstow

My Lulu passed away at 16 1/2 years old. I miss Lulu a lot, however I know she is glad Ms. Barstow is now the love of my life. My son, who is referred to as Barstow Bob, found her running loose on the streets of Brea when she was only about 3 months old. This is where she got her name Ms. Barstow.

My name is Marilyn Mathews, and I am the proud owner of K9 Karousel.

I grew up on a farm in Michigan, surrounded by animals. I can’t imagine a life without pets. When I was younger, I dreamed of becoming a veterinarian.

Marriage and raising a family sidetracked that dream. Yet when I was able, I became a fully qualified pet groomer – with the hope of one day opening my own salon.

I realized that dream in 1996, when I opened K9 Karousel with zero clientele. Since then, we have grown to over 6,000 clients, with approximately 4600 active pets. We serve Anaheim, Buena Park, Garden Grove, Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Stanton, and Southern California with all your pet grooming, nail trimming, dental hygiene, and FURminator needs.

K9 Karousel is committed to using environmentally friendly products to ensure your pet’s comfort and safety.

K9 Karousel utilizes a “Tender Touch” method when handling your pet. K9 Karousel has an extremely caring and knowledgeable team. We all work together to provide your pets with superior personalized attention, and quality grooming in a timely manner.

Hi, my name is Crystal Joy. I have been a pet groomer since 2003 and have been working with Marilyn at K9 Karousel since September of 2006. Working with pets is all I have ever wanted to do, and I love my job. I consider myself lucky to be able to groom, play with, and love on your pets during their day at K9 Karousel Spaw. I am very confident in my grooming skills and groom all kinds of dogs and cats. My specialties are Yorkies, Westies, Scotties, Bichons, and mutt grooming to the owner’s request. I am looking forward to helping your little puppy or kitty friend to look their best.

Hi, my name is Ruth. Ever since I was a very little girl, I have had a deep desire to work with animals. I chose to go to grooming school to make this desire a reality.

I feel genuinely lucky to be able to care for your pets while doing what I love, working with animals.

Big and small I groom them all! I am looking forward to meeting you and your pets!
