Allison and Scott – Southern Pines, NC
Allison and Scott Blough, both lifelong pet lovers, are the family team at the Splash and Dash Groomerie & Boutique in Southern Pines. The duo met in 2013 and married in 2016, however they aren’t alone. At the family farm they are joined by three dogs, three horses, two cats, and a miniature donkey named Doc Holliday.
None of this is new to Allison, who has been an animal lover since she can remember. “Once we found Splash and Dash, we knew we’d found the perfect fit for us and for the community we envisioned bringing it to!” said Allison, who grew up with family dogs and cats and got her first horse when she was 13 years old. While in college, she studied both public relations and equine business.
After multiple deployments to the Middle East, Scott took a job in 2010 as an instructor where he would not be deployed for a few years. Scott had so many great experiences with military working dogs that he thought a Belgian Malinois would be a great fit. That’s when Jackie, a Belgian Malinois, entered his life. Jackie is his constant companion and triathlon training partner.
When Allison and Scott found Splash and Dash Groomerie and Boutiques, they knew that they had found the next leg of their journey. They chose Splash and Dash because of the family values that they both share. “Splash and Dash treats pets as family and we do too” said Allison.
The Family’s new shop is going to offer something special. A service that other groomers in the Southern Pines area can’t provide with the monthly membership.
