Who we are

Liz Hartman is the owner of Dirty Dog Wash & Salon.  She has been working with dogs for more than 25 years, the last 22 of which she has spent dog grooming in her own salon.  

Ever since birth she has had a dog (or 2 or 3!) by her side.  Liz was raised with a deep love and respect for all animals, and the gentle, loving, loyal nature of the dog really captured her heart from the beginning.  This special connection with dogs has fueled her career in canine care ever since.   

Liz lives in downtown Frederick with her husband, Jeff, and their 3 dogs and 2 cats. 

Cheyenne Kitzmiller, Manager and one of our wonderful canine stylists, is a huge animal lover, especially dogs.  She has worked in the pet care industry for over 13 years.  The last 5 years she has been grooming and managing full time at the Dirty Dog Wash & Salon and it has been a perfect fit! 

Cheyenne lives in Dickerson, MD with her husband, Joe, daughter, River, and their seven dogs (yes 7!) and many other furry critters.
