Premier Loving Care opened for business in downtown Shelbyville, Indiana in September of 2011
Our mission is to make your life as a pet-owner just a tiny bit easier.
We believe that all animals have a right to be treated with respect and deserve to be treated with love as well.
Give your pet a little PLC!
If you’ve stopped in to visit – you’ve probably met one of our two owners – Nathan Speth and Lydia “Dee Dee” Edwards.
With over 20 years experience in business management, most of that time in the fields of information technology, customer service, animal care and retail management, Dee Dee is the driving force behind the shop. However, she can’t fool the dogs into thinking she’s there for any reason other than loving on them!! If you drive by the shop, you’ll often catch her “goofing off” in the front window with a furry client.
If Dee Dee is the driving force, Nathan is the steering wheel. With over a decade of experience in administration, accounting, animal care and management, Nathan has had all the tools he has needed to help guide Premier Loving Care through our growth over the past 6 years. Many people don’t even realize he does anything other than care for dogs here though! His calm demeanor puts the animals at ease in a way no one else has been able to match – and he is often called upon to deal with our most challenging “babies”.
Ashley Haus – Professional Groomer – A Shelbyville local, Ashley learned to groom here, by completing the PLC Groomer Training Program. Time has flown since she graduated, and it is hard to believe she has been grooming professionally with us for more than a year already! Her sweet nature and calm demeanor puts the puppies at ease very quickly. Your fur-baby will enjoy its spa day with Ashley!!
Britney Bannon – Professional Groomer – Another graduate of our internal groomer training program, Britney grooms with us part time on Wednesday and every other Thursday. Her career as a surgical nurse did not have enough animal interaction for this true dog lover, and she happily spends her “days off” taking care of Shelbyville’s furry family members!!
Jenny Carson – Professional Groomer – Jenny has over 12 years professional grooming experience – almost 3 years of that at Premier Loving Care (so far) – and the dogs respond to that! Calm in every situation, loving and gentle, your baby is in good hands with Jenny!
Kelsey Piercy – Professional Groomer – Another Shelbyville local – Kelsey has been an amazing part of our grooming family since 2015 🙂 The love and patience she uses in her daily life raising her children really shows when she is working with the fur-babies here! You will love the results and your fur-baby will love their spa day with Kelsey!
Kandise Lock – Customer Service/Professional Bather – Even though she is one of the newest additions to the PLC family, Kandi has already made quite a difference around here! Originally hired and trained to bathe dogs part-time during our busiest season, it didn’t take long before her work ethic and go-getter attitude caused us to see if she wanted to take on a little more. She is now trained and assists up front with checking dogs in, taking phone calls and checking dogs out. We are excited to see what she learns to do next!!
Emily Coats – Professional Bather – You’ll have to come on a Saturday to catch this busy addition to the group here at PLC. Emily’s prior experience caring for horses was very good preparation for dealing with big dogs in the bathtubs! Her demeanor is soothing, and her bathing is meticulous. She will be sure to take the time necessary to get your fur-baby as clean as it can be!!
