Wayzata Team

  • Leah Amy – Sales Associate

    I started atLuLu & Luigi in March of 2014. Before deciding to be a stay at home mom after the birth of my daughter in 2013, I worked as a professional “desk jockey” for a small family owned company in Plymouth. After sort of getting the hang of the whole mommy thing, I decided it was a good time to go back to work part-time. And what better place to work than a pet boutique! Of course the best part of this job is the animals! But my fantastic coworkers and clients make it not even feel like work! When I’m not working, I’m at home playing with my daughter or finding fun places for us to go. I also like to try to cuddle our very un-cuddly dogs Duke our 6 year old Papillon and Roscoe our 10 year old retired police canine.

  • Leah Cassandra – Pet Stylist

    I’ve been grooming for 13 years and have developed a specialty in working with senior dogs or those that do not enjoy the grooming process. I am a firm believer in putting the comfort, needs and safety of pets in my care first. I am also passionate about continuing education and attend numerous grooming seminars every year to learn new handling skills and techniques. I have two dogs and two cats. When I am not grooming I enjoy fishing, frisbee golf, dancing and ’80’s rock music.

  • Leah Jess – Pet Stylist

    I have had a passion for animals my entire life. Grooming dogs for the past 16 years has been a very rewarding career. Building close relationships with clients and their dogs is my favorite part. I am a mother of a 2 year old son named Dawson and 3 year old French Bulldog named Stella. I have been at LuLu & Luigi for the past 4 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. My clientele largely consists of Westies, Yorkies, Havanese, Maltese and Bichons. But I do have experience and enjoy grooming all breeds of dog. I am currently a member of the ISCC and pursuing Master Groomer certification.

  • Leah Jenna – Operations Manager

    I am the operations manager at the LuLu & Luigi. I have 3 adorable little Yorkies – Saffron, Wolfgang, and Razzle and a very handsome little Chinese Crested named Foo who will change anyone’s perspective of Cresties being an ugly breed! Though I have only worked at the store for about a year my dogs have been groomed at LuLu & Luigi since the location opened.

    I love my job and my fellow store staff. It’s wonderful to be able to work in an environment that allows me to connect with other pet parents to share stories and tips. I feel I have become extremely knowledgeable about the products we carry and feel confident that I can recommend products that will benefit our furry families.

    The best part of my job is not only connecting with clients and their pets (lots of puppy kisses!), but also being able to bring my own dogs to the store to socialize and help to model or demonstrate our products. They are great little associates too!

  • Leah Olivia – Pet Stylist

    All my life I’ve known that I want to work with animals, and I found the perfect job four years ago- dog grooming. I believe every dog has a personality and I love being able to get to know them. Building a relationship with my clients and their dogs is very important to me. By getting to know a dog I can interact with them better and figure out how I can best groom them. I am resourceful and try many different ways to make the dog as comfortable and happy as I can. I have two dogs of my own: Boomer, a giant schnauzer and Otis, a Pooshon. Some of my hobbies are martial arts, going to the dog park, spending time with my family and just being able to sit down and watch movies.

  • Leah Christine – Pet Stylist

    I have always loved animals. From the age of 3 until I was 5, my Dad was the caretaker of the Oliver H. Kelley Farm. Because he was the caretaker, we lived on site. When my Dad was working, I would walk down to the farm and spend time down there singing songs to all the farm animals. I still do that now with the dogs I groom! Having a job where I get to spend my day with dogs is fantastic! I’ve been grooming for 10 years. My clientele is filled with many different breeds of dogs, which I love because I enjoy grooming all breeds. One of the things I really enjoy about grooming is being able to watch dogs grow up and adapt to the grooming process. It is so rewarding to see a puppy be 100% comfortable with grooming. I love forming personal relationships with not only the dogs that I groom, but their owners as well. I have an 8 month old cat at home named Weasley who we adopted on Christmas Eve. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, being outside and listening to music
