Owners of DogGone Gorgeous, Amy and Rex King, first opened their doors to their new grooming business in March 2014. It was after the encouragement of Amy's sister, Lynn Marksbury, who passed away on March 6 from breast cancer, that Amy and Rex decided to follow their dreams. Now, less than two years later, they have opened their doors to their new home on Milan Rd. This location is testament to their hard work and dedication as it offers more space for their quickly growing business.

"We are from out of town and had to come to Sandusky for a wedding. We took both our dogs there for the night. Not only were they flexible with time they also posted pictures and videos on their Facebook page so we could see how our little ones were doing. They are genuinely friendly and explained everything thoroughly before and after.
