About the owner

Kathy Esposito, born and raised in Stamford, CT and worked for Conoco, Inc. in their corporate offices in Stamford, Houston, TX and Wilmington,DE.  She retired following a corporate takeover.

She attended the New York School of Grooming. Upon graduation, she founded "A Pet Waggin" the first mobile groomer in the state of DE in 1990 which expanded to two vans within a year.

After moving to a home on three acres in Pennsylvania she opened "A Tender Touch Grooming and Boarding". This flourished and still operates today.

In December of 2000 she relocated to Dunedin Florida, which reminded her of the small town she grew up in. She enjoys walking around her town and on the Dunedin Causeway, in addition to cooking, cruising from Florida, and spending time in her home and yard. She has three dogs Joshua who is a long haired daschund, Bella who is a short haired and Annie B a pug mix whom she acquired from a client. They keep her straight!!

A Tender Touch opened in June of 2001 and has grown every year since then. The girls who work at Tender Touch with Kathy are true dog people and have only your pets best interest in mind. It has taken many years to find the great people who spend their days working for your pets comfort and Kathy feels very blessed to have them at her shop. Many of the doggie parent's who come to the shop say that their pet can't wait to get in and gets truly excited when they make the turn into the parking lot - which is a great complement to us!
