About Our Salon

At Good Vibrations we understand that grooming is not something that all dogs enjoy. It is our mission to make the process as comfortable and low stress as possible. Grooming is done by appointment only to minimize the amount of dogs in the salon at any given time. We take our time to keep your dog relaxed and use gentle handling techniques. Because we strive to keep things calm, if a dog becomes too fearful or aggressive we will ask that you pick them up. If you are worried that your dog may become anxious, feel free to schedule a meet and greet with one of our stylists! Consultation is free and can reduce the stress of that first appointment.

Shepherd Calder


Angela WynDham


Angela WynDham was born and raised in South Carolina and recently moved to Washington in August of 2021. She has lived around dogs, cats, horses, and loads of other animal life during her time spent on farms. Angela has an extreme passion for animals and started working first at a shelter in 2013. From there, she found her love of grooming and moved on to a vet clinic in 2014.  Outside of the salon, she's a frequent hiker and loves to take her lab Rooster on many adventures. Her animal pack consists of Rooster, Norman & Sally her cats, and 2 lovely leopard geckos named Dot and Flo.

Shepherd is from Vashon Island and started his grooming journey back in the summer of 2019. He was a bather that showed great potential to learn and grow in the industry. Shepherd did take a break for a year but decided his love for grooming was too strong to ignore. He is very well experienced in a variety of breed cuts, and while he prefers working on larger dogs, he gives just as much love and care to the littles! Our team has a general love of all animals, and Shepherd is no exception. He currently lives with four cats, but his furever soulmate is a sweet black kitty named Wednesday.
