About Us

Peaceful Dog is owned by Kirsten Stade, who began grooming and training dogs as a way to make shelter and rescue dogs more adoptable and save more lives. 

I've volunteered with shelters and rescues in Guatemala, Manhattan, New Mexico, Oregon and now in the Washington, DC area.

I have a Master's degree in Conservation Biology and have worked in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in Guatemala and Alaska. My studies have infused my practice with a respect for all beings--as well as a commitment to all-natural grooming products.
