Meet Our Staff

Jill – Owner, Pet Groomer, Breeder, Trainer, and Handler

         Jill’s career with dogs goes back to childhood and the family’s Shelties. Grooming, obedience training, and showing were in her daily life. Since adulthood, Jill has had over 40 Canadian Champions of various breeds and groups. She has had over 20 AKC Wirehaired Pointing Griffon Champions, 10 Chinese Cresteds (she was top breeder 3 years in a row!) , and handled other breeds (Newfoundlands, Dobermans, Great Danes, German Pinschers). Not only has Jill handled and bred most of these breeds; she has groomed numerous other breeds for over 36 years. Not only dogs have been groomed under Jill’s skillful scissors and clippers; but numerous cats have too! Since her farm is off the main road and some of her customers have found it too hard to get to her place in the winter, Paw-rific has come into existence to make life easier for all her customers.

        For nearly 40 years, owner Jill Rankinen, had provided grooming services from her home. In 2011, help from family members allowed her the opportunity to acquire a life long dream.  Together they purchased a centrally located property on Palms Avenue (US Hwy 41, Ishpeming, Michigan). Having improved access with room for expansion, Jill’s home based business extended into a full service pet salon with retail store.

        Paw-rific offers obedience training. Each addition continues to provide Paw-rific a unique perspective, and still accomplish the main goal of being a family orientated business for employees and clients alike.


Darryl Larson – Groomer, Animal Lover

      Darryl has been with us since the very beginning of 2021. He shows up to work every day with a positive attitude and a smile on his face. Nearly every animal that comes into Paw-rific is drawn to Darryl’s soft nature and kindness. He is a very talented groomer and an extremely quick learner. Darryl is a hard worker and will take on any task at hand regardless of the size. There is no telling how far he will go.
