Decades of experience

Susan Herrold Payne runs Fabulous Lanai Grooming Salon now that her mother Barbara has retired. Susan's skill and experience are probably unmatched in the Sacramento area – she began working as a dryer in the shop in 1972 – when she was just 13 years old.


Groomers Julie, Rosa and O.T. together have more than 40 years of experience. Like Susan they handle every pet with care and skill.


Dogs, cats and even the occasional rabbit receive low-stress treatment at Fabulous Lanai. Our philosophy is to make sure each pet feels comfortable before, during and after a grooming.


Barbara and Don Herrold, founders of Fabulous Lanai Grooming, often drop by the salon even in retirement. Their grandsons Ryan and Cooper also occasionally join the team, particularly during busy times of the year.
