Luxeuil les Bains. The Cani’star grooming salon taken over by Marie-Laure Dirand

Cani’star, the grooming and balneotherapy salon for dogs run for many years by Pascale Marinoni has just been taken over by Marie-Laure Dirand. “I didn’t change the name of the shop, I simply wanted to add my personal touch by completing the sign, which becomes “Cani’star by Norman & Gustav”. This is the name of my two English cavalier king charles dogs, unfortunately deceased. I owe them my passion for dogs, and they inspired me and made me want to embark on this adventure,” says the new owner.

Professional change of course

“I have an affinity with dogs, and they reciprocate me well”, explains the one who worked for 25 years as a draftsman and construction manager in Montbéliard and decided to change her professional course. “I wanted to work with my hands with the animals. I obtained the technical certificate for the “canine, feline and new pet groomer” trades last June at the CFA in Mulhouse. But I’m originally from Luxembourg, I lived there all my childhood, and I never really left the city”. She kept her family, her friends, her social life there. “I came back often. »

New balneotherapy

Marie-Laure Dirand has just installed a new whirlpool. “There is no such offer on the department with this type of bathtub. I work with products from the Dead Sea, and essential oils”. The animals will be pampered, with baths (“some people love it!”), brushing, detangling, shearing and cutting with scissors, hair removal, claw trimming, cosmetology at based on French products from Angevin.

“No routine”

“I only take nice cats and ask their master to be present during the grooming. Maintaining the dogs seems easier to me”, specifies Marie-Laure, who emphasizes: “There is no routine! “.

Cani’star is located at 35 rue Carnot. By appointment only on 06 98 87 39 86.
