Jonathan David, star of Animal Planet’s “Dogs 101” and “Groomer Has It” and ranked among the top five groomers in the USA, boasts a celebrity client list that includes Mariah Carey, Ralph Lauren, Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates, Betty Buckley, Louise Lasser, John O’Hurley, Betsy Johnson and Ivana Trump. David has distinguished himself in New York and Los Angeles as a stylist for the cosmopolitan canine and now as the new managaing partner of Lap of Luxury Dog Spa brings that flair to the Boca Raton area. A firm believer that a dog’s health and grooming go hand in hand, David has also become one of the nation’s foremost authorities on a variety of dog related topics including canine healthcare, nutrition, and general fabulousness.
Jonathan David’s career with canines began as a teen in the show ring, where he specialized in Australian Shepherds and The Chinese Crested Dog. He then moved to Manhattan to attend the prestigious Nash Academy of Grooming. While working at a grooming shop in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, he met Debi Mazor and her Toy Poodles, Delores and Lorraine. The actress asked for “a glamour cut” for her two pampered pooches and was wowed with David’s continental trim – an over-the-top flashy cut usually reserved for Poodles in the show ring.
Jonathan has been the recipient of multiple scissoring awards, multiple Best All Around Groomer awards and Best In Show earning him a position on GroomTeam USA in 2008 and 2009.
Jonathan is in the process of releasing his own collection of style products for dogs, NYCanine Clean. The products are made from Rooibos tea, a South African herbal formula found to sooth sensitive skin and relieve many dermatological conditions. In fact, Rooibos tea contains five times more healing antioxidant agents than green tea. NYCanine Clean will soon introduce a fragrance to the line, as well as an anti-static conditioning spray that combines the Rooibos tea with sunflower and sweet almond oil to heal dry, damaged skin and coats. “I’m creating a variety of products to accommodate the various canine coats: conditioning spray for longer coats, coat oil for both short and long coats.”
“Dogs are my life and making them look and feel good is my passion,” he continues. “I aim to educate owners so that all canines can live the fabulous life with that ultimate East Coast flare.”Dogs are my life and making them look and feel good is my passion,” he continues.
