My Bentley loves Christine and Paris so much!! He gets very excited when we get to the shop and I love that they let the pups run around and play!!! It's very apparent they love animals... The very best groomer there is!
Christine's passion for animals started from early childhood. Her experience as a vet technician, behavior training evaluator, and volunteering with animal agencies finally led her to a career of pet grooming. She's been working with animals her entire life .
Rad Dog’s inspiration to provide vocational training as well as permanent employment to different-abled adults all started with owner Christine Well’s son, KJ.
KJ was born with Down syndrome, a congenital heart defect and a long list of health issues as well. Christine spends a lot of her time helping KJ be the best he can be and thinking about
his future. She says, “The majority of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are either unemployed or underemployed, despite their ability, desire, and willingness to work in the community. I wanted to help change that.”
Rad Dog has been working with North Florida School of Special Education, Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Down Syndrome Association, and others to help people with disabilities nd meaningful careers.
Rad Dog permanently hires adults that are different-abled. Wells says, “The adults that apply with Rad Dog want to work with animals, and it’s amazing what we can do for them. Providing jobs and having fun doing what we do makes for an awesome workday!”

My Bailey is always beautiful to me but the cut you gave her yesterday she could win best in show! Thank you so much for taking the time and suggesting this new cut for her body type. Bailey has been prancing about the house showing off her new look since I picked her up!!
I have never met a dog this excited to go to the groomers! My Luna loves Ms.Christine and going to Rad Dog! She always looks so pretty when she is done! I would recommend Rad Dog to anyone! Great place!
Rad Dog Salon is by far the best groomer in Jacksonville! The staff is so wonderful and kind. I am very particular on how I get my Yorkie groomed and I am in love with the way she looks and smells when I pick her up. I love that they allow for the "dog friendly'' pups stay out of a cage and walk freely in the penned area. I always feel comfortable leaving her in their care and I know she will be treated well! The prices are more than reasonable as well! Thank you Rad Dog!
