Haute Dog is proud to present our team of canine experts.  

Cheri Halla

Owner, Groomer

Cheri has 15+ years of dog grooming and pet spa management experience, and founded Haute Dog with a vision of providing a better class of dog grooming, boarding, daycare & self-wash services.  


Cheri and her husband Jason have two daughters (with one on the way!), one gigantic dog (River, pictured above), multiple cats, a pig and a chicken. When she's not building world-class canine care companies, Cheri enjoys photography and watching sci-fi movies. 

Wendy Bergquist


Wendy is a Master Groomer with 20+ years of grooming and salon management experience, with an encyclopedic knowledge of grooming techniques, dog breeds and behaviors.  

Wendy's love for animals can be seen in her extended furry family, which includes 6 dogs, 2 monkeys, a parrot, 2 horses, a donkey, a cat, and a rare Australian jackalope.

When he's not working on nerdy computer stuff for Haute Dog, Jason is the proud father of two amazing daughters (with another on the way!), and enjoys playing piano.
