WICHITA — Tiana Kuntz has spent the past 16 years grooming dogs for other businesses, and now she's going to open her own dog-grooming business.
"I've thought about it for the last two or three years," Kuntz says. "It's a skill set I have, and I enjoy doing it, so I may as well do it for myself."
She's going to open Pristine Paws in 1,100 square feet at 1900 W. 13th St., which is just east of McLean.
Kuntz also is employing groomers Jordan Walker, who has five years of experience, and Stacey Reeves, who has done it for six years.
Pristine Paws will be a full-service grooming business, though Kuntz says she won't offer teeth cleaning.
The business will open March 1. Kuntz says she's “pretty stoked.”
"It was just time for a change."

To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know).
