  ‘Muddy Mutt’ dog grooming is now open
  Lefor with her chocolate lab AJ.

The first thing you notice at K T British Labs and Muddy Mutt Grooming is the noise—around 14 dogs in a confined space tend to make a lot of noise.

“It helps to love them,” said JoLynn Lefor, owner of Muddy Mutt, the new dog grooming business located with her partner. Kim Olson’s business K T British Labs. “We both love dogs.”

Lefor has had 18 years experience as a dog groomer: 11 in Bismark, North Dakota; and the past seven in Aberdeen, South Dakota. A avid hunter and trainer, she met Olson at a hunt test and the two soon decided to team up.

Muddy Mutt offers hair- cuts, shampoos, baths, and toenail grooming, etc. for folks four-legged friends.

She named her business Muddy Mutt because she didn’t want a foofoo name.

Muddy Mutt officially opened on November 15. Call for an appointment, 605-290-8424, or email Lefor at

Lefor said all dogs benefit from regular grooming. Their fur gets untangled, dirt, insects, and/or burrs are removed which can be very uncomfortable for dogs, and their ears checked for bugs, dirt, or other debris. Regular grooming also helps with skin issues...not to mention dog smell.

“I used to have clients that would have their dogs groomed every two weeks just so they smelled nice.”

Lefor recommends long haired dogs be groomed every four to six weeks, shorter hair dogs do not need to be groomed quite as often.

Lefor said she has groomed just about every type of dog out there, and gets along well with most of them.

“Every once in a while you get a biter,” she said. “But most dogs like being groomed because it feels good.”
