Joe is a second generation groomer, handler, and breeder of pure breed dogs. His family has been professionally involved with animals since 1960, particularly with dogs. Joe's uncle had one of the largest kennels in Chicago at that time. Joe started in his uncle's kennels bathing dogs at the age of eight for $.25 per dog. Joe's experience grew as his mother bred toy poodles and birds, and his uncle was a professional all breed handler and bred pure breed dogs. Joe continued to learn more, until he was big enough to handle the clippers and scissors, thus his grooming experience began in 1968 at a professional level. Joe's skills and abilities as a groomer have advanced him to the highest level, SHOW MASTER GROOMER AND GROOMING INSTRUCTOR. In Joe's prime commercial grooming days, Joe was capable of grooming 35 haircuts a day. Not many groomers can say they could do this volume. Joe is also a professional handler of all breeds, including many rare breeds not recognized by the American Kennel Club. Over the years, Joe has successfully bred, raised, shown, and finished the championships of many breeds. Joe's main love is the Standard Poodle. The standard Poodle is the most difficult to maintain in show quality condition. Joe's reputation for the "CORDED POODLE" Standard Poodle has made him well known among people in the dog world. In 1996, his white corded poodle "International and American CH. Jolettes Lexus Has Returned" call name "Lover Lex" was rated in the top 10 best Standard Poodles nationwide according to the AKC ranking. In 1972, Joe moved to Florida, after his uncle sold the kennels in Chicago and retired to Florida. In 1980, Jolettes Pet Parlor was opened providing professional all breed grooming for both commercial and show grooming as well as boarding services. Also, Joe and Iam's Pet Food sponsored his own television program for ten years called "Professional Pet Care Show", which was a live television program answering questions about pet care. Guests from the pet care industry nationwide were invited on the show to answer live caller's questions. Since the opening of Jolettes, its clientele had increased to over 8,000 satisfied customers. Joe has been invited to judge various poodle sweepstakes. He has also judged SKC all breed shows and matches for all breeds. Of course, Joe has been teaching hundreds of students over the last 30 years the art of animal grooming and has seen students advance to the highest level of grooming.
