IMG_5833 Chrystal Beck, Assistant

Hi, I’m Chrystal Beck I started at Blair Doon in May 2016 as a veterinary assistant. I was at my last veterinary clinic from August 2005- May 2016, where I started in the boarding kennels and worked my way up. I graduated from dog grooming school in 2007, so in my “spare time” I groom dogs. My husband and I moved to Douglas and bought a home on 21 acres so that our 10 spoiled rotten house dogs ( 10 Australian Shepherds) and 6 cats could have more space. When I’m not working I enjoy competing in all kinds of dog sports; agility, obedience, rally, conformation, herding, dock diving, and a little bit of everything else. Our Aussies are health tested and overly socialized, so that we can continue a healthy lineage or versatile Razzmatazz Aussies.
