Our Team

Laura Hartenstein


The Puppy Parlor is owned by Laura Hartenstein-Matella who has 20 years of grooming experience. Laura started out as an apprentice to learn grooming inside and out. Her teachers saw great potential in Laura so they entered her into the Rising Star grooming competition in 2005. Shortly after, Laura's teachers gave her the opportunity to take over their dog grooming business which Laura owned and operated for 4 years.

After owning her first business Laura decided to hike the Appalachian Trail and discovered her love for Maine. She grew even more patient and calm by being in nature. She then focused her attention to become a Nationally Certified Groomer (NCG) in all breeds through the National Dog Groomers Association of America. Upon completion Laura was excited to have another opportunity to own her own grooming salon. She loves spending her days nurturing animals with the love they deserve and sharing her love of grooming with everyone that comes into The Puppy Parlor.

I have been grooming for 5 years now. I think dogs are good for the soul. I love making your fur babies look their best while smelling great. Grooming has been a huge part of my life as I grew up in a groom salon. dogs have always been my best friends. I like fishing and playing outside with my 2 children an my side kicks Stitch & Lilo. 

Lisa Rancourt

Lisa joined our team in March of 2022. She has been grooming for 7 years. She enjoys making your dogs look and feel their best. She has a passion for the great outdoors and dog grooming and loves getting all the kisses when the dogs are being groomed. She loves all animals and cant imagine a life without them.


When Lisa is not grooming you can find her spending time with her family, her dog Annie, fishing, and taking walks on the beach.

I am a PA native who is so happy to be in Maine caring for your pups! I am passionate about making the grooming experience as low stress as possible for pets, has a soft spot for seniors, and loves grooming continuing education. My favorite breed of dogs is pugs (snort!), Newfoundland's, Shih Tzu's, and Brussels Griffons. Outside of work I love hiking, baking, and spending time with my cat, cockatiel, and fat fancy goldfish.
