“Never start a business to “make money,” start a business to make a difference.” -unknown

When your first word is “moo” and you grow up surrounded by animals it isn’t surprising to grow up to be an animal whisperer. Which is precisely what Bree is. Bree spent a great deal of her childhood with her Mom inside of grooming salons, doggy daycares (because why would anyone go to a human one if given the option?), and watching her Dad rodeo while the family was surrounded by horses. It’s easy to see little Bree working as a mini grooming assistant. When leaving the nest, she had her sights set on not making a career out of becoming a groomer. Her first calling was becoming a Colorguard instructor, but she tried to broaden her horizons by attending school to become a dental assistant, working in restaurants, retail, and even door to door sales. 

Life had other plans for Bree when she met her dog soulmate, Tink, the beautiful boxer mix, who guided her path. Bree applied at Petco in 2011 on her 20th birthday and secured the position. Since then, she has worked on rehabilitating dogs, preparing them for adoption, interning with dog trainers, caring for pets, and grooming them in the decade she has been in the industry. During this time, she built a network of brilliant and talented friends while honing her childhood skills.

Her clan expanded to include Marilyn the cat from Adams County Animal Shelter in 2012, known for her resting bitch face that Bree finds irresistible. Sadly, Marilyn passed away in 2022, and she is dearly missed. Joining them in 2019 was Odie the Purple Poodle, who played a significant role in the growth of Nailed It. While Tink has always guided Bree, Odie has taught her a gentle approach to working hands-on with animals. Among the three, the clan has also included rats, a rabbit, and fish over the years! (Don’t forget to check out Odie’s bio!) Most recently, Bree adopted Elmer, a Persian, and Glue, a shorthair kitty with Heterochromia, dubbed “the boys” in 2023, both from separate hoarding situations. They spend most of their days cuddling and making out with each other. Lastly, but not least, the newest member of the crew is Tamsin, aka Tam, Bree’s service dog prospect, adopted in 2024!

What Pet Parents Are Saying

Our clients’ owners love us just as much as they do!

Bree was so great with our big girl Luna. Really quick too! Very appreciative of the time she spent before and after as well!
A huge Thank You (and a pug snort too!) to Bree Luton of Nailed It Denver! She came by my little shop today and gave Soleil an impromptu nail trim. Not only did Bree grind her nails down gently, she also cleaned her ears, and gave her a minty-enzyme for her teeth. She even finishes things off with a paw balm. It seems like a small thing, but Bree said she prefers to start with ears, so that her first touch for your dog is a comforting one. She really took time for every detail, even starting the dremel behind her back and quietly so she wouldn't startle my pugger.
Bree made trimming my lab's nails an easy experience for him (and me!). She is quick to respond and easy to communicate with. During her visit, she had treats and was gentle throughout the entire process. I was nervous because Miller has heartworm and needs to stay calm but Bree made it a relaxing time, patiently explaining every step to me and why uses those specific products. She knows what goes into the treats and foot pad balm. I'm pleased with her quality of work and how she treats dogs. I'll definitely pay to have her trim Miller's nails again.


Nailed it’s mascot & mini sidekick

Meet Odie our fabulous mascot! In 2016 Odie was brought in to to be groomed before he was taken to the shelter. After a couple of hours of Freddy Krueger type moves on the grooming table, Bree decided to find him a forever home. Well that didn’t last long! He has been a big part of the building process of Nailed it Denver. He is the face of our business and is actually available for hire at big or small parties and events!
