The Terrierific Tale

Terrierific was conceived and founded by ElizaBeth Cronk in 1988 based on what she saw to be an unmet need. Beth had just acquired her first Wire Fox Terrier, Kipper, and couldn’t find a grooming salon in Manhattan with expertise in hand-stripping terriers. Already an accomplished all-breed groomer, Beth started Terrierific because she saw a large, untapped market for a specialist in hand-stripping terriers. Beth’s large and loyal client base in Manhattan, Connecticut and New Jersey attests to this.


Beth has learned from and worked with some of the top terrier specialists in the country, including Richard Chashoudian, international breeder of Wire Fox Terriers, AKC Judge, and master of the art of hand-stripping. She has assisted at major events on the dog show circuit, including the Westminster Kennel Club Show and the Montgomery Terrier Show.

Client Testimonials

When we got our Russell Terrier, I quickly realized that he was going to require a professional groomer who specializes in terrier stripping. We soon learned that Beth had moved to Aiken, SC and that she was an experienced terrier groomer. We quickly set up an appointment and both of our terriers got the benefit of Beth’s skills. I also learned about the proper tools for maintaining the terriers’ coats between seasonal stripping appointments with Beth.

We are most fortunate that Beth has set up her grooming business in Aiken and I urge any owner with a dog that requires professional grooming to call Beth. She’s a delightful person and is so willing to share her knowledge.
