Business Profile: Tiffiny Luttrell

Camp K-9, 50 West Basin Ave., 775-990-3924

Age: 46

Background: “I have been boarding and grooming dogs in Pahrump for about a year. I also breed Shih-Tzu dogs. I got started doing this in Las Vegas and did this for five years out there. For the longest time, I slaved away in the casino business for 14 years working with slot machines and I finally got tired of that and decided to get into business for myself.”

Years in business: “I have been grooming dogs for seven years.”

First job ever: “I worked at Chuck E. Cheese as a birthday coordinator at 15 years old.”

Personal: “I like doing things outdoors. For me this means going up to the mountains and watching the wild horses. I also like spending time with all my pets. I even have three pot-bellied pigs and a miniature horse.”

Business climate: “The economy has been good and for my business. Since I opened the boarding part of my business, I have done even better, but people can make it in this town just grooming dogs. I call it Camp K-9 because each dog has its own 12×6 space and they have their own TV. At our place we try to make the dogs experience as close to home as possible.”

CHUCK BAKER: Land, Land, but not an inch to spare

“Don’t Fence Me In” was a popular song in the 1940s. Some might say it could be today’s theme song for Nellis AFB. Between all the land held in Nevada by the local air base and the Bureau of Land Management, it appears that control over boundaries and borders will be with Silver State entities for quite some time.
