Ginna Anthony, owner of Beau's Bath House and Doggie Spa, got to show off her skills during a recent taping of HGTV's My First Sale on Tuesday.
Three crewmembers arrived at the shop a little after 8 a.m. to set up for a segment on Steve and Jen Young, who brought their dogs in for a bath.
"They are following them throughout the sale of their first home," Anthony said.
Having the crew and the extra guests at the shop was certainly a unique experience, the pet salon owner said. During the taping, pictures were taken down and items were moved to set up a background for the segment.
Anthony taught the Youngs proper bathing techniques for Thor, the couple's American bulldog, while members of the crew watched.

Anthony said it was the first time her shop was used for a television show.
She would welcome the experience again, but maybe not during the week.
"I am glad I did not schedule any appointments at that time," Anthony said.
The Youngs practiced their lines as they prepared for the taping.
"We love dogs," Steve Young said. "We actually have seven of them we rescued from the shelter."
The couple's love for their animals is the reason they decided to make a change.
"There are big reasons why we need to sell our house," Jen Young said during the taping. "There is not enough room inside or outside for this gang."
According to Anthony, HGTV crews said the show featuring the Youngs and their stop at her shop will be aired in late summer or early fall.
Beau's Bath House and Doggie Spa is located at 1800 Brinker Road, Suite 270.
