Ayumi
Dog Groomer

She/Her

Ayumi has over 7 years of experience as a pet groomer and she is always seeking to learn and improve her skills. She loves grooming all kinds of breeds, but her favorite is working with curly-haired breeds, using a mix of styles from Asian and North American grooming techniques. Her focus is on creating a style that not only looks great but is also easy for pet owners to maintain. She takes the time to assess each dog's individual needs and preferences, tailoring her approach to suit their unique personality and physical characteristics.

When she's not grooming dogs, she enjoys spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking, as well as crocheting to create custom collars for her furry friends.

Caity
Dog Groomer

She/Her

After being in the hospitality industry most of her working life, Caity began grooming in 2018 and found a love for making dogs look like a real life teddy bears.  She also has a real passion for skin and coat.  Did you know dogs have cells in their skin that are directly related to their immune system? Healthy skin=healthy dog.  She is specializing in Asian Fusion,  but can’t resist a natural or double coated dog.  Being an owner of a rescue border collie mix,  it’s hard to resist a good de shed or big dog!  It's all about the dramatic before and afters.

You can check out her work on her Instagram or her TikTok

Jessica

Jessica has been grooming since 2018 after getting her first dog, a standard poodle named Walter. She began creative grooming on him by practicing a variety of themed styles and realized that it was her calling.

She has been recognized internationally and her story has been published in the popular UK newspaper The Mirror as well as other online publications. When she’s not colouring a dog into a movie character or exotic animal, Jessica enjoys a good de-shed on a double coat, and giving a dog a nice trim to stay fresh at home. She’s obsessed with all Poodles, Bull Terriers, and Bedlingtons, and appreciates the beauty in every single breed.
