Trainee Pet Stylist
Libby is the freshest face of our team, only beginning her career with us, as a Christmas Casual, in October 2019. Her passion, love & willingness to learn has landed her a full time job as a Trainee Pet Stylist.
Libby is currently studying her Certificate III in Pet Grooming through TAFE.
As she’s still learning the ropes, she hasn’t quite figured out what her passion is for grooming, however she keeps heading in the direction of being a Poodle Fanatic & she is a Pro at Deshedding dogs!
When Lib isn’t in the salon, she’s out socialising or hanging with her two Pomeranian Pals – Lennie & George.
Junior Salon Assistant
If you’ve ever been to the salon on a Saturday morning, you know exactly who this over enthusiastic, smiling face is!
Kaitlin, more commonly known as Kaito, has been an asset to our little team since 2018 & we’re forever dreading the day she leaves us for University.
Kaitlin is a full blown animal lover & hopes to further her career with animals as a Vet! In the salon she is our little gopher girl – she does everything from bathing & drying the dogs, cleaning right through to checking dogs in & out.
Between work & studying, Kaitlin is out and about camping with her family or at home with her two Cavaliers – Maggie & Charli.
