Owner, Head Pet Stylist & Cat Groomer

Shavon has been in the industry for over 12 years now, as well as having a lifelong background in dogs & everything to do with them! She has worked alongside some of the Hunter Valley’s best groomers, which eventually led her to her opening her own salon in 2017, right here in Singleton.

Being in an industry for so long leads to many areas of growth & passions changing, and Shavon’s desire to continue learning has lead her to a love for felines and is now the Hunter Valley’s only trained Cat Groomer with a Feline exclusive salon. Shavon is currently undertaking exams to become a fully Certified Feline Master Groomer with the National Cat Groomers Institute.

As well as cat grooming, Shavon has recently found a thrill in competition grooming with her Gundog Allegra, the American Cocker Spaniel (who you’ll see collecting the hair off the salon floor with her lush hair!) and scored a 2nd place ribbon in July 2023,
a 1st place in November 2023 and with a borrowed dog, another 2nd place ribbon also in November 2023.

During her years on the tools, Shavon has successfully studied, completed &/or attended:

🐾Pet First Aid (refreshed 2023)
🐾 10 Day Advanced Scissoring Course at The Grooming School with Christine Speerin
🐾 Certificate III in Animal Studies
🐾 Dog Behavioural Seminar at TAFE
🐾 Cert IV in Frontline Management
🐾 ProGroom Shampoo/Skincare Seminar(s)
🐾 Creative & Asian Fusion styling Seminars with Gracie Foo & May Wong
🐾 Asian Fusion & Poodle Seminars with Prue Hammond
🐾Bichon Breed Styling with Christine Speerin
🐾Hand-stripping workshops
🐾Private training with some of Australia’s top groomers
🐾 Handling Dangerous Dog Statement of Attainment with Steve Austin
🐾Cat grooming & handling seminars and private training with CFMG Sarah Warner

Shavon is confident in all aspects of grooming, whether it be Hand Stripping, Cat Grooming, or just a Basic Shave off. Currently, her fave grooms are teddy trims on cats (also known as plush or comb cuts), hand-strips and gundog breed standard grooms.

You’ll catch Shavon in her own private cat salon 90% of the time now, or if she’s not in the salon, she’s trying to entertain two toddlers, or stay on top of the grooming of her own animals; Mani the Toy Poodle, Allegra the American Cocker, Opie the Rottweiler, Nova & Athena the Siamese and Pookie the Persian.💕


Senior Pet Stylist & Assistant Salon Manager

Caitlin has been a part of the team for just over 3 years now and has grown to become an incredible stylist and Assistant Salon Manager.

Caitlin’s passion for grooming began as a client of ours with her own two Cavoodle babes, Albie & Molly who regularly sported fun haircuts and funky colours. Caitlin is our go-to stylist for all colour clients now!

With a caring nature, and drive for knowledge in the industry, Caitlin has successfully completed:

We are so blessed to have Caitlin as part of the team at Oasis Pet Styling and love watching her skills blossom!


Senior Pet Stylist & Salon Manager

Maddi has been a part of the Oasis squad for just under 3 years, and it’s hard to imagine a time without her here!

Maddi has always been passionate about animals of all species, shapes and sizes which is why she has grown into being such an amazing animal handler, stylist and now salon manager.

While she is the ‘jack-of-all-trades’ and often goes between dog and cat grooming, Mad’s absolutely adores a big, satisfying de-shed, which is why you’ll often find her out the back with all of our Husky, Malamute, Newfy, etc clients; she loves a challenge when it comes to big,hairy, dirty dogs!

In a relatively short career Maddi has already accomplished so much, with many certifications/seminars under her belt.
Maddi has successfully undertaken/completed:

🐶 Pet First Aid (refreshed 2023)
🐶 Asian Fusion Styling Seminar with Prue Hammond (x2)
🐶 Asian Fusion/Teddy Styling Seminar with May Wong
🐶 Bichon Breed styling seminar with Christine Speerin
🐶 Cat grooming & handling seminars, as well as 1:1 training with Sarah Warner (CFMG)
🐶 10 Day Advanced Scissoring course at The Grooming School
🐶 Pro Groom Shampoo & Skin Seminar via ZOOM with the founder of ProGroom

Plus a whole heap more planned for 2024!

Maddi excels at everything she does but has a special place in her heart for sight hounds… (please bring her all the Borzoi’s, Saluki’s, Afghans and Greyhounds!)

Without Maddi, our days would never run smooth. We’re so blessed and grateful to have such a kind, compassionate and hard working soul amongst our team!

So far, Grace has successfully completed/undertaken:

🐶 Pet First Aid (refreshed 2023)
🐶 Asian Fusion Styling Seminar with Prue Hammond (x3)
🐶 Asian Fusion/Teddy Styling Seminar with May Wong
🐶 Bichon Breed styling seminar with Christine Speerin

Plus a whole heap of seminars, training and competitions already lined up for 2024!

Grace has biiiig love for all of our terrier friends and anything that is scruffy or wirey, but she also has lots of love for traditional poodle trims and she absolutely slays Schauzer trims!

We’re so thrilled to have this wonderful woman on our team of talented stylists!

Danielle has been a part of the team since January 2023 , and comes with a background in most things dog, as well as a certification in grooming. 🙌

Receptionist & Salon Assistant

Kristy is the newest addition to the Oasis Squad and has become such a valuable asset to the team!

Kristy comes with a decade of knowledge in the animal industry and is a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse, which means she never shy’s away from a challenge; whether that be a spicy kitty or a wriggly puppy, often gives the girls reassuring advice when it comes to animals with medical issues, keeps us grounded and is all-round, the perfect person to become the face of Oasis!

Kristy runs everything out the front now; she is often the person you will be speaking with about enquiries and bookings over the phone, or the smiling face greeting you when you bring your babes in and pick them back up.

We’re so grateful to have such a kind, compassionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable person on our team and organising our lives on the daily!
