Our Staff

Dog and cat groomer KelownaMeet Crystal Barclay is the owner of Barkley’s Muttland. IPG Certified Professional Pet Groomer!

I come from a long line of animal loving people. My family were dairy farmers in Alberta, and instilled in me the neighborly friendliness of a down-home, country-style upbringing. IPG Certified Professional Pet Groomer.
 
Although I did not live on the family farm, I spent much of my life there, tending and observing cattle, horses, chickens, as well as many, many dogs and cats.
 
My love for animals only increased as I entered the professional field of pet grooming, and I learned how I can enhance not only their appearance but overall health and well-being.

From the beginning

 
At the age of 15 I was kindly taken under the wing of a successful, professional, dog show handler and given a glimpse of what life as a “dog person” is like and loved it and still do, 16 years later.
 
Professional grooming has been my life wherever I go, including the Caribbean, Alberta,and 3 BC cities. Finally the opportunity has presented itself to open my own salon!
 
I am very proud to present Barkley’s Muttland!  Dog, Cat grooming service in Kelowna BC. Oh, and doggie daycare too. We love to pamper your dogs while you’re busy. 
 
I promise that at Barkley’s I will give the best care possible to your pet, using my cumulative years of knowledge and expertise to the full.

 

Once introduced to the grooming world, there was no turning back!

I am continually immersing myself into the latest techniques and styles to better my work and your pets experience. Most recently attended the famouse MasterGroom Canada, including three full days of seminars, a trade show, and multiple competitions!

Enjoyed creating unique looks tailored to each pet, and excel at creative Asian fusion styles, scissored tidies, and doodle trims.

Meet Megan (Groomer)

Dog and cat groomer KelownaHello everyone! My name is Megan, and I am currently apprenticing at Barkleys Muttland under Crystals fine tutelage! I have been an animal lover my entire life. Being brought up alongside family pets, I don’t remember a time where they weren’t a big part of my life. I currently own two pure bred Balinese cats, Piper and Sullivan, and a Border Collie Blue Heeler cross named Spot.

I have business school background, as well as a love for the arts. If I’m not hanging out with my furry friends, you can often see me knitting, crocheting, weaving or doing macrame on my Instagram page @knitsandbones. But don’t worry! They often get featured alongside my creations.

Loving, quality pet care and attention has always been my goal, and it is what I strive to provide. Healthy happy pets add so much value and richness into our lives. I am dedicated to learning the very best ways to help make their lives as carefree as possible. Sneaking in cuddles during the day isn’t so bad either!

 

From then on I have continued to learn something new almost everyday to help me further my success as a pet groomer. 

 

Meet Elisha (Groomer)

Dog groomer kelownaMy name is Elisha and I’ve been grooming for 8 years now. In 2010, I moved to Australia to pursue my passion for working with animals! It was there that I was lucky to work with a senior groomer as an apprentice, during my 12 month stay in Adelaide, Australia. I have since moved back to my hometown of Kelowna and have spent 7 years fine tuning my grooming skills here in the lovely Okanagan!

When I’m not playing with my fluffy clients, I enjoy spending as much time as I can outdoors. I love travelling, hiking, hot yoga, swimming and exploring with our family;my husband, son and dogs! (A silly yellow lab and my bossy Shar Pei) My compassion and easygoing nature makes for comfortable and happy dogs that look forward to their next visit!.

 

I literally fell in LOVE with being with the animals and making them clean, comfy and happy.
