From the beginning
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)
Hello 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)
My 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.
