Groomer - Laura Leigh

Laura Leigh Merswolke

After training under Master Groomers and graduating with top marks from B-Pro Grooming Academy, Laura opened her own salon with a focus on providing a high level of service excellence and professional results. 

Always passionate about animals, she makes sure that her groomers diligently display the same care and concern for their four legged clients as they would for their own beloved pets. 

Trained to professionally groom all breeds and highly skilled in hand scissoring techniques, Laura is both a Senior Groomer and the salon owner. As such, Laura works tirelessly to ensure that her and her team offer their very best on behalf of their valued clients.  Laura is proud to see that her salon’s client base has significantly grown in recent years primarily from referral, which is the very best compliment!

Groomer - Kala Tipin

Kyla Taplin

After successfully graduating from the University of Waterloo with a BA in HR Management, Kyla realized her career path should instead reflect her deep love for animals.  She subsequently began her training and graduated from the Grooming Academy.  Working in grooming salons for over a decade has allowed Kyla to spend her days caring for her clients’ pets and she prides herself on making their grooming experience as stress free and comfortable as possible. 

At the end of her day, her rescued pets at home, 3 dogs and 2 cats, are waiting to greet her.  Kyla constantly strives to further her industry knowledge and has also graduated from Mohawk College with honors in the Veterinary Management Program.
