TLC Doggie Spa
by Canadian Canine Master Stylist - Gabriela Duran

Because your dog deserves the best!

Gabriela Duran, Certified Canadian Canine Master Stylist

I am Gabriela and I have loved animals since day 1 of my life, I have been fortunate enough to share a great part of my life with dogs.
Over the years I have been involved with the local kennel clubs of the cities I have lived in and this has given me the opportunity to show my dogs in conformation as well as to compete with them in agility and obedience.
I have also been involved with rescue organizations and was one of the Therapy dogs evaluator for Saint John ambulance while I lived in Ontario. and  recently I got certified as a CPR and First Aider for pets. Why do I mention all this?  because all this has broaden my understanding of dogs. 
 I have been grooming my own dogs and maintaining their coats for the shows for the past 18 years and a little over 10  years ago I took the plunge into making grooming dogs a full time career.  I owned a grooming and boarding business in Ontario and when we moved to Calgary I had the opportunity to work with some of the best groomers in the area. now I can offer you all the experience I have accumulated to make your fur baby visit to the spa one of the best times they have ever had. 
I work on a one on one bases and in a cage free environment. This, I  believe,  makes dogs more relaxed. When I have dogs that come in pairs one gets groomed while the other one roams around and relaxes. 
Must doggies are ready to go in a couple hours or less.  and yes they do get pee breaks after grooming as well as treats if they are allowed to have some.  I hope I have the opportunity to serve you soon!
