Katie Macdonald is the newest member of our professional grooming team. She comes to us highly educated through The Alberta School of Dog Grooming and is registered with Canadian Professional Pet Stylists. This hardworking momma has proven herself “in the field” running her own home-based business since 2017, building a reputation among her clientele as a compassionate, caring and dedicated professional with an eye for detail and a passion for her craft. All this while caring for her adorable 2 yr old, Carter and “holdin’ down the fort” for her equally hardworking hubby, Dylan.
Katie fell in love with grooming at an early age, after volunteering for work experience at a local salon and is as dedicated to continuing education and animal welfare as the rest of our team studying breed profiles and perfecting her technique, learning about and practicing pet safe colouring and creative techniques and working with local rescues to pamper deserving pooches when the need arises.
And as if that isn’t enough to have you beating down our doors to book in with this seasoned pro, her hobby and not so hidden talent? OPERA SINGING!! That’s right, Cross Cuts karaoke just got a MAJOR upgrade. And although Terri may be licking her wounds at getting upstaged, I am sure the dogs will be relieved to get a break from being serenaded by her musical stylings…which has been known to attract more than one stray cat.
Katie’s additional training/ certifications include:
- Pet First Aid/ CPR
- Special Needs Dog Handling
- Canine Massage Certification
