For over 14 years, our dog groomer Emma has been looking after pets and their humans all over Australia, after receiving professional pet groomer training all over Australia, and now in Aberfeldie. We provide a unique one-on-one positive pet grooming session in our home salon, where each dog grooming session is tailored to what your pup needs.
Hello, I'm Emma, the owner and groomer at The Kind Canine. I've worked with animals (mainly dogs) my entire adult life, in shelters, veterinary nursing, fostering, training and pet grooming.
My number one passion is making grooming as positive an experience as possible, for the clients, owners and myself. As well as having trained as a Delta Certified dog trainer, I also am one of the very few Certified Fear Free Dog Groomers in Australia. Outside of work, I'm a giant nerd, studying a degree in Psychology and running a twitch stream, as well as attempting to play the piano!
Scooter is my 9 year old Papillon. He was a very stubborn puppy and the reason I became so interested in behavioural training. Many days I would walk around the house with him attacking my feet! He's lovely now and considers himself the business concierge. He's eager to meet you and scam a treat :)
Daisy is my 8 year old rescue Maltese x Shih Tzu. She came from a very loving home but unfortunately was very anxious and had a lot of separation anxiety due to losing her home of 6 years. We are still working on her barking but she is leagues ahead of where she was, and would also love a gentle pat when you come by for an appointment!
Tucker the rescue JRT x Corgi was my first dog, and was luckily bombproof as I made every mistake possible with him. He taught me calmness, patience and to be grateful for every day. He passed at 15 a couple of years ago and still inspires me in everything I do.
Bambi the Pomeranian mix was the reason I became a groomer. She was seized from a hoarder and was very psychologically damaged. I hated leaving her in a crate and decided to learn professional grooming for myself to help her. The rest is history. She had so much personality and was such a darling, I miss her every day.
