About Us

Kaitlin Rathgeber
Owner/Groomer

I grew up in the city of Saskatoon; however I spent many weekends and holidays at my grandparent’s farm. It was there that I developed a love of not just dogs but many other animals. From goats, sheep, chickens, bunnies, cows, cats, dogs, and horses; I loved them all! However, I took a particular interest in dogs and horses. From the age of 10 I started horseback riding and have continued to love it ever since. I have been living with dogs since the day I was born; our first family dog was Mikey, a Rottweiler/Collie cross.

It was February of 2015 when I started to look up grooming schools in Saskatchewan. I had been working various other jobs and decided it was time to do something I loved, working with dogs! I found The Apex Academy in Regina and enrolled shortly thereafter graduating in August of 2015 as a certified Master Pet Stylist. I now enjoy grooming all dogs big or small in my mobile.

I currently live in Saskatoon and have two canine friends (along with a few others); Dixie, a 10 year old Sheltie and Riya, a 6 year old Chihuahua cross King Charles spaniel.
