From a very young age, Rikki always felt a deep and special connection with animals of all shapes and sizes. Raised on a small farm in rural Selby, it did not take her long to realize that she could see no other future than one that was based around the creatures that had taught her so much responsibility and respect: dogs.
In 2010, Rikki moved to Kingston to pursue an opportunity at a local dog kennel where she spent 2 years sharpening her canine behaviour and grooming skills. During her time, Rikki found the most pleasure in the one-on-one time she spent bathing, brushing, and attending to the grooming needs of the dogs in her care. It was this that made her realize, that though she did enjoy being a kennel attendant, her true passion lay in grooming.
In the spring of 2012, after completing schooling, Rikki applied for an open position at Dirty Dog, and it was not long before she found herself part of an amazing team. Ever since, Rikki has been consistently pushing to expand her knowledge and skills; aiming for an end goal of becoming a certified Professional Pet Stylist.
