Millie Wong
Owner & Lead Dog Groomer
Growing up as a child I have always loved all types of animals – dogs, cats, and small animals. I aspired to become a veterinarian, and studied arts and sciences at the University of Guelph. While working part time at a dog grooming salon, I realized I loved that I was able to combine the arts and my love for animals – with dog grooming! I then pursued this interest by attending Pampered Paws Grooming School located in Toronto to get my Professional Animal Stylist certificate in 2013. I have a keeshond named Nova which you will probably see when you come to visit Poochies Paradise.
Professional Dog Groomer
Jennifer has been grooming dogs for more than 6 years and she loves making dogs look their best. She has a Weimaraner named Alfred and a Goldendoodle named Qawi.
Assistant Dog Groomer
Jaylah has been a wonderful addition on our team with her experience as a vet tech assistant. She loves animals and has a rescue dog named Bailey and a cat named Bow.
Bella is the queen of the salon and she will demand for attention as you drop off your pet. She can often be found at our front desk basking in the sun or stealing our lunches. She is comfortable with dogs and will let them gently sniff her, making her the first kitty interaction for most dogs!
Professional Dog Greeter
Nova is a keeshond whose sole purpose in life is to eat, sleep, and snuggle. She’s quiet until there’s a vistor at the door and she has the most gentle soul. Dogs that board with Millie all love Nova because she is so calm and make them feel right at home.
