She believes passionately in the welfare and protection of all animals and the environment. The Earth friendly design of the salon and it's day to day operations of the salon reflect this.


"Our goal at The Dapper Dog is not only a beautiful groom (that goes without saying) but also that your pooch loves coming for their groom. Most regulars run in the door excited for the attention of their pamper session."

Kath has a beautiful Miniature Schnauzer called, Alba who loves going on adventures to the beach and forest, and meeting new people. An adventure lover, when Kath is not at the salon you will find her out in nature or searching down her next adrenaline rush.
