Sherry Indelicato : Owner / Manager

Sherry Indelicato

Owner / Manager

Well, here I am over 20 years later and I can honestly say I am still blessed to be in love with my career. I have a successful salon that I have owned and managed for the last 10 years. The reason behind our success has always been and will always be my amazing talented staff and our loyal amazing clients .

Even though I don’t groom much any more, I still very much get to enjoy my craft by teaching students and supervising apprentices. It takes me back to the basics and when a student is learning and really excited, it truly reminds me of why I am where I am today.

I would like to thank all past , present and future clients for entrusting us with the safety and care of their beloved fur babies. K'9 Designz mission statement has and will always be SAFETY, AND GROOMING FOR QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY

Karly Harel : Senior Groomer

Karly Harel

Senior Groomer

My name is Karly Harel.

When I was 18 and fresh out of high school, I tried grooming my own pets with a dull pair of hair clippers, unsuccessfully. It was then I decided that grooming was my future career and started schooling at JKL, graduating with honours and finishing with an apprenticeship shortly after. 10 years have flown by, and the love of animals and sculpture have never faded. Who wouldn't love working with animals all day!

I recently got married and started a little family, having to leave K'9 Designz for many months for my 1st born. When I returned, it felt like I hadn't missed a beat. With a large, calm, work atmosphere, and a great boss and co-workers, I couldn't imagine being a part of any other salon. Thank you K'9 Designz for being awesome and having me on board for the pet pampering!

Loralyn Alford : Senior Groomer

Loralyn Alford

Senior Groomer

Hi I'm Loralyn.

I started dog grooming years ago while looking for a career change. A friend of mine found a stray dog and asked me to help brush it out. I just decided then that I should look into becoming a professional dog groomer and I have been in and out of the dog grooming scene ever since, 10 plus years!

Although I have never owned a dog as a pet, I've always enjoyed animals and love the creative aspects of grooming. I started at K'9 Designz almost 3 years ago and love the atmosphere of the shop. We're a real team. Outside of work, I enjoy riding horses, painting, church and keeping active. I'm excited to be a part of the K'9 Designz dog grooming team!

Julia Atkinson : Apprentice

Julia Atkinson

Apprentice

In the year of 2014 I went through a series of life changes, one being hospitalized for 10 days due to an unexpected illness. After months of recovery I decided to embark on a new path in my life, and chose to study in a career that is defined by two of my loves: dogs and creativity.
I began training with Sherry in September of 2014. Grooming is so much more than I expected. Before I began I did not realize the skill levels a person needed to groom well, not to mention safety practices to keep both dog and groomer safe. I did however enjoy pet grooming as much as I thought I would.
Currently I am apprenticing under Loralyn and Sherry and thoroughly enjoying every minute of it! K'9 Designz is a wonderful environment to learn in, with all of the groomers being supportive and  a wealth of knowledge to learn from. What a fantastic place to work in and what a wonderful career to have!
