Meet Kayla (Owner/Groomer)

Off The Leash Pet Grooming

Since a little girl Kayla's always had a love and a passion for animals. Originally enrolled after graduation to become a dental assistant, she took her family dog in to get groomed and walked out with the opportunity to enrol in a program to become a groomer. To date Kayla is a Certified Canine Master Groomer, Certified Feline Master Groomer and Certified in Pet First Aid. She began grooming in 2012 and has never looked back.

Although she grooms all breeds of dogs and cats, Kayla's specialities have always been aimed more towards aggressive and timid animals. She is always up for a challenge and her calming nature will make your fur baby feel at ease in no time and they will leave feeling pampered and special.

She is inseparable with her dog Duke, a beagle shepherd, also the operations manager at the salon! Alongside Duke and Kayla's adventures you'll find her supportive boyfriend Logan and his dog Cooper, a pitbull staffy. On days off you'll find the four of them outdoors engaging in something exciting or spending time with family. With the help of her family her dreams of owning her own shop became a reality. Through the late nights, renovations, sweat, tears and laughs "Off The Leash, Pet Grooming, Paws down the best in town!"

Casey Bechard (Certified Groomer & Shop Manager)

Off The Leash Pet Grooming

My passion for animals made my career goal simple. I wanted to help and be around as many animals as I could (sounds fun right). I got my first vet clinic job out of high school and enjoyed it so much I wanted to learn more so I enrolled in the Veterinary Medical Receptionist program at Olds College. A year after finishing the course I wanted to try something new that also allowed me to still work and be around animals. That's when I found Off the Leash. Kayla willingly took me in to be a part of their team and it's been the best experience. At the shop, you'll most likely find me bathing your little fur babies and playing with the dogs in daycare.

Alongside me you'll find my buddy Marlo, a German Shepard mix. On the off days, you can catch us at the farm working with the horses and hanging out with all the other animals, while still making time for family and friends who never fail to support me and all my life goals.

Taylor has always had a love for animals but hasn't always had the opportunity to work with them, what started as going out on a whim ended up being a life changing career and she hasn't looked back since. Taylor has 2 years of experience working with dogs of all ages and all breed types. She loves all types of dogs and is willing to rise to the occasion for any pet that needs special care and assistance. She demonstrates empathy and care for detail in every groom and wants to make sure each pooch and their parent leaves with a smile on their face.

Taylor is committed to learning and growing with her grooming career, she's always open to new techniques and styles. You'll find Taylor and Jynny, her fun loving staffy mix, hanging at the shop Monday to Friday and when she's not at the shop you can find her checking out the nearest parks, trails and camping spots on the off days.

Taylor is thrilled to be working with the OTL team and is looking forward to building a bond with each pet that walks through those doors.
