Lisa Lefebvre - Lead Groomer
She began her career with animals as a kennel helper at a veterinary clinic when she was young. In the late 1980's, she started to see her future career involve grooming (her artistic side). Her path led her to work for a busy, talented groomer where she learned to hone in on her skills at the Poodle Studio in Toronto. She also worked for her Poodle mentor - world renowned Dog Show Judge, Len Harfield. This led Lisa into the realm of dog shows and breeding which included showing Standard Poodles, Miniature Schnauzers, Australian Shepherds, Wired-Haired Dachshunds, Shelties, Labs, and of course the Miniature Poodle.
Lisa is certified in the non-sporting group by the NDGA of America and was able to attain 37th place in Canada in 1995.
Lisa's lover of dogs has lead her to be involved with many grooming, showing, breeding, obedience training, agility, and St. John's Ambulance dogs. She moved to Peterborough in 1990, where she has been ever since - running her own successful grooming business while raising 2 sons.
Lisa's career path has now lead her to be involved with Brealey Drive Pet Spa as it is a lovely grooming facility with an amazing atmosphere and supportive staff. She is directing her efforts at teaching others the amazing art of animal grooming to carry on her legacy.
She currently enjoys time with her new Mini Poodle, Fifi, who she is looking forward to showing in the near future. She also enjoys her other fur babies Barbie, Jada and her horse, Levi.
