Meet Darren Lobo, an animal lover and a dedicated pet parent to his fourteen year old baby-dog “Kiwi”. Darren has always been passionate about animals and the outdoors since he can remember. Growing up in Mississauga, Ontario he went to Sheridan College for business administration, which led him to work in the insurance and finance world for 20 years.
Things shifted for Darren when he took a leap from the insurance industry to the Grooming Industry in 2021.
Darren is a Certified Pet Stylist and obtained his certification through The Pet Grooming Studio Academy which is registered through Ontario College programs. His focus is on making every groom as comfortable, safe and loving as possible, keeping the pet and pet parent needs as top priority. Darren is extremally passionate about being a pet care provider and continues to expand his expertise by pursuing his on-going education. He’s currently getting canine first aid training and fear free training and is looking at other courses for the future.
During the warmer summer months, you can find Darren walking Kiwi, golfing or lounging by the pool which balances out the cooler months. Come wintertime, Darren and Kiwi snuggle up by the fireplace and watch a great movie. Darren’s specialty is that he loves to groom all breeds as he finds each dog has it’s own personality, despite the natural characteristics of the breed.
