Locally Owned and Operated by Liz Macpherson, Veterinary Technician
At Caygeon Cats & Canines Grooming we are immensely proud of our roots. We started this business from the ground up and we wouldn’t be where we are today without the loyalty of pet owners from the area who continue to trust us with their beloved companions.
My life has revolved around animals for as long as I can remember. I was allowed to choose a kitten from a neighbour's "accident" for my 4th birthday present. We also had all the usual pocket pets and family dogs as well. During high school, I worked for a local veterinarian who was one of the first to look after exotic animals as well as the usual clientele of cats and dogs. My Mom walked in one day as we were x-raying a full-grown male lion! I graduated from Centralia College in 1984 as a Veterinary Technician. I then worked for 3 years with Dr. Gary Landsberg in Thornhill, who was quickly making a name for himself as a veterinary behaviourist. He is now a renowned speaker, author, radio and TV personality, and behavioural consultant.
My dream had been to work with large animals as well, and I left Thornhill to work at a mixed (small and large animal) practice in Nova Scotia. This was a dream job, working in the clinic with small animals, out on the farms with cattle, horses, etc, and with wild animals from the Shubenacadie Wildlife Park right next to the clinic. They didn't have any local groomers in the area, so I branched out and did quite a bit of grooming when I had the time. I welcomed my first purebred dogs to my furry family while there - a Standard Poodle and a Dalmatian. These two introduced me to a whole new world of fun things to do with dogs! We tried conformation showing, obedience, tracking, and agility. The Poodle was actually in the SuperDogs show in Halifax one year!
I stayed in Nova Scotia for 6 years, but unfortunately my mother was ill, and I felt I needed to be here for her, so moved back to Ontario. I settled in Bobcaygeon to be close to my parents and worked at Three Islands Veterinary Services for the first 6 years here, with veterinary technician responsibilities as well as pet grooming.
In April 1999, I opened Caygeon Canines. It has been a perfect fit for me, allowing me to interact daily with people and their furry companions, and giving me the flexibility to be very active with my own dogs. I have raised and trained Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers since 2002, actively competing with them in conformation, obedience, and retriever tests, with a little bit of agility for fun. You can see more about my dogs at Rowantide Kennels.
I have always loved training my own dogs and dreamed of helping others strengthen the relationship with their dogs. I am now offering private obedience lessons, and hopefully next year outdoor group lessons from April to October - dogs acquiring skills to navigate the real world :o))
