Our groomer Tine grew up in Germany. She has always enjoyed dogs and loves walking them (and is available for dog walking ;-P). Tine previously worked at a kennel where she bathed and cared for furry friends. She started with Kristi's in 2012 as a bather and has since become a groomer. Tine has attended many classes at the Atlanta Pet Fair to expand her knowledge on our industry. Tine is married with one daughter and, in addition to working at Rawls Auto Auction on Tuesdays, takes care of a backyard menagerie that includes pigs, goats, chickens, fish, cats and dogs. A soccer enthusiast, she plays when she can. While Tine does a beautiful job with all dogs, she especially enjoys working with big dogs.
Nia is a graduate of Gilbert High School and a current student at Midlands Tech. She is an an avid dog lover and has been keeping her furry friends beautiful since 2012 with Kristi's Fancy K-9's.
Hello! I'm Kim. I have been working with Kristi since 2014. I have always loved animals. Just ask anyone who knows me! During high school I took a college course on pet grooming and graduated with a diploma from the International Correspondence School. In 2003 I did an apprenticeship and went on to open my own business here in Lexington (Kim's Doggy Day Spa). I have 13 years of experience working with animals. I enjoy grooming dogs of all breeds and have recently started grooming cats! I enjoy grooming part time so I have lots of free time to spend with my husband Henry and children Kassidy and Alex. I look forward to caring for your pets and making them look fabulous!
I started as a bather in 2014. Later that year, with Kristi and Sheila as mentors I started grooming. They taught me to pay attention to detail, and above all, treat the dogs with respect. My favorite dogs to groom are terriers, poodles, and pomeranians. I am also a freelance software developer, but choose to work with dogs because of the joy they bring me every day.
Lindsey Bather Specialist
I've been working at Kristi's Fancy K-9's since 2011. I started off as a bather specialist and am now learning how to style the pups to perfection. I really enjoy being around all the dogs everyday.
