Born and raised in Brazil, Talis moved to Canada in 2012 and soon after established Booboo Pet Grooming Services in Mimico.
Talis speaks fluent Brazilian Portuguese. He is a passionate artist in the field of pet grooming, and as proprietor of Booboo's and Chief Pet Groomer, Talis goes out of his way to always maintain a current knowledge of trends, products, techniques, and general pet care. He attends various advanced grooming seminars, which sometimes take him overseas like the ones at the Starwood Grooming School in Thailand.
A perfectionist at heart, Talis has combined his true passion for pet grooming with his artistic ‘eye’, driving him to be an exceptional and professional pet groomer. In addition, he has mastered the patience in handling very difficult and/or nervous dogs with a soothing energy bringing calmness to the grooming experience. Outside work, Talis is a sports and nature enthusiast.
Born and raised Canadian from small beach town Cobourg, Ontario, Natalie has been living in Toronto for the last 10 years and most recently moved to Mimico since October 2019.
She has always had a natural connection with animals and genuinely cares about your pets. As a doggy mom herself she has been so happy to join our team here at BooBoo’s since December 2019.
You can meet her at our reception desk! Friendly and upbeat she really enjoys interacting and taking care of our BooBoo’s clientele family.
Saori's background as a financial analyst had her globe trotting from Tokyo Japan, to London England, even to Sydney & Brisbane Australia. On those more stressful days, she would spend some of her precious time thinking about the healing effects pets have on people's mental state, environments, joy and most importantly, their quality of life. These musings of hers ultimately nurtured her profound respect for our fur friends.
Saori retired from the financial world, moved to Canada with her husband in 2008, and enrolled with Pampered Paws in Mississauga, to begin her studies in the art of animal hairdressing, dog grooming, dog anatomy, and studies of dog breeds. Saori received her well deserved, full certification upon completion of her courses and joined Booboo's as an occasional groomer, working mostly on the weekends.
Saori brings tender, calm patience to each of her precision grooming experiences. Her highly skilled, detailed grooms along with her gentle approach, help dogs relax and the end result is a calm and perfectly trimmed, cute little fur friend. Saori loves working with all dog breeds and is always happy to share her knowledge of pet care with her clients' humans whenever she's asked for advice or guidance.
Anna was born with a passion for all creatures and always knew that one day she would pursue a career working with animals.
Born and raised in the Ukraine, Anna is fluent in both Ukrainian and Russian, and one would believe that from her love of cats, she is also fluent in 'Meows'. It is not only because of her certification in Animal Care, but also because of her natural born instincts, her curiosity regarding animal mannerisms, her compassion for all creatures, and her quick, firm and gentle handling of all animals big and small, that we here at Booboo's have deemed Anna to be our Cat Whisperer.
Edward will temporarily be assisting us at Booboo's during the reopening stages of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Edward was born in Brazil and moved to Canada in 2002. His love of geography, thirst for travel and interest in meeting new people, are the foundation for his chosen career path as a Flight Attendant and he must be good at what he does because he's been flying the skies for the past 24 years! Edward also has a natural knack for languages and is fluent in Portuguese, English, French, Spanish and Italian.
Not surprising is that Edward's keen eye to know what a flight guest might need before they even ask for it, spills over into the animal world and is demonstrated by his compassion for our fur babies and their needs.
Elif is a lifelong lover of both animals and fine arts, so you can imagine how much she enjoys this line of work. She has a background in illustration and has worked in several different sectors of the pet care industry before deciding animal grooming was the perfect choice.
Elif has a calm, empathic personality that translates through her patience and sensitivity to an animal's needs. Her focus remains on safety and comfort- looking super cute is just a wonderful bonus!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
After much research for my American Eskimo Dogs, BooBoo's was the only groomer that professionally understood how to groom this breed. I have nothing but positive experiences in the 10 years we have been their client. Absolutely professional, well-trained, and a delight to be their customer.
Wonderful place, Clean, friendly smiley face staffs, great grooming job and reasonable prices.
We will be going back for sure ;)!
I am new to the neighbourhood and had my first visit here this week. Talis was so welcoming and helpful. The grooming that my dog had was one of the best ever, Talis did exactly what I requested and as a bonus, my pup was very happy and relaxed when I picked her up. Love this place and so grateful to have such a wonderful spot nearby!
