    Lisa Grills-Brak - 
    Scissoring 101 Demo

    Lisa Brak has had a long-time love and respect for animals having spent all of her youth being surrounded by pets and later owning and showing horses.  This segued into a lead surgical veterinary technician position with a mixed practice for close to 12 years, often managing and assisting in small and large animal surgery on farms and in clinic.

        When relocating to the beautiful Northumberland Hills, Lisa took a contract with a College creating and teaching the curriculum for the Professional Animal Worker course.

        In 2010 she launched Couture Dogs Grooming and Wellness Spa, a home-based business. While growing a steady clientele Lisa has raised 3 children without daycare exposing them to rural living, independent play and nurturing their own love for animals. Once two of the children were in school full-time Lisa was able to pursue and attend continuing education and certification opportunities within the grooming industry. This was also her introduction to grooming competitions. One competition in 2016 was all it took!

     The first show of 2019, as a brand new Open level competitor, Lisa won Best In Show with the beautiful English Springer Spaniel “Alicia”. Lisa feels very at home in the competition ring with all of her accomplished friends and colleagues.
