Profile: My name is Cheong King Lin, known to friends as King ( obvious for my size ), owner and operator of Dog Stylists. I developed my love for animals when I was a child. I would hide at our backyard for an entire afternoon to accompany our family guide dog- a German Shepherd. I was deeply saddened and cried a whole week upon its passing away. At its burial, I even offered my food at his grave in our back yard. I started to take care of a Samoyed when I was lodging with a Canadian family during my study in Toronto. It was then I begin to learn the actual caring and loving of pets as part of the family members. It was until I started working in Hong Kong that I self-owned a Shih Tze, Chow Chow, Golden Retriever, Old English Sheep Dog, Lhasa Apso, Miniture Schnauzer, Fox Terrier,Miniture Poodle, and Pomeranian etc. My love for dogs just grew stronger until I started a Pet Shop in Happy Valley, Hong Kong in 1991 and offered pet grooming, pet accessories, pet boarding and puppies sales in our pet shop. I learned to groom all breeds of dogs, no matter their temperament, size or breed and take care of them when owners are unable to during they absence. This helped me to understand dogs in a better light. After working in Hong Kong ofr more then 2 years, I decided to come back to Singapore my home town to my family's trade of business in property market and became a property consultant. I turned back to my first love, dogs, after working as a property agent for 15 years. I started to enquire about grooming course and schools in Singapore and overseas and I decided to go ahead with the training. I endured months of very intensive training that prepared me for all types of scenarios and situations you can be thrown in as a groomer. I learned to groom all breeds of dogs, no matter their temperament or size of breed, from a Canadian trained IPG certified experienced Groomer in Singapore.I continue to advance with overseas training with Japan-trained and certified grooming judge of Taiwan and Japan Kennel Associations for show dog grooming. Having been trained by two well known groomers has helped me to adapt and provide for differenet types of clients who may differing style preferences and I now can better suit their needs. Beside my grooming training and practice operation in Singapore , Hong Kong, Shanghai and China, I have also provided Pet Sitting services to dogs and cats in Singapore. I strive to run a clean and safe salon where your pet can spend the day getting the best treatment possible. With my training and love for dogs I assure that I will do my best to meet your needs and expectations. My shop is an "Open Concept" style and has earned comments from our clients. Dog Stylists, " Quality care for your dog!"
