MEET THE TEAM
OWNER & Certified Canine STYLIST
Founder of Cheeky Chops Pet Salon and YK Sitter, Cameron has been working professionally with animals for over six years. Her love and joy for dogs made it a natural decision to expand her knowledge, complete the canine stylist program and open an exclusive pet salon, servicing her community and spreading love to the dogs of Yellowknife. Cameron believes in building trust and communicating with your dogs through calm and confident energy to make them feel safe, show them grooming is no big deal and to always honor and take care of them, while doing the same for their skin, coat and overall well being.
"Grooming has brought me so much joy and confidence. I want to give back that same joy and confidence to the dogs! It’s not just looking fabulous, but feeling fabulous! By focusing first on the experience the dogs have with us, creating a cozy space for the dogs, choosing only the highest quality products that will enrich their skin and coat making them feel amazing, bringing together a team of talented groomers who are also of service and gratitude to the dogs with us and committing to continuing education, we will grant your pup with the cutest styles and the freedom to be their best selves to go along with the very best life they are already living with you! I'm so happy and excited to have you and your dogs along with me for this beautiful journey!”

“There are quite a few career choices for heavy duty animal lovers such as myself, and it took me many years of experimenting with other dog related fields before I finally found my passion for grooming. Grooming suits my personality perfectly in that I get to work with wonderful animals all day in a personal and creative manner. I’m very excited to meet and work with Yellowknifers and their furry family members as I continue to enjoy and explore this beautiful part of the world!”
Brook was the first team member to join Cameron in Cheeky Chops Pet Salon, starting as a Groomer Assistant learning the importance of prep work for a gorgeous haircut. Her love for dogs and excellent prep work has led her to a new start as a Junior Groomer. Brooks' natural flair for the arts is already showing through her training and there is much to look forward to as she builds her skill and style!
“I have always had a lifelong love for animals, and now after caring for my family, I can finally fulfill my passion to work with clients of the fluffy variety. I’m passionate about big and small animals (I cannot pass one without giving them love and affection!) It’s this passion that makes me an asset to the team. I’m also a devoted pet owner, which helps me connect with your pets needs.”
Jocelyn started her grooming journey through self taught training, grooming her own dogs Shakespeare and Juno when the service was unavailable in her town. She began providing grooming services to pet parents in Fort Simpson before moving to Yellowknife. Through her love for animals and making a difference for them her skill as a groomer has grown into beautiful haircuts that make any dog look cute! You may also recognize her as your pet sitter with YK Sitter!
“I am so excited to offer my grooming services with Cheeky Chops Pet Salon. I enjoy helping dogs stay healthy with proper grooming and I take the time to provide a clean professional cut for your animal in a non-stressful environment. I strive for them to come to enjoy their spa day treatments and look forward to seeing them over and over again!”
Gianna is our Groomer Assistant, supporting groomers with whatever help they need and preparing dogs for their stylish haircuts. Gianna ensures the dogs are perfectly clean and pampered through their spa bath. Gianna is full of love and showers it onto each pet she meets.
“I love animals in all their quirkiness! Getting to know your puppers through the grooming experience is an adventure and I very much enjoy it and look forward to it. Meeting a different dog everyday and adapting to their needs is part of the challenge and I face it head on”

CHEEKY CHOPS VALUES
All first-time clients receive a consultation and ALL clients get a session report, so you're up to speed on how your pup did and have personal recommendations on what to do between appointments.
Relationships are at the heart of everything at Cheeky Chops. I'm here to serve those who take as much pride in their dog's coat and overall well-being as much as I will as their pet stylist.
QUALITY > QUANTITY
My focus is ALWAYS on quality over quantity. I will never rush through your dogs as if they're 'just another client.' I take pride in each groom & enjoy the process of each new pup friend I gain.
EASE OF USE
Returning clients have the option of adding a Pet Taxi to their grooming appointment, so they don't have to worry about finding time for transportation to & from the salon.
It's not basic with Cheeky Chops. Choose your professional grooming style - from breed standard cuts to beginner Asian fusion style, or any other custom request and we'll make it happen.
From the products and the tools to the sanitary protocols and professional training, Cheeky Chops ONLY uses, follows, and learns from the best of the best. That's what your pup deserves.
