My name is Birgit Fast Johnston. I am the owner of Cuttingedge Pet Services.
I was born and raised in the Niagara Region and have lived here most of my life. My life has always included pets; mostly dogs and cats but also fish, mice, guinea pigs, birds and even a garter snake. My dogs are not "just" pets... they are my 4 legged children. My husband and I have many poodles that share our home.
Since 2003 I have worked and volunteered with animals. I have opened my home to many cats and dogs as they await their forever home. I am also a professional dog groomer, skilled in Anesthesia-Free K9 teeth cleaning, and CKC registered breeder of Small Standard (Moyen) and Miniature poodles.
I learned how to groom professionally under the direction of the owners of Best Friends and Raina's in St. Catharines. Five months after starting to groom I learned how to clean dog's teeth without the use of Anasthesia.
I had my first litter of Standard Poodles in December of 2014 and have never looked back.
I had my first litter of Miniature Poodles September 2017.
