Mayuka joined Pets in the City in 2011 when she traveled to Australia to study English. Prior to that Mayuka worked for 9 years in vet clinics as a nurse and groomer after studying Vet Nursing, Dog Grooming and Dog Training in Japan. Mayuka has focused on dog grooming as she loves to be able to enhance the quality of life of dogs and to make them look and feel beautiful; she feels that a shaved coat can do wonders for lightness and feeling cooler, especially in summer. Whilst Mayuka currently has no pets she has previously owned 2 lovely beagles and a beautiful cat. In her spare time she enjoys cycling, yoga, bush walking and reading and was a keen scuba diver and snowboarder in Japan.
