Kingsly Tan

Director & Principal

Our Principal Kingsly Tan is a certified master groomer by the Singapore Kennel Club and an A class groomer with the Kennel Club of Taiwan (KCT). Despite having achieved recognition, Kingsly believes in constantly upgrading himself and developing new grooming techniques to share with his students. Always seeking to improve himself, our principal is also active in conformation dog shows – poodles, bichons and miniature schnauzers are his speciality. Kingsly has bagged many awards to date, including Best in Show.

In his youth, Kingsly travelled extensively, studying the art of pet grooming in different countries – Canada, the United States, China and Taiwan, to name a few. In his studies he discovered that pet grooming was very different in the East and the West. Pet groomers in Canada, America and Europe had a far better understanding of pet anatomy and body profiles, and held themselves to very high standards of workmanship. Pet groomers in the East possessed superior skills with their scissors – their scissoring was far more intricate and meticulous than their western counterparts.

Kingsly has been invited by Artero to conduct grooming seminar in Spain and Malaysia. Artero Jornadas Spain is the biggest grooming show internationally where all the top groomers around the world are invited.

In 2015, Kingsly was appointed to become a grooming judge by the Singapore Kennel club and had since been invited by the Malaysia Kennel association and Korea Kennel Federation to judge in their grooming contest and examination.

Having studied under both traditions of pet grooming, Kingsly put together what he had learned, and developed a special, unique technique of pet grooming. It is a style that combines the best of the East and the West, and here at the Animal Arts Academy, it is Kingsly’s personal mission to teach this technique to his students.
