Nikki grew up in the world of dogs. Her mother, Bonnie Bird, has owned, bred, and campaigned some of the top dogs in the Country since the early 90s. Bonnie was most successful with her Rottweilers, Bouvier Des Flanders, and Pomeranians in which she has owned multiple National Specialty winners as well as earned over 150 shows on these breeds. Nikki started her work with dogs by going to grooming school and earning her Masters Degree in grooming. She's been grooming professionally for 12 years now and owns her own shop in Stuart, FL. About 5 years ago, Nikki ventured into the AKC Conformation world and started handling her own dogs. Since then she has followed in her mother's successful footsteps and achieved some of the top titles in the sport of purebred dogs.
