Meet our Team

Alex Molero

Founder & Pet Groomer

Hallo allemaal! My name is Alex. I know many of you will recognize me. I´m the founder of Reino Canino and in 2019 I transferred the business to my good friend and colleague Nuria. Perhaps you´re wondering why I´m back, right? Well, this is my story. I sold it with the intention of doing what I love more, to buy a farm and make a hotel for dogs.
Due to circumstances with this pandemic that took all of us by surprise my plans didn´t go how I expected. I Love this place so after all I´m very happy to be back. I come from a large family of 11 brothers of which 5 are veterinarians. We grew up on a farm, surrounded by all kinds of animals. Our parents instilled in us love for animals and I remember that since I was a little child I used to take all the puppies and kitten that I found on the street to the farm.
I came to Amsterdam 17 years ago. When I arrived here the first thing I did was apply for a job at Artis Zoo where I wasn´t working for a long time because to see the animals in captivity made me feel sad. I personally think that all living creatures must be free and happy in their habitat. Sometime later I went to Spain and began studying to become a pet groomer, after that I opened Reino Canino. I´m always training and improving, attending seminars, and participating in  shows and competitions where I have the opportunity of meeting people who love the profession as much as I do. My dear customers and friends you´re always welcome in my home, your home as well, Reino Canino where we will always pamper your beloved pet with all our love. 
Big hug! ❤

Nuria Citroen

Director

Hello! This is Nuria. I was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canarias (Spain), where I have been living more than 40 years. I´m also half Dutch from my mother's side and nowadays my passport is Dutch. Although I have Dutch blood I'm not very good with the language but I could assist you, beside with my native Spanish, I speak English and Italian fluently and a bit of Portuguese and French. The most important thing always, is wanting to communicate. I've been an animal lover for as long as I can remember, so much so that I chose, more than 20 years ago not to eat them. I'm an ecologist, a nature lover and a fighter for the environment. In 2019 my good friend Alex, who started this business, offered me to venture and I couldn't refuse. I started full of energy and good desires, the same ones I still have today. Now I'm fully dedicated to providing the best quality products and service available for your pampered pets.

It's here, with the help of all of you, where I would like to reach my retirement, surrounded by your best furry friends. We give the best of us, always with the best products of the market and even more importantly with all our love, because they deserve the best. 

Thank you very much for being there. This place, my dream, couldn't be possible without all of you.

All the best!

Adinda Kok

Pet Groomer Assistant 

 

Hi everybody! My name is Adinda, I live in Diemen. I am working with dogs for more then 30 years now. After working as a vetenary assistant and in a kennel  for a while, I followed the study to become a dog groomer, that was 15 years ago.

12 years ago I started a little dog walking business, and that took me up so much time so I didn't do very much grooming anymore in the meantime.

But I really would love to do more grooming again, so Nuria allowed me to join the wonderful Reino canino team! Now I am refreshing all my knowledge everyday and really love it. I enjoy a lot giving all the dogs the best treatments and lots of love. I am really proud to be a part of this great  team!  I hope to meet you and your beautiful dog soon at the Reino Canino salon! 😃

Administrative Assistant

Hello! My name is Estefanía and I´ve been part of this amazing team since 2020. I was born and raised in a small town called Almería in the south of Spain, I grew up surrounded by animals and I deeply love them. I ´ve been dedicating most of my professional life to the world of business administration and the customer service. Since I came to live in this beautiful city which I love, I´ve been working mostly as a Tour guide until the pandemic left this talkative guide without much to do, and the "the little administrator" awoke in me again. My work at Reino Canino is mainly to help with organization, the website, social media and more. It makes me especially happy to be able to develop my profession with all your wonderful pets to keep me company. I´m a lucky girl!
I hope to see you all soon!

Peace & Love!
