About me

Throughout my entire life I have been surrounded by animals - Cliche but this is what has driven my passion and desire to work with them, specifically dogs.

From being brought up with a variety of animals this spurred me on to complete my first animal qualification straight from school.

After completing a national diploma I was typically unsure what to do with my career. I decided to defer my university for 2 years in order to gain some valuable life experience. The chosen place for this was a busy kennel and cattery. Here I developed the skills to care for dogs of all breeds and this was where my grooming bug started. Albeit just a bath here and a nail clip there, it was the start i needed but i did not know at the time.

After working with many rescue dogs at this kennels i decided a route in the animal behaviour field was for me. To understand this complex minefield off I went to university for a total of 4 years and a great accomplishment of 2 degrees. After all of this i was still was unclear where to go so i returned to pursue the grooming career once more.

Once i started i just couldn't stop. I trained in London, and would often stay late to complete grooms or just to learn more. Finally after a lot of hard work and determination i opened my salon in September 2014 and I haven't looked back since.

Since opening my salon I have completed my level 3 in dog grooming and have continued onto the International Certified Master Groomer (ICMG) pathway. Not only have I been working on my qualifications continuing my development but I have also began taking part in grooming competitions and on two occasions being Highly Commended on my grooms.

I am very proud to now say that my degrees were not wasted and are used everyday in the salon working with anxious or nervous dogs but also helping friendly happy dogs enjoy their time with us. We work with a wide variety of breeds and are even providing grooming for show dogs. We pride ourselves in providing you with a great service that caters your dogs needs and welfare but also a style that suits your lifestyle.
