About me

My love for dogs has been with me since I was a child, they give so much happiness and teach us to be better people.

I left my job in Social Services back in 2011 ( I wasn’t cut out for a desk job) and decided I wanted to be a professional dog groomer, so my new journey began!

I enrolled on the City & Guilds Level 3 at Curracloe with Sara Carrington and loved every single day of my training, I knew I had made the right decision. I set up my little grooming business from home in my converted garage and since then Barking Marvellous has taken off!

Having left the comfort of my garage for a shop unit in a garden centre in 2013 things were moving forward, however In 2015 I was struggling to managed the business on my own and that’s when I met my business partner Jo and her very handsome Mini Schnauzer Arnie, together we got the business back on track and in 2017 we decided to move the salon to a better location. We now have a wonderful thriving salon in Ewell Village with lovely clients. We know that every single dog is individual and will tailor the grooming to suit their lifestyle.

Our Puppy programme ensures that we start the introduction to grooming early. We work with the owners on a weekly basis to gently gain trust with pups, so that their experience is not stressful. Sessions include washing, gentle drying, sometimes they just come in for a cuddle and a treat! We use quality products to promote healthy skin and coat.

We are strong supporters of Continual Professional Development, as you can never know enough! Jo is set to start her Diploma this year and we also intend to go on to do the ICMG. It’s important for us to attend seminars and workshops to improve our styling.

I have two Standard Poodles who I adore! I’ve competed with Ziggy and plan to compete with my girl Curly this year, she was placed 2nd in the Standard Poodle Junior Class at the World Dog Show 2017 in Leipzig Germany, so she likes to be in the limelight!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile :)
