About me

My passion for dogs began at an early age with our family pets. Growing up near a loch in Scotland meant many long walks and muddy paws so brushing and grooming was always a regular feature! I began working with dogs in the mid 1980's in show kennels where I discovered a love for grooming. I then moved to London where I eventually managed a busy salon, gaining my C&G along the way in 1992. I took an extended break from commercial grooming to care for a family member and found I loved it just as much when I returned!
I currently work on a 1-1 basis from my home and am very lucky to have a lovely relationship with my wonderful clients.
I enjoy competing and attending shows/seminars as there is something new to learn everyday!
I very much enjoy learning and also have a BA English & Creative Writing Hons (First Class).
I am currently working towards the ICMG qualification.

    Elaine is an amazing dog groomer, her kind caring nature shows through when i drop my dog bella off. I would recommend Elaine to any dog lovers. My doggie has been coming to Elaine since she was a pup and turnes 5 this year. I can leave her knowing she is in good caring hands (gets spoilt) and loves a good blow dry. Thank you Elaine for always looking after bella and makng her look beautiful. You are so pasionate about grooming every dog is in amazinh hands. X

    Barmy Barney loves visiting Elaine and always comes home looking and smelling gorgeous and is very chillled and relaxed for the rest of the day! I couldn't recommend Elaine enough. My crazy cocker definitely won the lottery when we found his groomer.
