About me

Hi, My name is Fran and I hold an OCN level 3 diploma in dog grooming. 

I own and manage DogzBody Spa in Manchester and I offer a 1:1 service. I am lucky to have quite a bit of space that includes a chill out room and enclosed outdoor area.

I currently have 2 dogs and they are both sled breeds: Cara (rescue Siberian Husky) and Indiana (rescue Malamute x Great Pyrenees). My love of grooming started with my first dog, Leo the Samoyed. Leo was a much loved member of the family who also happened to be a show dog. I competed at Crufts several times with him, achieving his stud book number before I sadly had to retire him due to early-onset arthritis at the tender age of 7.

I'm a therapy dog assessor for Canine Concern and have a small team that carry out visits in various establishments (schools, hospitals, care homes etc) in the North West Manchester area. 

I am also a licensed Canine Body Language Instructor for the Dog Training College and aim to offer workshops in the near future.

I have completed a Pet First Aid course and refresh my knowledge yearly. 

My greatest industry achievement to date was working as Dog Grooming Assistant to Stuart Simons on the recent BBC hit show, 'Pooch Perfect.' 

I enjoy grooming a variety of breeds and am continually undertaking further professional development and courses to improve my skills and knowledge. My passion is double coated breeds (specifically dry coated breeds such as Huskies, Malamutes and Samoyeds) and people travel distances to use my services.

Please feel free to contact me about the experiences we offer at DogzBody Spa. Every appointment is bespoke to your dog, with their welfare always at the forefront of everything we do. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

  • Janet Speed

    I am so glad to have found Fran, she is absolutely amazing with my anxious Gordon Setter Maggi. Maggi's coat is improving at each visit and Fran is so helpful with recommendations for us to maintain the improvement between visits. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fran.

  • Deb Bell

    I am so pleased to have found Fran. She is fabulous with my 2 Shih Tzu’s Luna and Tia. They love their pamper session with Aunty Fran.

  • Charlotte Dowey

    We were very nervous about finding the right groomer for our samoyed after hearing and seeing horror stories online of groomers who don't know what they are doing with double coated breeds and just shaving them down not only ruining their coats but putting them at risk, we found Fran via Facebook recommendation and she is amazing with Lola we will definitely be remaining loyal customers Lola always comes back looking and smelling amazing happy after her pamper and the seasonal groom really helps us keep on top of maintaining her gorgeous coat we would definitely recommend!

    My girls absolutely love coming to Fran for their de-shed and pamper. She makes such a fuss of them. When they come home they smell amazing and feel silky soft . I have already recomend her to my friends ( with dogs)
