About me

Hi, My name is Charlotte, and I am basically mad about animals. I have grown up surrounded by them and have spent many years in the dog and horse world. I have always wanted to turn my passion into a career and after a lot of research and thought decided dog grooming was for me. I myself had struggled to find a good groomer for my dogs and so had a lot of people I know.   So I set about learning everything I could and enrolled at Abingdon and Witney College to complete my Level 2 in dog grooming and then on to Sparsholt College  for my Level 3. Both of them where passed with a Distinction. I have opened my own salon and I have never looked back I absolutely love every minute of what I do . 

I am a married mum of 3 and we have 3 dogs, a Border Collie, a Springer Spaniel and an Australian Kelpie. I have always had Border Collies since I was a child and whilst I love all breeds and love learning about them all and their characteristics and history , the  Border Collie has a special place in my heart and I hope to always have one by my side . I enjoy all aspects of grooming and enjoying having the chance to groom many breeds with one of my favourites being the Schnauzer.

I am passionate about grooming and education and regularly attend seminars. I subscribe to several magazines and I am active on social media keeping myself up to date on the Industry. 

I have completed a Pet First Aid course and I am also a council licensed Home Border which I run as a joint business with my husband.

My greatest industry achievement is Working with nervous dogs and several rescue cases who previously couldn’t be groomed but now come to me an a regular basis and are groomed with no problems.

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to meeting you and your dogs soon.

    My dog loves going here for baths and nail trims. I feel happy and confident leaving him in here as I know he’s well cared for. I have also used hillside boarding and loved the regular updates on how he was doing. He definitely made himself at home xxx Can’t recommend highly enough
