About me

Hi, My name is Lorraine, I have been grooming for 32 years, I trained during a YTS Apprenticeship for 2 years in a salon back in 1988 .I opened my salon Canine Care in 1996.

I own 3 standard poodles Chyna,Hilda and Romeo and 2 poochons Domino and Vegas. I've got my dream dogs but have always wanted afghan hound. My favourite dog to groom is a poodle or any wool coat .

I am passionate about grooming and education and regularly attend seminars workshops and competitions. I subscribe to many facebook pages to keep up to date with the industry. I am a member of British Isles Groomers Association and Creative Groomers Association.

I have completed a Pet First Aid course.

My greatest industry achievement is Best in show at north east professional groomers competition 2016.  Being selected to be the demo groomer on BBC's Pooch Perfect show in 2021.

Placed many times over the years at grooming competitions and been fortunate to have also been on the judging panel also .

At Canine Care and Co we work as a team making sure your dog gets the best groom and style that works for you and your dog.Our experience shows in the quality of our work.So if you are looking for a breed style,asian style or something fun and creative just give us a call and we can have a chat about your dog . Take a look at my achievements below .

In my spare time i love to sing ,having been lead singer in an 80s tribute band. I love to walk my dogs and socialise with friends in or out of the dog grooming world .

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