About me

My first experience of dog grooming was almost 14 years ago and I’m sad to say it was not a happy one. Our first ever cairn terrier would take days to settle after being groomed. We found a different groomer who was calm, gentle and skilled. I was allowed to stay throughout the process and my dog went home happy and relaxed. Little did I realise at the time that not only was I learning some of the techniques of grooming, but the whole experience would shape how I work with dogs in the future.

I started grooming my cairn terrier for the show ring over 10 years ago and really enjoyed the process. After nearly 20 years teaching science in secondary schools I decided to look for a change in career. I decided to focus on dog grooming, which gives me huge satisfaction and I haven’t looked back since then.

In 2011 I started my training with Jitka Krizova of Vita Canis. After completing my training and some work experience I set up TopTails individual Dog Grooming; opening the doors to my first client in April 2012.

At the very heart of TopTails is kind, sympathetic handling, where I provide one-to-one grooming on an individual basis. No element of grooming is forced and although on occasions grooming aids my be used no dog is forcibly restrained. I have a very successful record with anxious but gentle dogs, who need time, patience and training. I take a holistic approach to grooming not only with behaviour where I use training, massage, sound therapy and aromatherapy but also by being fully dedicated to using natural and whenever possible, organic products to produce the very best health benefits for every dog.

As well as grooming I also show and judge cairn terriers, I compete at KC Rally Obedience and have achieved the KC Gold Good Citizen award with a cairn terrier.
