Because I'm Woof It

From 2014

Wokingham, Berkshire

About me

My name is Nicola and I own Because I'm Woof It, a busy salon in Wokingham, Berkshire. 

I have always loved and grown up with dogs and after deciding to follow this passion, I trained to become a dog groomer. I have completed my City and Guilds level 2 and 3 and have the OCN diploma. I instantly fell in love with the job and set my business up in 2014 and was originally a mobile groomer. My business went from strength to strength and then the time came to decide how to grow my business further. In June 2017 I opened my salon and never looked back! 

I am proud of the excellent reputation my salon has- I still have customers that travel to me from when I was mobile. My salon is busy yet personable and we strive to be the best dog groomers we can be. 

I am an advocate of continued professional development and regularly attend seminars, workshops and industry events to ensure I keep up with the latest information.

I have completed the Compassionate handling of difficult dogs seminar and myself and staff are experienced in dealing with difficult and nervous dogs. We are canine first aid trained.

We use ethical and vegan products in the salon to not only give the dogs the very best but also do our bit for the environment. The salon is open plan, we can see everything that is going on and all the dogs at all times. We use a Hydrobath which is great for the dog's coat and skin whilst also being more water and energy efficient so kind to the environment. Our tables lower to the ground which enables large, elderly or nervous dogs easier access. 

Ensuring my business does it bit for the environment is something we are committed to. All of our lights are LED, we use environmentally responsible products where possible, our bath is more efficient and we recycle as much as possible. These are just a few of the things we do to ensure the salon is being as environmentally conscious as possible.  

Because I'm Woof It started and continues to sponsor the Wokingham Dog Friendly Scheme. Allowing the public to know which local businesses are dog friendly so they can visit with their pet.

    I have 2 chihuahuas who have both been going to see Nicola and Faye since they were pups! We always get a wonderful welcome when we arrive and although my dogs are nervous I know that they are safe and with people who really care when I leave them there. They always come back looking and smelling fabulous, and if there are any specific requests (we like our dogs to have shorter hair around the ears) we are always listened to which is so appreciated. I always recommend to friends with dogs!!
