Clare's Dog Grooming Salon

Deal, Kent

About me

I studied for approximately 2 years at Hadlow College Grooming School and achieved the City & Guilds Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists. BBC2 featured Hadlow Grooming School on a programme and labelled it "the best dog grooming school in England", I am proud to have achieved my qualifications there under the excellent tutelage of Julie Harris and Belinda Morris. I have recently opened my own salon where I work with one dog at a time and as such, the environment is one of calmness which can help the more nervous dogs settle into a grooming routine. I have an Ozone Spa bathing system which has many health benefits for your dog, including easing Arthritic joints, assisting the healing process of skin conditions and cleaning deep into your dogs coat, therefore removing more ingrained dirt. I also provide teeth cleaning appointments using an ultrasound tooth brush. There is no movement required of the brush, and no noise emitted so this means the dogs are very accepting of this process. The ultrasound waves kill bacteria so gum health and breath is improved, and also tartar is broken down and removed over a number of sessions. No sedation is required so this is a huge benefit to the older dog suffering with bad teeth or gums, or indeed breath. Once the tartar has been removed, a maintenance programme can be booked. I can provide advice on caring for your dog's coat which can in turn reduce the time your dog spends at the salon, and if booked regularly, potentially reduce the cost. I regularly attend industry seminars and workshops which enables me to keep up to date with trends and techniques. I have a handsome Show Cocker Spaniel called Joey who is my constant companion and model! If you and your dog would like to arrange a consultation or appointment, I would be pleased to meet you.

    AFter trying several groomers we found the perfect Groomer in Clare. Our nervous doggie ran straight to her and relaxed. Would recommend highly


    Clare's the 'dog's wotsit' when it comes to coiffeuring one's canine loved one. Our Maisie, a cocker spaniel rescued from Spain, has dodgy hips and Clare has not only clipped her beautifully, she's given us some excellent advice on how to alleviate her condition rather than paying a king's ransom to a vet to operate. Also, Maisie always comes away with a pretty bow attached to her collar. Clare's the Vidal Sasson of canine grooming. Keep shearing away!
