About me

Hi, My name is Fran and I hold an OCN level 3 diploma in dog grooming. 

I own and manage DogzBody Spa in Manchester and I offer a luxury bespoke 1:1 service. I am lucky to have quite a bit of space that includes a luxurious reception area and fully enclosed undercover garden.

My love of grooming started with my first dog, Leo the Samoyed. Leo was a much loved member of the family who also happened to be a show dog. I competed at Crufts several times with him, achieving his stud book number before I sadly had to retire him due to early-onset arthritis at the tender age of 7. I was also the proud guardian of Cara the Siberian Husky who sadly passed early in 2023 from liver cancer. We currently live with a very handsome (and very large) Malamute x Great Pyrenees rescue boy called Indiana Bones. He is my pride and joy!

I'm a therapy dog assessor for Canine Concern and have a small team that carry out visits in various establishments (schools, hospitals, care homes etc) in the North West Manchester area. 

I am also a licensed Canine Body Language Instructor for the Dog Training College and aim to offer workshops in the near future.

I have completed a Pet First Aid course and refresh my knowledge yearly. 

My greatest industry achievement to date was working as Dog Grooming Assistant to Stuart Simons on the recent BBC hit show, 'Pooch Perfect.' 

I enjoy grooming a variety of breeds and am continually undertaking further professional development and courses to improve my skills and knowledge. My passion is double coated breeds (specifically dry coated breeds such as Huskies, Malamutes and Samoyeds) and people travel distances to use my services. I have trained a small team of groomers who work within my salon. They are all highly experienced and qualified groomers also.

Please feel free to contact me about the experiences we offer at DogzBody Spa. Every appointment is bespoke to your dog, with their welfare always at the forefront of everything we do. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

    First time using Fran and the Team. Coco looked beautiful, best groom she has ever had. I can honestly say she was the calmest she’s been. I would highly recommend Dogzbody Spa. So glad we’ve found Fran. Coco looks fabulous. Thank you x

    I have now taken all 4 of my dogs to Dogzbody Spa in Walkden and am I very pleased with their 1st grooms. It is a very calm relaxing environment for the dogs and the groomers give individual attention to your dog from the moment you drop them off until you collect them. Appointments are easy to book and I would definitely recommend this groomers.
