About me

Hi, My name is Charlotte, and I am basically mad about animals. I have grown up surrounded by them and have spent many years in the dog and horse world. I have always wanted to turn my passion into a career and after a lot of research and thought; I decided dog grooming was for me. I myself had struggled to find a good groomer for my dogs and so had a lot of people I know.   So I set about learning everything I could and enrolled at Abingdon and Witney College to complete my Level 2 in dog grooming and then on to Sparsholt College  for my Level 3. Both of these where passed with a Distinction. I have opened my own salon and I have never looked back I absolutely love every minute of what I do . 

I am a married mum of 3 and we have 4 dogs, a Border Collie, 2 Springer Spaniels and an Australian Kelpie x Border Collie. I have always had Border Collies since I was a child and whilst I love all breeds and love learning about them all and their characteristics and history , the  Border Collie has a special place in my heart and I hope to always have one by my side . I enjoy all aspects of grooming and enjoying having the chance to groom many breeds with one of my favourites being the Schnauzer.

I am passionate about grooming and education and regularly attend seminars. I subscribe to several magazines and I am active on social media keeping myself up to date on the Industry. 

I have completed a Pet First Aid course and I am also a council licensed Home Border which I run as a joint business with my husband.

My salon has been freshly decorated and has all the latest equipment and a fantastic modern Airconditioning/Heating system so you can be sure your dog is groomed in the optimum temperature all year round. Everything is designed for your dogs comfort and happiness. For our more nervous customers a 1-2-1 service is available if they prefer the salon to themselves. I work around your dog and tailor any groom to suit them. 

My greatest industry achievement is Working with nervous dogs and several rescue cases who previously couldn’t be groomed but now come to me an a regular basis and are groomed with no problems. 

Outside of work you can find us most weekends having fun as a family with our dogs. We take part in Agility and Hoopers training with our collies and Field Training with our spaniel.

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

    My dog loves going here for baths and nail trims. I feel happy and confident leaving him in here as I know he’s well cared for. I have also used hillside boarding and loved the regular updates on how he was doing. He definitely made himself at home xxx Can’t recommend highly enough
