About me

Hi, My name is Jo Silk-Smith, I have been grooming dogs for 12 Years now. I trained at Classie Dog Grooming With Mike Wildman. 

I hold my Certified Salon Professional, Certified Advanced Professional Groomer ICMG qualifications and I'm working towards my masters qualification having already completed the Terrier written and practical and the Gundog practical, for which I achieved a 100% mark!

I own 1 cocker, 1 standard poodle and 1 Frenchie. My favourite breed to groom is the English cocker and I'm currently learning to groom my standard poodle for grooming competitions!

I am passionate about grooming and education and regularly attend and give seminars, workshops and demo's.

My greatest industry achievement is Becoming a member of Groom team England, which was something I worked super hard to achieve. 

I'm really keen on competing at dog grooming competitions in the U.K and abroad. I often do quite well at these and have a couple of Best in Show awards under my belt as well as five Golden Scissor awards. I was the first ever person to gain three making me a supreme champion and I'm currently the only person in the Spaniel and setter category to hold this title.

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

    I asked Jo at K9 Transfurmations to groom my cross ridgeback Boo. Boo had never been to a groomers before and Jo looked after her like her own dog. Taking time to help her settle and reassure her. Boo loved her bath and even let Jo trim her nails which had always been sensitive. Thank you Jo for giving Boo a positive experience and of course, giving her a thorough bath!

    We approached Jo with our dogs about a year ago, we have family who also are blessed having Jo groom their spaniel so we were delighted she agreed to groom ours. We have a 6 year old working cocker/show cocker cross and a 2 year old working cocker shitzu cross (known as a cockertzu). Oh my days, this is the first time our dogs have been allowed to be groomed together and this has really helped them to be together. Jo’s cuts are perfect, both dogs come home looking incredible and are so happy. They love going and run to the shop door (literally drag me). We are just delighted we found Jo and Taya , we look forward to taking Ollie & Chloe and they adore going, thank you , Janine x

    Having spent the best part of a year trying to get a ninja dog to stay still long enough to be brushed we needed to find a groomer who understood the German WHP breed and their grooming requirements. Despite being booked up with clients Jo very kindly found us a slot. She took time to get to know Heidi and the experience was extremely positive! Lured by many treats Heidi was bathed, hand-stripped, generally tidied up and nails trimmed. We were absolutely delighted with the results - a much improved version from the scruffbag we handed over ! Looking forward already to our next visit in a few months' time!!
