About me

Hi, My name is Jordan, and I have been a qualified groomer for around 3 years. I have been handstripping terriers through our breeding and showing kennel, since the age of 10 (24 years) and this experience has allowed me to fast track my diploma qualifications, as I have gained a wealth of experience growing up in the trade. I completed my Level 2 Dog Groomers Assistant Course With KD Grooming Academy In Wincanton, Somerset with Kelly Davis, and Level 3 Diploma In Dog Grooming With KJG Grooming Academy, Chudleigh, Devon with Kelly Gayler (both BBCs Pooch Perfect groomers). I am currently studying the ICMG (International Certification of Master Groomers) qualification to further my knowledge and skills whilst I am working at Ashgate Grooming. This qualification has 3 parts and I have achieved Track 1 and currently studying Track 2. Overall this qualification contains over 15 examinations, and is very strongly based on handling and safety of your dog and the groomer as well as grooming skills, so you can be reassured that I have these at the forefront of my mind when grooming. I am adding these qualifications to a BSc Hons degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare so I also have knowledge in canine and feline behaviour. 

I own a Kerry Blue Terrier named Caoimhe (kee-va) born March 2020, and we are enjoying learning further scissoring techniques together and will be competing in the future as scissoring breed standard trims is something I am really interested in and I am determined to master this one! As my history would demonstrate, I really enjoy handstripping breeds such as Westies, Border Terriers, Airedales and other stripping breeds of course and I am always looking for other breeds to master in all styles! I am passionate about grooming and education and regularly attend seminars either in person (pre Covid19) and online. I fully believe as  groomer you cannot ever know it all and constant and up to date learning is crucial. 

My greatest industry achievements other than my qualifications, are that I have recently competed in a virtual grooming competition, Premier Groom, and achieved 5th out of 29 places in handstripping and will be doing more and more of these as they appear! I believe every critique helps us all improve. I have been attending dog shows and helping with prepping dogs for the ring for 25 years and showing in the big ring at Crufts too. I have been co-hosting our handstrip seminar we offer along with Gemma Langford (trading as Gemma At Ashgate) offering other groomers and pet owners training (pre Covid restrictions).

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to meeting you and your dogs soon. Do contact me if you need to ask anything - nothing is a silly question!
