About me

I have been around dogs all my life and with my mum being a veterinary nurse we had quite a few extras brought home over the years. My first experience of dog grooming was when I was around 15 helping to prepare our family flat coated retrievers ready for the show ring. In 1995 I started working at a boarding kennels where part of my role as a kennel maid included bathing and grooming the dogs ready to go home. In between having my children I have always works at kennels as couldn’t imagine not working with dogs and in 2009 I was given the opportunity to train at hadlow to be a professional dog groomer. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt so much from our excellent tutor who taught us everything we needed to know and much more. After gaining my qualifications I was lucky enough to work at a great place to practice my skills and groom lots of different breeds. I ended up running our busy grooming parlour at the kennels and was able to gain lots of experience. In 2015 after having my 3rd baby I decided to try and work from home to fit in better with family life and it was the best decision. It’s nice to have the time to get to know the dogs and their owners more. I enjoy working with all breeds any shape or size and spending that one to one time with them. It’s also fun to have families of dogs visit too as they love a run round the garden while waiting for their pamper. I strongly believe grooming should be a enjoyable stress free experience for all dogs so always take extra time and care to make sure my furry friends are happy.

    Would definitely recommend Kay to anyone. She has a calm and caring nature and my 2 dogs are really excited to see her.

  • Adele Duxbury

    I wouldn't trust anyone else with my border terrier Lilah. Such a brilliant groomer and creates a very relaxed atmosphere for all the dogs who get to have a good play in the garden before their groom.

    I would highly recommend Kathryn. I wouldn’t take my 2 little ladies with anyone else. It’s obvious she loves all her 4 legged clients...and my 2 love her
