About me

My grooming salon is situated in the idealic village of Mayfield East Sussex, I offer a bespoke dog grooming service where your dog’s well being and happiness are at the heart of what I do.

I have been infatuated with dogs since I was a small child when I was bought my first dog breed book. Unfortunately, I couldn’t have a dog at home, so I began to walk and look after all the neighbour’s dogs as a way to compensate and fulfill my own aspirations.

I, then, was employed in my first grooming role in Greenwich, London at the age of 17 as an apprentice after leaving school.

Whilst having a family I experienced a break in my grooming career but returned back to dog walking in 2005 and set up a small local business in Tunbridge Wells.

This being a success evolved into grooming the dogs I walked, and as a result of positive customer feedback attracted more grooming clientele.

I, therefore, made the conscious decision in 2014 to return back to college, retrain and undertake my City and Guilds level 2 qualification at Hadlow where I won most promising student at the Inter college south competition. I furthered my education and went on to take my City and Guilds level 3 intro at Gillsman dog grooming and training under Nikki Scott in Hastings. I am now proud to say that in March 2018 I completed my Diploma qualification.

I am committed to my own professional development and regularly attend seminars to ensure I am up date with new techniques and practices. Additionally, I am pet first aid trained, a member of the British dog grooming association and Pet Industry Federation.

    Highly recommended!

    I would highly recommend Louise at Dirty Paws in Mayfield. She has been wonderful with my slightly anxious dog and has managed to clean his teeth without any issues. Louise does a much better job of nail clipping than my vet. Thank you Louise for all your care and patience

  • Pauline White

    We have been taking our Sprocker - Floyd - to be clipped by Louise for nearly five years now and have been very happy with her professional, caring approach and the quality of the service provided. Plus, Louise is truly excellent with our slightly anxious dog who seems very happy to be left in her care. Many years ago I used to clip and exhibit Airedales at Crufts and would not hesitate to recommend Louise to anyone looking for a quality grooming service.
