About me

I am a Senior Dog Groomer trained to a high standard. I hold my City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Dog Stylists and currently working towards my Level 4 Higher Diploma.

My love for dogs started at a young age with my parents always owning dogs and cats. I have 2 dogs that you'll often see when you visit my salon - Mollie a Border Collie and Bonnie my Miniature Parti Poodle. I compete with both in agility and Bonnie in Grooming competitions too! Both my dogs have taught me everything I need to know about handling and working with dogs.

I have been grooming since September 2014 where I undertook my City & Guilds Level 3 Certificates in Introductory Dog Grooming. At the end of the course I was offered a job & worked there for 5 years. By September 2015 I completed my City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists (within 1 year of completing my introductory qualification!).

In March 2016 I completed a City & Guilds Level 3 Award in Education and Training to gain my teaching qualification. I’ve taught students the practical side of grooming as well as educational knowledge for 4 years.

In October 2016 I competed in a YKC grooming qualifier competition at the London Excel to compete at YKC Crufts 2017 for Groomer of the Year.

February 2017 I completed Pet First Aid course aimed at dog groomers and the hazards & risks that come within the industry. The following day I then completed my first Emergency First Aid at Work (Human First Aid) course. I am now qualified for Pet & Human first aid.

March 2017 came around and it was the Crufts finals! First came the YKC Groomer of the Year Final where I came 2nd in the Senior category with a hand strip Border Terrier! The following day I competed in the YKC Senior Jumping Final with my Border Collie Mollie – We won our overall height category and came 3rd overall! A great start to my competing year! I also qualified for the next Jumping Final at Crufts 2018.

In September 2017 I took part in a trade stand demonstration at the PATs Telford Show grooming a Bichon in a pet trim. This was my first time demonstrating a groom with the members of the public watching and asking questions – What great fun!

As of 2018 I am completing my Level 4 Higher Diploma in Dog Grooming - I enjoy developing my skills & always feel there is more to learn within this industry! I like to push myself to learn new skills and the achievements/qualifications that come with them. I do this by attending educational events, seminars & workshops to keep up date with the ever-changing industry of the grooming world as well as competing in dog grooming competitions & furthering my own education!

In November 2019 I opened my own dog grooming business - I love to groom all breeds of dogs and always strive to ensure that they enjoy the grooming process as much as I do! I endeavour to meet all clients requirements - So whether its hand-stripping, clipping, full scissoring, breed standards, pet trims or a bit of everything - My aim is always 100% client satisfaction, for both the dog and their owner!
