About me

Growing up,we where always a multi pet household and I was born animal mad,so it was only natural I would choose a career working with them !

I left school in May 1993 aged 15,sitting my last GCSE on a Friday afternoon and the following Tuesday started a YTS scheme at a local boarding kennels,cattery and grooming parlour .Over the next 2 years i was trained in conjunction with Look North training salon in Keighley,where i underwent in-house training and in August 1995 passed the city and guilds certificate 7705 with a credit.

I remained at the kennels for a further 9 years,working my way up to grooming manger and gaining an NVQ level 2 in small animal care and the D32 and D33 assessors awards,enabling me to train and assess other trainee groomers.Then in March 2002 I took the opportunity to rent a salon within a large pet store which I ran successfully until January 2010.

After starting a family and running busy salons for 17 years i took the option of working from home,in a quieter more relaxed environment.

Here at Hayley`s dog grooming studio,I strive to provide the very best possible service.Celebrating 27 years in the industry and with multi nationally recognized qualifications and grooming awards see`s clients returning month after month.

I can groom your dog to to breed standard or your own individual requirements and appointments are strictly limited to ensure each dog receives the time and attention they deserve.Every dog that comes into my care is treated as an individual and i work hard to strike up a special bond,so they become totally at ease with the grooming process.Owners can also expect the highest standard of customer care,with a professional yet informal approach and free friendly advice always available.

I also have huge love of dog showing and have shown my Bichon Frise,Pekingese, Griffon Bruxellois and French Bulldogs at championship level,qualifying and placing at Crufts with my dogs for the past 8 years running ! So as you can see dogs and grooming are not just my job,they are my passion !!
