About me

Hi, my name is Sophie, I have been grooming for just under 3 years, beginning with my own Airedale Terrier when he was a small pup and realising that I loved it so much that I wanted to learn more and groom all breeds! I trained for my City & Guilds levels 2 and 3 at Sparsholt College, Hampshire - passing my level 3 exams with distinction in July 2019. I'm also qualified in Canine First Aid and continue to study and learn as much as I can to grow my skills and knowledge.

My Airedale is a big bouncy boy with a mind of his own, a loud voice and very strong jaws - very tricky to groom as things always have to be on his terms!  So I've needed to develop loads of patience, understanding and a calm, confident manner - not to mention a sense of humour for grooming him. This now helps me when working with the more nervous and difficult doggy visitors, and I'm happy to spend as much time as it takes for them to get to know and trust me so they can relax and enjoy the attention I give.

I groom from a quiet cabin in my garden, recently fitted out with all new equipment including a lovely warm bubbly hydrobath, and I use gentle all natural products wherever possible. The Hut is air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter and every consideration is given to each dog's comfort and safety. Dogs are never rushed and are always given plenty of supervised breaks for a run around the garden or a snooze on a comfy bed under my desk. 

Thank you for reading my profile and I look forward to meeting you and your dogs soon.
