Canine Class

About me

I have been lucky enough to work with and own dogs all my life. After a BA hons and a career in Marketing left me feeling unfulfilled I knew I wanted dogs to be my way of life and I had to find a way to make it happen.

With determination and a passion I began working in RSPCA kennels and gained my HND in Animal Care and Management from Lackham college I also completed work experience in America with a top dog behaviourist.
I trained in dog grooming in 2005 and knew I was where I was supposed to be. I immediately set up Canine Class in Midsomer Norton. I started alone and grew the business to a busy fun caring salon with top of the range equipment and carefully selected friendly experienced team.

I am constantly trying to improve my grooming and knowledge and keep my skills current. I do this by studying for industry qualifications and inviting top industry professionals to the salon for training. I now have my City and Guilds Level 3 introduction and Diploma in Dog grooming. I also recently gained The Award in Education and Training from Bath college to ensure I am qualified to teach my staff.
In addition I attend seminars, dog events and a have entered a couple of grooming competitions where I have been lucky to achieve a first place award. I am looking forward to doing more of these.

Outside of work I have an amazing daughter who keeps me very busy and unsurprisingly dogs are also a big part of my life. I own 3 dogs: a GSP, a Hungarian Vizsla and a Springer spaniel and have competed gundogs for the last 10 years achieving many awards.

Please do feel free to call for a chat or visit the salon.
