Four Paws Groom School - Kent



About me

Is my job amazing? Yes!

Do I work with awesome pooches and people? Yes!!

Could you be a dog groomer too? Yes!!!

I am one of the Directors and Tutors at Four Paws Groom School - Kent, training students for a career in dog grooming with nationally recognised qualifications.  We get a diverse mix of people and pets through the salon doors which makes my job fun and exciting every day!

My pet grooming career started many years ago and I was employed as a dog grooming stylist before starting my own grooming business which I ran alongside a young family.  As my girls grew, i dedicated more time to my personal development, focusing on gaining teaching qualifications.  I merged my passion for dogs and helping people learn into a teaching role at Canterbury College and went on to deliver courses in dog grooming and animal management.

I am dedicated to the pet grooming industry and took an active role in BIGA (British Isles Grooming Association) after leaving the college.

In 2016 whilst assisting the British Isles Grooming Association, I met Fern Gresty and Sarah Mackay who would later become my business partners (and great friends!) We just clicked and knowing that learners like the brand, ethos and quality of training course that Four Paws Groom School offered in Cheshire we took the leap and opened the first Four Paws Groom School in the South of England in 2018. The courses we offer are recognised by The Groomers Spotlight and you will see some of my students listed which is fantastic! We encourage our qualified groomers to join The Groomers Spotlight, which we feel is raising standards in pet care through encouraged qualification.

I am proud of all my achievements and continue to inspire others to join this fantastic industry.  Few jobs allow you to spend so much time with your own dogs but my lovely Springer Spaniel comes to work with me daily to be fussed and pampered at whim!

If you are interested in a training course or have a gorgeous doggie who wants a pamper by one of our students please get in touch!  Dog model grooms completed by our students are charged at a 50% discount making high quality grooming very affordable. We hope to hear from you soon - keep those tails wagging!!!

    I met Sarah when she was a tutor at Canterbury dog grooming college in 2017 . I passed my L2 with Sarah . I think Sarah was one of the best tutors I remember so much from my time with Sarah fondly. And she definitely helped me become the groomer I am today . Sarah is a fantastic teacher and has such an affinity with dogs in her care .
