About me

In 2013 we welcomed a Australian Miniature Labradoodle to our family and I decided to do a short dog grooming course so I could give her a positive grooming life that I'd be happy with for her. I loved it from the start and made the decision that after being a hair stylist for over 20yrs to travel a different path and in 2014 I went back to college gaining distinctions in all graded assignments for the City & Guilds Level 2 for Dog Grooming Assistants and the first part of Level 3, the Introductory Certificate. In 2016 I started the second part of the Level 3 achieving the full Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists in 2017 passing all 4 styling exams first time.

I was trained and mentored through all my grooming qualifications by Jocelyn Dorrian LCGI, she has been grooming since 2001 and teaching since 2010 at various colleges and since 2017 at her own grooming academy, she holds her City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma and Licentiateship Level 4 in dog grooming. 

My studio maybe small but it has a homely, calming atmosphere and since opening in 2014 I have been committed to offering an exclusive one-to-one bespoke family feel service that puts your pets first. 

I take my time and work with your dog at their pace to make the process as relaxing and as positive an experience as possible, if they don't accept a part of the process then I will work with them and you until we get to a point where they hopefully feel comfortable with it. We always end with playtime and snuggles.

I use quality certified cruelty free shampoos and body mists to pamper your pets and they are always dried by hand and never in a cabinet so I can monitor them for their safety, dry their coats for the best finish and check their skin all over. I also offer spa treatments such as facials, paw and nose moisturiser and the Nagayu CO2 Skin Therapy Treatment.

We have three dogs, an Australian Miniature Labradoodle, a Labrador Retriever and a Miniature Schnauzer and I love all my customers dogs as my own. We develop a very close bond, they learn to trust me and they become a member of The Dog Shed family.

They’re pampered with care, respect and style!

    I have been taking my 10 year old Lhasa Apso Daisy to Tess for almost 2 years now and I always find her very professional, helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend The Dog Shed and would not take my dog anywhere else. I know that when I leave my dog with Tess she is safe and happy!

  • Cristina Semple

    I've been using Tessa to groom my two Cocker Spaniels for two years now. She is patient and loving towards them and I would highly recommend her services.

  • Marilyn Champion

    I have taken my little schitz zu max to tess now for just over 12 months. He loves going for his treatment and he always looks fab when I pick him up...Tess is very wecolming and I know she treats max like she would her own pooches...I would and have recommended tess to friends and family. ..it's a great lille place and quite homely max feels very comfortable there.

  • Derek Champion

    Our dog Max goes to see Tess every three weeks and I am sure he loves going. He comes out looking a million dollars. Tess offers a very top rated service and will also offer friendly advice on our two dogs, not just Max. I will recommend Tess to everyone that wants to treat their pooch to a top of the range pampering. The minute you walk into the well equipped grooming parlour it's a nice friendly relaxed time for owner and pooch

  • Ellen Terrence

    My 6 month old puppy Buddy has been going to Tess for 3 months, he’s very new to the grooming experience and has proved slightly challenging for Tess. I have to say that despite his dislike of certain elements of his grooming he looks absoloutley amazing every time!! Tess always has lots of advice and reassuring words for a new dog owner like myself and she’s very keen to work with Buddy on a regular basis in order for him to settle into his grooming. Each time he visits I couldn’t be happier, The Dog Shed is small and cosy

  • Danielle Wallace

    My pup is 2 years old and has been going to tess for a while & he can be a bit of a handful but with tess patience he’s getting there and beginning to actually enjoy being groomed

  • Stephen Whitworth

    Both of my dippy terrier crosses have been to Tess both dogs benefitted from her calming manner. There coats and skin benefitted from the treatments Tess has carried out.the local vet even mentioned the dogs nails where well looked after when my dogs went for their vet checks

  • Julie Laing

    The one to one service Tess offers made me choose The Dog Shed over other groomers nearly four years ago ,when we first met Tess for our puppy trim. It was definitely the best decision I’ve made as we have been visiting Tess every five weeks since. Meg always looks and smells wonderful, and can’t get down Tess’s path quick enough to see her . Thank you Tess for a fantastic service, nothing is ever too much trouble and most of all your patience with Meg,who can be a live wire at times.
