About me


A warm welcome to my profile page on the Groomers Spotlight, although I am unable to take on new dog grooming clients I do hold courses for groomers so they can hone their skills and improve and also for dog owners so they can maintain their dogs at home.

I enjoy hosting seminars and showing dogs at confirmation shows as well as being a competition groomer and all round dog fanatic.

You can keep updated with show release dates and whats happening in my world @verityhardcastle on Instagram or follow me on Facebook, search Verity Hardcastle.

I am a fully qualified, multi award winning dog groomer, I am a master groomer and a member of the guild of master groomers, working to the highest standards, tailoring the dogs I groom to their owners specific requirements or to breed standard and I am all about continual development, craving to learn more and more about our craft with ultimately trying to be the best groomer I can possibly be.

My background, I grew up surrounded by dogs, my grandad was a well respected gundog breeder and trainer, selling his trained dogs all over Europe, his kennels were in North Yorkshire where I grew up and currently live. My Maternal family have owned everything from Dalmatians, Tibetan Terriers, Lhasa Apso’s and Norfolk Terriers. We seem to have always had that absolute love for dogs in us, its in the blood. Its a dream to be able to work with dogs every day and I never take this for granted. 

I am two times winners of the Pet Industry Federations grooming salon of the year and I have been placed at many grooming nationals at Championship level, I’ve even scooped 1st place in America at one of the biggest grooming competitions.

I am also lucky enough to work in the media featuring live on channel 4 numerous times and you can check out my judging on BBC1s prime time show Pooch Perfect, available on BBC player now.
