Wendy’s Pet Salon

27 years



About me

Hello my name is Wendy, from the early age of 8, I bathed my first poodle for my Mum whom has been a dog groomer since she was 16, it was then I knew I wanted to work with animals. In 1991 at age 16, I went on to completed a years course at Reaseheath College of Agriculture in Nantwich. Where I studied a 'College Diploma in Small Animal Care. I received a merit overall with a distinction in dog grooming. There after, I had many different jobs in customer services rolls, but always kept my hand in pet grooming. I managed to gain work at various pet salons to gain experience. Then moved on to work a little at home, and mobile grooming. Then in March 2008, I set up my first pet salon in Warrington Cheshire. The salon made a great success and I now have 4 other self employed staff at the salon. I have since moved back to my home town of Congleton and in 2015 I decided to set up a second salon in the town. Here I work full time with another self employed groomer and a part time assistant(my daughter). Along my grooming journey I have attended many grooming seminars and have updated my qualifications. I am a 'Certified Salon Professional' with the ICMG' and most recently gained level 3 diploma OCN in dog grooming with first aid. I have entered grooming competitions to gain feedback from successful dog groomers. I received 4th at Northern groomers comp, 3rd Northeast grooming comp and 2nd at Mastergroom in the fusion class. I love to groom cats, really enjoy hand stripping. Especially Border Terriers. My main love is for styling, poodles all sizes, cockerpoos, bichon, cross breeds, Asian fusion styles and pretty much anything I can give a head turning look. I work with pets and owners with behaviour issues with great successes and offer help to learning pet groomers.

Pet grooming is not just a job to me, but a life time ambition and passion.

Warm Regards Wendy

  • Yola Boote

    I’ve tried previous groomers, but have never been 100% satisfied. Once I found/meet Wendy, I’ve never looked back or had any need to search, for my perfect groomer, who makes my dogs happy and makes such a fantastic job. The best about Wendy? Her patience, time, with each pet. Can I add, no dog is too big or small and that includes cats too!
