 I have been  working as a dog groomer for the last 30 years and  I became  City & Guilds qualified about 25 years ago.

 Improving my skills led me to start competing in grooming competitions , I entered my first one in 1991 where I won the poodle class, with a thirst for more knowledge and to enhance my grooming  I spent time with other specialist groomers learning on a one to one basis about other breeds. I then started to enter more grooming competitions and in 1992 I won Eurogroom overall, this followed with Groomer Of The Year in 1995, I am the only groomer to have won this title three times, I also won Eurogroom three times. I have been nominated for a Cardinal Crystal Achievement Award for my contribution to the world of dog grooming. I was also  invited to the Oster Invitational in the USA to compete alongside other top groomers from across the world.

I have judged twice at Groomer of the Year, as well as judging at  Eurogroom and Premier Groom and I am currently on the International judges list for grooming competitions. I  breed and show poodles as well as being a International Judge for Poodles , I have also bred and shown Bichon Frises and  American Cockers  alongside a  wide range of experience with several other breeds.

I use both Pure Paws and Requal products on all the dogs who come to me for grooming and strive to give a first class service at a affordable price , where your dog is treated to the best care and attention, I work with the client and give advice on what is possible to achieve with their dog.
