"A healthy dog is a happy dog"


My name is Kate and I hold a City & Guilds Level 3 Professional Diploma in dog grooming. I started my grooming business back in 2010. Having previously run a successful dog walking company, I wanted to explore my more creative side and along with my love and passion for dogs went on to study for my City & Guilds Level 3 qualification.  I completed my training at one of the country’s leading grooming schools and winner of Grooming School of the Year 2016 ‘Dogs Delight’ under the tutelage of Master Groomer Julie Lalou. I personally own three dogs – two Miniature Schnauzers and one Standard Poodle.

I work by myself and professionally groom small to medium sized breeds only. I am fully insured with Public Liability insurance and have undergone Health & Safety and Canine First Aid training as part of my qualification. I attend regular grooming seminars in order to widen my existing knowledge and to keep abreast of new techniques and changes in the industry. 


I groom to a professional standard but I am also happy to work to my clients requests to help find a suitable trim for their dog which suits both their lifestyle and their pets’ health and well-being.  I am also qualified in hand stripping which is a grooming technique suitable for wire haired and gun dog breeds.




I offer a complete range of grooming services from nose to tail. The health and welfare of your dog is always my number one priority and I  pay special attention to ensure that all dogs in my care are made to feel relaxed and at ease resulting in a more enjoyable experience for them. The process of grooming also allows for me to make a general health check inspecting the condition of the coat, skin and the dogs general well being.
