(Owner of Claires Dog Grooming salon).
I have always wanted to work with animals especially dogs. So I take pride in saying that I'm a dog groomer. When I was at school I knew I wanted to become a dog groomer.
By the time I was ready to leave school I was fortunate to be offered an apprenticeship at a local salon near to where I lived. Over time I worked my way up from being the tea girl to senior groomer and then a Dog Grooming tutor.
I first started out on my own as a Mobile groomer working from my grooming van. Which my talented husband built and designed for me. As the business grew and we wanted to start a family. We had the salon built and we have ever looked back since.
I have now been dog grooming for over 15 years and still love it.
I'm fully Qualified and have completed a college course, full apprenticeship scheme and I have also completed the City and Guilds NVQ levels 1 and 2 in dog grooming.
As you can see Rowely is a very handsome young man. He may not be a very good groomer but he makes a great mascot.
He's always there to keep me company and good for moral support for any new dogs.
Our boys and girls
(Self-employed Dog groomer).
I have always wanted to work with animals and have worked with animals for many years. I’ve previously worked at a boarding kennel where I first started out as a volunteer Saturday girl walking the dogs. This lead to me being taken on as kennel handler and then progressed into being the kennels dog groomer.
