An Introduction to Me & My Dogs

Animals have always been part of my life - as a child our family always had dogs including Jack Russell terriers, poodles, Labradors and boxers! We also had a family of guinea pigs and I was lucky enough to get a pony when I was 12. When I was at school, I spent all my weekends and holidays outside with the dogs and horses.

My initial career choice meant that I wasn’t able to keep dogs as I worked in London and was away from home, although I still helped out with the family dogs at the weekends.

When I bought my own house and got married this enabled me to own dogs again - Springer spaniel and border collie cross. I competed in agility, have taken up CaniCross competing at events around the country and sponsor 3 dogs with the Dogs Trust.

In 2011 I had the opportunity to take a career break from work, and took the opportunity whilst I was off to get some experience in dog grooming.

I have professionally trained at Hartpury College, Gloucester followed by further training and work experience in the award winning dog grooming business and training school, Classic Canine Cuts in Blackwood, South Wales under the expert eye of Claire Hyde.
