My Story

June 2020 I experienced my own personal tragedy, in the midst of the pandemic, and my life was changed forever. I re-evaluated my life and as part of my own recovery I embarked on my training to become a dog groomer.

After each training day I would go home and show my husband the before and after pictures of my grooms. He always said that the dogs looked really happy in the before photos and really miserable in the after photos, much to my frustration, I would rather that he said how well the grooms looked, but he had a point. This got me paying much more attention to what affect the groom was having on the dogs.

One of the tutors had noticed the calming affect I had on the dogs and advised me to look up Stephanie Zickmann and Holistic Grooming. I finished my Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming & Salon Management in the June 2021 and started my Level 5 Holistic Grooming & Behaviour Diploma in the August, and the rest as they say is history! Although it isn't as the moment I graduated from that I completed my DAATA (canine dermatology) L1 and am about to start my L2.

As I relatively new pet professional, I pride myself in the fact that the dogs literally cannot get through the door quick enough to see me, and the guardians all say that whenever they pass my house the dogs always try to come in. I feel really lucky that I have such great customers, who sought me out because they want the kind of individual service that I offer, and hope to grow the service so I can help more dogs find the pleasure in grooming.

There have been a few clues over the years, that I would one day be working with dogs.

Here I am on my birthday with my present, an Old English Sheepdog cuddly toy I picked from the toy shop in Hawick. I slept with my giant snoopy every night, as well as having every snoopy merchandise going. I had one of those joke invisible dog leads.

Here are the 3 dogs I grew up with . I took the

Border Terrier to my school end of term activity week for dog training. He managed to wee up most people's legs and won waggiest tail award as he was useless at everything else!

In recent years I used

to walk the long way

to work so I could get

free cuddles with

dogs, when my

husband suggested

I should consider

becoming a dog
