CHRISTMAS…. I know, it’s only October! But, the diary is rapidly filling up for Christmas.
If you would like your dog done before the festive season please get in touch!
A question we get asked frequently is about dog trainers, We do work very closely with 3 local trainers and with their guidance we have had some big success stories with a few customers that for one reason or another hate being groomed.
All of these trainers use positive reinforcement training for your dog, they cover sessions for dogs of all shapes and sizes, young and old, from all different backgrounds requiring all different needs.

Me and my Dottie completed our puppy training classes with Zoe. We have great fun and I had a very tired puppy at the end of the evening!
I also recently attended a Fear of Fireworks Dog seminar with Zoe and Jeni. These ladies really do know their stuff.
Jeni Pirie – http://www.mypetgets.co.uk/
We are currently working very slowly with Jeni and a gorgeous boy called Leo.
You can follow Leo’s story at www.1dogatatimerescue.org it really is a tear jerker so have your tissues ready. I personally have taken a huge shine to Leo, his confidence is growing n his visits so quickly!
Dan Callaghan – Barkers Trail Dog Academy
Dan has assisted us over the last year with a few very nervous dogs that really hated being groomed. With his help, mum and dad putting the effort in too we now have some very happy dogs that come in to see us.
Adam Delderfield – https://www.deldersdogs.com
Adam has been a client of mine for over 3 years now with his Australian Doodles Buddy & Chester so we were super proud of him when he won Battersea Dog Trainer of the year this year – well done Adam
Check out their website and Facebook pages for details of all the services they offer. These guys really are great.
Where Are We
A question I get asked more than nice a week, I’ve been known to get in my car and go find people before now!
We are located on Crownhill Industrial Estate. We are off the H5 Portway. You need to turn into Presley way and we are the third turning on the left, under the archway, follow it all the way to the back to the trees and turn left. Some cars do not recognise MK8 0AJ as our postcode, but it is us!
British Dog Groomers Association
In March this year, I was flattered to be invited to a meeting with the British Dog Groomers Association for an application to go on their committee.
Coming from a corporate background years ago, I knew how to handle myself in a meeting environment, but, to be sitting in a room with Groomers that you looked up to and had total admiration for was something else!
After spending a day with all these fabulous people I was thrilled that they asked me to join.
It’s a very exciting time for me and the team over the next few months.
Most of you may know I’ve recently undergone quite a big operation on my arm so am currently not able to groom until later this year… it’s very frustrating for me as I’m such a hands-on boss so I’m finding not being able to groom a real struggle… Claire my salon manager is doing a fabulous job at filling my shoes while I’m unable to groom and I’m in the salon as much as I can be to say hello and see your beautiful pets. But currently looking at October?! Before I can return to work fully.
