I have one dog of my own, Winnie, I rescued her through a charity rehoming Street dogs from Romania in April 2021.
I have been grooming dogs for over 10 years. I started out volunteering at a salon in Knowle bathing and drying dogs, from there I enrolled on to a dog grooming course at Moreton Morrell College where I completed my City & Guilds Level 2 & 3. I became fully qualified in 2018 after gaining my OCN Level 3 Diploma, you can find me on the The Groomers Spotlight a directory of qualified dog groomers. I have worked in salons in Coventry, Birmingham, Solihull, Evesham, Stratford Upon Avon and the last few years I have been working in Leamington Spa.
I love learning and in this job that never stops, I look forward to attending courses and seminars to try and improve my skills as a dog groomer. This year I have started my journey to gain ICMG UK (International Certified Master Groomer) qualification. Training other aspiring dog groomers is something else I really enjoy and I hope that in time with the growing success of What the Pup this is something we will be able to offer.
Breeds I most enjoy grooming are Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, Cockerpoos/Cavapoos, Doodles, Bichons, Terriers. I am no expert at any particular breed but I always try my best to meet customer expectations, and work to a high standard.
