I established my Dog Grooming Parlour in July 2009 after successfully completing a training course at Classic Canine Cuts of Blackwood to obtain my Commercial Dog Grooming Certification. Before this I studied at Pencoed College where I successfully attained a BTEC National Diploma (Level 3) in Animal Management.
As you can tell I have always wanted to work with animals and have gained previous experience on a local farm, at a veterinary surgery and at a boarding kennel. In 2008 I became a Registered Pet Sitter and my details can be found on the National Association of Registered Pet Sitters (NARP) web site.
I hold an NARP insurance policy which covers Pet Sitting and Dog Grooming, and I have been fully checked by the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB – Standard Check). Every Summer I like to organise a sponsored charity dog walk in aid of Guide Dogs for the Blind. £160 was raised this year and all of the dogs and their families that came along had a really great time. My salon is always cleaned between each grooming, and your dog’s comfort is looked after with an electric heater and air conditioning unit set at suitable temperatures.
