I have lived in St Austell for nearly 20 years and consider it very much my home.
I love my job and feel very lucky every day I have over 30 years of experience with dogs. Growing up we always had a house full of dogs, pedigrees and crosses from German Shepherds and Dobamans to Pekingese and Yorkshire terriers.
I always loved grooming day as a child, I loved the way the dog would strut around showing off to the other dogs how happy they were and how nice they looked, I trained with Mandy a professional Dog Whisperer / Dog Groomer and my best friend for over 20 years, Mandy is based in Nottinghamshire and runs a dog rehabilitation centre for dogs with behaviour problems she is amazing at what she does and I feel very lucky to have been trained by her.
My Girls, Sansa & Arya 6 month old sisters (Czechoslovakian Wolf dogs). The most gentle intelligent sweetest dogs I've ever owned. Luna the old girl (9 years old) Lab cross took on the role of mum straight from the start with lots of play and telling`s off although a lot bigger than her now she is still the boss.

Puppy`s First Few Grooms(Best age is around 4 months old)
Puppies are groomed by hand at first they are encouraged and praised for good behaviour; introduction to equipment is done gradually over 2 to 3 grooming sessions to help build confidence. First puppy groom is usually a face feet and bottom tidy a bath can be included if necessary or requested. Treats are given after the groom as a reward.
You are always welcome to phone me to arrange a pop in visit for puppy and me to meet before the day of their appointment.
Elderly and Nervous DogsNervous dogs are offered the last appointment of the day and are groomed at their pace I often find that with patience and consistency over time we become friends and they start to enjoy being groomed, Trust is everything. Elderly dogs are also offered the last appointment of the day and are given unrestricted rest time and if necessary groomed to the very best of my ability with the dog lying down.
No Cages or Cabin DryersAll dogs are gently secured with a lead up on the grooming table for their own safety NONE of the dogs I groom are put into cages or cabin dryers at any time waiting or drying, All dogs are dried by hand on a table top.
Appointments, Dropping off & Collection`sPlease be punctual as all appointments are tailored for your dogs and set for the day. Appointments usually take around 1½ to 3 hours depending on each individual dog so please allow for this.
