Grooming is preventative health care for dogs. Regular grooming is good care for your dogs’ skin and coat. The removal of dead hair, mats and knotted locks which pull on the skin can cause sores, irritation and itching. Tangled matted coats often conceal dirt, fleas, mites and ticks. Please visit your vet for advice about parasites before going to a groomer.
Cockapoos, Cavapoos and wool coats, I scissor. I do not clip these coats as clipping changes the texture and colour of the coat. Once clipped, the original coat rarely returns.
Spaniels , Dachshunds, Schnauzers and some Terriers I handstrip these coats for the same reasons as wool coats.

I have added Grooming to my skills within the training and canine care I do with dogs. In October and November 2017, I trained at the Dog Grooming studio in Tooting, London on the City & Guilds Level 3 Introduction to Dog Grooming course. I love this skill, it’s addictive. It requires patience and attention to details. I bring the information of preventative care into the dog training classes on Tuesday evenings.
In June 2018, I passed my City & Guilds Level 3 Dip in Handstripping.
