Hi my name is Leah, I am co owner of Beautipets and the Head Groomer/stylist and Tutor.
I have been grooming for two decades now.
I was able to pursue my dream of being a dog groomer after I was made redundant from my employment in 2000 and found myself in a position to take up the training for a career I had always wanted to do.
There has never been a day since then that I have not enjoyed my time of grooming dogs. I consider myself to be very lucky and fortunate to be able to meet so many dogs and to build a trusting relationship with them too.
I keep up with my Training as I feel it’s important to keep up with new styles and or procedures as well as what’s best for your dogs.
I have been accredited with my City and Guilds L3 Diploma, Level 3 award in Education and Training(RQF). Caine First Aid Certificate. I am also currently a member of IMCG (international masters certified groomers)
I have always been a pet lover and currently my 6 gorgeous pooches own me. These consist of 4 Bichon Frise, Lhasa Apso and Australian Silky Terrier.
Michelle and I show our Bichon's and qualifie for Crufts most years, I also show my Austrailian Terrier. I often participate in Grooming Competitions and have come 1st in Scissoring Style with my Bichon frise and also 2nd in Hand stripping a Cocker Spaniel.
Michelle is the Salon Manager and co owner, she overseas all of the day to day business of our busy Salon. Michelle very rarely grooms now due to a back injury, however she makes the exception of grooming her own fur babies. Also as part of our team we also Have Suzy who trained with us many years ago, and is now one of our professional groomers. We also have Bex who joined our team in 2022. Bex is a professional dog groomer and also specialises in grooming and showing of Guinea pigs.
