Mhairi's grooming skills have heRico (Ch Penling By Design at Namkia)lped show dogs successfully compete across Europe but dogs of all shapes and sizes are sure to recieve the best of care at her Warwickshire grooming salon.

In her teens Mhairi learnt the art of grooming Poodles from long-standing breeders and helped out at a friend's grooming salon during school holidays to learn about other breeds.

After many years working in publishing and PR, Mhairi wantedFraser (Ch Namkia Designed In Ice) a more fulfilling career - preferably one involving animals. Thus she decided to quit her job and turn her love of dog grooming into a full-time career.

Anxious to offer a high quality professional service, Mhairi undertook training at one of the UK's top grooming schools, run by Gill East, an award winning groomer who has trained several of the world's top flight groomers who she is keen to emulate.

She rapidly achieved the City and Guilds/NPTC Level 3 Introduction Certificate in Dog Grooming unit assessments with mainly distinctions, and currently needs just one more unit to complete her Level 3 Diploma in Professional Dog Styling qualification.
