I have been in the dog world for over 30 years starting with Irish Setters as a young junior handler. When I left school I went to residential college to gain my qualifications in Animal Care, Kennel & Cattery Management and Dog Grooming knowing that this was the career path I wanted to take.
My English Setters came along around 15 years ago and in that time I have made up 7 UK Show Champions. I have won numerous top awards at dog shows including many first prizes at Crufts. I Judge dog shows in the UK and abroad and have become the official photographer for The Kennel Club's working gundog tests and events which includes the HPR (Hunt Point Retrieve) and Cocker Spaniel Championships.
Over the 25 years as a dog groomer I have groomed many dogs from family pets to Crufts winning show dogs. I have previously run a very successful grooming parlour within a local busy boarding kennel.
