Hi, I’m Jackie and I have been a Professional Dog Groomer since 2013. I hold a City & Guilds Level 3 Dog Grooming Qualification and an OCN Level 3 Diploma in Professional Dog Grooming Qualification. I am also a Qualified Level 3 Tutor in Education and Training (RQF).
I chose to undertake one-to-one training with Jitka Krizova who is one of the best, award winning groomers in Europe.
Here at Pawsome Paws we treat and care for your dogs as if they were our own. After all, our pooches are impawtant member of our families!
The salon is based around your dog having the best quality, professional and natural products for their groom. We have the passion, love, knowledge and skills to give the upmost attention to detail for all our furry customers. We are fully insured and the business is registered with Lichfield District Council.
As a Groomer I have the best job in the world! My days are filled with wet noses, slobbery kisses and wagging tails.
I am an avid dog lover! Alongside running my grooming and training business, I also volunteer for the charity The Animal Team as a registered Home Checker for potential dog adopters.
I’m also a member of Poodle Network UK where I foster and assess poodles in my home before they are placed with a suitable forever home.
Also along with my own Standard Poodle, Ava, we are volunteers for Pets as Therapy where we go into our local nursing homes and our local children’s hospice, Acorns.
Our Training Academy
I am honoured to be able to offer the courses from my salon. You will have plenty of attention and support as I only train a maximum of 2 students at any one time. The salon has a nice, comfortable and relaxed feel. You will see customers face to face and learn how to interact not only with the dogs but the customers too.
Managing our clients’ expectations is one of the hardest parts of grooming!
During training you will have hands on dogs from day one, no sharing or shortage of dogs as I have seen with other training providers. Your progression and development will be assessed as you go along and it’s such a wonderful feeling when you see photo’s and evidence of your development. Your confidence and speed will grow with every day in the salon.
You will groom a wide variety of dogs, some to breed standard and some to the customers personal requirements.
You will groom pedigree dogs and cross breeds so you will have plenty of tutoring and hands on experience with the different techniques used with clipping, scissoring and styling. You will also groom plenty of dogs in the ever popular ‘puppy cut’ or ‘teddy bear trim’.
I have a teaching assistant background working in High Schools and I’m also a Qualified Tutor in Award in Level 3 Education and Training (RQF). Teaching and helping students grow, progress and have the ability to go forward with absolute confidence in their career is my personal goal for each student who comes through the door.
So let’s get you on your way in your career of being a Qualified Professional Dog Groomer with Nationally Recognised Qualifications.!
