Chloe holds the professional City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Dog Grooming Stylists
I am a fully qualified groomer holding the City & Guilds 7763-03 Diploma for Dog Grooming Stylists. I have been grooming since 2013 when I joined Canis as an apprentice, but before that I trained at Abingdon and Witney College in Animal Care. Since joining Canis I have achieved my Level 2 apprenticeship qualification in Dog Grooming and I hold the City & Guilds 7763-03 Certificate in Dog Grooming and I have now passed the 7763-03 Practical Modules for Diploma for Dog Grooming Stylists (chosen breeds: Border Terrier (handstrip), English Cocker Spaniel, West Highland White Terrier, and Miniature Schnauzer: I am a professionally qualified dog groomer under the City & Guilds framework. My next challenge is a course at Abingdon & Witney - Certificate in Education and Training.
One of my career highlights: I was really excited by my first ever grooming competition in 2015 when I won first place in the Newcomers' Handstrip Class at the British Dog Grooming Championships, and then went on to become Runner Up Newcomer of the Year. I won my award by handstripping a Border Terrier. My specialist skills are in handstripping, but also I like to work with the little dogs that are somehow a bit worried by being groomed - they seem to be very calm in my hands. I like to stay up to date with new techniques and equipment so I have attended a number of grooming shows, pet trade events, Crufts, and a Labradoodle Grooming Seminar with Julie Harris, a Master Groomer and Senior Examiner for City & Guilds qualifications and the Pet Industry Federations Higher Diploma Exams.
I hold a current Pet First Aid Certificate and I have trained with Sophie Bell, MRCVS, of Animal Love First Aid.
I am also the owner of a Beauceron (a large livestock guarding dog). Just like Judy, I am partial to a spot of G&T in the evening, but preferably one of the artisan made varieties! Faves on TV: Game of Thrones!
