Why choose me

My name is Lucy and I am the owner of The Dog Yard a professional grooming salon in Biddenham.

I specialise in making dogs look and feel good, there is nothing better than seeing a dog walk out of the salon with a shiny well maintained coat and a great hair cut, lets face it we all want that feeling when we leave the hairdressers.

A brief history

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

A bit about me

As a dog owner myself I understand that these furry creatures are a part of your family and you don't want to leave them with just anyone, my daughters tell me regularly that Dylan and Pandora have far more love and attention from me than they do. 

I am passionate about being a good dog groomer and have taken the time to get a qualification as I wanted to learn and understand the different breeds of dogs, coat types, anatomy and diseases alongside some of the best techniques in scissoring, hand stripping and clipping but most of all I wanted to be able to offer a professional dog grooming service in a safe and secure environment dedicated to making your dogs healthy, happy and look good.

Qualifications

I am trained to level 3 City and Guilds and attended the prestigious GroomArts Academy Under the tutorage of Laura Campanella who is widely recognised throughout the UK and Europe as one of the best groomers in the industry. I will continue to train, learn new skills and bring new techniques to my customers making sure I can always work to the best standard possible.

Whilst your dog is in my care I am responsible for its needs and well being and work within the Animal Welfare Act guide lines at all times. Dogs need to be safe, I will ensure that there is nothing that could harm or cause unnecessary stress to your dog during the grooming process and make sure they have access to fresh water and comfort breaks when needed.

The Salon

The Dog Yard is based from my home, there is plenty of off road parking and the brand new salon has been fitted out with the the best professional equipment on the market allowing me to groom all sizes, shapes and ages of dogs without putting any unnecessary strain on them or me. At The Dog Yard we work closely with our suppliers to bring innovative products to our customers, we work alongside industry best practice and are fully insured and pet first aid trained. Please feel free to come and see me, discuss your requirements and take a look round for yourself.
