"I’m Abby, I have been a dog groomer since I was 16 years old and opened up my own salon just over a year ago, in the middle of the lockdown. I adore grooming all breeds but especially wool coats! I love teddy cuts and like to try out new styles whenever I can. I could talk about dog grooming, products and equipment all day long so if you ever want any advice, I’m always happy to help out fellow groomers and owners!"

Thomas McDonald - Brand Ambassador

From starting out my career as a joiner when I left school, I took advantage of being made redundant in the hardship of the recession. I turned my love and admiration for animals into a career. I started out visiting salons and getting a feel for the dog grooming industry, working from home and quietly building my portfolio. An opportunity came up to be salon manager for one of the biggest UK pet stores in the industry. From there I worked as salon manager in dog grooming for two years, I was then asked to open and grow a new salon.

During this time I completed City & Guilds L3 diploma in Dog Grooming. After a further two years the passion and drive inside me to open my own business grew stronger and I finally took the best risk of my life. I started small, working from home and with the help of Invest N.I I opened my own salon in Cookstown. The success of the salon continues to grow. Proudly two years ago I teamed up with iPet Network and I have now opened a grooming school in the heart of Mid-Ulster alongside our very busy dog grooming business.

We offer a host of formal qualifications in the dog grooming and pet industry. Our most popular course is L3 Diploma in Dog Grooming which is delivered through iPet Network and regulated through OFQUAL. Having years of knowledge and skills behind me I passionately enjoy teaching some very talented students achieve their goals. As for me I believe you never stop learning, I continue to attend seminars to gain knowledge from the best in the industry alongside competing in competitions and also being part of a team who run N.I Grooming Challenge and N.I Grooming Championship.
