Styling for the modern mutt
Our mission is simple: we want to take dog grooming to a new level to help your pet, and you, live your best life. To complement this we've curated an array of purposeful and beautiful doggy products from around the world.
MEET THE TEAM
For our styling trainer Maria, dogs are her daily therapy. She just loves getting groovy with shears – whether that’s styling our canine clients or mowing her lawn in perfect lines. Oh and she loves chilling out with a bit of knitting. Thanks to lockdown, Maria’s niece now has a full wardrobe of knitted clothes…lucky thing! As someone who road-tripped through Spain, naturally you’ll also find Maria salsa dancing and sipping Sangria. My favourite breed: Staffie, as they are fun-loving and protective of loved ones.
As someone who doesn’t like questionnaires (does anyone unless there’s a £20 incentive?), we just had to let Sophia take her photo with Verdi, her Retriever, to get the lowdown. After all, they both have a lot in common, including long walks in the woods or by the river Thames. Sophia’s love of pups started when she was young, visiting her grandparents to play with their dogs. Now she shares her love of baking with the team, keeping the Doggy Styling groomers fuelled with fresh cakes. My favourite place: Italy… Bellissima!
They say good things come in threes, but for Jeni, the best things come in twos – two lovely daughters and two Yorkshire Terriers. Jeni loves Yorkies because they’re always on the lookout for adventure. And as she says: “When a dog is in your life, there is a reason to smile.” We think that’s sound. A Bulgarian native and a self-confessed party animal, Jeni won’t be too far from a BBQ with some friends. As for a dream guest…has anyone got Channing Tatum’s number? My favourite hobby: Running – it’s a way of life.
Hannah’s love of animals is clear to see, from dog grooming to being the mummy of a leopard gecko. Hannah became a dog groomer as it was the most rewarding way to work with animals and we’d agree with that. If she could be a dog for a day - and who wouldn’t want to - she’d be an Irish Setter, as they both love flicking their hair. A talented pianist, you’ll find Hannah playing the Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven the composer, not the famous film dog… obviously. I really love: animal and landscape photography. My style icon: Taylor Swift.
After a long day in the salon, you can’t beat a bit of retail therapy. Isn’t that right, Summer? Sorry, she’s trying on more clothes. Perhaps she’s looking for a new outfit to wear on her next trip to Barcelona. A bit of a rock legend, Summer’s secret talent is a couple of sets on the drums. Even in her spare time, Summer is always looking to ‘level-up’ her grooming, practising quick-finger combos with Star Wars Jedi on the Playstation. The force is strong with this one. My favourite breed: Golden Retriever, as we’re both jovial and have blonde hair.
If you are passionate about dogs and their welfare, then we would love to hear from you. We have a fantastic opportunity for a highly skilled dog groomer to join our team. Minimum 2 years experience. Email your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What Sets Us Apart
I started Doggy Styling to disrupt the dog grooming industry, in terms of the process, care and quality. I had taken my own dog, Milou the Bichon, to salons all over Surrey, but always left disappointed.
I wanted to create a destination for proper style. Something that truly put a smile on the faces of both dog owners and their pets.
