A Dog’s Best Fur has been a natural next step for me, as I currently also run A Dog’s Best Friend a well respected & established Dog Walking service for the Gravesend area.
Since I have started I have been asked by so many of my clients “when am I going to learn grooming” so providing both services for your convenience it’s truly a unique service for the North Kent area.
So finally in July 2010, I took the plunge & trained & qualified with The International School of Canine Design - Absolutely Animals Ltd which is a Premier Pet Care Trust Accredited Grooming Training Centre & as such adhere to strict criteria set by the British Dog Groomers’ Association in their Professional Groomers' Charter – a code of practice designed to guarantee the highest standards of customer care & animal welfare & I successfully gained a distinction for City & Guild Level 3 and I am due to take the final written exams in November 2010 and I am to get nothing less than another Distinction of course ....
I was lucky enough to have been trained by Colin Taylor, considered one of the world’s best groomers. He is certified both in the UK and the USA, has been a multi Groom Team USA member during the years 1993,1996,2000,2004 and was a member of Groom Team Scotland in 2007. He has been honored with the title of International Groomer of the Year. Colin Taylor is a well Known Judge and speaker for grooming contests and demonstrations all over the world. I was also trained by Heidi Anderton, who is the owner of Absolutely Animals Ltd, she is now a team member of Groom Team England and has achieved the highest qualifications possible in the UK. Qualification's include, the British Dog Groomers Association’s Higher Grooming Diploma, enabling Heidi to join the Guild of Master Groomers, and also the Guild of Master Craftsman and she is also a well known dog grooming judge.
Everything I do at A Dog’s Best Fur is focused on the well being of your dog & when any dog is brought to me for any type of groom they are given a free health evaluation.
I’m an approved member of the Pet Care Trust & British Dog Groomers Association. So you can have peace of mind knowing that while your dog is in my care it will be groomed to the highest standard and will be given the greatest level of care at all times.
