My name is Aurora, I have recently graduated from Angels Grooming Academy completing all four levels from beginner to advanced. Angels is the most highly regarded grooming academy in the country and teaches a thorough and intensive program all under the watchful eye of a master groomer. Through my time at the academy, I have groomed a large variety of dogs with a large variety of coats including breed standard cuts and have finished my studies confident in both my handling and grooming abilities.
Pet grooming is unfortunately an unregulated industry, so many groomers who provide the service have not actually received any formal training or qualifications which can be dangerous for the animal and make it a much more unpleasant experience for both the dog and the owner. It was of the utmost importance that before I endeavour into my grooming career that I receive the best training available to provide the safest, kindest and most enjoyable grooming experience for all involved.

Prior to my studies I have been a staff member at Top Notch kennels for over a year so am already familiar with many of our frequent visitors and gained experience with handling and managing dogs which gave me a great head start as handling an uncooperative dog can be half the battle with completing a successful groom!
Dogs have been my passion since I was a little girl so to begin a career looking after the health and well-being of (in my opinion) the best pets in the world are an absolute dream come true and I very much look forward to grooming your beloved fur-babies!
Please note: all dogs will require an up to date multivaccination e.g. DHPPi or Van +5. Evidence of this will need to be provided, if not already on file with us.
