Meet the Gentle Grooming Team


Here's a description​ of the dog groomers at gentle grooming.

Meet Sam the owner and Dog Grooming Stylist.

I've been grooming dogs since I was 17 yrs old(1998), I worked for a local groomer for the summer holidays but unfortunately she was not able to take me on at that time. But I never gave up looking for a groomer to train me, another local groomer in 2005 gave me a chance. I worked for her and went to college for one day a week for 2 yrs and completed my courses in 2009 and while I was there I trained up another girl who passed with credits. Then it was time to try going it alone and brought my mobile dog grooming van which took off so well I decided to try a salon which has taken off really well, QUALIFICATIONS Studied at Kingston Maurward College.
