My name is Katia Jardine and I have been a dog groomer since September of 2011 following a 6-week full time intensive course. What attracted me to this course in particular was the fact that the trainer taught us how to groom dogs without restraints, just dog psychology, touch and lots of love and patience. I have found this to work wonders as dogs appear to be a lot calmer and actually enjoy going to the groomers!
I am a member of the Pet Care Trust and the British Dog Groomers Association. I keep myself updated by constantly learning new techniques, attending shows (Festival of Grooming), seminars and championships (British Dog Grooming Championship) and reading a number of magazines, blogs and publications of the grooming world.
My background includes a BA in Music and a Diploma in Business Management plus an extensive career in marketing, most recently as an online marketing consultant (shame I never seem to have the time to apply these techniques myself!). After 20 odd years working in an office based environment I was compelled to do something that would be a bit more hands on, use my love of dogs and arts & crafts and hence Waggy Tails Grooming was born!
