I am a local man, born and bred in Scotter, where I now live with my own family.

I have always loved animals and had many pets over the years.  I used to provide reptiles and invertebrates for TV and film productions and had a reptile room at home housing multiple weird and wonderful species. My wife now limits my collection somewhat and currently residing with us at home are snakes, lizards, chickens, ferrets, guinea pigs, fish, hedgehogs, cats and of course a dog.

It was our beautiful standard poodle, Otto who started my career in grooming. I qualified with the City and Guilds level 3 Dog Grooming and then the City and Guilds Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists at Grimsby institute. I spent 4 years at college achieving these professional qualifications.  Dog grooming is a brilliant career choice for me as it fulfils my perfectionist streak and I thoroughly enjoy working with dogsof all sizes and breeds. I am experienced in all aspects of dog grooming, from simple pet trims to technically styled show trims and hand stripping.

I have previously worked at a busy dog grooming salon and for a dog rescue charity where I worked with lots of dogs who were anxious about different aspects of grooming.  It gives me great satisfaction helping dogs to relax and remain calmthroughout their time at the salon, and also to work with the owner to groom their dog to their own requirements.

Having used Corner Cottage for boarding for many years, and knowing how passionate Trudy and Andy are about their business, I was very excited when the opportunity to join their team arose.

I am looking forward to welcoming new and existing grooming clients to Corner Cottage. I can’t wait to meet you and your four legged friends.

My whole life I have surrounded myself with animals.  Growing up around horses, dogs, cats and the small furries such as guinea pigs and rabbits; was a sure way of starting as I meant to go on and giving me the love for animals that I have.

I have a professional background in management, working for the local government but this was simply a stepping stone to my lifelong passion of working with animals.

I am a fully qualified microchip implanter, Level 2 City and Guilds qualified Dog Groomer and am at present finalising my studies to achieve my Level 3 City and Guilds Diploma.

I developed my own stud of English Lop rabbits and for 10 years I put my heart and soul into breeding and improving standards of this wonderful breed.  Exhibiting and winning shows all over the UK.  I soon become well recognised for the quality of my rabbits and my absolute dedication to rabbit welfare and husbandry.

Being a dog groomer and dog lover I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I have 4 dogs of my own!  I have to confess that Bulldogs are my greatest love, of which I have 2 (Luther and Kovac). I also have a rather quirky French Bulldog x Chihuahua (Kinder) that I bought home after a day microchipping dogs across the county and more recently, our newest family member a Bichon Frise (Maddie).  She is very different to the breeds I am use to but with my passion for dog grooming and my competitive nature I feel that grooming competitions are something for me to aim for in the future! So watch this space!

I am really looking forward to meeting the existing and new clients and all of their four legged family members in the Corner Cottage Grooming Salon.
