Hello....I'm Sophie....

I'm a City & Guilds qualified dog groomer based in the middle

of Thruxton Village (near Andover, Hampshire).  I began studying dog grooming at Sparsholt College in February 2018 and passed my exams for Level 3 in July 2019.

I've been grooming now for over 3 years and naturally have a very kind and gentle approach for even the most timid of dogs, whilst also being a confident handler with the more challenging and aggressive ones (usually due to anxiety too!)

This is me above, with my Airedale, Zachary - a fun-loving and sometimes naughty boy, who has been a great training model and was my inspiration to start professional grooming.

....and this is the bubble hut

I set up the bubble hut 2 years ago in my garden log

cabin - converting it to a lovely clean and bright grooming salon with the latest equipment. All the dogs who've visited so far have been happy, relaxed and comfortable in the environment I've created.

It's a very peaceful pool-side setting and, because I offer no more than 2-3 appointments each day, your doggy will be given all the time he or she needs for a relaxed grooming experience, including plenty of breaks in a large, safe garden and special individual attention throughout his/her time here.
