About Me


Full Grooming and Care for your Dog

My name is Jill,  I have a purpose built salon in Langport, Somerset, which offers a quiet and relaxed atmosphere in which your dog can be given the time, treatments and care that they deserve.  No dog is too big or too small and all coats and breeds can be catered for.  Puppy Grooming School packages are encouraged as soon as your new friend is fully vaccinated which is very beneficial to their socialisation.

On your first visit a full history will be taken from you regarding your pet, including any health problems or special requirements.   All shampoo's, colognes and treats (if diet allows) are organic, natural and safe for all coat and skin types.  Every groom includes ear cleaning and nail trimming if needed.  Prices are all based on breed, temperament and coat condition.   

For the last four years or so I have been working within a dog grooming environment and have learnt the trade from the ground up.  I am fully qualified with a OCN Diploma in Dog Grooming.  I also hold  City & Guilds Level 3 in Dog Grooming as well as certificates in Canine First Aid and Compassionate Handling and Behaviour.  I attend teaching sessions and seminars regularly to make sure that my knowledge and skills are up to date.  As a family we share our home with a Show Cocker Spaniel called Dot and previously adopted two ex-racing Greyhounds who lived to the ripe old age of 13 and 10 years old.


I am A Member of the BDGA, PIF & The Groomers Spotlight

I am proud to be a member of the British Dog Groomers' Association and also subscribe to the Pet Industry Federation Members' Charter.  By doing this I agree to abide by their ten-point charter as well as working to a code of conduct.  Details of this can be found in the salon and on the My Pet People Website.    As  a  fully  qualified  dog groomer  I  am  also  a  memeber  of  The  Groomers  Spotlight   click  to  find  out  more.


Satisfaction Guaranteed

Working on a one to one basis I am  prepared for any dogs' needs and ensure that your pet will receive the best care and love. Their happiness whilst being groomed is my priority as this helps to contribute to their all round wellbeing.  I provide a professional dog grooming service that I would want for Dot, my own dog  to receive.
