Meet the Team


I originally trained as a Geologist and completed my PhD in 2006. It wasn’t until I was living in Perthshire and started grooming my own dogs that I fell in love with grooming and the positive impact it can have on a dogs welfare and happiness. I set up Wagging Tails in 2015 after completing my training at the Ayrshire Academy of Canine Beauticians. I hold a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists. Grooming to me is, and always will be, about promoting the welfare of dogs through a healthy skin and coat.
