AMY – OWNER & HEAD GROOMER (pictured with Coco the Yorkshire terrier)
My name is Amy, I have a passion for enhancing the health and wellbeing of pets through the provision of top quality, complete holistic grooming services in association with pet wellness. Our pets are our priority, part of our families and I firmly believe they deserve to be properly cared for with only the very best of service providers.
I have been a pet stylist for over 18 years, grooming pets at salons across the UK. I specialize in grooming Doodles of all varieties and am now back out competing in grooming competitions in 2020 after a break! Im pleased to say, I was awarded 1st place in my division at Master Groom 2020 – this is an international competition against groomers across the globe. You may have seen me in the local papers!
I am not only an experienced groomer, but i hold the following qualifications:
Level 3 CPD Certificate in Advanced Dog Grooming
Level 3 CPD Certificate in Canine Wellbieng.
Level 1 Animal Reiki Practitioner
NDAM & BSc Qualified in Animal Management
Edexel Certificate in Veterinary Medicine
Canine First Aid trained
Having completed moduled training at the prestigious Look North Grooming and Training Centre in Keighley, West Yorkshire alongside Master groomers of GroomTeam England, my training and skills are honed by continuous career development attending seminars and exhibitions nationwide. Our grooming standards are exceptionally high and we always turn out dogs to clients looking and feeling absolutely fabulous.
I strive to provide a warm, welcoming environment, equipped with the very best professional facilities, using a specialist range of natural, environmentally friendly salon grade products and top of the range equipment.
Cabinet driers, cages and harsh handling methods are an absolute NO NO in my salon. I work with pets in a positive, loving and relaxed manner to ensure they leave me feeling healthy, content and spoilt as well as looking absolutely amazing – just as i would like my own dog to. I have tailored my services to provide a fantastic experience whether your pet is having an express wash, owner workshop or a luxury full groom – they are sure to thoroughly enjoy their time with me.
JESSIE – SALON MANAGERESS (pictured with Amy)
Hi, I’m Jessie and I am the salon manageress here at GoldWalk. I’ve been grooming for a number of years now and share the same passion, values and ethics as Amy. Grooming is more than a job to me – its a lifestyle.
I’ve worked in many salons from small independent ventures to large corporations. However, my heart is happy here at GoldWalk as I get to work solely for the dogs with no pressure on hitting targets, no harsh handling methods and within a happy, relaxed environment that is all about the dog as priority. I specialize in the same as Amy, Doodles & Asian fusion and hope to compete this year too. Watch this space!
My rescue dog Saxon and elderly Labrador, Harley are my little worlds, in our spare time we love to explore the countryside, learn new tricks and sleep!
