Team andover


My name is Daniella and I’ve been a dog groomer since 2020. I have a Bichon Frise called Lola, who is my whole world. I also own a rabbit, Poppy and a Royal Python, Emmy.

My love for dogs started when I got my first job at a dog boarding kennels. I then studied animal management, behaviour and welfare at Berkshire College of Agriculture, achieving distinction stars across the board; I then went into in-house training to become a dog groomer. Successfully achieving in my in-house training I’m now a fully-fledged Dog stylist. I have done additional studies in dog behaviour, training, canine health and have also completed canine first aid. I’ve been working with dogs all my life and when I started grooming I realised it was definitely the job for me. I absolutely love my job at The Muddy Paw ?


Hi, my name is Imogen, I have a working cocker spaniel named Fergus and I spend a lot of my free time training him. I have also had dogs since I was little.

Since leaving school I went to college to do my level 3 in animal management which I completed in 2019 I then moved onto doing my level 2 dog grooming which I completed at the end of 2020. Alongside these, I worked at a doggy day care for 3 years.

I have been grooming at home for a year now and decided to develop my skills in a salon environment where I can learn from the more experienced stylists I work with. I am now doing my Level 3 whilst working at The Muddy Paw to further my knowledge.


Hello! My name is Megan, I have a 10 year old westie called Archie. Since leaving school, I have done a lot of work with different animals including yard work with horses and a kennel assistant alongside volunteering.

I have completed a Level 3 extended diploma in animal management in 2019 at Sparsholt College. I then decided I wanted to pursue a dog grooming career which led me to study Level 2 Dog Grooming Assistant which I have now completed.  I will eventually be going on to complete my Level 3.
