Hello and thank you for taking a look at my website.
My name is shelley jackson and i am Newmarket born and bred. my working career has been varied but, always within the caring field, - nursing, community care & complementary therapies (which I still practise part time). i now want to make my love for dogs into a career.
i set on the path of dog grooming due to owning a cockerpoo who needed regular grooming. I often found that I hAD to wait a minimum of 2 weeks before I could get her booked in anywhere. I thought about grooming her myself instead so, looked into dog grooming courses, of which i found many. having researched it all, I thought, if I'm going to do this, I'm going to do it properly. this took me to otley college, AS I LIVED IN IPSWICH AT THE TIME, who run the City & guilds courses. I BEGAN MY FIRST course, L2 DOG GROOMING ASSISTANT IN SEPTEMBER 2018 & quickly realised that I wanted to do it as a job, NOT JUST TO BE ABLE TO GROOM MY COCKERPOO PROFICIENTLY. AFTER COMPLETING AND PASSING THE L2 CERTIFICATE, I THEN WENT BACK TO OTLEY (NOW CALLED SUFFOLK RURAL COLLEGE) TO COMPLETE THE C&G L3 DOG GROOMING DIPLOMA. I also COMPLETED A Canine FIRST AID COURSE INBETWEEN THE 2 DOG GROOMING COURSES,
for those who know me, know how much I love and care about DOGS, I am especially passionate about rescue dogs. I have 2 rescue dogs myself, (middle pic) harley, a pointer cross, rescued from the streets of athens by gar (greek animal rescue) and bella, a cockerpoo, dumped by a puppy farm when she had served her purpose, and rescued by the many tears rescue shelter in wales.
whilst on holiday in santorini in 2018, I rescued a puppy I found wandering around on his own (he was only 8/9 weeks old). with the amazing help of GAR and the local vet in santorini, he was treated & looked after until he was old enough to travel. he was then adopted by my daughter and her partner. He now lives close to us, so I see him regularly (that's him in the bottom pic, on the drive home after collecting him from his long journey over from greece. I HAVE ALSO RAISED MUCH NEEDED FOOD, BEDS, BEDDING, TREATS & TOYS FOR RESCUE SHELTERS IN GREECE, AGAIN THROUGH GAR.
HAVING NOW COMPLETED BOTH MY L2 & L3 C&G COURSES, I HAVE BEEN GROOMING AS A BUSINESS FOR JUST OVER A YEAR NOW AND HAVE SLOWLY BUT SURELY BUILT UP A WONDERFUL CLIENT LIST.
IT WOULD BE LOVELY TO meet your canine family, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE PHOTOS ON MY GALLERY, TAKEN FROM MY FIRST BOOKINGS AS A BUSINESS AND THEN FOLLOWING ON AS I GAINED MORE EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE THROUGH MY L3 DIPLOMA, TO THE PRESENT DAY.
