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, who run the City & guilds courses. I began the course in Sept 2018 and quickly realised that i wanted to do it as a job. I am now qualified at L2. i returned to otley college (now known as Suffolk Rural) in Sept 2019, to further my knowledge of grooming, by beginning the city & guilds l3 qualification. I am also qualified in Canine first aid, which again, I completed at Otley College,
for those who know me, know how much i love and care about dogs (well, all animals really), 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, we rescued a puppy who we 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 to say, i'm so excited about my new venture and really am looking forward to meeting your canine family.
