Meet Karley

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I am Karley, the owner of WAGS dog grooming.

I have always adored dogs! From the age of one I would drag a toy dog on wheels around the house (I called him Toto as I was obsessed with the Wizard of Oz!). My Mum wouldn’t let me get a real dog as my track record with pets wasn’t great; I got bored of my hamster Pepsi after a week, leaving my Dad to clean his cage every day for five years.

The two rabbits we adopted were supposed to be girls. Imagine our surprise when eight new-born bunnies appeared one morning! Turns out that rabbit Paul was actually rabbit Paula!

So as much as I begged, I was never allowed a dog.

At the ripe old age of 28 I thought the time was right to finally get a dog! My husband and I welcomed Mollie the very cute (and very noisy) Miniature Schnauzer into our home. It was then that I decided to take up dog grooming and I haven’t looked back since!

I now get the opportunity to make up for my dog-deprived years by playing with dogs every single day and get paid to do it! Brilliant!

“I did the 1 day grooming taster course at WAGS and absolutely loved it. The staff, in particular Liz and Karley, were very helpful and supportive and answered every question I had.”

“I felt very well supported throughout the course. The tutors were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Really enjoyed the course. Each session was well prepared and well communicated. Brilliant!”

Kirsty J

“The tutors Karley and Liz are very knowledgeable in their field. After completing the diploma I feel very confident in grooming the different breeds of dog. I had a great experience at WAGS.”
