Chic stands for ‘Calm, Happy, Individual Care’!
We spend as much time as is needed with our clients ensuring they are relaxed and settled with us, making their experience of grooming a positive one and one that they are happy to come back to.
We have some clients who can’t wait to get through the door to see us which is very gratifying and makes all the individual time and care taken worthwhile.

After over 30 years’ working in various businesses at Director level and also as a Practice Manager, I was becoming frustrated that I wasn't using the creative flair that I knew I had. I then decided, relatively late in my career, to retrain and follow a completely different path.
One of my biggest passions throughout my entire life has been my dogs and I wanted to ensure that all of my dogs, (and I have a few!) many of whom are rescue dogs with different needs and temperaments, were as happy when with others being groomed as they would be in their own home.
Over the years I have tried various salons of different sizes and varying levels of professionalism and have always been frustrated about my perceived concerns about the lack of personal and sensitive care with emphasis being, it would appear, on volume and not quality.
I have a special interest in needy, disabled or sensitive dogs who need and deserve extra special care and attention and being able to give them the best attention and support that I can in a calm relaxed and caring environment has always been my greatest desire and the reason why Chic now exists.
I studied at Plumpton College in Sussex where I obtained my City and Guilds qualification with distinction.
I am also aware of the importance to keep regularly updated on all and anything that the industry has to offer and I maintain the policy of regularly attending seminars on different aspects of dog grooming from specialist head styles to dog behaviour, First Aid , dog massage or scissoring techniques.
Consequently, at Chic we believe in continuous professional development and myself and my assistants not only attend many courses and seminars but also actively encourage regular in-house training sessions from some of the Industry’s most respected groomers, trainers and Judges.
