About Flawless Paws Mobile Grooming

I have always had a passion for animals since a very young age and have always had a dream of having my own business. After completing a business course with the Princes Trust I, Nicola, opened Flawless Paws in 2013.

I developed a good knowledge of animals through studying Animal Management at Oaklands College and gained further experience through working at local boarding kennels and RSPCA rehoming centre. This taught me about animal behaviour and different ways to handle stressed and nervous dogs. I still help out at the centre by grooming dogs that need a new haircut, or just a freshen up to make them feel more comfortable and relaxed.

After leaving the RSPCA I worked in a commercial grooming salon. This gave me the drive to fully train to become a dog grooming stylist. I trained with Colin Taylor, an award winning groomer with over 20 years' experience. He has won several international awards and various grooming competitions. Colin travels around giving seminars, as well as judging grooming competitions.

Since my initial training, I have completed my City and Guilds Level 3 in Introductory to Dog Grooming with the highest grades. I also attend regular seminars to continue developing my grooming, handling and behaviour.

In April 2016, I entered the Van competition at Mastergroom. I was pleasantly surprised to win Van of the Year, Diy Converted! Very proud of how my van has turned out after putting so much time, effort and money into designing, planning and converting the van.

April 2019 and the brand new grooming van has arrived! This new van not only has a new table/bath combo, but is also fully insulated, has a state of the art heating system and lots of natural air flow for those hot days too. Take a look on the grooming page for photos.
