I set up Top n Tails in January 1998 after completing my training at the London academy of grooming. Dogs have always been a huge part of my life. At present I own 2 shihtzus one of which I have recently entered the world of showing with! We've had a great start, qualifying and coming 5th at crufts last year in a huge class.
Nanette joined Top n Tails in 2006 after completing a dog grooming course at Merrist wood. She lives with three crazy Boxer dogs, the newest addition being fleur who is the pick of Nanette's first litter of home bred boxer puppies
Rachel also joined top n tails in 2006, she started with us bathing and prepping dogs. Rachel has received in house training and is now fully competent in clipping and styling all breeds of dog although her passion is hand stripping. Rachel has recently been away on maternity leave to have her first baby Jacob but has now returned back to work part time. Rachel loves Staffordshire bull terriers and has her own called Tara.
Anne Marie and Chester are our newest addition to the team.
You may recognise Anne Marie as she was a kennel assistant at the vets in Cranleigh before joining us at Top n Tails.
Her dog Chester also joins us at work as he suffers separation anxiety from Anne Marie and has a bad habit of destroying carpets!
Having previously worked at the vets, Anne Marie is very confident handling all breeds of dogs, she loves working with animals and her dream job is to become a dog groomer!
