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 am the proud servant of 4 shihtzus, 2 of which are home bred. In my spare time i enjoy showing them all over the country. I surpassed my hopes and dreams with Dennis, getting his first cc at Crufts in 2017 and later that year making him up to be a champion. He is the proud father of my pups. We have also competed in agility together.
My daughter Roxy also enjoys junior handling and taking part in grooming competitions, at 6 she was the youngest person ever to qualify for the the YKC groomer of the year at crufts
Nanette joined Top n Tails in 2006 after completing a dog grooming course at Merrist wood. Nanettte has Boxer dogs, Ella and Fleur, who she bred herself
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 2 children, Jacob and Isabelle. Rachel has a Shar pei called AJ
Anne Marie and Chester are our newest addition to the team, joiniing us in 2016.
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! Chester recently acquired a girlfriend in the form of Bow, a mischeivous Jack Russell
Anne Marie enjoys working with animals and her dream job was to become a dog groomer!
