About Bettsy’s Groom Room



british-dog-groomer-assoc-logoIt goes without saying I am an animal lover! Together me and my family have 6 dogs, 3 cats, 12 horses and 9 chickens and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I began my career in 2009 when I undertook a business management apprentaship through Selby college. I knew I always wanted to work for myself but all I knew was animals.


In 2011 I took my dogs to a local groomer who after chatting to, gave me an amazing opportunity to work for her as an apprentice dog groomer. Since I started I haven’t looked back and with my passion and love for dogs I finally found my dream job! I had my ups and downs throughout learning the skills as I soon found out that it wasn’t as easy as my professional tutor made it look… however, after 2 years of persevering, practising on my own dogs and friends dogs I began to produce some beautiful cuts and achieved my diploma in pet grooming and NVQ level 2 & 3 in business management. In my third year I started to advertise myself as a groomer and soon found my clientele building up through word of mouth and recommendations.
