I recently had the pleasure to spend a morning with Beth and her employees Chelsea and Abbie at Posh Dogs Grooming in Sileby, just outside Loughborough.
This photoshoot was a particularly exciting opportunity for me: Like most people, I had never actually seen what goes on behind the scenes of the dog groomer’s. Most dog owners drop their pooches in the front room and leave them in Beth’s capable hand from there. My goal for the day was to show what happens afterwards.
Beth has a fantastic set up at her little salon. It is only made up of two rooms, but it actually feels much bigger. With three groomers, one photographer and three dogs between them we managed to share the space just fine.
The first clients of the day were Bella, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Sam a Springer Spaniel. I could tell immediately that these two were grooming veterans. Bella was a true lady. She really seemed to enjoy the whole procedure and the faff, looking properly regal doing so. Sam was not really fussed about anything and certainly enjoyed his towel rub from Abbie.
Cavapoo Benji who was dropped off later that morning is an adorable golden ball of fluff. I could tell he was initially a little nervous about his pamper session, but he settled it soon. Despite it being such a busy morning Beth, Abbie and Chelsea always took their time with each dog and make sure each dog gets plenty of cuddles of reassurance.
I absolutely loved my morning at the groomer’s, and I’m excited to be able to tell you that Beth and I have also decided to bring a special offer to you – perhaps in form of a little competition or raffle as well. We are still working out the details but if you want to be kept up to date on this, feel free to follow our Facebook pages (Anni’s Looking Glass & Posh Dogs) or sign up for my mailing list – the latter gets you a £5 voucher as well!
