Kayla is a bubbly, loving individual who takes pride in every dog she grooms. She studied Animal Management, Behaviour and Welfare at Berkshire College of Agriculture achieving distinctions across the board and then went into studying dog grooming. She has been grooming in a busy salon since 2011 and now offers a service where every dog receives a grooming experience that is the best one they have ever had. She is a fully qualified groomer and deals with numerous breeds of show dogs. She has chosen to further her grooming knowledge by working towards her ICMG qualification, which is an additional qualification to become an International Master Groomer. In 2021 Kayla was thrilled to appear on BBCs Pooch Perfect competition
to find the best professional dog groomer in the UK. In her spare time Kayla enjoys training & grooming her 3 poodles, walking, and competing in grooming competitions and shows.
Kayla says "I have worked with dogs and cats since I left college and love learning about handling, training and behaviour. I knew as a child that I wanted to work with animals and when I started grooming I realised it was definitely the job for me, which is ironic as I was actually named after Michaela Strachan, a well-known animal TV presenter."
Beanie is Kayla's sister and they are very close, they do everything together following their dreams - they came up with the salon name together as well as doing all the planning. Beanie has always shared Kayla's love for dogs and the salon which is why she was the perfect person to have as a part of the team. She has worked here since we opened in Oct 2014 and has a Level 3 Diploma in dog grooming. Her talent and bubbly personality does not go unnoticed in the salon, as all the dogs love going to her for after-groom cuddles. Beanie enjoys training dogs and learning new styles and trims that come into fashion, as well as introducing her daughter into the "doggy world". Beanie owns and competes with her Bichon. In her spare time Beanie enjoys spending time with her gorgeous two children and fund raising for her late daughter Skyla.
