Welcome to Poochie Parlour, in here you will find information on the us, our qualifications, the shop and our own pets.
Maxine and Chelsey both hold advanced international diplomas in dog grooming, as well as animal first aid, health and safety, and running a business. Chelsey holds an additional National Diploma in animal management.
We are a family run business with mother and daughter being the pet groomers. We pride ourselves in making sure that your beloved pet receives no less that the best possible care and attention during their time with us. Being animal lovers makes our job easy and enjoyable so you can be sure that the atmosphere will make it a pleasurable experience for the animals and owners alike.
We are experienced in all areas of grooming including the specialist area of hand stripping. We pride ourselves in specialising in being able to give helpful advice in most of your animal needs.
Maxine and Chelsey opened Poochie Parlour on the 21st July 2008 to the public, after spending over a year planning, preparing and finishing their ideas and shop design. Poochie Parlour boasts a unique open plan grooming area, so customers can view their pet being groomed and their pet can see outside, for a more relaxing visit.
Poochie Parlour is also a Pet Shop too, we stock many items such as leads, collars, harnesses, toys, treats, shampoo, pet food and much more.
Our spare time is taken up with our own pets, let us introduce them to you
We have 5 dogs currently, we have :
Scampy - The Jack Russell cross Beagle, who we rescued from Block Fen
Lily - The Yorkshire Terrier, who we rescued from The Yorkie and toy breed rescue
Jodie - The King Charles Cavalier Spaniel - Her owner could no longer look after her and Jodie was getting old and needed a home for the rest of her life, we were happy to take her on.
Star - The Staffordshire Bull Terrier - An often misunderstood bread, we found she needed a home or was going to get put to sleep, after seeing her and hearing her story, how could we leave her, she fitted in perfectly with us.
Rudy - The Miniature Schnauzer - We bought him as a puppy, and Chelsey uses him for competition grooming and showing, dotn't worry, he's not just a show dog and loves play fighting with our other dogs.
You can see more photographs of our pets in the Poochie Parlour Gallery!
