Meet the amazing team behind The Dog Parlours...
Born and raised in Leicestershire Deborah has now been able to turn yet another dream into reality by creating something wonderful, something unique and extra special within the world of Dog grooming.
The Dog Parlour was borne out of a need, an idea! Created out of the love for our dogs and our desire to create a really warm, welcoming and friendly environment where your trusted friend can relax…totally, whilst being pampered, bathed and styled to provide maximum comfort and for us to help them display their true beauty and reflect their status as “Leader of the Pack!’
Now 15 months into our wonderful adventure, I am thrilled and delighted with the support and the most fantastic feedback and so may five star reviews from our loyal customer base we have received…I am very fortunate to have such a dedicated, talented and supportive team of top quality grooming stylists working with me too and now due to sheer demand I am about to open my second salon where our very special and oh so creative work can continue……
“I have loved animals all my life especially dogs and horses so it felt so right to be working with them.
I completed a 2-year Animal Management course at Brooksby Melton college followed by a Dog Grooming course, passing both with Distinction.
I thoroughly enjoy grooming dogs and I love to see how happy it makes them as well as the owners.
I was overjoyed and very excited to have been given the opportunity of joining the Dog Parlour team and working with all those beautiful, wonderful canine customers……and now I’ve just celebrated my 1st anniversary of working for The Dog Parlour, I have a loyal and wonderful client base and too many fantastic doggie customers to mention. In addition I am now the proud owner of my very own horse, Sarkey which I love and care for with incredible passion.
When I joined The Dog Parlour, I remember being told that ‘Grooming is a passion, an art, a gift’…now one year on I can clearly see every single day through the eyes of every one of our customers that statement is so true and it’s a gift I love giving…every time I groom.
I always knew I had a huge passion for dogs, all sizes and breeds….I loved them all and simply knew I needed to find the right opportunity to work with them full time. Having always been around dogs whilst growing up and now being the proud and loving owner of no less than 3 of my own, 2 springers Rosie and Dexter and a Lhasa Apso called Roxy.
When, way back in 2014 I knew Rosie needed grooming, I did my research and booked her in and saw just how fabulous she looked after her pampering session, I knew instantly what a perfect job for me! To not only make dogs look fantastic but steeling hugs and kisses from all kinds of breeds along the way! Since that magical day I have never looked back.
My training was conducted through the very talented and thorough South Warwickshire College where I earned my diploma back in 2015: A hands on course with a variety of dogs to transform and make beautiful. Since qualifying and for the last 2 years I have worked part time across two locations in Atherstone and Nuneaton with lots of lovely clients and their owners, building a strong client base!
When I saw the opportunity to come on board with The Dog Parlour, an incredible and unique business full of talented individuals who simply love the dogs as much as I do I knew I had to take this opportunity. It is in a fabulous location and the girls there are amazing...
To say I’m thrilled and so excited to be joining The Dog Parlour team would be an understatement. I have previously trained as a hairdresser and nail technician. Over the last 9 years I have worked as a sales assistant alongside raising my daughter. My passion for dog grooming came from maintaining my own rough collie Leo. I decided to participate in a taster day dog grooming which I absolutely loved and knew I had found my dream job. I now plan to continue my training in September where I will complete my level 3 and build my career with the Dog Parlour to become a successful dog groomer.
Hello! My name is Ellie. I guess the best way to describe me is.. I’m that person you would find in the kitchen fussing the dog at a party...
For as long as I can recall, animals have been the main passion, focus and interest in my life. Now as an adult I own two horses, a dog, two rabbits and a hamster….quite a family and even though I keep saying “no more pets” I’m sure my brood will keep expanding. It is my totaI passion for animals that led me to study level 3 extended diploma in animal management at Brooksby Melton College and then continue on to HND.
My love for grooming began from a tender age, with my own extremely cute Border Terrier called Merlin. I was fortunate I guess in that grooming was something that just came naturally to me from the very start.. I have now worked for a significant period of time within the professional grooming industry and now know how and why to recognise every dog as an individual and to adapt my handling skills to suit every dogs needs and to make them feel as comfortable and at ease as possible.
I live by the motto “a day without fishing dog hair our of your cup of tea, is a day not lived”
I am so excited and overjoyed to have been chosen to join the team at The Dog Parlour and I can’t wait to meet lots of new canine friends and make them look (and feel) their best! See you soon
I cannot tell you just how delighted I am to be actually realising one of my dreams now by joining the incredible team and business that is The Dog Parlour!
For the past 18 years I have worked in an office environment alongside raising our daughter. Being a Mum has always been my priority however I now feel that the time is right for me to follow my own dreams. After leaving school I entered the world of hairdressing but very soon discovered it actually wasn’t for me. I have always wanted to work with animals in some way and my absolute favourite has to be dogs. I love them all and have always been around them from growing up to owning my own!
After struggling to find a groomer that would groom my Chihuahua the way I wanted him started my thinking and research as this was something that I wanted, in fact needed to do. I started to review available training and grooming courses and planned to go for it in 2018 and therefore my dream could actually start. However I came across an advertisement that seemed too good to be true and now I have been given this exciting opportunity in joining The Dog Parlour and its amazing team.
I have also been accepted by Brooksby Melton college to start my level 2 grooming course in February 2018. I’ve only been with the Dog Parlour a few weeks now and I’ve loved every minute of it. The girls do such an amazing job: pampering and making our furry friends look absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait start my journey in becoming a dog groomer and working with such a great team & all my new canine friends.
My Dream has truly started xx

We simply cannot tell you how thrilled we both were when Mummy and Daddy shared their idea and Dog Grooming concept with us. Once the Dog Parlour opened, we wanted our fur to grow all the quicker just so we could spend even more time in the Salon..
It is an absolute joy for us to be harnessed into our car-seats to spend a glorious few hours within The Dog Parlour, being pampered and spoiled with nothing but organic products and receiving the regal treatment from our good friends who style our hairs so beautifully…They give us continual and huge amounts of cuddles, kisses and praise I have to admit too…
We ask you where’s a canine guy and gal to go these days for that extra special treatment and such a cool, great look if it’s not to The Dog Parlour? We love it, our friends love it and we simply know you’ll love it too!
Lots of love and Licks
