About the owners

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved dogs. I loved Lassie and kept asking Mum and Dad for a "Lassie dog" and when I was about 6 years old my dream came true and I had my own Rough Collie called Duke. All of my family have owned dogs so I have been around lots of different breeds including Dachshunds, Yorkshire Terriers, Poodles, Border Collies, German Shepherds, Setters and Labradors. I currently own a Cockapoo called Benson and a Cavashon called Bonnie (and wow they bring so much love into our home!).

I started Mad About Dog in July 2017 working from a salon at home, but in October 2020 moved into new premises at Marlpit Farm in Boughton Monchelsea. This allowed for more space to work alongside other groomers in order to gain more experience, work with large dogs and of course, have some company. Thank you Lauren, I am so much happier now :-) 

Our brand new salon was designed and built by my husband Tony and I to offer a professional dog grooming experience for both you and your dog. The refurbishment work was completed during the Lockdown days, so it was a great way to keep my family busy and have something positive to focus on.

A BIG thank you to my family for all your help; Tony's Dad, my Dad, my Mum and our 3 children Tom, Charlotte and Sam.

On the farm we are located just past Marlpit Farm Shop, parking is easy and the salon is open plan so you can see us with working with the dogs. We use top of the range equipment and one of the best shampoos on the market - Colin Taylor (Pooch Perfect judge). Soon there will be a retail area and we are on hand to offer advice on grooming, diet, health and behaviour.

I am fully qualified to City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma and trained with a national and international award winning dog groomer. I have attended dog psychology courses, regularly attend dog grooming seminars and daily read, listen to podcasts and watch videos about dogs, grooming and behaviour.

If you are looking for a new dog groomer or have a new dog or puppy please give us a try.
