My Credentials‚Äč

For your peace of mind and interest, I have listed here my qualifications to care for and groom your pet. Any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask me. Your pets welfare is my primary concern at all times.

I am fully trained and experienced in all aspects of dog grooming, from skin care to teddy trims, from hand stripping to skirt and feathers and everything in between. Nails/ear/teeth and eye area care are provided inclusively with your groom as required.

I'm fully qualified scoring a triple distinction in City & Guilds Level 3 Professional Dog Grooming, I trained at the highly acclaimed Groom School at Canine Health & Hydro. This means:-

I've spent in excess of 400 hours training with hands-on grooming as well as theory studying.
I've been 'live' assessed on at least 6 different grooming techniques and styles. 
I have sat and passed 3 exams covering everything from grooming standards to kennel club standards to health, disease, parasite control and current legislation. 
I've created and followed risk assessments for my workplace, created formal recording systems for health and welfare for all pets in my care following and meeting HSE standards and Vet approved legislation including 'The 5 Animal Freedoms'.

In addition to this, I have full Pet Professional Liability Insurance with Pet Plan Sanctuary which covers my transportation of your pet as well as their time at my Grooming Salon.

I'm a qualified Pet First Aider for your peace of mind (& mine) should any need arise to help your dog during your stay with me. I have also trained (& experienced) dealing with various health conditions from skin problems to parasite control to joint problem indicators and can point out any concerns that I observe during your dogs groom. Please note I am not a vet and cannot diagnose, treat or prescribe for your pet but I can highlight any concerns and provide preventative care.

 About me

 My name is Leighann and I'm the proud owner and groomer of  Foxy Dogs
 I work from Barnoldswick through to Colne and surrounding areas.  My Studio is purpose built with the best equipment and a calming  environment for me to groom and pamper your dogs.
 My business ethos is about treating each dog as the individual  that they are and working with owners to provide a calm and  loving grooming service where your dog(s) will feel as well as look  good. I deliver this by providing one to one bonding and  attention, a slower pace and lots of communication with you  about your, and particularly your dogs, needs. I also absolutely  love what I do & I think the dogs know that!
 My free collection and drop off service applies within a 5 mile  radius of Barnoldswick & Colne with a small charge further afield.
 Please message, email or call for further details, feel free to  browse through my Facebook page where you'll find services,  reviews, credentials and lots of photos of my grooms and  makeovers.
 I look forward to welcoming your dog(s) here soon!




Bree went for her first pamper today and looked beautiful! She smelt amazing too!! Would certainly recommend Foxy Dogs. You can tell the owner Leighann genuinely loves dogs and Bree loved her too!
