Dog Grooming Salon & Training Centre
Handler / Specialist in Terriers
I have been working in the dog-grooming sector since I was 17 years old. I have always been active in the industry as well as annually renewing my training through different conferences and seminars.
I formed part of committee of the U.P.C.F.E. (The Association of Canine and Feline Groomers of Spain) where I lead workshops and seminars. I periodically publish articles in the association’s magazine as well as various magazines within the sector.
In 2009/20010 I was training, specializing and working with the A.K.C. (American Kennel Club) and successfully competing in different weekly dog shows.
From 2006 to 2008 I managed the grooming salons for the Vet’s al Vallès group, and in the middle of this process I became the Technical Director for the company Vetlook where I coordinated the grooming salons in 7 veterinary clinics, collaborated with the Human Resources Department in their selection processes and I conducted training sessions for their grooming personnel. Additionally, I have worked in other veterinary clinics as manager of groomers and performed various tasks in reception, sales and customer services.
I have participated in international championships in both Spain and France receiving the gold medal in the West Highland Terrier category and the best in Hand Stripping. I competed in France in the Champions’ class. On a team level, I competed in the world of Dog Shows as an assistant for the Greenfield Kennel in Pennsylvania where we won in numerous group categories and Best-in-show’s categories with some of our breeds rated as No. 1 in the United States. Also I was in Belgium as assistant to Carrinne Lew, in seminars poodle and scissor cutting for Transgroom and Aesculap.
