I grew up in Newark with a love for dogs which led me to establish Kuts for Mutts in 1998 after successfully completing a course at Caythorpe College. I continue to attend grooming seminars and competitions to keep my knowledge up-to-date. For several years I have also competed with my Bedlington Terriers at open and championship dog shows. I am proud to have made up two Champions, one winning best male Bedlington at Crufts 2014. I am a member of all three UK breed clubs and serve on the committee for the National Bedlington Terrier Club. I have judged for the Bedlington Terrier since 2010 and was approved by the Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates for the breed in 2021 and next in 2024.
