2005 Vikki decided to, following a part time job bathing dogs, to do a City & Guild course in dog grooming. After qualifying she set up VLP dog grooming, a home based groomer and was always wanting to get her own salon but at the time this was not really an option. 2009 She took a full time job as a salon manager at a Stevenage groomers, where she worked until leaving to open Pedigrees 'n' Pooches.
After starting out by helping Vikki with VLP at home, Trevor decided he would like to start grooming as a career, He began this in 2010 at a salon in London as trainee and his love of the career showed in his work and commitment and was soon promoted to stylist, then salon manager. During his time at this salon he gained the City & Guilds in dog grooming and earned a lot of respect from the customers and staff alike, as someone with the ability and confidence to handle difficult and aggressive dogs and who has a natural affinity with the dogs which other groomers and vets had experienced difficulties with.
The have both have extensive training and qualifications including the level 2 & 3 City & Guilds. CSP, canine first aid, microchip implanting, and animal psychology.
