Pedigrees 'n' Pooches are a dog grooming husband and wife from Hatfield, Hertfordshire, Trevor and Vikki Pearman. They have always been animal lovers having had, as a couple, dogs and cats for well over 20 years. Currently they have 4 dogs.

Apache, a black standard poodle dog, kc registered show dog and model for grooming competitions.
Avvie, a northern Inuit dog, a rescue who was born blind.
Harley, the miniature schnauzer, a real character and model for grooming competition. They are a handful at times but great fun and very loving, a crested gecko, 4 cats and a good selection of fish.


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.
