​About Bark and Sparkle...
Hello my name is Kate and welcome to Bark and Sparkle.  Having been surrounded by animals for all of my life, I have decided to use my passion for all things furry and open my very own Dog Grooming Business and here 'Bark and Sparkle' was born.
I have attended a variety of dog grooming training, including City and Guilds, as well as attending various dog grooming seminars and training events held throughout the year.  In 2016 I attended  a range of seminars including styling methods for the West Highland White Terrier, Poodles, Airedale Terrier, Bichon Frise, Cockapoo, Asian Fusion grooming and Lhasa Apso drop coat breeds. I also updated my Canine Emergency First Aid in August 2016.

In 2017 I attended several demonstrations and workshops including Colin Taylor's Masterclass, Ryan Lee's demonstration, Pammie Carmichael-Hogg's demonstration and workshop on grooming techniques for a varety of breeds and also Asian Fusion grooming.  I also hosted an intense Colin Taylor workshop at my very own salon to enable me to further develop my scissoring and styling skills.  I intend to continue my professional development further and hope to compete very soon.
I strongly believe that dog grooming should be made as stress free as possible, so if it takes 2 1/2hrs to groom a dog to maintain their confidence then that is fine by me.  They can have a break and play with the salon toys or relax on the Chaise Longue in our Boutique.  I am not under pressure to do your dog as quick as possible to enable me to quickly move on to my next client, for me it is all about the dog!
