About Funky Dogs in Guildford
We would like to introduce ourselves by giving you a little background into how we began our journey in the Pet grooming industry.
I (Martin) started dog grooming back in 1996 at the tender age of 16. I worked for and was very lucky to have been taught by Gillian East. Gillian is a world-renowned grooming teacher and City & Guilds examiner. She was an inspiration to me in my time working for her. I spent roughly 4 years working for Gill, then went on to work for various other grooming companies. In 2003 I met Sarah who started working at a grooming salon I had been working at. We hit it off straight away with our passion for animals and have been together ever since.
In 2004 I (Martin) became the lecturer of dog grooming courses at Merrist Wood College. I spent 3 years there and met some amazing people from all different walks of life, all of which wanted to turn their career path into working in the dog grooming industry. Many of my students went on to running very successful grooming parlours which are still going strong today.
In 2007 myself and my wife decided that we wanted to work for ourselves. This is when we came across Funky Dogs which was a very well-established business that had been running for a few years, so we decided to take the plunge and go at it ourselves and took over as the proud owners of Funky Dogs which we now like to call Funky Dogs Spa & Grooming Centre.
What we feel very passionate about is knowing that we do everything ourselves and that we do not have any other pet stylists doing the cutting and bathing etc, giving you as the pet parent piece of mind that you are leaving your beloved pet with us and only us.
