helping your dog overcome their fear of grooming

My name is Bren, I am a Fear Free certified dog groomer, trainer and puppy class instructor based in Northumberland. I'm here to help make your dog's life as stress-free as possible when it comes to grooming.

I use my skills as a groomer and knowledge as a trainer to help dogs learn to see grooming as "no big deal" by going at their pace, teaching them consent cues and desensitising them to the sights, sounds and smells of a salon. 

My Gradual Grooming / Nervous Nails courses will help your dog overcome their grooming fears by having short, frequent appointments and using behavioural techniques to change their emotional response to the experience. 

Whilst I specialise in fearful dogs, my salon is open to all breeds and any temperaments. So whether it is your dog's very first grooming experience or they have developed a fear, I can help!

"I’ve used Brenna since getting my puppy last year and I can’t recommend her enough. My dog has developed a fear of getting her face groomed and Brenna has gone above and beyond to accommodate us. Brilliant service. Thank you!"

"Brenna has such a calming, professional attitude,Which puts me to ease.Piper hates having her legs touched but with regular grooms she is improving. And hopefully when things can go back to normal we can build her confidence up more."
