Hello, I am Caitlin. I’m an apprentice dog groomer at The Pet Retreat, based in Knutsford.
I have a huge passion for animals and their welfare and have done since a young age. I’ve studied an animal care and management course within college and earned a Level 3 Diploma in Animal Management.
I have a variety of experience with animals as I completed work experience within my local vets and the RSPCA in Warrington.
Although I enjoyed the experience in both these industries, I thoroughly enjoy the dog grooming industry and I aim to become a fully qualified dog groomer.
I’ve been working at The Pet Retreat since the beginning of July; I work with an amazing, supportive team and I also love getting to know our regular clients, and of course their beautiful dogs!
I have recently competed at the British Dog Grooming Competition in October and I am proud to say that I placed 2nd in a large newcomer’s class competing against others with up to two years experience. I competed with a Miniature Schnauzer. I am looking forward to competing again in January.
At home; I have a Labrador Retriever called Jovi, a red Miniature Poodle called Jaxon and four cats. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my pets and family.
