Melissa (Full City and Guilds L3 Diploma Qualified)

An ex-primary school teacher, Melissa brings her kind, caring personality to her craft.  Trained in London by J. Lalou, L.C.G.I, Melissa holds a Level 3 City and Guilds Dog Grooming Diploma, alongside qualifications in Canine First Aid and Canine Behaviour and Psychology so that you can be sure that your dog is in the best possible hands.  Regular CPD is paramount for Melissa and she can often be found practising new techniques learned at seminars and workshops, undertaking 1-2-1 training days with industry leaders and entering competitions.

Each dog will receive Melissa’s dedicated 1-2-1 attention, the best styling and finishing techniques and a lot of love and natural treats.  Clients are offered experienced advice and information on any part of being a pet parent, and she is passionate about delivering the best possible service to every pet and family that she meets.

Melissa is a member of the Pet Industry Federation and The Groomer’s Spotlight and is fully insured; she believes in upholding the highest quality and care in her grooming practise, something she promotes across the industry.

Precious Paws understand the need for simplicity in today’s hectic lifestyles. We bring our grooming, spa and dental treatments to your front door to work around you. All we ask is that we can connect to your electricity supply and are able to park a long wheel base van comfortably.

Your dog’s comfort and well-being is the most important thing to us at Precious Paws. We are fully qualified and insured and cover Chertsey, Ottershaw, Virginia Water, Egham, Weybridge, New-Haw, Addlestone, Thorpe and surrounding areas.  A call out fee of £5 is added to all grooming charges from Dec 2021.
