A third of Welsh families own a dog and a growing number of owners now take their pooches to be pampered at a dog grooming salon. There are three thousand grooming businesses in the UK, but it’s an unregulated industry. Salons are not inspected and groomers aren’t required to have any qualifications.
The Cutz for Mutz salon in Llanelli calls itself ‘the most successful dog grooming academy in the UK’ and charges students up to £3600 to train there. Last year, owner Mandy Miller won an award for new business of the year.
