Grooming and Styling
Chief Biscuit Tester
Amikaya is a family run business we first started in 2008, I Have always had a huge passion for animals and have always adored dogs. I ran walkies dogs rescue for many years so worked with so many breeds and coat types. My husband Paul and I ran the rescue together he is dog mad too and now shares my love of grooming and helps run Amikaya. Many of the rescue cases came in dreadfully matted and I soon realized that grooming them not only improved their condition but the dogs enjoyed it too. There is nothing like turning a matted dejected rescue dog into a beautiful loved happy dog. I also worked as a behaviourist too but after doing a course at Pencoed college in 2008 where I completed level two and level three in dog grooming my passion for dog grooming really started to grow. After the course I wanted to learn more Dog grooming is my passion I go to as many seminars as I can I believe in never stopping learning and have recently completed my city and guilds level three intro and am working on my diploma at present. I love Asian fusion styles as well as breed standard but what I love more than anything is making my customers dogs happy grooming is not only an art form but it should be an enjoyable experience for the dog too.
I have shown Shih Tzus in the past and am owned by a Shih Tzu who is my whole world called Sheridan. We also have a Poodle and collies too and a few Walkies dogs lifers whom we just adore.
