Grooming great day

Grimsby Institute’s animal care team proved they were a cut above at the British Dog Grooming Championships where they were awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in their categories.

The team included staff members Emma Taylor, Connie Critcher and Amanda McCracken as well as current level three dog grooming learner 23-year-old Emma Bull, who travelled to Warwickshire Exhibition Centre to compete against industry experts.

Connie placed 2nd in the advanced class with Amanda placing 3rd and Emma Bull was placed 2nd in the hand stripping competition.

Topping their success however was Emma Taylor who placed first in both of her classes to ultimately compete for and win the title of British Dog Groomer of the Year 2015.

Ms Taylor said: “It is an almighty privilege and accomplishment for any groomer to win this title as it’s one of the things we all work towards. I am still in shock that I won and I have so many people to thank for helping me get to where I am today.”
