Teenage student is best newcomer at British Dog Grooming Championships

Chichester College learner Beeche Taylor was named newcomer of the year at the British Dog Grooming Championships.

The 19-year-old level three dog styling student took the title after impressing judges at the event last month in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, with a ‘teddy bear’ style she created for her Shih Tzu Lola.

It involved a short cut all over except for the dog’s head where the fur was left longer and fluffy.

Grooming lecturer Sue Nas Said: “What a terrific achievement.

“Beeche took along her little Shih Tzu dog which she clipped and scissored into a teddy bear trim in two hours.

“This young lady was a very shy and quiet girl when she started at college and now the world is her oyster.”
