Welcome to K9 Clip & Shine
Dog Grooming in Northampton

And thank you for taking the time to visit.

My name is Kim and I am the owner and manageress of K9 Clip and Shine.

I will now tell you a little bit more about myself and what we do at the salon.

I have had a profound love for dogs ever since childhood, and we have always had one as a pet for as long as I can remember. So I know what a central and loving part of any family they play and how important it is as a responsible pet owner to ensure that your dog is well maintained and looked after.

For the last 15 years I have been a member and dog handler of the Duston German Shepherd Dog Training Club and I am a former member of the ‘Pacesetters’ Dog Display team that travel up and down the county to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Being a member of the DGSDTC brought me into contact with many different dog owners and I was often asked if I would look after peoples pet dogs while they were away on holiday. As a direct result of this, I was offered the opportunity to train and work as a dog groomer in a salon by someone that was impressed with the natural and relaxed way I had with animals.

I have been a professional dog groomer now for the last 14 years and love it just as much now as when I first started.

I have found that taking the time to get to know a dog and recognise how well it responds to certain situations is very important in getting good results from both handling and grooming.

And my experience in dog training has taught me that you get the best from your pet with encouragement, patience and reassurance.

These factors have always been central to the way in which I groom. Having the time to let the dog relax and take a break if needed, and letting the dog enjoy the experience of being groomed and not become stressed often allow you to give a far superior finish.

We groom fully in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act 2006, and your pets entire time with us at the salon is covered by CCTV for total peace of mind and pet welfare transparency.

My proven work ethic and experience with dogs allows me to cater for all breeds and sizes, with the facilities and experience needed to support and cater for both elderly dogs and those with behavioural problems with equal success.

Customer satisfaction and the well being of the dogs in my care are my main priority.

To achieve this I believe that consultation is the key to understanding the needs of the owner and the dog to enable me to deliver the best finish possible.

If you would like to know more about our dog grooming services, book a consultation or have any general questions about how to groom your pet please don’t hesitate to give me a call, I am always more than happy to offer any impartial advice or answer any questions you may have regarding grooming your pet.



Once again thank you for taking the time to visit my website.
