Sophie Fury multi-award winning dog groomer
As well as being a fully qualified City & Guilds Level 3 accredited groomer Sophie is also an International Professional Groomers Inc (IPGI) Certified Salon Professional with many years of practical experience and a real zest for continual study and involvement within the grooming industry allowing her to stay right up to date with the latest industry trends, equipment and techniques.
Sophie was recognised for her exceptional grooming standards at Master Groom 2015 where she came first in the Handstripped Intermediate class and went on to be awarded the ultimate accolade of Best in Show.
Originally from Slovakia, Sophie has always loved dogs and has developed her passion for grooming into a highly respected business. Sophie started professional dog grooming at Dapper Dog which was established in 2004. It all started with Sophie’s first Airedale Terrier who was a real champion at all the dog shows, training clubs and grooming events. The quality of Sophie’s work and natural flair for grooming soon got friends and family asking Sophie to groom their own dog’s which in hindsight has provided invaluable practical experience grooming many different breeds and coat types.
Sophie is an active member of many trade organisations, including the British Dog Groomers Association, Pet Industry Federation, IPG – International Professional Groomers, English Groomers Group as well as local Poodle and Airedale Terrier clubs and continues to show her dogs, Gina – a white standard Poodle and Dora – an Airedale Terrier, at national and international shows and has won numerous awards and is a highly respected participant at all events.
Sophie has now built up a regular and very loyal customer family, providing a positive and rewarding experience for both pet and owner. Sophie happily takes time to share her knowledge, tips and advice to help her clients get the most satisfaction and take the best care of their pets appearance.
Sophie groomed our dog Harvey this week and I can’t thank her enough. Harvey looks amazing, he is normally quite nervous but Sophie was very patient with him and he really took to her. He has never looked so good or been so relaxed after a groom. Would definitely recommend and have already rebooked!
