Sophie Fury Icmg–International Certified Master Groomer
As well as being a fully qualified City & Guilds Level 3 accredited groomer Sophie also holds the title Icmg – International Certified Master Groomer 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.
Best all round groomer and Reserve best in show at Groomland 2016.
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.
I used to take Archie to another groomer but he never looked as good as the dogs I would see in the park. After asking I visited Dapper Dog in Cannock. This was Archie’s first visit here and it won’t be his last. He has never looked better. Thank you to Sophie.
