Meet Our Founder

Julie Lalou

Julie Lalou, Award-winning Master Groomer

I am a true dog lover and I have five dogs which include a two Standard Poodles, a Miniature Poodle, a Fox Terrier and a Welsh terrier.

I have been grooming since 2000 and teaching grooming since 2005. I am a strong believer in qualifications and as a result I have a BA in International Business, City and Guilds 7750/03 in Dog grooming, The Certificate in Competence in Cat Grooming and a City and Guilds 7303/03 in teaching. I have obtained The Higher Diploma in Grooming and I am a member of the Guild of Master Dog Groomers. I have also been awarded a L.C.G.I in Dog Grooming. I am the owner of Dogs Delight, a successful grooming salon and City and Guilds Grooming Training Center in London.

I have a keen interest in improving the grooming industry and furthering my grooming skills in terms of qualifications and competing. I have worked incredibly hard competing in the UK and abroad to gain enough wins to make it onto The Groom Team England for handstripping. This is a huge achievement as the team only has 4 members and one of which i am very proud. In 2019 I will take part in the Word Grooming Championships

Finally in 2015, alongside Denise Westbrook (Dee4dogs), I set up an annual non profit grooming event which includes seminars, shopping and a competition with the intention of helping both new and experienced groomers to socialise and further their skills.
