Founder of the Paw Pad Dog Grooming AcademyAmy is the proud founder of The Paw Pad Dog Grooming Academy.
When Amy took a job at a local dog groomer, she instantly realised she had found her calling and has not looked back since. Amy decided to branch out independently and converted her garage into a dog grooming salon.
After perfecting her skills and establishing herself as a respected dog groomer, Amy decided it was time to pass on her expertise to others, and so The Paw Pad was launched in 2007.
