One to One Grooming Parlour
I specialise in wool mix breeds; coats that require special care and attention and time.
Cockapoodledoo began its life to provide my dogs with an environment of calm whilst being groomed. It is true to say that the bustle of a busy grooming salon, and its many distractions, was unfamiliar territory to my dogs and their demeanour on leaving told its own story; they had lost their zing.
My dogs spend many a happy hour socialising in our glorious Lakes but this experience was different. Often a salon can be a terrifying place, after all being expected to stand diligently whilst being distracted by another dog is a big ask. Add to that noise and unfamiliar faces and it can be nothing to look forward to.
Their welfare being of my upmost concern meant I took matters into my own hands. During a year of tuition with the renowned. and hugely respected Margaret Lee I qualified with a City & Guilds NVQ to take care of them myself. It proved to be a year of fun, education (who knew there was so much to know) and surprises. I found myself lost in thought whilst I bonded with so many wonderful dogs. Dogs I will never forget. The process of grooming proved to be very therapeutic and deeply rewarding and (I have to say) often exhausting and that from a Pilates teacher of some 20 years practice!
Townfoot Farm, Cumrew is situated in a Designated Area of Outstanding Beauty in a secure courtyard setting. Any visitor can be assured that it is safe. I offer a tranquil non-stressful environment.
Your dog will never share my time.
Separation anxiety? You can relax – while you wait – in an adjoining snug with tea, magazines and television/radio should you wish. There is no need to go anywhere but you might be tempted to head out for a walk in our beautiful fell side; which adjoins Townfoot Farm or just sit and relax at Tommy’s bench and take in the view.
