Award-winning trainer for dog grooming courses in Staffordshire

Mich Dale started showing 25 years ago in 1990 and has a small successful kennel that has multiple champions worldwide with West Highland white terriers (WHWT), Kerry blue terriers and Scottish terriers. She started professional grooming about 15 years ago while running a successful small salon in Staffordshire. She was persuaded to compete at Premier Groom in 2008 – her first ever grooming competition, and went on to win BIS (Best in Show); something she repeated in 2010 in the elite class and on their 10th anniversary. After a few years out of competition, Mich took top honours again in 2014 at the Golden Groomer Competition at Liege, Belgium en-route to Split in Croatia where she went on to win the Terrier group and other group placings with her WHWTs. Mich has earned great respect from fellow groomers all over the world for her unique grooming style and faultless presentation. She has also judged Premier Groom in 2009 and The British Dog Grooming Championships in 2014.

At the 2015 Groomania competition, held in Kortrijk XPO Belgium, she gave a 3-hour seminar on how to groom a WHWT to breed-and-show standards. After the seminar Mich also then ran a 3-hour workshop for one-to-one tuition and hands on with WHWT and Scotties. At this workshop Mich personally guided the participants with their own dogs and taught them some of her fantastic techniques and styling vision that has brought her great success all over the world, including Japan, Norway, America, Portugal, New Zealand, South Africa, Hungary and Russia.

Mich Dale is a highly qualified and is keen to teach as much information and skill at a very high standard giving you a high sense of quality and pride in your work which in turn reflects onto the very happy dog owners that collected there dogs and rebooked so as not to miss an appointment.
