Shampoochies was started by Gemma in 2014, inspired by her Giant Schnauzer, Euston. What started as one woman in her van, quickly grew to a husband and wife team, and in the last year has added more team members and a busy, state of the art grooming salon in a fantastic location. Our skilled groomers use the latest equipment, technologies and skills to ensure your pets look great and feel great af

ter their treatments. We offer grooming for all breeds large or small, and services include nail clipping, ear cleaning, body styling, deshedding and much more. Please note: the mobile service is currently at capacity, but our salon has plenty of availability for new customers. We look forward to seeing you and your pooches soon!

We had an amazing time on our dog walk on Sunday!

It was a beautiful morning - all the dogs got on amazingly and we really did have the best time seeing the dogs playing and getting chance to really have a chat to you rather than it be a 5mins chat at handovers in the salon!

We are even considering this as a regular thing 🤔🤔

Comment below if you’d be up for this with us!

New Name Announcement……

As of this moment we are now The Bearded Pooch!

We had a party last night with our family & friends, a dog walk today in celebration of 10 years in business! We can now finally reveal our new name! We have included our boy Euston which is the whole reason the business started. Huge thanks to for not only creating the logo but all the signage and business cards! You are so talented and the logo is just perfect! It captures Euston so perfectly along with the colours of his paw print on Gemma’s arm!

Our new website will be live this week and the new signage will be up very soon! 10 years in business is a huge achievement but this would not have been possible without the support of each and every one of you! THANK YOU!

We will be sharing videos and pictures of the party and dog walk shortly!

***New Team Member Alert***

We are over the moon to announce we have increased our team again and we welcome Jess to the team! Jess trained with us a year ago and approached us recently to ask if we had any availability for her to join us! Jess was an incredible student and we have no doubt she will make an incredible addition to the team! A little intro from Jess:

“Hi everyone my name is Jess and this is my beautiful dog Molly! I am so excited to be joining the team. It’s such a privilege to be returning to where I originally trained and qualified. I can’t wait to meet and pamper your much loved pooches! I am looking forward to meet you all very soon 🐶🐾”

She will be starting at the end of May at Enderby - however she is joining us next week for our celebratory dog walk at Fosse Meadows - please give her a warm welcome when you see her ❤️🐾

What do Dog Groomers love most about their jobs apart from working with dogs and not humans? 🤪

The freedom to continually learn and take on new skills throughout your whole career! This is a picture of Baxter - the same dog but 10 years apart!!

Gemma groomed Baxter in April 2014 with only Level 2 training, working alone in a van and had very limited access to social media due it not being “the thing” social media is now! Gemma was so proud of this groom in April 2014! Beaming!

Baxter is now showing signs of age but that doesn’t deter from how much more improved his trim is! This is 10 years of hard work and money - attending seminars up and down the country, studying for further education, researching, competing and chatting with other groomers continually. It’s so easy to forget how far you have come if you don’t compare or occasionally look back to what you could or couldn’t do at the start of your career. Reflection is key to growth!

Whether you are just starting out or already a well established business - never ever stop learning and always look for ways to improve but also never be ashamed of where you started.

Grooming with no “official” qualification?? We can help!

If you have 1 years experience in the grooming industry you could qualify for our fast track course! We are currently offering this at £1500 instead of £2000. The studying is done remotely at your own pace, you will have 3 days training included with Gemma and the Canine First Aid course as well!

We can also offer this in monthly instalments spread across 20months - making it less than £80 a month to receive that “qualified” status.

Get in touch now and message us to get registered!

Did you know we offer teeth cleaning?

We have new signs up advertising this - thanks to (who by the way has also done a fantastic job with our new logo and signage!)

We offer initial sessions to remove the build up and then maintenance sessions with the grooms to prevent this building back up again. Speak to us about a consultation and how we can help your pooch! 🦷 🪥

3rd and final Exciting Announcement…

We are opening a second salon at Palmers Ullesthorpe! We are beyond excited to be given the opportunity to do this! This is another actual dream come true and we are still in a bit of shock ourselves! We plan to open June/July 2024 - an opening date will be confirmed nearer the time and we hope to have a “proper” opening this time.

Alex will be running this salon with the possibility of some of the Enderby people making the odd appearance over there as well. This does mean however that our mobile service will be ending in June.

Mobile grooming is what started the Shampoochies journey however this is the right time to move on and hopefully this move will open up more doors over the next couple of years…

Alex has tried to tell as many customers as possible face to face with plenty of time to plan and he continues to have these conversations with you all individually.

Please join us in sharing our excitement for what this year holds with rebranding, more courses and now a new site!

Thanks,

Team Shampoochies

2nd Exciting Announcement…

We now offer payment plans on all our iPET Courses! This is something we have been asked about many of times and if you don’t ask you don’t get! Well now you get!

You can now spread the cost of your course over the time you are training for!

We have an offer on our fast track Diploma course at the minute - £1500 instead of £2000! This course is aimed at groomers already in the grooming world but don’t have the “official” accreditation - why not save £500 and make the most of spreading the cost over your training time and earn yourself a qualification?

Message us to find out more info!

1st Exciting Announcement….

We are REBRANDING!

Whilst you may be sitting there and asking why? We like the name? We like the logo? Our biggest regret when we started the business that Euston was not included in the name or the logo - even though his painting is hung up in the salon - we have always felt his presence should be more - the business started because of him! 🖤

So with this in mind it has been something we’ve wanted to do for a while and as it’s our 10 year mark this year the time feels right to update, rebrand and refresh! This is being worked on as we speak and we will be looking to do a big reveal in the next couple months!

Keep a look out for the updates…

**40% off full price groom offer!**

We are looking for dog models for our student - any breed! Dogs must be ok being groomed and be with us a little longer than a “normal” groom. They receive lots of attention, breaks and get a groom to a high standard but with the added 40% off!

As the weather is so rubbish at the minute - why not take the opportunity to get 40% off and get them in for a wash and foot/face tidy? We need full grooms including styling as well as de-sheds and puppy grooms - training is on a tues/weds/thurs - message us to get booked in! We have spaces next week!

We are taking the opportunity with this post to showcase how hard our students are working at the minute!

We currently have 5 students working their way through the Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming & Salon Management. They are on different days ranging from day 4 through to day 13 but they are all very passionate and currently either having a complete career change or adding to their already excising pet business! So proud of them all!

Whether you are interested in starting one of our courses and becoming a dog groomer or an existing groomer are wanting that “qualified” status then get in touch! Our training page is and all the details of our courses are also on the Shampoochies website.

Our Story

We are a husband and wife team - Gemma and Alex! We have both lived in Leicester all our life and up until 2014 we both worked in an office doing a 9am - 5pm shift. However, Gemma was made redundant and whilst this is generally taken as bad news, Gemma took this as an opportunity to start something new and something that she enjoys. Dog grooming has been something that Gemma has been interested in since she bought home Euston at 8 weeks old (he's the handsome man on the home page) - he is a Giant Schnauzer. Gemma has groomed him since he was a young puppy and he is who we have to thank for getting us both into grooming professionally. Dogs are amazing animals and they never fail to make you laugh. You cannot beat the love and happiness that they give you that moment you walk in the house after being away from them.

After being made redundant Gemma decided to gain a professional qualification in dog grooming. She gained her City & Guilds Level 2 for Dog Grooming Assistants qualification in April 2014. Although the City & Guilds qualification is not a requirement to move into a dog grooming career, she felt that she could not go into this industry until she had gained a full understanding in regards to the care and grooming requirements of some many different and amazing breeds of dogs. After only 18 months into starting the business Gemma was full and had to close her books to any new customers. At this point Gemma decided to train Alex in the hope that we could get Alex to the standard of a fully trained dog groomer to be able re-open the books to new customers. Alex succeeded and took delivery of his mobile grooming van in March 2018.

He got so busy that he took the decision to also leave his 9am - 5pm job in May 2019 and has been working as a full time dog groomer ever since and never ever looked back! We are both extremely passionate about dogs and the joy that they bring to their families. We find an amazing amount of satisfaction in beautifying these amazing animals.

Ok, that is a very short snapshot of us - we hope to meet you very soon!!
