Amanda, the owner

Amanda owned a successful dog grooming business in Hampton called Hampton Hounds and decided to sell this in December 2015 as she wanted to work from home and to concentrate more on the personal one to one side that she thinks a busy salon lacks.


Some of the things Amanda has achieved:

  • I qualified with a Distinction for Long Legged terriers i.e Lakeland terrier
  • A Merit for Short legged terriers i.e west highland terrier
  • A Merit for my handstrip on a border terrier
  • A Merit for with a cocker spaniel



Michaela has rejoined Dolly Dog Grooming as manager and senior groomer.

Michaela began her career in dog grooming with Amanda in 2013 as an apprentice when she was just 16 years old and worked closely alongside her for 6 years, Michaela then went on as manager and head groomer at Love my Human in Chelsea.

"I'm Michaela,
I have two dogs of my own Billy and Nala. I always wanted to work with dogs for as long as I can remember.
Being trained by Amanda means I specialise in Schnauzers, Terriers, hand stripping and all Poodle crosses. I am confident to groom all dogs to breed standard at a high level.
Within my gap away from Dolly Dog Grooming I have extended my skills to hand scissoring.
I look forward to meeting you and your dogs."


Timea has been working for Amanda now for two years and is a senior groomer, she has 10 years grooming experience. She has worked in several London grooming salons, Purple Bone in notting hill, D.O.G in Wandsworth and The Handsome Hound to name a few.

"I am Timea,
I own a Yorkshire Terrier called Yoda who is 10 years old. I gained my grooming certificate in Hungry in 2013 and then moved to the UK. I then went on to gain my grooming diploma with City & Guilds. I also hold occupational health and safety certificate, and I’m an animal first aider.
I am confident in grooming all dog breeds and I specialise in cavapoo’s, cockapoo’s, all poodle mixes, spaniels and of course Yorkshire Terriers."


Ellie started her grooming apprenticeship and animal management with Amanda in 2019 and has been a great help and support to her and all the team.

"I have grown up with dogs all of my life and have always wanted to work with animals. When I had the opportunity to join Dolly Dog Grooming as an apprentice I jumped at the opportunity. I can groom all poodle crosses, cockapoos, cavapoos and doodles, schnauzers and I love to groom all our puppies. I am an animal first aider.
I mostly support Amanda with the day care, boarding and admin. I look forward to meeting you."
