The Dog House was established in April 2008 by owner Sonia Chivers. After many years of commuting and working in London I decided to have a change of pace and find a job that I loved . I trained at The Canine Design Academy in Dog Grooming and have never regretted my decision to change in fact my only regret was that I didn't do it sooner !
Alot has changed since I first opened the doors .
Different premises which some of my customers have been to them all ! Ive taken on staff and sadly lost Merlot who was a huge part of The Dog House, but the ethos has remained the same to work with the dog to build confidence in a calm environment.
Shedfield - where is all began in 2008 .
