Hi, I’m Fay, the owner and stylist here at Fay`s Diamond Dog Grooming. I have always loved animals and like a magnet find myself drawn to them. I have been very lucky to grow up my entire life with a variety of animals including a wide variety of breeds of dogs, ranging from a Long haired Dachshund, Basset hound, German Shepherd Dog, St Bernard’s, Great Dane and Bernese Mountain Dog, Cocker Spaniel, Border Collie and Romanian rescue mix breeds.
I gained my first City and Guilds dog grooming qualifications in 2004 at a local college. This sparked my passion for the industry and I groomed for a while after but due to a growing family and other work commitments my grooming career had to hold. It was in 2014 when I opened my salon; and was fortunate enough to be able to commit to grooming full time, that would ignite an even greater passion and release my potential into this amazing journey that is unfolding before me.
It was with the help of the Princes Trust that the dream of owning my own dog grooming salon became a reality. I attended the Enterprise Course (a small business course) and created an in depth business plan to present to a panel (similar to Dragons Den); One of the best days of my life…I was accepted for the start up business loan and as a bonus awarded a business mentor, Tracy Westley (a bank manager). I am forever grateful and thankful to the Princes Trust and Tracy and am honored to be a Young Ambassador for them.
I am a firm believer in continuously striving to better yourself and to be part of an industry that is continually evolving. I attend regular seminars and grooming shows to keep up with new trends and the latest equipment.
Since opening my salon in 2014, I have continued my professional development and have achieved the following:
Animal First Aid – Animal Aiders
City and Guilds Level 3 – The London School of Pet Grooming
City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma – The London School of Pet Grooming
Awarded “Further Development Learner of the Year” – The London School of Pet Grooming
I have completed the International Certified Master Groomer qualification – IPG (International Professional Groomers)
City and Guilds Level 4 LCGI (Licentiateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute) - London School of Pet Grooming.
Earning the prestigious title of "Fay Greene LCGI ICMG"
I have also tried my hand at competition grooming, joyfully placing 1st at one.
I am proud to be a member of both The Groomers Spotlight and the British Isles Grooming Association, they are both helping the industry to propel forward into the future with hopes of positive change and raising professionalism.
Whilst your pet is in my care I endeavor to create your preferred trim / hair style, catering for your specific needs to the best of my ability and always giving one hundred per cent throughout the entire grooming treatment. Ensuring all the while your pets safety and welfare is at the top of my priority.
I care deeply about all the animals left in my care and live by my motto, “A life in the service of animals, is a life not wasted”. I have a Facebook business page and Website which are updated regularly, the links are
