We received an email in September to let us know that we had made the final 4 of the Grooming Business of the Year from the Pet Industry Federation. We were invited to attend their gala dinner in Warwickshire on the 17th October 2013 where they host a Hollywood themed Oscar night to celebrate the pet industry and the top boarding kennels, pet product manufacturers, distributors, industry greats and of cause grooming establishments and much more.
On the night Deborah Meaden from Dragons Den and Strictly Come Dancing was presenting the awards. We sat at our lovely table accompanied by Your Dog and Your Cat magazine, PDSA and family. To our delight (and shrieks) Shampooches of Harrogate was announced as the winners! We were presented with a gorgeous glass trophy from Deborah and she was so kind and thrilled for us. We even had a giggle because I had asked her for a photo earlier just in case we didn’t scoop the award, but she knew we had won but had to ‘go along’ with my photo session knowing we would be doing it all again later. hehe
Andy and I are so over the moon to receive this recognition and would love to thank all those who have supported us and been such kind and loyal customers and friends.
