About Me

Welcome to Barking Beauties!

Hi, my name is Nikki and for as long as I can remember I have always loved being surrounded by animals of all sizes. I cannot remember a time that I haven’t had dogs in my life so a career in dog grooming has always been my dream job. I am currently the proud owner of a very cheeky English bull terrier called George and Charlie my elderly Welsh Cob which I have had since a yearling.

I carried out my training with Julie Lalou at the award-winning Dog Delights Grooming Academy in Chiswick (UK Grooming School of the Year 2016) and successfully completed my City and Guilds level 3 in Dog Grooming.

At Barking Beauties my top priority is that the whole grooming experience is a good one for your dog, I always try to relax the dogs in my care and will always treat your beloved best friend exactly as I would want mine to be treated. For this reason I only ever work a one-to-one basis to avoid any distractions that can often upset a nervous dog. Dogs are not put in cages or cage dried. They are also given cuddles on request!

I pride myself on listening carefully to your styling requests, and take the time to discuss the best cut for your dog’s lifestyle and their coat type. Some dogs just love to get dirty so keeping them short is the easiest way to maintain a healthy coat and clean house.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to book an appointment for your dog to enjoy any of the services listed.

I look forward to meeting you and your pet soon!

All the barking best,


Proudly Serving The Betchworth, Reigate, Redhill, Dorking, Leatherhead and Epsom areas




“My little pooch is very very nervous around new people and often I’d pick her up from other groomers and she’d still be shaking. She wasn’t when I picked her up from here! She was wagging her tail and generally really happy. Which makes me really happy! Fab cut as well and gave me some advice on how to sort out matted fur. See you soon”
