Hello, my name is Michelle. I am the head stylist here at House Pets. I was born in 1981 and married Ron in 2004 who works with me. We live in Oakley Vale with our son, cats and tropical fish and tortoise. I hold a level 3 Animal care certificate from The Animal Care College and I am an Accredited Pet Care Professional by the Pet Care Trust.  I hold a City & Guilds 7698 level 3 introductory dog grooming certificate and City & Guilds 7722 Dipolma - professional dog stylist.. Also a Diploma in Canine Anotomy & certificate in  Canine first aid and CRP which is renewed every 2 years. I am currently doing a Canine nutrition Diploma.


All staff attend confrences and seminars and continue to promote professionalism, honesty and respect within the pet grooming industry.


Ron joined House Pets in March 2016 after leaving his previous role and has not looked back. His days now are filled helping in the parlour and caring for your beautiful pets who seem to enjoy his company in return. If you phone you will normally speak to Ron.

Michelle started her career in 1997 working in a large 150+ boarding & rescue kennels in Milton Keynes which offered a lot of career progession and she became the managress here while living onsite. Alongside this Michelle was fortunate enough to work with police & prison dogs via kenneling contracts and also with the council and the dog warden contract. This offered a wealth of knowledge and she gained a lot of valuable experience.


In 2001 Michelle pursued a career in dog grooming and took a job as an assistant groomer in a busy salon. In 2005 we moved to Corby and Michelle took a job in a large kennels & cattery. She was promoted to kennel supervisor. In 2008 Our son was born. After a period of being a stay at home mum,  she returned to the kennels part time and in 2012 Michelle took the leap to become self-employed and House Pets was born.
