For today’s post I wanted to share my first full groom with you!
I am in the middle of completing a grooming course at Bishop Burton which I have been doing since March. The dream is to hopefully own my own grooming salon in the future. So I thought why not test my skills and see if I can successfully groom my own dog George.
I love everything about dogs which is why I started ‘The Furry Friends Club’, once my dog grooming skills are 100% I will be adding dog grooming to The Furry Friends Club’s services.
Here is a picture of george before as you can see he was very fluffy and scruffy looking….still cute though!
And here is after! I must say I am pretty proud of it myself, it did take a while, I am definetly not fast enough yet but I’m getting there.
I would love to know what you think 🙂 🐶
For today’s post I will be continuing to write about my the dogs that I walk.
Blue – Staffordshire Bull Terrier
I want to first introduce you to Blue the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. How gorgeous is he… he is full of energy and has such a kind and playful personality.
Our walks are normally highly energetic involving balls and a large playing field 🐶. Blue was my first client and loves nothing more than chasing George around a field.
Elvis – Jack Russel
Next I want you you to meet the lovely Elvis. Elvis is the cutest little Jack Russel. He is so sweet…. as soon as I walk through the door he is super excited and always wanting a cuddle. He gets on really well with my dog George they have created such a bond it’s so lovely to see. 🐶
Stay tuned to meet some more lovely doggies…next week I will be writing a post on Stanley and Lily.
Thanks for reading, Emily (The Furry Friends Club) x

I’ve been thinking about making these dog treats for awhile now so thought I would make a tutorial along the way for everyone to try. I’m making these biscuits to give out to my loyal dog walking clients and for some delicious homemade treats for my dog George.
makes around 24 biscuits depending on the size you cut them.
275g Wholemeal flour
100g Grated Cheddar Cheese
150g Grated Parmesan
1/2 cup of milk
- Pre heat the oven to 170 degrees (fan oven)
- place all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl
- add the egg and the milk and mix together until you form a dough
- roll out the dough and using a bone cutter cut out 24 bones
- bake for around 15-20 until golden brown
I hope you enjoy making these treats as much as I did. George has demolished his first one and looking for more… success!.
Welcome to the first official post of this blog.
You join me on a very scary but exciting day…….this is the first day of being a full time dog walker. Previously I have had the back up of a small part time job in between walks but I decided to take the jump and do it full time. Dogs have always been my passion, I am what you can call.. a crazy dog lady! whenever a dog passes in the street I am immediately smitten and must have a stroke. Since also joining my dog grooming course I have learnt a lot about dogs and gained a huge insight into the animal industry. So hopefully this all works out and my passion and hard work pays off!.
Back to today’s post, I wanted to introduce you to some of my dogs that I walk they are all completely different in personality and i love every single one of them of course! but first I want to start with my own dog George- my boo. He is a 2 year old Lhasa Apso X Shih Tzu. He loves joining me on my walks and making new friends.
My First Client – Trixie
I next want to introduce you to my first ever client, she is such a sweet dog, so well mannered and still full of fun! she loves nothing more then running on the field with a ball. Her name is Trixie an 11 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback.
This is going to be a carried on post as there are too many dogs to introduce in one post. So I thought I would start with my own dog and of course my first client. This will be a weekly post so next week I will introduce you too Elvis the Jack Russel and Blue the staffy!
Stay tuned as posts will also inserted in between these posts.
