About me

Welcome to Rachels Clip n Tails Dublin. A little bit about me: I am a dog lover first and a groomer second. Currently I have two dogs of my own, Tallulah a Yorkshire terrier and Mia a Golden Lab.


In 2008, I decided to change career and become a Dog Groomer. I graduated from my initial training course with Ann Collins of the Grooming Pad in 2008.  In late 2008 I opened Rachels Clip n Tails in Ballinteer. I opened my second salon in 2011, Clip n Tails Blackrock.


I entered my first Dog grooming competition in 2009, and placed 3rd from 17 competitors. Since then I have entered coloring competitions and in 2010 placed 4th. This experience has helped me to develop an eye for detail, balance, scissoring and breed personality in my everyday grooming.
