Heather- I am the owner of SPRUCE and Hattie our cockerpoo. I have the C and G L3 and ADVANCED higher  Diploma in Dog Grooming.

This is Gina, with her dog Gibbs; Gina has semi- retired, having been grooming for nearly 50 years... and has a remarkable level of skill and talent. SPRUCE feel lucky to have her!


We have a very fine group of City and Guilds apprentices currently, Aaron, Lucie and Latoya, all working hard towards their Level 2 qualifications. SPRUCE has a proud history of apprentices, and most stay on to work for SPRUCE upon achieving their City and Guilds qualifications.

Kittie, (possibly the tidiest groomer in the County!)  joined us in 2022 as an apprentice, and now supervises the Cricklade salon team, with a wealth of skills from her background in hairdressing.

Marisa brings both her quiet confident approach and her qualifications, (level 2 City and Guilds, soon to be L3) to the Cirencester Toomers salon;  Marisa was self- employed at Belmar in Swindon, and as a true accolade to her talent, many of her dogs are following her to SPRUCE in Cirencester!

Jordan was a fantastic find for the Cirencester salons, having worked previously at Happy Hounds in the marketplace, Ciren. She is a whizz with our software platform, has excellent scissor skills, and owns Bandit the terrier.

This is my long- suffering husband Jason, who is at the heart of SPRUCE, supporting me, keeping all equipment working, and fulfilling SPRUCE DIY duties admirably. Qualified in IT and project management!


Madi and Niamh joined us  to complete their volunteering for their silver and bronze Duke of Edinburgh awards. They were both huge assets to the Saturday team, and their love for dogs clearly shines through.
