About us


After many years of preparing dogs for the highest level of competition Top Trimz was established (in 2004).

It all started from our hobby of showing dogs.  Our main breed is West highland White Terriers which we have shown for 24 years and have been Top UK breeders on 3 consecutive occassions. A few years ago we were especially pleased to appear on BBC2 winning at CRUFTS with our home bred Champion Burneze Chatter Box who went on to win 13 CC's & 15 Res CC's . We have been very successful in the show ring and now have 9 UK champions.  Our breeding has also been very successful overseas.  We have met some wonderful people and because of our hobby now have friends all over the world.

Dogs have and will always be a big part of our life.  We are especially lucky to be doing a job that we love and meet so many lovely dogs & their owners.


The proprietor  has spent many years developing her grooming skills,  and is a qualified City & Guilds advanced dog groomer and has now completed her higher diploma in dog grooming (the highest accolade in dog grooming) an acolade acheived by only approx 28 dog groomers in the UK.

Making her one of the highest qualified dog groomers in the Co Durham Area.

(City & Guilds is the only recognised qualification in dog grooming). 


Unfortunately there are no regulations  for dog groomers and a lot of groomers are not qualified.  If you are unsure about a groomers ability to groom your best friend ask to see their qualifications. 


Dont choose your groomer on the  price alone, choose them on their skill and ability to groom and care for your pet correctly.
