Tanya is the senior stylist at Brittanya For Mucky Pups and strives continuously to expand her knowledge and skills. She is a competition groomer and has won awards for her grooming including being "Groomer of the Show" at the Grooming Matters event in April 2012 and winning first place for a handstrip Norfolk Terrier in June 2012 . Tanya has been passionate about Poodles since owning her first Toy Poodle from the age of 15. It was her first poodle, Sam, who inspired her to work with dogs as he put up with endless hours of grooming whilst she experimented with her own style during her teenage years. Now, many years later, she continues this inspiration on a daily basis.
