About Clipsters Dog Grooming

Clipsters is run by Charlotte.

After fifteen years working in education as a teacher and a manager, Charlotte retrained in dog grooming and care. She gained her Level 3 City & Guilds qualification and in 2020 started her own business, Clipsters.

Clipsters operate from a dedicated, clean, purpose-built grooming room with professional-grade, specialised bath, drying and grooming equipment (from the excellent Christies Direct).

Despite opening less than a month before the first Covid lockdown, Clipsters has blossomed into a trusted local business with a great group of loyal customers.

Clipsters focus entirely on dog grooming, working with only one dog at a time so they get Charlotte’s complete attention. We don’t offer day care, walking or physical shop services so your dog (and their groomer) won’t be distracted or disturbed. This makes Clipsters especially suited for first-time puppy visits and nervous dogs.

Clipsters are based in Walthamstow, near Wood Street and Hale End Road. We can be easily reached from Highams Park and Chingford as well as Leyton and Woodford.

After a successful couple of years with Clipsters, Charlotte also gained a certificate in dog training (with a distinction) from the Dog Training College. Clipsters will soon be offering limited training sessions and classes for dogs and their guardians.

Charlotte is ably assisted (and sometimes hindered) at Clipsters by Simon who does all the non-doggy stuff like the website and the Clipsters & Co. dog product retail business. Ironically, he is allergic to dog hair (but Charlotte didn’t know that when they met…)
