Press release: Canny Cuts – where Quality is Assured
Canny Cuts dog grooming salon has become one of a select number of businesses in the UK to achieve the new Quality Assurance Standard for Groomers. Designed to help cat and dog owners find a reputable groomer, the Quality Assurance Standard was launched by the Pet Industry Federation in 2013, in association with Dogs Trust and PDSA. Canny Cuts has now been officially awarded its certification. Quality Assured Groomers have to pass a rigorous inspection and testing process to ensure their knowledge, health and safety procedures, business practices and animal welfare policies are up to scratch. ‘Grooming is unregulated, which means that anyone can set up in business, no matter what their qualifications or experience,’ said Nigel Baker, Chief Executive of the Pet Industry Federation. ‘Sadly, there have been incidents of injuries to animals – or worse – in grooming salons. Whilst these incidents are few and far between, the general public may not know where to turn to find a groomer they can trust. Specialists from national charities Dogs Trust and PDSA and the British Dog Grooming Association have launched this scheme to provide peace of mind. Quality Assured Groomers have demonstrated that they operate to best practice guidelines and put animal welfare first.’‘We are delighted that Mel Overend, who runs Canny Cuts, has had the courage and enthusiasm to take on the challenge of achieving the Quality Assurance Standard,’ said Nigel. ‘Our inspectors were impressed with the salon and the services Mel offers. I am sure this will be of particular interest to pet owners in the Shropshire area.
