Dog grooming guru, Colin Taylor, joins Anna to discuss the growing sector of grooming in the UK. With the soaring population of ‘doodles’, grooming as become an essential aspect of daily care that’s often not factored in by new pet parents.
As a Judge on the popular BBC series, Pooch Perfect, Colin explains why this show is educational whilst tailored for TV as a ‘knockout’ competition. With over 30 years in the industry, Colin highlights the health and welfare aspects of grooming, not to mention encouraging owners to take on basic aspects of grooming themselves as part of being a responsible owner. He chats about how people can get involved and what it takes to become a ‘master groomer’.

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?
They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.
Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.
She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.
It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
