I am originally from Sweden but moved to live in Ireland in 2011 and opened up Dreamdogz in Kilmore Quay in 2012. Dogs have always played a big part in my life and in most of my working life too. They have also been my profession in different ways. I have worked as a vet nurse for 10 years, teacher at an animal college, kennel maid, pet shop assistant and for the last 25 years – groomer and grooming teacher/lecturer.
In my free time I have bred and showed apricot Poodles of all sizes and Wire Haired Fox Terriers since 1990 . A large amount of dogs with my kennel name “Sisterhood” have reached their champion titles in both the show-ring as in various working disciplines.
I have also trained dogs and their owners to understand each other since 1980 when I become an obedience trainer. This has given me a wide understanding and knowledge of all aspects of the dog owning life – from coat care, nutrition, training to breeding and healthcare.
I took my grooming career further in 1999 when I started to compete in grooming competitions all around Europe. This is a rewarding activity – you learn to know groomers from all corners of the world and gain so much knowledge from the seminars and talks that are held together with the competitions.
