Special Recognition Wyre Business Awards 2015

Wyre Business Award 2015

We are so pleased to announce that Henna's Happy Hounds is the proud recipient of the Wyre Business Awards Special Recognition category.

Presentation to Henna of the Wyre Special Recognition Business AwardLife is full of surprises!

My new salon in Thornton-Cleveleys was opened early in 2015 and since then I have met some wonderful and caring dog owners.  Many of my clients have become good friends, they always express their pleasure and gratitude for the styling I have done on their lovely dogs - but you never really understand how sincere their compliments are. 
Until something extra-special happens!

In Novemeber 2015, unbeknown to me, several of my customers nominated Henna's Happy Hounds for the Wyre Business Awards.  I discovered this when I was informed that I had won a Special Recognition award and was invited to the presentation dinner.  I am blessed to have so many friends and satisfied clients in the Fylde area and I am extremely grateful for this huge compliment they have paid me.  My sincere thanks to everyone who nominated me for this award.  The picture is of the presentation, which Adel and I were proud to receive.

...and more surprises...

All of us expect the very best service when we visit any business, it's the least we should expect.  It is easy to express our appreciation for what we receive in these days of electronic communication, we can send a text or email to express our feelings within just a few minutes.  But to take the time to sit down and write a letter (by hand) is unusual in this electronic age.  That's why I was so proud and privilaged to have recieved this letter from one of my new customers, which I would like to share with you:

"Dear Henna,

I just personally want to say a kind thank you so so much for how you have transformed our babies.... I can't thank you enough. Not only do they look amazing but you have brought out their best features and their colours and made them even cuter and smarter than before. We will not be going anywhere else and will be sure to recommend you to everyone.

Love all your little touches from treats to bows to tiaras to how you make them up for photos and doggy perfume .....and their coats are super soft!!!! so so happy and grateful!!!! Have a wonderful weekend."

....and that's what makes it all so worthwhile, thank you.


About The Groomer

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Henna (Helene actually, but Henna to my friends) and I am the Henna of Henna's Happy Hounds.  Dogs have been my passion throughout my whole life and I couldn't be happier working with them every day.

I was born and grew up in Sweden but have lived in the North West UK for many years.  I met my husband here and we now live happily with our two loving dogs, a black cross-lab and our young patterdale-cross rescued dog. 

For many years I have made hand crafted toys, leads, collars and coats for dogs.  This interest led me to baking special dog biscuits and treats for my own dogs and friend's dogs - which led to many more people bringing special requests for all types of treats to suit their own dog's allergies and diets.

My goal was always to be able to work with dogs and grooming was the next logical step, it encompassed my desire to spend time with our canine friends and to utilise my practical craft abilities.  I am a strong believer that if a job is worth doing, it is worth doing well - so my first step was to locate the very best dog groomer training facilities available and gain the skills and knowledge that my grooming clients deserve. 

I regularly attend seminars throughout the UK to enhance the styling skills that we are able to offer your dogs and to maintain the very best practices for the salon.  As a result of this we are able to offer our clients 'Fusion Grooming' and specialist styles and styling techniques.

Professionally Qualified

City & Guilds qualified dog groomer

After undergoing several months of intense training with numerous breeds of dogs I have gained both the City & Guilds Level 2 Dog Grooming and the City & Guilds Level 3 Professional Award in Dog Grooming.  In addition to these trade-recognised qualifications, I also have The Academy Professional Diploma for Dog Groomers.

In addition to the City & Guilds qualifications, I have several styling diplomas received from further courses attended over many years.

Canine First Aid qualified dog groomer

I believe that our dogs deserve the very best of care and attention, and to ensure we can give this to all of our canine companions I am also fully trained and qualified in Pet First Aid.



Before opening my Dog Grooming Salon in Thornton in 2015 I have experience of grooming and styling many breeds of dogs in Longridge, Preston, many of whom travel to Thornton to continue their grooms.
