Andover dog grooming business secures council grant

Happy Barks and Bubbles Dog Grooming with Sarah in Andover, Hampshire, has received a business incentive grant of £750 from Test Valley Borough Council. 

Owner Sarah Rule decided to have a change of career and left her hospital job as a Senior Healthcare Assistant to open her new dog grooming business. She based her new business at The Fairground in Weyhill, near Andover, in the same building as Coco’s Canine Creche.  

She undertook training at Sparsholt, learning to groom her own dog, which prompted further training and a career change. 

Rule said: “I am pleased to receive a grant from the council, and I plan to use the grant to change the water system so that I can bathe dogs upstairs in the building where I do the grooming.”
