About The Pet Studio

Liza Smith – Teacher, Assessor & Dog Groomer at The Pet Studio

Founder of The Pet Studio, Liza Smith has been grooming dogs since 2000, when she opened her first grooming salon in Congresbury.  Since then, Liza has built up her expertise and outstanding local reputation within North Somerset.  So now not only do we provide dog grooming services, but we also teach the next generation of dog groomers as well as owners looking to learn to groom their own dogs!

Liza has a huge passion for dogs and has spent over the last 20 years honing her craft, so whether she is grooming your dog in the salon or inspiring and motivating trainee groomers in the Academy, she always brings her signature enthusiasm and support to whoever needs it.

So if you’re looking for a company that understands dogs inside out, look no further than The Pet Studio. Liza brings her skills and experience to every groom, training session and provides her personal assurance of quality and professionalism every time.

Skye Braham – Groomer and Teaching Assistant

Skye is Liza’s daughter, who went to college after leaving school to study Animal Management.  This only lasted two days before she realised that she actually wanted to be a professional dog groomer!  So Skye joined Liza at the Pet studio Training Academy in 2020 and quickly completed her City & Guilds Level 2 qualification.

Skye is a compassionate and caring dog groomer, and her calming nature has led her to specialise in nervous, fearful dogs and young puppies.  Skye’s interaction with these animals is such that they always have an relaxed and stress-free grooming experience and this stems from her absolute patience with all the animals she grooms, allowing them the time and space to acclimatise before embarking on any groom.

Skye also specialises in ultrasonic teeth cleaning and is able to provide outstanding results whilst keeping the dogs calm and relaxed. 

Skye has three dogs of her own that she cares for, Marnie, a 6 month old Rottweiler, and Pixie and Cookie, her two Chihuahuas.
