A woman has fulfilled her lifetime’s ambition by setting up a dog grooming parlour.
Rebecca Mackie, of March, has opened Mackies Mutts at Skylark Country Store & Garden Centre, Manea Road, Wimblington.
The 29-year-old, who used to train police dogs from when they were puppies, has completed her professional dog groomer qualifications.
She has bought her own chalet and fully equipped it with a bath and grooming table to pamper her doggie customers.
She said: “It’s a dream come true for me. I’ve always wanted to run my own business and I absolutely adore dogs.
“It has been hard work setting things up, but at long last I am up and running and open for business.”
One of the first dogs to enjoy the pampering experience was Manea woman Judy Thorpe’s King Charles Cavalier Molly, who was in for a bath, blow dry and cut.
