About the author

Shirley Pope

After leaving her corporate career to pursue working with her first love – dogs, Shirley launched Pooch Dog Spa. She is a devoted animal lover and has owned and groomed dogs for most of her life. As an active member of several dog rescue charities, Shirley is a foster carer, and has successfully rehabilitated and re-homed a variety of dog breeds. Shirley decided to combine her love of dogs, and her experience of staying at some of the world’s leading hotels and spas, to design a luxury grooming and spa experience for pooches. Pooch Dog Spa was born, and is the first of its kind in Hampshire, UK. Shirley is a proud pet parent to three shih tzus – a shih tzu, a shih tzu/pug cross, and a shih tzu/chihuahua cross.
