Welcome to DARALIS Dog Grooming
(The new name for four paws)
I have been established in North Sompting since March 2004, and I am a highly respected, well-known dog groomer, with over 20 years experience.
I am fully qualified with a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists, and also fully insured.
My purpose built salon is based within my home and is a bright, calm and safe environment. Not to mention your dogs will have a lovely view of my garden whilst they are on my grooming table, with often cats, birds and squirrels to watch!
I offer grooming on a one-to-one basis, working with only your dog at any one time. If you have more than one dog, you can decide whether you would like to bring them together or separately.
If you would like to see any photos of the dogs I have groomed, then please visit my Facebook or Instagram pages.
When I set up Four Paws 17 years ago, I was only grooming a couple of dogs each week, for a bit of pocket money and independence. I had no idea that my business would grow the way it has. Or that I would get the opportunity to gain my City & Guilds qualifications. I didn’t put a great deal of thought into my business name, other than to check out the other local groomers at the time! And “Four Paws” is a fairly bog standard, unimaginative name that is now being used by several other businesses in the area.
For a while now, I’ve been looking for inspiration to create a new name. I mulled over one or two, but neither were quite right. And then a few weeks ago, it hit me!!!!
So, Daralis Dog Grooming was born. “What does it mean?”, I hear you ask. The dog on the logo, which was professionally made by CK Designs, is my darling baby bear, Frodo. His registered pedigree name is Charney Daralis. Charney being the kennel name of his breeder, and Daralis being his “name”. It means “beloved.”
He was my first Japanese Spitz. If we’d never had him, we’d have never found Bilbo or Chica. As I wanted to also include Bilbo on the logo, the paw print is his.
So in memory of my beautiful boys who I lost in May 2021, I am now called Daralis Dog Grooming. It will take a little while to swap everything over online etc, so I will still be connected to Four Paws while everyone gets used to the new name. x
