Cathy Wallace

Cathy Wallace lives in Oamaru, which is situated in the South Island of NZ, approx 3 hours drive south of Christchurch. She has been part of the 'doggy' world since the early 1980's, when she began showing her first beloved breed, the Old English Sheepdog.  
She just loved grooming, and decided to turn her hobby into a job by opening her own business in 1992 'The Grooming Shop' which she still operates today. She mainly works on her own, so really enjoys catching up with other Groomers at workshops and exam times.
At the 1993 Groomalong Competition she won the very prestigious title of NZ Groomer of the Year. (grooming a gorgeous little Bichon/Lhasa mix). She became a NZ Certified Master Groomer in 1999 and now enjoys helping the new Groomers coming through. Cathy is an Examiner for the NDGANZ and regularly judges in both N.Z. and Australia.  
Cathy enjoys breeding and showing  Lhasa Apsos and Shih Tzu, and have very proudly  bred/owned many Best In Show winning dogs over the years. Cathy is also licenced to judge Working Dogs and Non Sporting dogs at Championship show level.
