Our Story

My name is Alice Aherne, and I am the proud owner of Murphy’s Dog Grooming Ltd.

I was brought up in Cheltenham and have a love for all animals especially dogs, cats, and horses all of which I have grown up with. My new shop is named after Murphy who is our family’s oldest dog a lovably Golden retriever.


I worked as a Hairstylist in Cheltenham for 10 years before heading off to travel to Australia where I spent the most fabulous 4 years of my life. It was there that I decided on a change of career, and this was to become a professional fully trained dog groomer. Since training and prior to setting up my own business I have been working in practice where I have gained a vast experience grooming and looking after the widest range of breeds.
