Ch Bayleigh Shaireab’s Man of Steel “Clark”

Clark's Life with Professional Groomer Julie Lalou Simpson in the UK

I am a dog groomer from the UK who participates in worldwide grooming competitions. In 2014, I began competing with a Welsh Terrier and fell in love with the breed. I started winning the hand-stripped classes at various competitions and after that I knew I had to own a Welshie. I had been following Lindsey Dicken (groom team USA) in the USA who was competing with the most gorgeous Welsh Terrier named Clark, Ch Bayleigh Shaireab’s Man of Steel. I’d dreamed of having such a beautiful dog and when Lindsey mentioned he was available – I had to make sure he was mine. I set about arranging his move to the UK, and a month later he was home and settled in with me and my family. Since November 2015 we’ve travelled all over Europe together winning many trophies. Clark and I are now a part of the UK groom team and at the top of the Groom Team England points board.

In addition to being a great work partner, Clark is an amazing family dog. I have twins with special needs and he is very tolerant and loving towards them.

My adoration for him led me to set up an Instagram account @clark_and _carrot where he and my fox terrier, Carrot, have over 2600 followers. I know for certain the Clark won’t be my last Bayleigh Welsh Terrier”
