Craig Chalmers-Lang: Doggie Style Grooming Edinburgh Scotland

It's not very often that a groomer has a beard but in this case, Craig Chalmers-Lang is the exception to that rule! Located in Edinburgh, his main room is 180 square feet and then there is a long hallway leading to a small bathing room. His shop specializes in small to medium dogs, with an emphasis on Hand Stripping and Asian Fusion.

Craig gives classes all over the UK in Asian Fusion and Hand Stripping and also does pet portraits that are to die for!

Craig and his husband Roger used to work together in the shop, but a close call with pneumonia meant that Roger could no longer be around the hair and dander, so Craig now works alone, but it's ok because the small shop means lower overhead. They still live a grand life and take vacations as well as staying extremely involved in their community and with their friends.

 A very successful shop in a small format means they can live the lifestyle they want, travel for vacations and stay involved in their community while doing the job that he loves.  A larger shop would make that harder due to increased costs.

In a field dominated by women, Craig shows that men can and are successful, talented and that sporting a beard will not slow you down!
