Who Are BIGA?

BIGA is the British Isles Grooming Association, a not-for-profit trade association and community support network, created by groomers, for groomers.

Our online membership comes with lots off benefits and opportunities for professional groomers and people in the trade. 

We are associate members of the Canine and Feline Sector Group (CFSG) which advises government directly about proposed guidelines and policy formation for professional groomers.

As a member of BIGA, you have the chance to make your voice heard in any proposed regulation that will directly affect your business, your livelihood and the everyday ways you work.

Our number one priority is the highest possible standards in animal welfare. Be a part of something BIGA.
