I have 3 Cocker Spaniels and they just love it at pooch! And so do I! You walk into reception and it smells exactly like a people spa. The setup is stunning with individual grooming areas and separate waiting bays. Everyone is incredibly friendly: genuinely interested in the dogs, their personalities and needs. They really take time to talk to both people and dogs. My elderly 13.5 yr old dog Monte has a variety of special needs; today’s is a weird lump on his neck that’s going to be surgically removed later this week! Lauren was amazing: she worked around it, without using any perfumed products, so he emerged clean, soft and gorgeous once more! I also have two young pups and pooch introduced them both to the idea of grooming, which they adore. I’m really fussy about my furbabies and it took me a long time to find pooch. All 3 dogs love going in to pooch and don’t give me a second glance! I’m so thrilled and relieved I’ve found them! I drive 45 minutes to get there and it’s definitely worth it. Don’t hesitate to trust them with your precious pooch.

Took Dougal my Labradoodle here for the first time today and I couldn’t be more pleased with his whole experience! It is by far the best groom he has ever had (& he is 6!) – everyone was just amazing from beginning to end. Thank you so so much xx

Sammy Nichols (Aug 2016) – 5 star
I was really worried about getting our girls groomed for the first time as we have never left our pooches with strangers before – we had a free familiarisation meeting with a lovely & professional lady (wish I could remember her name, sorry) she really put our minds at ease – they went in for their groom today and came out smelling and looking beautiful – the whole spa looks great and is really clean – what I really loved was when our girls came out into the reception area they were wearing little blue bows – it was a really cute touch – we will be coming back and recommending you to all our friends & family.

We took our old red setter Ruby to pooch today and they were amazing. Her coat had been destroyed by being spayed! But they sorted her coat out and also helped her stay calm, the difference in her when we picked her up was unbelievable usually she is shaking, but not this time Oh and she looked gorgeous too. Thank you pooch we will be back

Emily Mahon (June 2016) – 5 star
Amazing treatments and they are so lovely to the dogs! You can tell they really love the dogs and want them to feel comfortable and happy!

Beverley Carter (June 2016) – 5 star
Took my dog here to be loved and groomed and that exactly what they did. Libby doesn’t like baths or being brushed but these ladies made it enjoyable for her and when I arrived to collect Libby I couldn’t even hear her crying which she normally does if we leave her but because she was so relaxed and chilled she was sleeping away. Libby doesn’t like being left with people she doesn’t no but these ladies made Libby feel at home.

Tanya Skene (April 2016) – 5 star
Visited the Pooch dog spa for the first time yesterday with Miya, this was her first visit to a groomer so really wasn’t sure what she would make if it. My main reason for visiting was to see if it would relax Miya enough to allow someone to trim her nails without her getting too distressed (we have never managed to achieve this before). We were both greeted by a lovely lady who had Miya relaxed enough not too even notice I had gone. Once ready to be collected she looked absolutely beautiful, smelt gorgeous and they managed to trim her nails without a problem!!! I can’t thank you enough for this and will definitely be returning! What a wonderful team you have.

Andrea O’Donnell (August 2016) – 5 star
Bella had her first puppy groom and she looked amazing. I was a bit nervous how she would react leaving her but she had an amazing time and was so happy when we collected her. I’ll definitely be going back for all her grooming, great recommendation.

I have taken my 1year old Bichon xMaltese in here today, and I can easily and happily say that I am very happy with the service provided! He’s had a lovely trim, I didn’t recognise him at first! I’m very happy with this place and I’ll be booking in again in a few weeks for my other dog too! Can’t wait to treat them at Pooch Dogs Spa

Sally Childs (March 2016) – 5 star
This was the first time my rescue dog had been to a groomer- they made a nervous pooch feel at ease and I cannot express how happy I am with the service received! Highly recommended and will be rebooking- mum has found one she can trust!! Thanks Shirley!

Sam Oliver (January 2016) – 5 star

I can’t thank you enough! Buddy loved his first Puppy Groom yesterday. We had a lovely warm welcome from all the staff and he was instantly relaxed. I felt like a mum dropping off her kids to school on their first day! When I picked him up it was so lovely to hear he had a great time and enjoyed all the treatments. He came out with a spring in his step, confident and happy. He smelt fabulous and I was thrilled. I’m looking forward to seeing his photo put online. We will be going back very soon and highly recommend Pooch Dog Spa to everyone!

Claire Vaines (April 2016) – 5 star
Phoebe and Plato had their first visit today and loved it and I am told they were very well behaved. When I collected them they were very glossy and calm. Really recommend this place

Karen Davies (February 2016) – 5 star
Both Buddy and I love Pooch. He’s had his first full cut today, normally just opting for a wash’n’fluff. He looks amazing, but sure it won’t last long! The spa is always beautifully clean, which says a lot for me. The staff are lovely and patient, Buddy loves going and comes back every time really chilled afterwards. Would highly recommend.

Sammie Stone (April 2016) – 5 star

Simon Hood (July 2015) – 5 star
Today was Barney Pug’s first visit to Pooch Dog Spa. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but they did an amazing job. He had the wash & fluff service along with a facial. He smells good enough to eat, and his coat is so soft and fluffy. They sorted out his nails and pads – it’s literally like he’s a puppy again 🙂 The best thing of all is that he enjoyed – he loved all the attention he got. Only issue now is I don’t wanna let him near any muddy puddles! Thank guys – we look forward to seeing you next month!

Suzy and Family X

Vanessa Hope (June 20150 – 5 star
Used pooch dog spa for the first time yesterday and couldn’t be more pleased!! They were welcoming, friendly and flexible. We saw where our dog was looked after and groomed, nothing was hidden. Although it was late when we collected him we didn’t feel rushed, in fact it was quite the opposite. Our dog looked the best he has ever looked in his whole 2 years of life, even more cute and lovable (if that’s possible). He wasn’t clipped all over as he had been at other groomers but lovingly brushed for hours and trimmed with scissors and the difference was obvious! The price may have been a little more but it was well worth it for a much happier dog. Thank you Pooch Dog Spa!

Phillip Rockett (January 02016) – 5 star

Lee Walker (October 2015) – 5 star

I was very impressed from the moment that I walked into the boutique. Buster is a cross, he is a yorkiepoo and his hair is very soft yet knots easy, with this in mind I thought that the ladies did an amazing job on my little boy he looks adorable and smells sooo good. He spent the morning sleeping after his relaxing treatments. The little touches were so sweet and very special, love his little Blue bow, Thank you, I shall be bringing little Buster back and I shall recommend you to anyone else looking for a top quality dog groomer.

My two bichons visited Pooch Dog Spa for the first time week and had a wonderful experience whilst there. They looked amazing when we picked them up and we have had lots of comments on our walks about how good they are looking now. Shirley and her team spent the entire day grooming them, they were very matted when we turned up and I appreciate how much hard work and patience it must have taken to get them looking so good. Thank you so much, will definitely be back.

Lisa Hersey (March 2015) – 5 star

Many Ferry (March 2015) – 5 star
What a fantastic find! Alfie, my golden retriever, was in for his first spa visit today and the girls were just fab with him. He is 6 weeks post cruciate op and has ichthyosis, a skin condition, but you went above and beyond to look after him and took great care and attention when washing and brushing him. He can’t wait for his next visit 🙂

Karen Champion-Grange (March 2015) – 5 star
We took our little rescue dog Jenny to Pooch Dog Spa and the ladies were so kind and gentle. They were aware of her nervousness and looked after her well. Jenny had a lovely makeover and a fantastic haircut, she was very happy and calm when we arrived to take her home. We will definitely return when Jenny needs pampering again.

Have one happy, clean Ben dog today. Thank you! Will be booking him in again.

Louise Hutchings (November 2014) – 5 star
If there was a higher rating then pooch dog spa would be getting it – my dog had extremely matted ears and I needed an urgent appointment with a groomer. Such care and attention was taken that now I would not take my boy anywhere else. 2 future appointments already booked and my business is guaranteed! Would highly recommend to anyone, decent prices, loyalty scheme and by far the best groomer I have come across in the 10 years I’ve owned my dog – not sure what else I can say except if you love your dog, this is the place for you – Thank you Shirley
