“Helen has been grooming my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Poppy, for a good many years. The convenience of having a mobile groomer coming to my dog’s home is a wonderful service. Helen is very well equipped with the tools of her trade and is an extremely pleasant young woman.
As soon as Helen comes in the door she greets Poppy and makes a fuss of her. During the groom she is constantly talking to Poppy, reassuring her and keeping her calm while she works her magic turning my hairy Cavalier into a trim and smart dog. Poppy also has her teeth checked and cleaned.
Helen gives extremely good service, my dog is relaxed and happy, she really enjoys her pampering”.

“I am so pleased to have found Helen! She always makes such a great job of Bramble and Bramble is so relaxed around Helen, which makes the whole experience that much better all round. So much so that Bramble laid down on her recent trim and almost fell asleep!
Helen is a natural around dogs, she is always very professional in her work and although I am always here when she grooms Bramble, I would have absolutely no problem with Helen coming into my home without me here.

“Helen has been grooming our pups for over a year. She is such a good find! The girls really love her and always look wonderful after their groom. We could not recommend her too highly, she is a treasure”.

Misha and Foxy are a Japanese Spitz and a Japanese Spitz cross Collie.
**Since writing this review they have acquired another Japanese Spitz who I have been grooming since a puppy. All 3 also have the Emmipet teeth brushing service with their grooming appointment**
“Helen has been grooming Jack our Cocker Spaniel for the past year and we are more than happy with her service. She’s friendly and has a good rapport with Jack.
She does a really thorough professional job, and we would be happy to recommend her to anyone”
“What can I say, I’ve known Helen for about 14 years. Millie my Westie loves her. Helen always talks to me or Millie, she does not stop. I feel like I know her family as I have met her husband and daughter on numerous occasions.
Millie looks lovely after Helen has finished with her, she does her nails and cleans her ears too.
I love that she comes to us and not us to hers
I would and have recommended her to friends as well. Keep up the good work!”

“We were lucky to find Helen shortly after adopting our dog. He absolutely loves to see her little blue car arrive in front of the house and sits ready in the kitchen. He even lets her shower him – no mean feet for a dog that is “allergic” to water.
It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome Helen every few months for the past 8 years. She is a warm, friendly person who can put even the most nervous of dogs at their ease and does the grooming with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of good humour and chat.
We would recommend Helen to anyone needing a reliable, safe dog grooming service – thank you.”

“Helen has been grooming my Yorkie x Westie now for about 7 years. She chats to “Tuppie” short for Tuppence all the time, which relaxes her. Not that she needs it as she is a very laid back dog anyway!
Helen is a very professional person in what she is doing with Tuppie.
I will not take Tuppie to a parlour now as she is used to Helen and we love her. She is a very bubbly person!”

“Helen has been grooming my two Chinese Crested Hairless for 4 and a half years.
Mouse, my youngest dog, has known Helen since he was a couple of months old. He is deformed and very nervous.
Helen is professional and extremely kind to the dogs, and is extra chatty with Mouse which keeps him calm.
They both love her!”

“Helen has been grooming our little dog for the past 11 years. She is a friendly lady who is ver patient with Frankie who is rather timid.
I would recommend her.”
Frankie the Pomeranian.
“Helen has been grooming my dogs for over 14 years. So has not only groomed them from puppies, she became firm friends with them. Helen has also been very kind when our dogs passed away. We only have one dog now but he looks forward to seeing her and thoroughly enjoys his ‘hairdressing’ experience.
I particularly like the fact that Helen comes to the house, and enjoy hearing her ‘chat’ to her ‘client’!. She has a very calming and reassuring manor throughout the appointment.
Helen has become a good friend over the years too and all the family enjoy seeing her and catching up with her latest news.
I would, do and have recommended her to anyone I know who has dogs. She is very professional and does a very professional job, and very obviously takes a great deal of pride in doing an expert job.”

“Helen has been coming to groom my dogs for over 3 years now. She was recommended to me by another Border Terrier owner and as I wanted someone to hand strip them and also come to the house it’s proved perfect!
Helen is so kind and patient with them, always chatting away to keep them calm and happy.
So not only do I have contented dogs but perfectly groomed ones too! It’s really appreciated.
Thanks Helen, you do a fantastic job!”

“Helen has been grooming my two girls for about 6 years now. They think they own my house but when Helen is working on them they are on their best behaviour. Helen puts them at ease and talks to them constantly. I don’t think Daisy or Jemima would want anyone else grooming them now.
Thanks a lot Helen”.
Peter Franklin 8th September 2016
“Helen has been grooming Louie for about 2 years.
We are delighted with the service she offers. Louie is a lively 10 year old Springer Spaniel and Helen is very kind and patient with him.
He always looks lovely after he’s been groomed and I highly recommend her service.

“Helen has been grooming my Scottish Terrier, Bessie for nearly 7 years, since she was a puppy.
Bessie is a very nervous dog and I chose Helen because I wanted someone who would come to my home. Helen is very kind, gentle and understands Bessie’s needs. The fact that Bessie will let anyone groom her is amazing but she is so well behaved for Helen, who talks to her through the whole process and keeps her calm.
I wouldn’t want anyone else to groom Bessie. Helen always does a fantastic job.

“I have known Helen for over 12 years from when she first came to clip my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Sam.
I found her to be very conscientious and keen on animal health and welfare.
Whilst grooming Sam she discovered a cancerous lump on his front leg and informed me immediately. I took him to the vet and had the lump removed. He continued to lead a full and active life.
She has now groomed 4 of my dogs, Tess also a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and currently Bob and Tess, they are Cavachons with very curly coats. They have posed a few problems with their coats but Helen has overcome these and she grooms them to a very high standard. She has great patience and a natural affinity with them. Both dogs are very relaxed when being clipped by her.
She advises me on brushing and grooming tips and what brushes and combs are suitable for their coats.
She is a very pleasant lady and we always have a natter.
