Dogs wear their hearts on their sleeves, so it's pretty obvious when they've had a great time with a groomer. We believe that a fun experience is as important as a top-notch trim or an immaculately clean coat. While our four-legged clients can't vouch for their experience in words, their owners can. Here's what some of them have said about their dog's experiences at Dogs of the North… 

Susie is beyond incredible. Our groodle, Maggie, had extreme matting and is a high energy puppy. Susie was so patient and kind and when we collected Maggie she was completely relaxed and looked amazing. Susie’s attention to detail is so impressive and her knowledge about how grooming relates to a dog’s health and wellbeing was so helpful for our family. Susie’s premises are immaculate and welcoming. Thank you, Susie. Maggie is looking forward to seeing you again in November!
Many thanks!

Neville, our 15-month-old Schnoodle, had never been professionally groomed before. We’d heard about Susie and took the plunge. After a one hour drive to get to her, we loved the set up. It was clean and inviting. Susie had a kind nature, and spent time discussing the look we wanted to achieve and making Neville feel comfortable. Two hours later, he looked amazing. Susie had taken grass seeds from between his toes and removed all his knots, while still achieving that incredible look (my children were in awe of him). We wished we had a wedding to take him to – he looked so smart!  He was bouncy and excited and obviously enjoyed the experience. Susie has a real passion for what she does. She is a perfectionist and it shows. The care and attention she gave Neville was really appreciated. We cannot speak highly enough of this experience.  Thanks so much Susie.

Have definitely found my new groomer. Susie was fantastic with my pup – who can be a little temperamental – but she spent the extra time with him to make sure he was comfortable. Thank you Susie, terrific job!

Susie was very caring with our dog and really went the extra mile to get a really fabulous result. Our poodle arrived a big tangled mess and came back happy, fluffy and tidy. We will be back. Thanks for doing such a great job Susie.

I am delighted with Normie’s haircut; he’s a little spoodle. Susie did a great job. Now my daughter is taking her Labradoodle to Susie.

Susie’s gentle care and attention with our dog Toby was exceptional. Toby came home, not only with a sharp-looking coat, but very happy with himself! We will definitely be back.

I can’t recommend Susie enough. She is the most gentle and caring groomer I’ve come across and our girl looked and smelled just beautiful when we went to collect her. She painstakingly removed matts from between her paws that a previous groomer hadn’t even looked at. She was kind and the minute I saw her interact with Saoirse (our dog) I knew we were in good hands. The space is exactly as it looks in the photos - lots of room and only one dog at a time. Feeling very lucky to have found Susie at Dogs of the North.

Susie was the most caring groomer I’ve met. She discussed different options and has really good advice. When I picked up Jay Jay and Coco they had a smile from ear to ear and the best cuts I’ve ever seen on them.

Susie was fantastic. She took time to get to know my dogs before she started grooming them and consulted with me as to their needs and personalities. One of my papillons can be quite temperamental but Susie handled him beautifully. Both dogs were relaxed and happy when I collected them. Most importantly for us, Susie used products that suited my sensitive little boys’ skin. No itching and rolling around trying to get relief as has happened at other groomers. Already booked our next appointment.

Susie was so gentle to Cookie when grooming her. It was Cookie’s first groom. Cookie looks wonderful with her new hair cut and toenail trim. I would recommend Susie to anyone.

Alfie took to Susie straight away and came back to me beautifully groomed and cheerful. Susie is very professional, has a great set-up for dog grooming, and I will definitely be back!
