Wouldn't Go Anywhere Else

Claire R

After a couple of bad experiences with groomers, leaving us with a nervous dog at the groomers, we found Steph at Top Dog. Lola has been groomed by Steph for years and I would not take her anywhere else. The one on one grooming is really important to us and Lola. She looks simply beautiful every time.

Fantastic Service

Julie E

Archie is a regular with Steph at Top Dog, and he always comes home looking fabulous and smelling wonderful! More importantly for me, with previous groomers, Archie had always been anxious, scared and would shake badly, yet with Steph he is always so pleased to see her and is never in a hurry to leave. Fantastic service all round!

Barney loves his trips to see Steph at Top Dog Groomers, he always comes out looking fabulous and you can tell in his attitude he feels great. Steph is just so lovely and welcoming and I know my dog has separation anxiety but it doesn't show when he's through the door. I can leave him knowing he is not stressed. I feel very fortunate to be on the client list of Top Dog I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Top Dog will only allow a 10-minute window, after your scheduled appointment, before we can no longer accept you for the session. If you do not arrive on time, your allotted time slot risks running into the next customer’s time. We do not allow this to happen, in case of unsocial/anxious behaviour. 7. Fleas: We ask that you please do your best to make sure your dog(s) does/do not have any Fleas before entering the Salon.

Shaving: Following the Animal Welfare Act, if your dog arrives with any matting in the coat, the Groomer will carry out work which is humanely best.

The cost of clipping off any matted coat will automatically include a de-matting charge, of £10. This will be added to your grooming session price. This is to cover the cost of maintenance of equipment used. **Should you not agree to removal of a matted coat and wish a de-matting instead. We will not be accepting you for your grooming session. But you may still be charged for the time slot** Please speak to your Groomer, if you wish to book appointments closer together, to help prevent matting. Or if you choose to keep the coat length short on the Ears and Tail, as well as the body. 10. Pricing: Top Dog price fairly & accurately.
