"It's no wonder people book with you because of how the dogs are returned. I've never seen them as happy and they act like you are their new best friend."

Dear Mr James,

I thought it might be helpful to drop you a line about the quality of the service my dog, Bess, received when we went to Sue Alexander fro the first time last week. We had previously used the services of Debbie and were uncertain asto whether Sue would deliver the same quality of service.

Bess is a lively three year old springer, who does not respond well to strangers and can be a bit of a handful. All I can say is that Sue was absolututely superb in how she handled Bess, explaining exactly to us what our options were, what she suggested she was going to do and how Bess looked after her "wash and cut". For her part, Bess obviously thoroughly enjoyed the experience and her whole demeanopur showed how proud she was afterwards with the "new image".

I would recommend Sue to anyone, not only for the quality of her professional services, but for her friendly manner and natural warmth. What comes over is someone who knows and loves what she is doing, is very knowledgeable and has a genuine affinity for dogs.

All of which reflects highly on your selection and training systems. You are delivering a service of quality to the community.

Yous sincerely,

Had a call to do a dog - Molly, a cross cairn/westie and it was for a clip and wash. Mrs Blackaby told me Molly would be very difficult as she never keeps still so she arranged for her daughter Debbie to stay in the van with me all the time.

With Debbie holding Molly, I managed to clip her and then bathed and attempted to dry her. She hated the dryer and tried to eat it!!. I finished her off with a towel and Debbie thought I'd done a great job.

Debbie thought her Mom would be really pleased so she took her in while I cleaned up. She told me to pop in for a cup of tea. Debbie explained to her mom how hard I'd worked on Molly.

I checked my mobile later for messages and heard a message from Mrs Blackaby, saying " after Molly dried out I realised she looked lovely and that you'd done a great job. I'll definitely book you again and thank you"

"Just a note to let you know how pleased we were with the work you did on Ellie and Jasper in Hammondstreet Road on Friday. I couldn't believe how gorgeous they looked when I got home from work that evening. I liked how you just trimmed their fur a little behind their haunches and round their ears etc , where it grows so long and starts going into ringlets, especially Jasper. Brian said they jumped happily into your van and then emerged like new dogs! Much more convenient and more pleasant for them than going into a shop to have it all done. It's a great way to look after your dog and I shall be recommending you and the company to my friends.I will be calling to make another appointment in a couple of months so we can continue to keep their coats nice and neat and clean. This is going to be a fairly regular thing now I have found the easy answer for getting my dogs groomed and looking good!

Thank you very much!

Regards Jackie Routledge"

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful job Tanya did on Jack today. He obviously feels better for your care and to have his claws cut without the trauma we normally have at the vets was wonderful.

many thanks Lynda Rugby"

From the Fife Area

"I just want to say that my two dogs Chloe (rottweiler) and Rosie (labradoodle) have just experienced you service and the results are fantastic!

Chloe thoroughly enjoyed the pampering having had a good scrub and Rosie looks absolutely amazing after her haircut - a first class job. Both dogs were completely relaxed after the grooming and I will most definitely recommend your service to others.

It was brilliant to have the van come to our house and it took the stress out of transporting the dogs to a groomer and leaving them behind, which I do not like to do.

So, many, many thanks to you all.

From the Glasgow Area

"Hi there, I just wanted to say a big thanks to the service I received by one of groomers, Fiona, She cut my "problem" dog a few weeks ago, (late thanks due to work commitments)

Having had to get him sedated in the past we decided to give it a go without getting him knocked out and due to the cost, was over £100 last time.

Fiona was fantastic the cut she gave him was superb and will be getting her back on a regular occurrence to groom him.Also passed her number on to some neighbours and will certainly spread the word."

Thanks again, Sharon Granger (one happy owner)

From the Hull Area

"I would like to say "Thank you" for the excellent service we received from Mr Paul West a licensee of Dial a Dog Wash Ltd. He arrived on time, listened to how I would like Holly trimmed then disappeared into his "Workshop". An hour or so later he produced a very well manicured much loved family pet who clearly had enjoyed Mr West's attention. Holly is 10 years old and has never enjoyed (until today) being groomed.

I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to my friends.

Wishing you much success.

Kind Regards, Maggie Hankinson"

From the Lanarkshire Area

"Just a big Thank You for doing such an excellent job with my 2 dogs. They are absolutely gorgeous. I know that you had a job on your hands with the puppy but I have to say she is lovely. Most importantly both dogs are normally out of sorts for a few days as they don't normally like the experience of getting their hair cut. Not this time. They were both very happy on Saturday night. I wouldn't hesitate recommending you to others."

"Dear Martin, Thank you for giving my dog misty a new lease of life. She is 15 years old, looked and acted like it. After you groomed her, she came out looking and acting like a two year old and is continuing to do so. She looks beautiful and I am so grateful as she can be difficult sometimes but she was happy with you and having you working on the doorstep is brilliant. I will be in touch soon if only for a wash as she has benefited so much. Thank you once again." Mrs Clarke, Norwich

From the Oxford Area

"Just wanted to say thank you. What a super service. My Springer Pup looks gorgeous and smells much better than she did yesterday. A friendly and very efficient service. I will definitely be using you in the future. Thanks again." Eileen Donnelly (and Libby)

From the Solihill Area

"I have been using Julie White for a few months now. She is fantastic. What a fabulous idea! My dog is less stressed and much happier after being trimmed by Julie.

The last time he was trimmed in a salon, he was quite ill. He was stuck in a cage for quite a long time and he was being sick. When he got home he was quite upset.

But now things have changed. He loves Julie and is quite happy to be trimmed by her.

Thank you for bringing this idea to England. Keep up the excellent work."

From Angela Hulston and Jaspa - Birmingham

From the Stafford Area

"Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful transformation that my Golden Retriever - Kai underwent last week.

After 90 mins the van door opened and out stepped a beautifully washed, trimmed and gorgeous smelling dog who seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Kai is getting on in years and we didn't relish the thought of leaving him in a salon . When I read that Ian had taken on the franchise for Stafford I was really chuffed as I had read so many good things about Dial a Dog Wash.

I have booked Kai's next session and look forward to a repeat performance knowing he is in good caring hands

From the Stockton Area

"I found your website and the thought of a van that comes to the house clinched the deal. 

I booked an appointment with Glenn and waited in anticipation to see if he could do anything with my 3 yr old rough collie, she was somewhat matted.

She took to Glenn straight away and I was amazed at his patients in trying to remove her numerous clumps of fur.

Glenn is a very patient and caring groomer that I will be calling on again once the winter mud ascends. He gave me the impression that time with the dogs was his priority and he never gave me the impression he was rushing. The fact the van comes to you is the reason I will be returning.

"Hi Deb

Just to say thank you very much for Sweep's dog wash today. Alan was great with him and did a fab job. Sweep looks really lovely now and smells great too!

So sorry Sweep had so much fur on him and was smelly - we won't leave it so long next time. Sorry he played up a bit too, but he wasn't as bad as I thought he might be!!!

I will be in touch again soon when I get back to work next week and check my work diary so I can take a day off in September/October time and book another appointment in with Alan for Sweep.

Thanks again

Just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for grooming our Rottie, Tyler.  He always looks and smells great after you've been and thoroughly enjoys being pampered! Everyone always comments how good he looks and I always recommend you to everyone that passes comment.

 Thanks again. Helen, Alex and Tyler


 This was the first time I had used Dial a Dog Wash, for my 13yr Alsation. Julie was very friendly, but totally professional at all times. My dog Max enjoyed his bath,even having his claws clipped, he and looked and smelt great afterwards. Julie was very good at handling him. I shall be using this service again, a service you can trust.”
