Customer Testimonials

It was very difficult to find someone to trim and groom our Bichon Frise puppy five years ago, until another Parlour recommended 'New Forest Dogs' ! Teddy has been a regular ever since. As he needs frequent grooming, he has an appointment every four to five weeks to keep his coat in prime condition. After spending two hours with Jo, Teddy comes out looking beautiful and smelling gorgeous! The service Jo provides is second to none. Highly recommended!!

I've been bringing my two border terriers, George and Gracie, to Jo for some years now. I've never been happier with a dog groomer. The two muts go in looking like dirty doormats and come out exremely smart, years younger, and thoroughly excited. Clearly the experience hasn't been an ordeal. Jo's wonderful - she clearly knows how to handle dogs, to strip, to snip, to clip (claws too with never a whimper) and to bring out their best features, even managing to knock a couple of pounds off Gracie's rather too generous girth!
I would thoroughly recommend Jo's wonderful topiary work.

New forest dog grooming came highly recommended. I took it up, verdict without doubt, professionalism at it's best.

We have been sending our Bichon Frise Caesar to Jo for 3 years now, since he was a puppy. We have always been happy with his cut, especially as Bichons aren't the easiest to 'style', and Jo cuts him to our specifications. He always comes out looking beautiful and so white! I'm not sure how she does it! As Jo is very busy, we make sure we book in advance, but she is flexible with the times so we can fit it around work and other appointments. Caesar is now very used to going to Jo's and is comfortable there, so we certainly won't be going anywhere else!

Jo has been grooming my Cavaliers for over 9 years and I have always been totally satisfied. She is very professional, highly skilled and works in a well equipped environment. Not only do they look good when Jo's groomed them they enjoy it too!

Ishka is always beautifully clipped, bathed, dried and groomed when I pick her up from Jo's. Jo and her team always take great care and also pay close attention to small but important things like plucking excess hair from Ishka's ears etc (can be a problem for Beardies if left).
Jo is very flexible and will always endeavour to squeeze Izzy in for a quick wash and grooming session at short notice. I am also reassured that Ishka is well cared for by genuine animal lovers too as she is always happy when I drop her off!

We have been bringing our standard poodle to New Forest Dogs since we moved to the area in 2001 and have been delighted with the service provided. When we collect our dog after his appointment not only has he had a thorough wash, blow dry and hair cut, he returns to us very relaxed. Jo also groomed Ozzie beautifully for a television appearance where naturally he was the star of the show (even though the producers did put pink ribbons in his hair!). We would not hesitate to recommend Jo at New Forest Dogs for a friendly and reliable dog grooming service.
