Day of the dog reviews

I was truly blown away by the level of care, service and understanding “day of the dog” provided. I constantly feel like my Sampson deserves more than I give him, so decided to treat him to a grooming session. I was really worried about how he would be treated, but after speaking with Shim and meeting the team, I felt relaxed and knew I was in the right place. Sampson came out with his head held high…looking and smelling like a new dog!! If your reading this review worried like I was, don’t think about it, and trust me…. Your in the right place! Thank you guys and see you soon. X
Always taking great care of our dog!

One of the best grooms that I’ve ever had for my dog. Smelt gorgeous, nails cut short enough without hurting him, very even cut. Pleasure to deal with and reasonably priced.

I took my 5 month old cockapoo to Shim for her first and second haircuts and I just loved the way my dog looked both times! Shim has a great eye, is really caring, does a brilliant job and the dog came home like a new puppy! Highly Recommended.

We got Day of the Dog from a quick Google search as our normal groomer was closed. What a find! We'll definitely be using Shim as our groomer from now on. We have a 6 yr old Shih Tzu and this is the best job we've had. Quite reasonable too. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

They are really lovely caring people. Shim was amazing with my dog Ella. Shim was very accommodating and the time arrangement was just perfect. I highly recommend this place. Good value for money and they were really professional.

Absolutely fabulous service. Both my pups looked beautiful when I collected them and smelled devine. Kennel No. 5 for the girl and Canine Klein for the boy!!! 🤣 Shim is so friendly and accommodating that you feel as though you have dropped your doggies to a friend for the afternoon. Such a pleasure and my pups felt like crushed velvet when I picked them up. Book with confidence you won't be disappointed. 💙🤗💙

Our cockapoo puppy had his first groom with Shim at Day of the Dog. I was a bit nervous as i didn't really know what to expect plus we had never left him with anyone before. Shim gave him such an adorable style. He looked so incredibly cute and smelled amazing (still does). He was totally calm during the process and apparently was falling asleep with all the pampering. It's great knowing that we hit the jackpot finding a local groomer first time round. Arthur looks forward to coming back again soon. Thank you so much x
