My poodle looks amazing

Caitlin was very kind, and gentle with my nervous toy poodle. She quickly made him feel happy. I was explained everything she was going to do, and she even phoned me during the groom to make sure I was kept informed of how my dog was doing. His cut was perfect.

Looks and smells gorgeous!

My poodle looks amazing after Kerry clipped him at Woodford. Best clip he’s ever had. He is a very nervous dog and she knew exactly how to handle him and put him at ease straight away. Well done!
