As from July 2015 I have officially retired, I would like to thank all of my loyal customers over the years. It has been a pleasure grooming your dogs for you and I will miss seeing both my customers and their dogs. Sadly the time has come to hang up my clippers, I wish you all well for the future.
About Dean Dogs
Dean dogs is a small dog-grooming business, run from a purpose built grooming room attached to my home. This means you only pay for the service I provide, and not for me to rent an expensive high street premises, keeping the cost down. I am based in Pillowell near to Lydney in the Royal Forest of Dean Gloucestershire. Customers come to me from Lydney, Coleford, Cinderford, Monmouth, Bream and Yorkly, a few travelling from as far afield as Gloucester and Newport
I have been grooming dogs for over 40 years, originally trained by one of the top groomers at the time, over the years I have groomed dogs belonging to pop stars and TV celebrities, Crufts best in show winners, rescue dogs and many much loved pets,
I also breed and show dogs of my own, and judge dogs at championship level both at home and abroad, so this is not just my business, it is my way of life.
My prices are kept as low as possible, to enable customers to make regular appointments, rather than leaving long gaps between appointments, allowing the dogs coat to become filthy and matted, which is then harder for me to groom, and far more uncomfortable for the dog.
This does not mean you get an inferior service – far from it in fact. I only use Johnsons or Whal dog shampoo’s, and only do a few dogs a day, so that your dog gets my personal attention at all times. The price you pay is for my expertise both as a dog groomer with over 40 years’ experience, and a dog handler. My first priority will always be the welfare of your dog.
I am now semi-retired I only normally work 3 days a week. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and I only take small and medium sized dogs, leaving the larger heavier breeds to younger groomers!
I do not work weekends or evenings at all. As I work alone, the grooming parlour will be closed when I take a break, so please remember to book early, and do not leave things to the last moment, to avoid disappointment if you need your dog groomed for a particular date.
I appreciate it, if you call me, if you could make it during the working day Monday - Friday, as I do not always have my diary to hand in the evenings and at weekends.
