Testimonials

My springer spaniel Harvey had his first visit with Julie at A Star Canine Spa and he was so happy. The gentle attitude and kindness she showed was outstanding from the second we arrived to when we departed – the most handsome and attractive dog ever!!! He smelt beautiful too and was totally unstressed and happy. Both Harvey and I would recommend Julie with her kindness and generosity of love.

Took our goldendoodle Lily for a full bath and groom. She can be a bit shy so it was great that she was the only dog there. No restraints were used and she was groomed at her own pace meaning she was completely at ease when we arrived to pick her up and came home looking and smelling fab. Would definitely recommend.

Julie is brilliant. Our puppy is 3/4 through the puppy package and we have been consistently impressed with Julie’s handling skills, calm approach and grooming expertise. Our puppy loves going to the spa, which is exactly the kind of positive association we wanted to build early on. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much! My pugalier Frank can be very anxious around strangers and new things so has never visited a groomers. We are so pleased he managed to get his nails clipped on the first visit. Something none of us pushed for or expected! Great calming experience with some good advice we will try and a good cup of tea too!!

My mom and I were so happy with the treatment that our dog Toffee received, she is usually quite nervous about new experiences but Julie took such good care and time with her and Toffee was totally relaxed, in fact when we went to collect her she was having a nap after her wash and blow dry. Totally recommend!

My little fella Barney got the full five star treatment today! Julie is so calm, so experienced and clearly knows exactly what she’s doing! I arrived to a super smart little man who was happy and relaxed! I would have no hesitation in recommending Julie and A Star Canine Spa and Barney will back soon to have his next pamper afternoon!! Thank you for looking after my boy Julie!

This morning’s visit to the A Star Canine Spa was amazing. Dougie was a little nervous to begin with but soon calmed down in Julie’s capable hands. Julie clearly loves dogs and managed to get Dougie to do whatever was needed without any restraints whatsoever. We will be back for sure. Thanks Julie! I couldn’t recommend A Star Canine Spa more.

Not only is Julie an excellent groomer she also understands what the dogs are feeling and knows how to put them at ease. I was so impressed at how she treated my dog and how amazing he looked afterwards. It is so pleasing to know that I now have a groomer who will always put my dogs needs first. Definitely a full 5 stars!
