“Val is a very approachable, extremely professional canine beautician. Her love of dogs and her chosen profession are self-evident, and Molly’s love of visiting Give A Dog A Comb manifested itself rather unusually one summer’s day when she appeared out of nowhere at the door of Lavender Cottage whilst I was nowhere to be seen (which is rather a long and unrelated story). I have no hesitation in recommending Val to other dog owners and only wish she had accompanied me to my new home on the Isle of Lewis.”

Hi Val,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for the care, time and love
that you showed Alfie. He has never looked so beautiful, the cut was perfect
and he was so relaxed (considering our previous bad experiences). I am so
impressed with how professional and knowledgeable you all are and thank you
for taking the time to explain, show and educate me on how to groom my dog

It truly was a 5 star service, You’ve definitely restored our faith in
groomers and I will happily recommend you to anyone!!

See you next time!!


“Thank you once again Val for treating Misty Blue as if she was your own and cutting her so professionally. Your attention to detail, your knowledge of Old English Sheepdogs and their coats, coupled with the time you take to create perfection, makes me very, very happy to return to you again and again. Misty was an incredibly nervous dog when she first came to you, owing to previous groomers wanting to ‘clipper’ her coat quickly and not giving her the attention she needed. You have patiently worked with Misty and she loves coming to see you and leaving like a ‘million dollars’. We are already looking forward to our next visit.”
