What's My Customers say

here are a few of my most recent customers

Shirley Griffiths

Very pleased with Maisy’s groom today. It was her first visit-to see Gemma. We were quite worried because she doesn’t usually sit still on the table, Gemma took a video of her to reassure me, couldn’t believe it there she was with her tail wagging. Already booked again. Thank you so much Gemma

Denise Stebbing

Thank you so much Gemma for giving our Cockerpoo Poppy a lovely head trim/style today after a grooming salon near where I live did an awful job on her… needless to say the drive is so worth it and she will be back.. I’d highly recommend Gemma and Perfect Paws to anyone.. x

Jessica Henry

Thanks for sorting out Beatrix today. You’ve done a great job 👍🏻 She looks like a proper posh doggie now😁 Great service. Thanks again x

Lauren Fielding

When I rescued my dog he was extremely nervous but was in desperate need of the full works and microchipping. Gemma calmed him and completed his was and brush up and his microchip. Now as soon as he knows he is going to visit Gemma he bounds up to the door and greets her with wags and kisses.

Perfect Paws

Dogs should enjoy being groomed and chances of this are greater if regular grooming is started from an early age. Little and often is best, starting with a short visit and building up as your dog becomes comfortable with being handled.
