Dogs by Design is a professional, caring and personal dog grooming service based in The Reddings, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
Using only the best quality grooming products, your pet will be given one to one attention in my fully equipped grooming room, where I can clip or scissor to breed specification or modify the coat to your requirement.
There is no noisy salon or rushed busy atmosphere to worry about, this is a home from home where your dogs welfare and happiness is my priority.
Please note, I am no longer handstripping.
Dogs by Design, gives a very professional, friendly and knowledgeable service. My Yorkshire terriers requirements are discussed and reliably carried out in a relaxing, homely atmosphere by Rose, who shows genuine love and affection for her clients.
Thank you Rose, I have always been impressed amazed with the results of your work and have no qualms in recommending Dogs by Design to anyone who requires a trustworthy service."

I am so pleased I have found you to groom Harry. His coat has never looked so good and he comes back happy and relaxed as he hasn't got to wait his turn in a room full of anxious dogs."
-Sue, owner of a Wirehaired Daschund (Handstripped)
There are so many reasons one would recommend Dogs by Design. The home-from-home environment, the unhurried, 'dogs-comfort-comes-first' approach to grooming, the abundance of toys for the dogs to play with, the fact that they only have one dog at a time... And then there is Rose. A wonderfully talented and knowledgeable groomer, whose kind and respectful approach to my dog has made him fall head over heels in love with her. In fact, I had a real problem persuading him to come home with me when she'd finished!"

Rose has groomed my two Cocker Spaniels since she started her business in 1995.Dylan is clipped whilst Clyde is handstripped.
I have been impressed with the high standard of customer service and the warmth and care shown to my dogs on every visit. It is reassuring to know that my dogs will receive individual attention each time, in a clean, relaxed and friendly environment.
I have also been delighted in how much the condition of their skin has improved and how shiny and soft their coats have become whilst being groomed by Rose.
Rose shows a genuine and professional interest in Dylan and Clyde, highlighting to me any matter which may require further attention.
To sum it all up, Rose delivers consistently high standards and most importantly my dogs enjoy going to see her."

I felt that I had to drop you a line to say how delighted we were when we collected Monty after his grooming session.
As I explained earlier, he has had some disastrous experiences in the past tha we were starting to think that there was something wrong with his behaviour.
On Friday, he looked so handsome and was his usual relaxed and happy self. I really would like to say a very big thank you!"
-Sue, owner of a Westie
Thank you for the quite magnificient grooming given to Twiggy. She arrived a tramp and left a lady! I thought the service you provided was both personal and professional and I would certainly recommend you to all my doggy friends and have done already."
-Debbie, owner of a Terrier Cross (Handstripped)
After meeting Rose at puppy classes 12 months ago, I had no hesitation in taking my little Westie to be groomed.
Monty is my first dog and therefore Rose gave me brilliant support with both his ongoing grooming needs but also his all round care...I couldn't have got through puppy training without her!!
Thanks to Rose's care and attention when Monty is groomed he is now a confident bright and bubbly little dog, who relishes his trips to see her."
-Sarah, owner of a Westie
You treat the pets as if they were your own. My own little dog greets you so happily and is very very comfortable with you throughout her grooming - It is obvious you really love the animals and your work - certainly a very lucky find for us. Thank you very much for your care and caring."
-Jan, owner of a crossbreed (Scissor Style)
I own a 2 year old Cocker Spaniel, who hates any sort of grooming! But she happily visits Rose on a regular basis.
Rose is so good with her and has totally won her round. She studies every dog individually and will take every care to give the dog a professional grooming, no matter how much of her time is taken up producing the final neat appearance, without causing the dog any stress.
I would thoroughly recommend Rose, who really cares about every dog......and owner! I would not dream of entrusting my pet to anyone else."
-Mrs Pat Thomas owner of a Cocker Spaniel
When I first got Freddie, my miniature Schnauzer I struggled to find a groomer that could give the right Schnauzer look. We had crazy eyebrows and wonky beards !! My husband commented that finding a groomer for Freddie could prove as hard as a hairdresser for me. But then we met Rose and we have never looked back, Freddie always looks great and is much admired when we are out walking, I recommend Rose to anyone who asks. He is nicknamed "Gorgeous boy" or "velveteen rabbit" after a grooming session. He is always happy to go to Rose's. Rose is also a fountain of knowledge about all matters dog related."
