• "The best care for your best friend!"
  • "What are dogs for if not for spoiling?"

Hello and welcome to my website, my name is Sara and I am a professional Dog Groomer. Firstly I would like to give you a bit of background on myself...

First and foremost I am a dog lover, we have always had a variety of dogs in our family ranging from German Shepherds and Burnese Mountain dogs to Dachunds, Yorkies, Pomeranians and now my new love my Chow Chow Josie!..some (my husband!) may say she is spoilt...but I like to say she has a unique character!..but I mean really...What are dogs for if not for spoiling?...so while you will not see me entering obedience classes at Crufts, you can rest assured that your dog will receive love and kisses and be thoroughly spoilt during their grooming session with me!

Six years ago I sat behind my desk at work daydreaming about what I could do with my life that I could involve my love of dogs with. Then I hit on the idea of dog grooming and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it earlier!..I promptly researched the best groomers and trainers and eventually decided to undergo my training with the best, Rachel Gotourbe-Smith of Posh Pets in Spain, who has run various successful grooming salons across the UK and Europe and taught hundreds of people to a very high standard, Rachel taught me everything I needed to know and I returned to the UK, bought a mobile grooming salon and launched Doggistyles in 2007..now six years on although I no longer have the mobile unit, I am still loving my chosen profession and work from my beautiful salon at home in Ilminster, South Somerset. Doggistyles has always offered one to one grooming and this has not changed, I do not use cages or drying booths, your dog is given 100% attention from me and will be the only dog in the salon so you don’t need to worry about other dogs and noises that may make your dog feel anxious.

I am very proud of my new salon which my husband and I designed with your dogs comfort and happiness in mind, It is modern, heated and hygienically maintained at all times and set in our beautiful walled garden your dog enjoys a lovely view whilst being groomed!
