Hello, my name is Lisa and I'm the very proud owner of Gentle Touch Dog Grooming. I am fully qualified to City & Guilds Level 2 & 3, First Aid
trained, I've studied dog behaviour and I am trained in dog massage. I am a proud member of BDGA, the British Dog Groomers Association and PIF, the Pet Industry Federation. Dogs are my passion and my aim is to give them the best experience of grooming possible.
As a mummy to two very special fur babies, I know how important it is to find a groomer that will treat your best friend with love, respect, gentleness and kindness.
This is the main reason I trained to be a groomer myself.
In my modern, purpose built salon at my home, your fur baby will be welcomed and treated as my own,
to build on trust and confidence along with comfort, kindness, care and respect.
Adhering to the five freedoms, fresh water and toilet breaks are encouraged.
I do not cage or restrain any dog in my care, allowing he/she to exhibit normal dog behaviour. I work purely on a 1:1 basis.
I use treat based reward to build on confidence, happiness and fulfilment and in turn this instills grooming as a positive and something to be enjoyed.
We all live busy lives and it's difficult to organise our best friends hair do's, but here at Gentle Touch I offer evening and both Saturday and Sunday appointments.
Young or old, you can be rest assured that your fur baby will be treated
with the upmost respect. I will always do my best to prepare for any need
and ensure that your best friend receives the very best care and love.
Their happiness and comfort is my priority.
Using only safe and gentle shampoos and products
Gentle handling and treat based reward
to build positivity
Grooming with love, care and respect
is the Gentle Touch way.
All fur babies visiting Gentle Touch Dog Grooming will receive a 7 point health check with any findings noted and feedback given on collection
Marley had his haircut with Lisa this week. We've tried various different groomers over the past 8 or so months, but I can honestly say Lisa is by far, the best. For the first time, Marley returned, happy (and not traumatised) and his hair looks amazing. Marley was really looked after and returned with treats and a bow tie. If you're looking for a Groomer... you've found her. Cant recommend Lisa enough. Thank you! x Andrew
Just picked Tilly up from gentle touch, Lisa is so amazing with Tilly, not only is the actual groom brilliant, but it’s knowing that she’s really looked after in Lisa’s care, I know that she takes time and care to make Tilly feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible..
Absolutely brilliant, she smells divine too. Sarah x
My miniature schnauzer puppy has just had her first puppy groom with Lisa. What a delightful experience. Lisa took her time to make sure Winnie felt at ease, no restraining and everything was done at Winnie's pace. Lisa spent far longer on her than any high street groomer would have I'm sure. My puppy has never smelt so clean!
Beau had her first visit to Lisa today...a fantastic experience for both Beau & myself not only does she look & smell fantastic but was happy and calm. I felt at ease leaving Beau with Lisa who clearly loves and respects dogs!! I highly recommend.
Lisa is fantastic! We have just returned from our first groom wih Lisa and it was the best experience of grooming both Lockie and I have ever had in his 4 years. Lisa took the time to get to know us, asked lots of questions about Lockie and how I like him to look all the while gently gaining his trust by talking to him and stroking him. When I collected him I was delighted - it's the best he's ever looked (and smelled!), you now have us as customers for life!
Lisa is a gift. Teo is probably one of the biggest and most awkward chaps to groom. He needs understanding patience and gentleness. Lisa provides all of this and love to boot! I do and will continue to recommend her to all that I meet with dogs that need her service, from a good old brush to a full make over. Teo loves her, so I won't go to anyone else Well done Lisa a fab service for both owner and their best ever friends.xxx
