Where hand and paw come together

About me

Quality Pet Care


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.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

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.

A few of the satisfied visitors to Gentle Touch Dog Grooming

 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
