Took Charlie my westie for the first time today. She was shaking when we got there but within a few minute Melanie had calmed her down & I left her feeling happ…y that she would be fine. Went back to collect a very happy & calm westie. Her cut is perfect and she smells gorgeous. She is a very nervous dog & Melanie made her & me feel calm & she really has looked after her and showed her lots of love and care. Charlie is now happily snoozing after her fun morning. Fully recommended.

It was Dali’s first time at a groomers but he was very calm and seemed to enjoy the experience by Melanie, he came away smelling very clean and well groomed, he even let her cut his nails which he hates! Very good service will be taking him again would recommend highly.

Took my two Lhasa Apso’s and Jack Russell cross to Hairy Barkers. All three cuts have been first class, I will definitely be taking my pooches back and recommending to all my doggie friends!

My 4 year old cocker spaniel, Molly visited Hairy Barkers for the first time yesterday. She has had many haircuts before but this one is the best, Melanie did exactly what I wanted. Molly looks and smells lovely. Will recommend Hairy Barkers to everyone

Excellent service from Melanie. My Labradoodle, Oscar, was very calm and relaxed when he came home and he looked amazing. Already booked in for his next visit!

My border terrier Riley had his first visit to Melanie at Hairy Barkers at the weekend to be stripped. She has done a first class job, he looks and smells gorgeous. Would highly recommend anyone to go here, very professional and friendly service.

Ellie is grateful for her best hair cut ever.


I have just had my little Cavalier King Charles spaniel Louis groomed today by Melanie and she has done a fabulous job. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and I would highly recommend visiting.

Couldn’t be any happier with the service and finish that Melanie and Hairy Barkers had done for my dog Terri.

Hairy Barkers has such a professional, clean and modern grooming shop with everything you could want to have your dog pampered with.

They’re so caring, asking if there is anything they need to made aware of or special conditions, always looking to make it the best experience.

If you want a professional and caring service, with 5* grooming – you NEED to use Hairy Barker’s.

Thanks for changing Terri from a woolly bear to a handsome man again.

Freddie looked so good after his first groom with Mel! I am so pleased, Mel squeezed Freddie in with less than 12 hours notice! Amazing! Will definitely be booking Freddie in again!

Excellent service, Melanie was lovely and Freddie wasn’t stressed after his couple of hour treatment of a hair pull. Thanks you so much and see you in a couple of weeks for bath time.
