Established 1979 with an enviable reputation, we are proud to groom the dogs of Somerset, and beyond.   We also offer Dog Boarding in our purpose built kennel (Opening April 2018)  


All dogs coming into our care are treated as our own.  We groom all dogs to the style required by the owner, using the Kennel Club breed standard where appropriate.   Time and attention is given to the health and welfare of all our doggy friends whilst we are bathing, clipping or stripping their coats.

All grooming is carried out at here in Fivehead.  We have been operating from our home for many years.   Due to expansion of the business in the last couple of years, we are planning to build a new grooming room this summer.

We have also been asked on numerous occasions by our customers if we can care for their dogs whilst they are away, either for the day or on holiday.  In April 2018 we are opening phase 1 of our new boarding facility.    The kennels will be purpose built and will house dogs up to Labrador size.   The service we offer bridges the gap between home boarding and the large boarding kennels available locally.  Your dog/s will be in a calm environment and get lots of 1-1 attention and playtime in our paddock.  As we live on site, our guests will be treated as our own whilst they are with us.   The kennel will be fully licenced by the local authority.   We hope that Phase 2 for larger dogs will be introduced in 2019.

We are fully insured and continue to undergo regular training and development.   Everyone working here is trained in Canine First Aid  – see our “Who are we” page for more information on qualifications.

ASHGATE GROOMING offers grooming to all breeds of dogs and we are one of the few in the area to offer specialist knowledge of hand stripping coats.  As breeders of WHWT we have been preparing our own dogs for international competition for many years, with a great degree of success,, we have the knowledge and experience to train owners and groomers in this skill too.  See our sister website www.ashgate-westies.co.uk

We keep our Facebook page updated on a regular basis and welcome feedback from our customers.   You can see photos of our grooms and we will be updating the site with progress reports on the new building projects.
