About Us

For 38 years we have been trimming dogs of all breeds from our home at Ashgate in the beautiful county of Somerset.

Our team of Jacky,  Kath & Emily are all passionate about dog grooming and undertake regular training to ensure grooming skills are kept current.  Sue who has been trimming for most of her working life is now easing up and concentrating on our show dogs, but is available to advise and guide our trainees as she has a vast knowledge of breed standards and her experience is too valuable for us to loose.   Emily has recently qualified and holds City & Guilds Level 3 in Dog Grooming.

Whilst we specialise in stripping terriers, we also trim a wide range of dogs, which include pedigree and cross-breeds.   We do not like to have lots of dogs in the Trimming Shed at one time, and we therefore, only book one or two dogs in at a time.

Before we accept a dog for trimming, we ask a number of questions and ask you to sign a consent card which covers us, and your dog, by our insurance.  We are insured for the work we carry out.

Our promise to you is that your dog will be well cared for and treated like one of our own whilst he/she is with us and we hope that you will feel comfortable leaving your dog with us..

We also breed and show West Highland White Terriers.  To find out more about our show dogs please visit www.ashgate-westies.co.uk.  .
