Here are a selection of testimonials from clients. Please also see my Facebook page – FURst impressions dog grooming salon.

Joanne, Indy & Bailey

I would like to tell everyone how pleased I am with the groom and trim Paula does for my dog, Indy.

I had seen Paula around at the shows and was always impressed how well turned out her dogs were.  I got chatting to her one day, explained I hadn’t a clue about grooming, especially trimming a dog and she offered to trim Indy for me.

Pardon the pun I bit her hand off!  What a difference she made to my dog with a proper groom and trim.

I now take Indy every month to Paula as she is brilliant, not only good at the bathing, grooming and trimming, but seems to have a natural rapport with dogs and puts them at ease.

I was so pleased I brought my other dog to her who is extremely nervous.  He desperately needed a bath and a trim.  Well, within minutes he was at ease, licking her and giving Paula his paw!

Her parlour is immaculate and designed for maximum comfort for your dog. Her prices are extremely reasonable and I would happily recommend FURst IMPRESSIONS.


Pat & Sadie

Really pleased with the groom Paula did on Sadie.  Afterwards she looked much younger than her 10 years of age


Ang, Dave & Jerry

We own a Sprollie (Jerry), who is 2 1/2 yrs old and full of beans, he just won’t sit still!

We wanted to have him groomed properly as his hair was getting quite long with tangles appearing, but I was worried about getting him to sit still for his make-over, but booked him into FURst IMPRESSIONS.Well we are totally delighted.

Paula really made Jerry feel comfortable, he was relaxed and seemed to enjoy being pampered!

Paula has ‘Magic’ when it comes to dogs and certainly knows how to treat them as if they were her own. Jerry looks just amazing and I can’t stop looking at him. I would definitely recommend FURst IMPRESSIONS to anyone who wants their dog to be loved and looked after, and the hair cut exceeded what we asked for, the attention to detail was more than we could ask for. Jerry even had a Bandanna given to him that he wears with pride, delighted customers and a very happy Jerry! We will definitely be bringing him back.

Barbara & Len, Jazz & Kelly

I would like to say that the shampoo and grooming treatment my two black long haired german shepherds received from Paula was faultless. The care and patience shown to both my dogs showed just how much time and consideration Paula took into account their individual personalities. Kelly is 10 years old and Jazz 3 years old.  Paula’s patience with both of them was a pleasure to see. Both Kelly and Jazz had no problems with the different techniques Paula used. They both looked beautiful, with shiny coats and no knots anywhere and they smelt out of this world. WELL DONE PAULA AND THANK YOU.

Hello Aunty Paula my mum and I would like to thank you for being so kind and gentle today when you groomed me, also for making me look even more gorgeous. Love Loads Olive. xx

Andrea and Jake (puppy Westie)

OMG I can’t believe how different he looked.  Absolutely amazing.  Jake came home smelling beautiful and even now he still smells and looks great. You did an amazing job and made him feel safe and at home.  Thank you so much.

Lowri and Franklin (King Charles Cavalier)

My King Charles Franklin went for his first ever groom and Paula was fantastic with him. He looked lush, smelt fabulous and can’t wait till the next time. I’d recommend this lady to anyone. She done a fab job on Franklin, thank you.

Cheryl and Oscar (Shih Tzu x Bichon – 4 months old)

We looked for a groomer on the web and contacted Paula. We were impressed when we met her and she gave us the confidence to let her loose on our pup Oscar. After 2 socialisation visits Oscar seemed to be happy to be handled and groomed by Paula. “G” day arrived and he was duly delivered and left (for the very first time). He looked happy and relaxed and when Paula rang us to tell he was ready for collection we couldn’t get to Paula’s quick enough.  What we saw was a happy and very smart Oscar. We promptly booked another appointment knowing he will be looked after and and look and smell fab. We would highly recommend Paula, nothing is too much trouble and Oscar couldn’t stop kissing her goodbye. Thanks Paula. Cheryl and Keith.

Karen and Malli (Bichon)

Paula is a fantastic groomer and genuine dog lover.  Malli my large bichon loves his monthly visit and always comes out looking and smelling gorgeous.

Lauren and Elmo (Cavapoo)

My Cavapoo Elmo has just had his first groom with Paula and she was fantastic.  He looked and smelt gorgeous. Very professional.  We will always use Paula from now on.

Hannah and Millie (Yorkshire Terrier)

Millie loves her new hair cut, thanks Paula… and she smells lovely.
