"My shih tzu can
be very nervous with people he doesn't know so I tried to find a
groomer who was understanding and professional. I discovered
Furrynuff on the internet and took Sam along to meet Trudy. That was
in 2010 and we've used her ever since.
professionalism is exemplary in both knowledge and attention to
detail. I have never hesitated to leave Sam's grooming style in
Trudy's very capable hands and always been absolutely delighted to
collect my very happy smart little boy 2 hours later!
friendly, gold star service I would recommend Trudy to any dog owner
looking for a conscientious professional groomer."
J & Samye Ling (Shih Tzu)
visits for his professional grooming appointment every 5-7 weeks. He
is kept in a short, manageable but highly stylised trim which both
flatters him and allows him to maintain an active lifestyle. Over the
years Theresa & I have experimented with various styling
elements. Here he shows off flared legs & a softer, rounded head
piece inspired by the styling popular in many Asian countries, where
it is practised as an art form.
decided to use a professional groomer because I hardly have time to
run a comb through my own hair let alone detangle two muddy sprocker
spaniels. I soon realised that grooming is more than making your dog
look tidy. I've learnt so much about the dogs' health and wellbeing
from Trudy thanks to her grooming report when I collect them. She
really gets to know the dogs and Molly and Banjo's coats are cut to
suit their love of hedgerows, muddy fields and swimming. She's great."
W & Banjo & Molly (Sprocker Spaniels)
likes to keep Molly & (Molly's son,) Banjo comfortable in
practical short-but-stylish lifestyle trims. Their 8 weekly
appointment schedule is ideal for their fast growing dense silky
coats, ensuring professional intervention before they become too
matted. Sporting their fluffy topknots they maintain distinctively
characteristic head pieces loved by their humans!
"Sophie is a
Miniature Schnauzer mix from Alaska. She came into my life in 2001
when I found her in the local animal shelter as a five month old. Her
hair lacks the wiriness that pure-bred Schnauzers generally have and
good grooming with a skilled groomer has always been a part of her
life. When she and I settled in Scotland, finding other professionals
for her needs was as important as finding quality care providers for
mine. With help from her new veterinarian, we were able to connect
with Trudy. She has taken Sophie into her care and has kept her
comfortable and looking very smart. Sophie needs to have most of her
body kept clipped quite short including her belly as her extremely
soft, fine hair mats so easily. Therefore, the typical Schnauzer cut
with a skirt and all just doesn't do and Trudy accommodates this very
well. Sophie likes Trudy, is happy to be left with her, always comes
home looking good and it is easy for me to care for her between her
regularly scheduled grooming appointments. All of that is very
important to me and I appreciate Trudy's gentle care of Sophie and
her professionalism in her dealings with me. Trudy and Dr Andy are
two very important people in Sophie's new life here in Scotland and I
am so pleased about that."
S & Sophie (Miniature Schnauzer)
visits on a 5 weekly appointment schedule, to maintain the 'just
groomed' appearance which appeals to Sharon. Having become accustomed
to regular grooming since a pup, Sophie knows the grooming process
intimately, aided by Sharon's attentive coat management between
appointments to prevent it from matting. This ensures that her time
with me being professionally groomed is a pleasurable, efficient
process of dog & human working together.
"Having moved to
the area in 2011 I obtained Trudy’s number from the internet.
Millie had never been professionally groomed before because we used
to live on Shetland and I didn’t know of anyone there but I had
always had my previous dog groomed regularly. I am so glad I found
Trudy. She is professional, friendly and very good at her job. Millie
has looked great ever since. Trudy also spots any problems while she
is grooming and gives tips on what to do to prevent them getting
worse and best of all Millie thinks she’s great."
P & Millie (Cocker Spaniel)
visits on an 8 weekly appointment schedule. Her coat is trimmed to
show off her beautiful markings to good effect. Her feathering is
kept shorter, for life as a pet, with her feet tightly trimmed to
repel debris & dirt. Her full ear furnishings are trimmed to
frame her face, giving her a flattering, characteristically tender
"We decided to
use a pet groomer due to the breed of dog (working cocker spaniel)
and to manage her coat. We have had Katie's coat cut on a few
occasions now and the last cut two cuts were definitely the best and
exactly what we wanted. We didn't want anything fancy but more
practical to manage her coat in between visits.
are very happy with the service and with Trudy building up a good
relationship with Katie.
know Trudy from doing work for her building her grooming studio.
Being local is something that appeals to me too.
T & Katie (Cocker Spaniel)
visits on an 8-10 weekly appointment schedule. Her coat is
beautifully glossy, despite an active country lifestyle – swimming
in rivers & dashing through fields. Katie's feet &
furnishings are kept trim to avoid attracting too much organic
matter. This styling also helps minimise the amount of time Katie's
coat & skin stay damp, which can result in 'wet dog smell'. A
thorough hydromassaging bath helps to keep her skin in healthy
condition; sloughing off excess dead skin cells & stimulating the
blood supply to healthy underlying skin.
